Yes, sad but inevitable. I don't see how the bishop can sell the values of Catholic education anymore when the Catholic schools are atrophying at an alarming rate. St. Christine, St. Charles, and Holy Family will hang on for a while. But the end is in sight for them too. It's only a matter of time.

"What has been will be again....there is nothing new under the sun." The name Boardman Glenwood Junior High is not a new name. This was the same moniker used back in the 50s when the school was built.And doesn't "intermediate School" mean the same as "Middle School." Aren't these names interchangeable? So, Boardman, what's new and innovative about these new "changes?"

Where was the outcry from the concerned citizens when the Board appointed the golfer ED, a man totally unfit for the job, by training, education, and experience?Did they think a golfer would have. interests beyond the golf course? Mr. Young has the credentials for the job. The concerned citizens are fighting a loosing battle if they think they are going to get the current ED fired and the levy repealed. The Concerned Citizens have too much time on their hands. They need to direct their effort to achievable goals and stop tilting at windmills. (ED stands for Executive Director, not, well you know.)

I don't know what these people want from the superintendent. The levy passed and now he's trimming the fat and streamlining the park's operations. Isn't that what we all want in a manager of public property? Change is always difficult for those who cannot or won't change. I say kudos to Mr. Young for being a leader and not merely a custodian of the way things have always been. After all, he had to clean up after several years of the golfer's mismanagement. These so-called concerned citizens should go home to their families and let Mr. Young do the job we are paying him for.

My question! Why would a guy with such impressive academic credentials want to be mayor of a little, moribund city?

I have never had this explained before. Now I know why the main thoroughfares are neglected. Thanx for the insight.

We can suddenly get federal grant money for this project, but not a cent to resurface downtown streets and the main arteries that lead to the city. How come? Wick, South Ave., Market St., as well as the streets and crossings around central square are a disgrace. Why concentrate on Lincoln Ave?

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.
