Hey Chessie - I think you're missing the point here.
You're going on and on about how they "get away" with it and "it's just standard Youngstown". . .They got caught and were cited. They haven't "got away" with anything. If you had a point at all - they would have walked away with no citations or repercussions and there would be no story in the Vindicator about 5 Football players getting cited for drinking!
Apparently the system works after all - your opinion not withstanding.

So. . . were there massive fish kills in 1986 and 1989 (the two months of June that had more rain than we have just experienced)?
I don't see anything in news archives that say there was. If that's true, then what could be the reason for the fish dye-off?
If the sewage overflow did, in fact, happen in 1986 and 1989, the only reason I can see for the fish not dying off is what NoBS stated above - there was enough water in the lakes to dilute the incoming sewage - sparing the fish's lives and swimmers enjoyment.
What I don't understand is why raw sewage overflow is piped into a land-locked lake when there is a river right next to it that will self-clean. Who was the genius that came up with that idea?

The nice part is that she can demand all she likes and it wont mean a damn thing.
If Council does not agree on redistricted lines, the mayor will simply draw them himself without their input. Since they can not even seem to agree on the color of shiet, it seems that this will be the way the districts get redrawn. . . .
Finally these bums can be shown the door.

Yes, any other course of action would be wrong, and God knows, people in public service jobs never do anything that's wrong. So because you say it's "Highly Unlikely" there should be no controls to make sure that it "Doesn't Happen".
OK Joe - we'll just trust ya. . . . . not.
What's of concern to me is what's best for Youngstown (and by extension - me and my family who live here). This is why residency needs to be a requirement.

So - JoeFromHubbard, lets say the you live in Hubbard and you get a job with the Parks Department in the city of Youngstown.
Along comes the state of Ohio and they have grant money available for a new park. Both the city of Hubbard and city of Youngstown are vying for it and obviously, the parks departments of those respective cities are in charge of applying for and justifying why it is that each city should get this money more than the other.
Are you telling me that, as a member of the parks department in Youngstown you are going to give it your best possible effort to make sure that the city of Youngstown gets the park money rather than getting a brand new park in your own back-yard city of Hubbard?
The answer is "of course you wouldn't".
Employment residency is a necessity. If the city of Youngstown is not good enough for you to live in, you should get a job in Hubbard instead. Either way - you should have to directly live with the situation you create while doing your job. This is why residents of this city voted for this amendment. All these suburbanites are just fine coming into Youngstown to work and extract money, but it's a terrible dangerous place otherwise and they want nothing to do with it.
Cool - stay in your own little suburb and work there where you feel safe instead.

What he is saying Silence, is this:
Since my opponent in the last election that I spent the better part of the last year smack-talking is going to be the next mayor and the "Mayors Secretary" holds that position at the pleasure of the mayor, I am going to resign before the new mayor takes office and kicks my ass out the door shortly after firing me!

Hey RobX - sometimes an accident is just that - an accident.
Otherwise it would be called an "On-Purpose". And if you have never done something that you didn't mean to, you're a lucky guy, but the rest of everyone in the world have.

I'm sure you're right.

No point 76.
Ron Eiselstein (Utica-Shale - google his real name) this cities biggest "Know it all" is simply going to keep spilling his "I know better" and "you uneducated people" and "brain drain" crap until he's tired of talking. Unfortunately he never seems to get tired of hearing himself talk - God knows I do.
His pseudo-intelectual BS not withstanding, he clearly is the one who knows nothing. From his Shrimp Farm to his illegal Timbering to his portfolio of unpaid taxes to whatever his latest snake-oil campaign is, he just talks and talks and talks. . . . never listens - never takes his own advice and educates himself.
Sure wastes a ton of bandwidth here giving bad advice and idiot ass opinions to anyone who will listen (both of them).

Actually Lyndsey Hughes does have evidence. The text messages that matter have not been released due to this being evidence in an on-going investigation.
DeMaine Kitchen paid his taxes only "because" he was running for mayor and knew it would be brought up (since he had never paid them before this the assumption is that he would not have other wise).
And McNally is not currently begin indicted - the charges were dropped due to lack of evidence. They can be re-filed, but as of yet - have not been. There is no current indictment.
What this means in English is that DeMaine did it and McNally has been accused of it, but is not being charged.
Quit voting by Race and start voting based on qualification and fact. Personally, I feel that neither of these ass-clowns should be running the city of Youngstown, but unlike the Vindicator, we are left with having to choose the lesser of 2 evils.
The lesser of these 2 evils is McNally. (I just threw up in my mouth a little bit while saying that - in case you were interested.)
