They should be banned from Public Office for life, and McNally should resign as Mayor immediately.

What Y-town needs is an F5 Tornado to blow through and cause $5,000,000 worth of improvements.

I first met Alvin over 35 years ago when I was also a Reserve Officer in Struthers. Alvin is a really great guy. Enjoy your retirement.

Simple solution. Wave the requirement that the winner has to be present to win the full amount.

According to this, the City is required by law to post signs on all State Roads that are not Freeways stating that Traffic Cameras are in-use. If the City has not done so, all citations issued are invalid. Could the Vindy's legal team look into this?http://codes.ohio.gov/orc/4511.094

Looking at the photo an wondering "shouldn't he be wearing a hard hat and safety harness on a construction job"? Are those tennis shoes steel toe?

"Park commissioners on Monday expressed support for the dredging option, which would remove built-up sediments from the lakes and therefore increase the lakes’ capacity"
It's been many years since the park "Lowered" the water level in Lake Newport to "Decrease" capacity to create a "Wildlife Area" in approximately 1/4 of the lake. They removed the Boathouse which was a great facility where you could rent a canoe or buy a snack, and there were nice grassy areas with picnic tables. Years ago I remember Newport as being a beautiful lake. Now the south end of the lake is overgrown and actually looks like more of an eyesore. The lucky wildlife that has moved in gets to live in an environment polluted with bacteria and chemicals from fertilizers. A big contributor to the E-coli levels could be from the over abundance of Geese that frequent the park. About a month ago I took my 86 year old Father for a ride through the park. He commented on how ragged the park looked, compared to how nice the park used to look. Several areas around Lake Newport which used to be well kept grassy meadows with picnic tables are now overgrown eyesores. The park has placed ugly signs in the middle of these eyesores declaring them "Wildlife Areas" and people are now unable to use these areas for picnics or other activities. The size of these areas is very small compared to the overall size of the park, and will have practically no impact on the amount of wildlife living in the park. I'm am all for keeping the portion of the park that runs from Rt. 224 south to Western Reserve Road untouched. I am also happy to see the work that the Park District does with their properties throughout the county such as returning the former sod farm on Western Reserve Road back to its natural state. The portion of Mill Creek Park that runs from Rt. 224 North to Mahoning Ave. should be treated just like the name says. "Park", not Mill Creek Wildlife Preserve" so people can go and enjoy the park. Cut the over grown grass, replace the picnic tables and restore some of the parking so people can actually enjoy the facilities. Or we could just put "Wild Life Area" signs at the Golf Course, Wick Recreation Area and Fellows Riverside Gardens and let them grow over as well.

I hope Austintown fixes Westchester Drive. The repaving job which was done last year was a total joke. They milled the road and paved over bad spots in the road without properly repairing them. Now, less than a year later the road is almost un-drivable. The Vindy needs to investigate and see who should be held responsible for such shoddy work. Either the paving contractor for doing such a poor job, or Austintown for trying to get off cheap. Either way, it's the taxpayers who will end up footing the bill.

Another way to "TAX" the masses while by-passing Due Process of Law.
