Can anyone explain to me what is going on that would cause a sudden surge in hotel building in the Youngstown-Liberty-Niles areas?

The district knows which records were entrusted to Mr. Shakeri and knows which records were not returned. In my opinion, not fact-based, Mr. Shakeri gives the appearance of a shake down hustler.

The actions of Eric Holder have contributed negatively to the situation in Ferguson. Should riots occur nationally it would play directly into the hands of the feds and provide an opportunity to declare martial law and, conceivably, to the suspension of second amendment rights of all citizens. Any and all riots must be quelled and all available force used to protect us and our rights.

As a lifelong Democrat, the sleaziness of Mr. Betras and the lemmings who follow him truly sicken me. No politician putting self interest before the interests of the electorate should be tolerated by our community.

We seem to never "get it" in our valley. Aside from tax breaks. there would be little incentive to locate a business here. We seem to care little that our political and judicial systems remain very much corrupted and crime runs rampant. The hands that we thought were feeding us have, instead, bitten us and we are now paying the price.

While some of the goals of the "greenie people" may be admirable, it appears that they have little regard for those impacted.

I cannot help but wonder why we have been so hesitant to label the mideastern conflicts as religious battles until Isis came along. Has our government merely been stupid or has it just been another case of dumbing down the populace via political correctness?

I've heard stories (none verified) where police, assisting an ambulance call, ask the non-patient for permission to "Look around" the home. If a weapon is seen, it has been seized. They are also looking for any evidence of drugs or anything else "out of the ordinary". Police have also been known to ask for a social security number for some unknown reason.

It appears to me that Tim Ryan stands for nothing but that which would be obvious to anyone. Where does he stand on border security and illegal immigration, Islamic terrorism, coal mining and usage, gun control or any other controversial issue? Get him into one of these issues and I suspect you'll see some really fast side-stepping. He'll continue to be afraid to make any waves; to draw little attention so as to keep that precious job at all costs.

Further evidence of our government pushing us toward total militarization of our entire nation. Why on earth would any school district need an armored vehicle, of grenade launchers or assault rifles? Can any doubt remain that insanity pervades our nation's capitol?
