And that, folks, is still the way things work in our neighborhood.

Though we would like to frequent the downtown eateries and bars more frequently, parking is a major problem for us due to health issues. We are, however, expendable as far as these businesses are concerned. And then there are the panhandlers. I don't recall one time being downtown where someone didn't try to panhandle money from me whether it was near a restaurant or following a performance.

Perhaps the BOE members could each volunteer to spend one day per month in the very classrooms to which we're attempting to attract teachers of minority background. I'd propose that Karen Green also volunteer one day per month. Let's give these folks the opportunity to find out first hand exactly what we're asking of our teachers. Being in the real world might give them insight as to the problems teachers face and enable these "leaders" to become effective recruiters.

Our world has certainly changed in that nearly everything we say may be construed as being racist, sexist, politically incorrect, etc., etc. Are we now all so sensitive or are we just being manipulated to continue dividing us for political purposes?

“We are going to stop people for anything or everything,” Holt said Friday, adding that if the traffic stop didn’t produce evidence of a significant crime or drug problem, the person was going to be released with just a warning. -
If I were to be stopped without reason and nothing illegal was found, why would I get a warning? Thanks for all of the help with the drug problem but stopping citizens for "Anything or everything" seems very wrong.

It appears to me that some members of the BOE have little regard for the well-being of our students. These members seem to be unable to accept constructive criticism and must be replaced ASAP. I would urge the Vindicator to identify the individuals creating problems and push for their resignation. The crisis in which we find Youngstown Schools cannot be tolerated as we are allowing irreparable harm to our students.

A huge loss to Youngstown but not surprising. The person who replaces Hathorn will face the same problems with all of the bickering and whining and petty power plays. Our system will continue to be in distress.

Fantastic job by Kathryn Robison. She has a great future and it's obvious she's worked very hard to earn her awards and funding.

Great work by all involved. Just one of many wonderful programs offered at Mill Creek.

I suspect that Dr. Glatt has been very cautious in his statement by mentioning "International travelers" and avoiding those cases originating with persons crossing our southern border illegally.
