This city, like many others, needs more money and they'll take all measures they can identify to get that money. In Youngstown, I would recommend that everyone travel at least 5 mph below the posted limit until these cameras are removed from use.

Very sad commentary on the world we have allowed to be created for our following generations.

Re: pigs. I'm guessing it beats the hell out of drinking with politicians.

I believe that this hypersensitivity developed via political correctness will ultimately lead us to become nothing more than robot-like beings, designed purposefully for the coming New World Order. One can hardly make a statement or perform an action which is not construed to be offensive to someone or some group ready to protest. Governments like protest--it divides us into more controllable, smaller groups.

This gem of our valley cannot endure the 20 year wait for completion of a planned fix. We continue to look for other entities to fix what is ours. The park is not used only by local residents (who we would have pay the entire price of "the fix"), but many citizens throughout Ohio and western Pennsylvania. Daily usage fees could help with the costs of "the fix". I also believe that many local firms would consider assisting in construction work and planning the job. Let's not forget that we still have many extremely skilled people in our valley who would be willing to assist in resolving this problem.

Sanctuary cities!!! An illegal situation forced upon us by the lunatics in D.C. The concept of these zones, located in many areas of our nation, are only one of the many causes behind the destruction of our legal immigration laws.

Sure wish I had read this article before the article describing the evening of checkpoint wonders. I'm personally delighted to see the funding cut back. I've always believed that our local police departments are well enough trained to find impaired drivers without using entrapment methods or targeting bars and restaurants.

I still consider these stops to be ineffective, a waste of funds and an infringement upon the rights of citizens. Would we be having these checkpoints if we were not sucking grant funds from the federal treasury? I suspect not.

The halls in the offices of our elected officials are crowded with lobbyists. I hope Mr. Hagan will fit right in.
