Campbell had an excellent mayor in John Dill, but council has had their own agenda for years. I do know that Mr. Dill worked more hours as mayor than any previous mayor in Cambell, and he was and is one of the most upstanding and honest men you will ever meet in your life. Let's hope Mr. Krinos can avoid causing the city any further embarassment by cleaning up this mess with the caterer.

There is no vision on the part of our elected officials, there are no creative ideas being formulated. There is a severe lack of effort being put forth by anyone in this valley that might create employment. Why not start with a radical idea like creating a union free zone for new businesses for a minimum of the first ten years. Then GIVE land away to companies that will commit to building a facility, training and employing workers with a wage of $12 an hour and $4 an hour towards health care. Next look at all businesses nationwide that are old line manufacturers with top heavy union payroll burdens, target those companies for relocation to the valley. And reduce the payroll tax to 1% for all newly created jobs in the city, also give existing employees the same break if their company hires new employees on a one for one basis.We have water, rail access, highways, and an untapped labor force that needs to gain self respect through employment. Why are those attributes not being marked nationwide? Get it started Jay Williams and all you other political want to be's.

Perhaps the city could use the former site of Sexton Street School as it is vacant land now. Just don't start planning some edifice that runs way over budget and has far too many "extras" incorporated in the construction. The city is shrinking and the funds are limited at best. Think function over form, Please!

My daughter walked into a well known dealer on Market Street in Boardman prepared to purchase in cash a new car. The salesman greeter her with "Hi Sweetie" She informed him just how ignorant she thought him to be and walked right out of the store. She drove to Hubbard and closed the deal that same day. It is time the car industry solved that condescending "salesman" persona once and forever.

At least the company is trying to place the workers elsewhere if possible.

Walmart security apprehended the suspect after a low speed chase lasting 30 minutes. The officer said, " I couldn't stop laughing long enough to make the arrest." The suspect was irritated that his hospital gown kept coming untied thereby exposing his "short comings." He was quoted as saying,"I could have gone faster but my winkie was getting too cold."

I'm wondering what will become of the gift certificates that we purchased for family members just before the holidays? They had to know something was about to happen to the business, if so why did they continue to sell gift certificates within a week of the closing? If they won't refund the money, then there should be action taken by the prosecuter for fraudulent business practices. This is one time hiding behind the cloak of bankruptcy should not be condoned, it is theft no matter how you look at it.

Why is this blog up for weeks on end with no activity?

Sorry, there would be no room here for Barack, unless that other monumental ego (Jimbo) leaves town during the visit. Try as we may, there is only so much BS that we can absorb at one time.
