Sorry, no featured properties currently.
So the Religious Right wants everyone to kowtow to their wishes. Everyone must believe as they believe. And apparently, they believe they have the right to force women to have babies, even the drug addicted and mentally challenged, but that same Religious Right refuses to give any help whatsoever to those same babies they would force women to have. You see, their religion is very important to them, but not as important as The Almighty Dollar. So the unborn have rights, but once they're born they forfeit those rights.

Instead of spending money on delusional things like roundabouts, the county needs to pave their roads. When Youngstown City roads make the county roads suffer by comparison, the county should be ashamed of itself.

Judge Cosgrove still has it wrong, but at least she handed out some punishment. She should have been of the opinion that what Sciortino did was wrong, therefore he's to be punished. Instead, she says he's being punished because others are watching.So if nobody was watching, I wonder what she'd have done?
And there's that phrase that the guilty always throw out there - "Everyone else does it!" Sorry, but wrong is wrong, no matter who does it. That's something these idiots just don't get.
But at least Sciortino got a little punishment this time. And isn't it ironic? 11 felonies and 6 misdemeanors, including such offenses as bribery, money laundering, corruption, and so on, is plea-bargained down to something akin to jaywalking. But using a work computer to do non-work things results in months of incarceration and a more severe probation than he got from Judge Burnside for much more serious infractions.

They need to go after the POS that abused the dog and made it that way to begin with.

Why is everyone - the public as well as the workers - so frustrated with their elected officials? Here's one reason: Niles passed a new tax that was sold to them with the promise that laid off cops and firemen would be rehired. That has not been done and apparently has no chance whatever of being done. The people feel they've been lied to. Good luck EVER getting another tax levy passed in Niles!
Beyond that, if the rank and file have a list of "dead wood" at the administration level, first, I'm not a bit surprised that that same administration doesn't want that list made public. And second, the vindy would be remiss if it didn't obtain and publish that list.Especially since the vindy sees nothing wrong with publishing lists of public employees along with their wages gross and net, hours worked, and all that.

Remember this the next time the city - or ANY politician anywhere - wants to cut the budget, and the first entity they look at is the fire department.

Looks to me like Janofa is trying to spin things. What he says doesn't even make sense. I wonder why he's reacting like this? The normal response would be along the lines of admitting he messed up, and promising it won't happen again. His response sure is curious.
And I'm glad to see the other districts going on record.

Sounds like someone's trying to do a little spinning to try and save face. Sorry, Janofa, you dropped the ball and were called on it. Man up.

So, Poland Schools are breaking the law, and they try to blame a 16-year-old student (who called them on it) rather than manning up and admitting they were scamming free money from the students and their families.
Good job, Jeff Vrable!
Now, how many OTHER schools are pulling this same scam?

Exactly, DwightK. The law is clearly written, and the Poland school system is being called out for violating that law. I must add, many of the other schools around the area do the same - the kids pay for the buses. I find it curious that none of the other schools have had anybody weigh in here. They must know they're in the wrong, too.
Kudos to Jeff Vrable Jr. You did the right thing. Be strong!
