When is enough enough? It's clear that the voters of Youngstown don't want to ban fracking. The tiny FrackFree group needs to find something else to do.
Maybe the vindy and the TV news should stop giving them their media exposure. Without the free publicity, I wonder how many of them would be involved?

isaac, which do you think the story here is? News or opinion?
As for Poland (and other outer-suburban communities) goes, well, how far can you run? Maybe the answer is to go back to the city, while everyone else is leaving. You should be able to pick up an entire city block, raze the old buildings and put up one nice, new house, then fence the perimeter, for less than one of the cookie-cutter McMansions are going for in some sections of Poland.

Ms Grzelewski and other gun-fearing folk, first, being allowed to carry a firearm is far removed from the shoot-em-up scenario you're acting like you think is going to take place. The truth is, nothing will change except that law-abiding people now have the opportunity to keep themselves on a level playing field with those who ignore the law. If you think a stupid little sign will keep armed bad guys out of somewhere, you're hopelessly naive. Why do you think schools, movie theaters, and other places where guns aren't allowed is where the mass shootings take place? By you peoples' thinking, those disasters should all happen in gun stores.
And, to clarify one of Ms Grzelewski's points, all the "places" she lists where one isn't allowed by law to carry one's gun, they're all government-owned buildings. Not forests. Not parks. I hope everyone can see the difference.

And here we go. They see the wisdom of dredging the lakes, but now the questions start. Here's what you do with the mud: Spread it on farm fields as fertilizer. Crops that grow above ground - grains and so on - grow in the waste from sewage plants. The MCP mud isn't as toxic nor as polluted as that residue.

Here's what's needed: education of the groups of people who routinely disregard the orders the cops give, then whine when the cop reacts to the disregarding of his orders.
This idea that the thugs are such a bad-XXX that they can stand up to the cops, smart off to the cops, and pretty much tell the cops how it's going to be, needs to be forgotten. Once that happens, then we can talk about policing the police.

A few bucks in the appropriate pockets and it'll all go away.

Agreed on the Secondary Laws. Back on topic - states all around us don't need a front license plate. Why does Ohio? And the state is worrying about how to get more money into its coffers - there's a solution right there. Producing half the number of plates means twice the revenue from plate sales (yes, I know most people just need the current year's sticker).

Dredge the lakes!!! Everyone knows that's what needs to be done. The lakes are so shallow the pollutants aren't diluted by the water in the lakes.

Why isn't Gerberry facing theft in office charges? Why is he allowed to pick the watered down, inaccurate misdemeanor charge?
If he was a cop, firefighter, etc, or if he was a YSU employee, what would the vindy's coverage be like?

Redeye, can the lying accuser prove his claims? If not, it's "he said/she said." I'd like to think "innocent until proven guilty" would prevail.
