They do this every year. I love driving up Fifth Ave. and seeing them.

Why don't they just make a deal with the manufacturer and send everyone a coupon or voucher to use at their store of choice that reduces the cost of the bulbs. That way they wont have to pay for delivery and the people who want to participate will go get the bulbs. Everyone likes coupons.

They are beautiful. We were just driving by, and had to drive around the block to look at them again! If you are on the North Side of Youngstown, take a moment and go visit.

Did anyone see Tylor Clark's letter to the editor in Sunday's (05/17/09) Vindicator? I can't seem to locate it anywhere on Vindy.com...

Where is it? Is there a problem with the link? Is this entry lost?

Once again -The loss of the Youngstown Playhouse facility will be a huge loss to the Youngstown area arts community for many reasons. It is a facility designed specifically to handle many different types of community theatrical events: comedy, drama, musicals, dance and variety shows. The facility is designed with enough back stage space to allow multiple sets (such as are needed for musicals) to store offstage or to allow two productions to perform during the same week. (i.e. Youth Theatre and Main Stage productions) The fly loft is exactly tall enough to hide the curtains and backdrops designed to fit the proscenium opening. The stage floor is large enough to paint any backdrop needed. The lighting positions are designed for maximum coverage at a flattering angle. The orchestra pit (what other theatre has an orchestra pit – Powers? –but they rarely open it) houses as many musicians as needed for a musical. The facility’s costume and scenery shops allow the construction of period to modern sets and costumes. The dressing rooms were redesigned during the last renovation to make them larger. The facility’s storage capacity gives the Youngstown Playhouse the ability to lend set pieces, costumes and props to other community and professional theatres in the area. The facility has its own rehearsal space that can double as a performance or reception space. It has a new elevator. Its medium size seating arrangement allows for multiple performances, giving the audience a variety of performance dates to choose from and community performers a longer run to practice their craft. Having their own facility allows the Playhouse to set their own rehearsal and performance schedule. The Youngstown Playhouse facility is unparalleled in this area as a training facility for actors, directors, designers and technicians. I can’t imagine never being able to visit this facility again. It makes me very sad that this important facility has become so damaged that the Youngstown Playhouse organization can no longer hold performances in it. Can’t something be done?Do we really need one more boarded up, unkempt, rotting, untenanted building in Youngstown?

Is anybody asking the parents WHY they are removing their children from the excellent rated Boardman and Austintown Schools? Must be a reason...And why should parents who pay property taxes in that community, who want their children to go to a different school (what ever the reason) pay extra money to the different school? Whether the child goes to the Local School system or not, the child lives in that district and it is the Districts's responsibility to pay for the child's education.
