Ya you're right georgejeanie, lets do away with anything people can spend their money on. Let's close bars, make it illegal for people to drive to Mountaineer and waste their money at another location that doesn't benefit our area and close all of the internet games that are in the area as well. It's called self control. Let's also ignore the fact that 1,000 jobs will be created as well as a 1,000 temporary jobs of construction. Let's just pass on all of the taxes it will create and increase of other businesses that will beneift. Way to go with the old Youngstown mentality that we don't want anything here. The steel mills are closed and we must move on. Get over it.

What do we pay taxes for then? I was under the assumption the taxes paid for the jail?? Where are they going then? Send the prisoners to CCA then if the county wants to charge. If the city has to pay then pay a private prison since thats what the county thinks they are.

Amen cambridge! Can't have prayer in school because church and school need to be separate so they need to mind their own business. They have nothing to do with school or school functions. If a student makes the committment to an activity then he/she needs to fullfill that committment. Can the preacher come to my work and give my boss an excuse for me not to work on sundays???

"VanSuch said there will be deductions from those royalties."
-translated- "we have to pocket money for ourselves".
-How about you give the employees who havent had a raise in ten years some appreciation!

Hey Stocker, what happened to innocent until proven guilty? Also, you bring up suspended driving status and your insurance cant cover him. How cant the insurance cover him the dui isnt on his record yet because he hasn't gone to court! Which by the way he can go and win and get his driving status back. And I'm sure it wouldve stayed out of the news if a certain someone in the dept wouldnt have leaked it. Shame on you Stocker, I hop he goes to court, wins and then sues the sh$t out of struthers.

@vsdevpay--Read carefully, as you can see veterans DO get 20% bonus pionts as stated in the Ohio Revised Code section 124. I took the liberty of copying it for you. Enjoy your reading. Oh, and I agree with "steelhead". It has everything to do with the "system" not veterans. First, its two different lists in Y-town, one for whites then one for blacks. Then they combine the lists but you still have people like ex chief Hughes' son getting hired over more qualified people above him and now they're giving jobs away to veterans. Nothing against veterans as well but what happened to hiring the most qualified candidate? Veterans already get 20% bonus points as I mentioned before and as you will read so now thats not good enough? Lets just give them jobs now and circumvent the whole proicess?
" – Veteran’s Credit On Open Competitive Examination"

If a passing grade is attained in the written examination.
A person who has been discharged from the Armed Forces of the United States for medical reasons must submit written proof that said person was completely and honorably discharged from the respective service branch in order to receive Veterans Credit.
