While it is laudable that Trumbull County has someone who is proficient in procuring federal grant funds, it is questionable as to whether or not these funds will actually ever be used to attain the stated objectives. Unfortunately, grant funds do not require a high degree of accountability. We can only hope that common sense and compassion will be utilized in making prudent disbursement decisions.

I hate to admit to this but I think the ACLU is making the correct demands as related to asset seizure.

These two girls should be another great example of why we should all be very careful about what we post online. We have no idea as to who may be watching our posts (including this one) or what their interpretation of our posts may be. Parents should take the time to review just what their children may be posting as a small "invasion of privacy" could well save a life.

Many of those imprisoned pose no threat to society, have served the time given at time of sentencing and should have already been released. An investigation into parole board member actions should be demanded by newspapers throughout this state. Such an investigation would reveal some of the many reasons for continuing overcrowding of the facilities.

Nice lady but it appears to me that YSU is doing the right thing.

Seems to me it would have saved taxpayers a considerable amount of money had these good folks invited a couple of the people up there to come down here and explain "How they dun it".

Looks to me like this was well handled. The question remains as to whether or not it would have been handled in this manner if there had not been so much publicity.

Reestablishing our principles should not indicate that we should leave our borders open to any and all who would enter our nation. Our principles would guide us to rid our government and our legal system of the rampant corruption which exists. These principles would not allow us to waste taxpayers money on uprisings in foreign nations. Editorially we preach principles while we exhibit few, we preach morality while showing moral compass in only a few chosen areas and we preach good will to all while offering little. Those in positions of power, especially government have continued to pervert the principles which once defined our nation and its citizens--and we allow them to continue to do so.

It may cost between $700,000-$800,000 to run Fellows Riverside Gardens and the DD Davis Center but what is the income to these facilities from concessions and donations? Could these operating costs be covered by an aggressive donation solicitation program which reaches out to the entire community? It seems all to easy to just keep throwing these levies at the people. Perhaps we should all have to work just a bit harder to obtain the funds needed to protect and preserve this gem entrusted to us.

These six will soon be back in the fight, probably with IS or they will be able to easily infiltrate our nation through our still porous southern border.
