CeOSU, Wow! Finally some brains that drained looking to return. Finally, even just common sense speaking up against the ignorant of the Valley. Young man, you are right on, and the Hope for Ohio. As a young man once coming out of engineering training, I too was pumped about my generation's future. I got my start with Reagan's rearming of America and advancement in nuclear shipbuilding.Yes, your future is right IN YOUR HOMETOWN. Youngstown and eastern Ohio is the only shale wet gas field in the world today. Unlike the Bakken, Eagleford, or Marcellus, your birthright zone is wet gas, and you being a CE student understand this.
Currently for your generation the energy company's are building VAST infrastructures in this zone, cryogenics plants, fractionators and pipelines to harvest this Ohio wealth.
What you and the young brains of Ohio must do, is help us educate the masses here in eastern ohio. As you can read on the blogs here, The brain drain in your hometown, has left us with low information people, who are being exploited to fight energy production. Low information people, that are being used by the very same countries that had America addicted to their crude for decades. Fracking, is state-of-the-art and American ingenuity unmatched for now, embrace it, fight for it, or America's economic power continues the spiral down.

Boardman, can Frack, Canfield can Frack, Poland can Frack, Liberty can Frack, everyone can Frack, CASH in and have PASSIVE INCOME for decades. NO, not Youngstown if the Professors of Youngstown State University have their way. They and their little ilk only want the POOREST of the POOR, the poor Blacks, the poor Latinos, the poor Whites only who live in Youngstown will have THEIR MINERAL RIGHTS taken away from them. The POOR of Youngstown for a third time are having THEIR rights on the line by a few radicals.
VOTE NO AND KEEP YOUR MINERAL RIGHTS FOR YOURSELVES!

"My Man Todd." "You go bro!"
I was tuned in last night reading the round by round of the Paquiao fight and was waiting for the boredom to end and finally saw after a shower that Paquiao won dy a lukewarm decision.
Now here comes "rope-a-dope" FranKo, finally in the last few weeks fed up with the non leaders of the Valley, or he was pushed out of "Fort Vindy"; to get out there and start swinging! Earning his keep.
Kid Franco, you D Man now, the fact that the "Bonester" is calling on you, he likes that you have awaken maybe a sleeping Giant, the Vindy.
So keep on with the upper cust, the left hooks and bring the Vindy back whether you call it social media of a blog site, the ghost of the Vindy past, will give you the energy you need......if you are the one true one.

I'm for abandoning all fracking, returning to importing oil from the Middleeast continuing their lifestyle of royalty. Also reverting back to buring forest for our winter hear, becoming Amish and living off the grid like the examples of the Antifrackers.

So which is it Vindy, "less than stellar, " in NE Utica or $350 Million cryogenics plant in New Middletown and the Hickory bend trunk pipeline being layed all the way to northern Mercer county?Anyone with a little sense knows that you don't build processing and pipelines if the results from the NE wells are less than steller. Could it be that the energy companies want the landowners to believe the Vindy in order to lease the remaining acreage CHEAP? No, the southern Utica is only active because the infrastructure was there first, the "midstream" phase. This is what they are building up north now.

This Mayoral leadership is definitely on the right path now.
Poland Village Streetscapes built the Peterson Park with all the stonework using WEP workers eight years ago. The pavilion in the Poland forest were renovated with WEP workers about the same time. The outdoor movies in Poland is assisted during the summers with WEP workers.When Mayor Williams admin. was offered WEP workers, the feedback was NO, because it was similar to enslavement. How many times has it been shouted that the thousands receiving assistance if able bodied can be an Army of labor for the community.

Is the statement: "If we do not put their salary inline with other communities, they will relocate." Or is this a common excuse by our politicians?
My bet is that there are qualified people in line physically who will take the job at a local competitive rate. In other words, another qualified individual will do the job for less. Actually it is proven in Pete's own article that when Moore retired someone moved right into the slot for less. And there were other examples.
