Plain and simple, if you brake the rules of your employer, you get fired. If it was you or me, that is what would happen. I lived in Youngstown for a few years, and I sure am glad I moved out when I did. The Youngstown Police force is a joke! I can name many instances where they were asleep on the job. I had called and told them of a crack house down the street from me on numerous occasions and they flat out told me there was nothing they could do. I caught a kid stealing from my car and had to wait over 4 hours for them to show up, and when they did, they acted like it was a murder. 3 cop cars and 5 officers for one 14 year old kid. Then they asked me why the kid wasn't bloody. They were implying that I should have hit the kid. But, if you park your car with one tire on the sidewalk, watch out 'cause you'll get a ticket!

Well, I have to say that I will miss Hockey in Youngstown. I had never watched a hockey game until the SteelHounds came to town. And I love it! I took my family many times and we all enjoyed it. It is a great time for very little money, easy to get to and just plain fun. As for the Chevy Center, I have gone to many games and concerts there and I think it is wonderfull to have such a nice place in the city to see things like that. To bad more people don't go and experiance it all.

This is not some simple tax. It is an income tax of 2-2.25%. That is $675.00 for a year per person that makes $30,000.00 a year! By the way, there is no lawsuit as of yet, although we are getting preparred to fight this. Those of us that live in the townships are doing fine without Youngstown's so called help. One of the many benefits of living in our township is not having an income tax, although we do pay much higher property taxes. We are currently paying a 40% surcharge on water that is in our township to begin with. Meander Reservoir is in Austintown, North Jackson and Mineral Ridge. The water travels through our township to get to Youngstown, maybe we should add a surcharge to Youngstown to pay for all of the issues we have to put up with having the water district here.
