A move to Chaney would be ideal if the city schools would be willing to sell and move their students to Volney. Chaney is mostly new and sports a beautiful auditorium, gym a great football field and is located in a nice neighborhood close to Mill Creek Park. Murry is making a big mistake caving in to the big money. But in a few years he'll be gone to a bigger diocese and his successor can deal with the consequences of his ill-advised decision.

Before you can cane them in public, don't you have to catch them first?

If Mr. de Souza is such a poor writer why do the responders continue to read his column? My guess is that they never miss any of his Sunday columns. If I were Mr. de Souza I would interpret that as a compliment.

Putting disruptive student in a separate school has been tried -- unsuccessfully.Who wants to teach in a school full of delinquents! I agree with the Vindy's editorial -- Get them out of the system. Of course some bleeding heart will say they are being deprived of an education. The teachers are afraid of the principals, the principals are afraid of the superintendent, the superintendent is afraid of the Board of Education, and the kids? they ain't afraid of anybody.

Obviously the problem is the mother who continually comes to her son's defense --in this case even before the facts are in. This isn't the last time we will see this kid's picture in the Vindy.

“I don’t know what her past history is, but I don’t believe this is the type of performance that we are accustomed to" What the hell does this mean? This superintendent must have been absent the day they taught simple, English prose in school. I'll bet he is an ex-football coach. All superintendents are, you know.

That's a business decision they will have to make. But if they move I hope they don't make a mess at the new site.

Now if we can just get the York Mahoning company to join in and clean up the mess that is their property. Occupying the entire corner at Canfield Road and Glenlwood Ave., their place is the biggest eyesore in the Idora Park area. Much of their inventory, crates, and boxes are stored outside making the entire property look like a junkyard. Come on, York Mahoning, be a good citizen and a good neighbor and contribute to the revitalization of Fosterville.

There's a brand new high school in youngstown with an enrollment of less than a hundred students. I refer to chaney high school Why not approach the city Board of Ed about buying this under used bldg. Current chaney students could be enrolled in brand new volney rogers and brand new wilson.

Murry has a tiger by the tail. If Mooney gets a new school, Ursuline will want one; its buildings are older than Mooney's Obviously what's needed is one new school centrally located, but the respective alumni will never agree to this. Why? Football.
