Financial institutions in Valley placing higher premium on private banking

"...turning their attention toward competing for the business of the Valley’s high net-worth clients as the economy improves and the prospects for wealth grow."

Valley's high net-worth clients? Are you sure?

...economy improves and prospects for wealth grow? Are you sure?

The evil high net-worth people of the valley should be arrested and their wealth distributed, by the bus nuns, to the VICTIMS of the valley.

Nuns share their budget message to candidates at Youngstown stop

The article fails to mention the verbal opposition to tax breaks for the wealthy that one of the nuns was very adamant about. Very loving and fair to single out those evil wealthy people right sister?

If it weren't for the wealthy you would be without food pantries, soup lines, and most of the other chartitable things that the nuns praise so highly.

Socialists in nuns clothing. Very fair of them indeed. There has to be a sin in there somewhere. Who is funding them I wonder. Hard to afford a new bus when you are a poor nun. Maybe the evil rich paid for the bus.

Both parties 'messed' up, Ryan tells Youngstown crowd

Whenever I read posts from some of you I can hear the dueling banjoes playing in the background. You are poster children for the remedial arts in Youngstown.

Harry Reid is a mormon as well, and well, Nancy Pelosi certainly fits the bill of moron, so what gives?

Paul Ryan was washing dishes, not serving food. The article makes that clear. I don't think you need a hair net to wash dishes.

Now go home and get your shine box. Spit shine timOthy and spit shine Mike.

UPDATE: Paul Ryan to conduct town hall Saturday at YSU

"A once thriving economy reduced to ashes by the expedient of piling an ever greater welfare burden on a rapidly shrinking population of producers , businesses & entrepreneurs."

Well said. Also, way over the heads of the majority who read and post here. Try more lower-case letters, random commas, and spelling mistakes. That should be a good start.

Many GM workers yearn to go home

One last time, with facts.

- I do need a backiotomy
- I do appreciate the garanimals situation, it explains a lot

- We are NOT out of Iraq, anti-war website just for you:

- Whether GM is alive is purely subjective. One might say GM is dying again since the stock price is down a ridiculous amount since the IPO

- Whether the stock market is up is also subjective. I am quite sure you haven't analyzed the thousands of NYSE and NASDAQ stock prices. You only know about the Dow Industrials which is merely 30 stocks.

- The Cruze was #1 in small car sales in America in September 2012.Correct.

- Unemployment, based on the subjective formula, is down, so I will say correct again.

- Bin Laden is dead, but a body would have been nice. Anyway, correct.

Looks like you are 3 for 6 which is pretty on par for you I'm guessing. 50% seems likes it fits you, mainly in standardized testing.

I do cry when I think about you and the possibility of reproduction.

Get away from Odie, you're scarin' me!

Girard Lakes have a potential that should be explored and developed

Hopefully there are some of those rare "Money Trees" along the lake as well. That is where funding for your grandiose ideas is going to come from.

Robert the Wise, Girard is still paying for the lakes today that have seen absolutely NO RETURN ON INVESTMENT. You want the city to incur more debt to try it again? That's how the whole thing happened in the first place. Remember, 10 years of fiscal emergency? Are you breathing air?

This is why you are not a decision maker in life. Your letter outright frightened me.

Youngstown leads in city council salaries, benefits

The worst run American city in the last half century deserves the highest paid council members for a city that size.

Highest income tax rate in the state, gangs in charge of two sides of town, no real business prospects for the future, no advanced degrees on the council, all of the young talent (almost) can't wait to leave the city, declining population in general, and a history of mass name just a few facts.

Gotta get paid though, we be doin" just fine.

Many GM workers yearn to go home

I applaud your attempts to fit in with society. It cannot be easy, and after some simple research I realize this. I hope things get better for you in the furture.

People, he (or she) suffers from OCD. Please read:
"Compulsions as defined by:
•Repetitive behaviors or mental acts that the person feels driven to perform in response to an obsession, or according to rules that must be applied rigidly.
•The behaviors or mental acts are aimed at preventing or reducing distress or preventing some dreaded event or situation; however, these behaviors or mental acts either are not connected in a realistic way with what they are designed to neutralize or prevent or are clearly excessive.

The obsessions or compulsions cause marked distress, are time consuming (take more than 1 hour a day), or significantly interfere with the person's normal routine, occupational (or academic) functioning, or usual social activities or relationships."

Clearly the remedial nature of his (or her) early childhood was a disease. By continuing to write the same things over and over, he (or she) is able to cope.

Yes, Mike, Bin laden is dead. We are all out of Iraq, except for those still dying there, and GM is alive and well (the stock price is only down 50% since the IPO) and unemployment is down (mainly becasue people have stopped looking all together).

You are right Mike. Keep making yourself and your therapists proud. Use this public forum as a stage to show how far you have come.
