It's shocking how many people are shot just sitting in their cars in Youngstown.

In one article the school board wants to kick out the state commission and take back control of the schools. In another article the board can't even get fire doors to close.

Good to see the Mahoning County Sheriff's Office represented so well by its employees.

Given how many children are being diagnosed with some sort of emotional problems now, this may be very helpful. We know a lot more today about how to help these kids rather than punish them.

Reducing council from 7 to 5 is a good start. Having a mayor who isn't under indictment would also be nice.

Parents need to step up. It's their responsibility to make sure kids arrive at school on time, fed, clean, well rested and ready to start the day. If your kid is failing, especially young kids, you better look in the mirror and ask yourself what your problem is.

This was my point:
"The program lets school districts that serve mostly low-income areas to make all students eligible for the free meals"
Take away the low income qualification by doing something to provide jobs and the area no longer meets the qualification.
I completely understand why you guys are upset but you don't look at a hungry kid and say "sorry your mom and dad can't feed you." You help them out and hope they grow up to do the same for others.

I'm guessing two councilors don't want to lose their jobs.

I understand the criticism but teachers have to deal with hungry kids and they are a distraction in the classroom. Of all the things we waste tax dollars on I can't get too worked up over giving a kid some food.
Besides, if we had better paying jobs available to people whole communities wouldn't qualify for free lunches.

There are large number of people who care about the city and try to make it a better place. Then there are those who think they live in a place where pulling guns and shooting people down is perfectly acceptable. They've failed in life so why not put other people's lives in danger? Where are the parents of these fools?
