Will someone please tell why, with the Youngstown Plan in place, we need a local Board of Education, AND a superintendent? These people, with a record of opposing the Youngstown Plan, will continue to be a negative influence, attempting to sabotage at every opportunity the work of the new commission. Let's get rid of these political opportunists.

What a mess! We can expect more infighting when the new CEO takes over. The superfluous Board will not accept the authority of the commission.

I predict the Francis will be forced into retirement sometime after his eightieth birthday, surrendering to the awesome power of the Curia, Meanwhile, the gossip and intrigue among the pointy hat ilk will continue unabated. Turning an aircraft carrier takes an entire crew; the Holy Father is alone on the bridge while those actually maneuvering the ship are in the engine room where all the power is.

A quote from Walker Percy? I didn't know anyone read him anymore.

Why is there no skating at Lake Newport as there once was? Skating on Lake Newport used to be one of the highlights of the winter season.

Dwight, we give millions to some rich business man in loans and grants (hand outs) to further his private enterprise from which he hopes to realize a profit but complain about the food stamps program and the "welfare queens." Those like him are the same guys who complain about government interference while holding out their hands for government money, corporate welfare I believe they call it. The mayor should concentrate on repaving the downtown streets, especially central square and the three main arteries to the city, Wick Ave., Market Street, and South Avenue instead of promoting a luxury apartment complex for a few well off suits. First things first.

Without the infusion of millions of dollars from local, state, and federal governments, this project would have never gotten off the ground. Does this mean we taxpayers are owners of the Wick Tower? I still cannot understand why anyone would want to pay $1600 and more to live in downtown Youngstown. I love Youngstown, but it is not an attractive city.

Fleischer is an asset to our orchestra, but I don't know he can do justice to three bands especially when one is in Alaska. Also, I hope he adds another classical concert next season, perhaps two in the fall, one in September and one in November. After all, it is a "symphony" orchestra.
