LanaceK - the number one reason for vacant, blighted buildings is not enough population to put IN them.
This is not a matter of policy - it's called massive population loss!
Local government cannot be expected to maintain every vacant property when so many have walked away and left the area.
Youngstown went from almost 130,000 people to about 60,000 today. Cannot expect city or county government to take care of vacant properties

The area hit the skids 30 plus years ago....the jobsARE being created but it will still be a while before everyone is seeing the wealth.
The indirect jobs created by the oil and gas industryare just as important as the direct jobs....many ofthem second and third party companies that dobusiness WITH the oil companies. These jobs are sometimes under-counted.
Transportation ndustries are already benefiting withjobs trucking supplies, oil and gas products,frack water and other materials, equipment, supplies, etc.
New distribution hubs, gas processing plants,midstream transport projects that are buildingnew pipelines and joining existing ones, railroads that are either being built, repairedor tied into other existing lines, commercecenters with railyards, etc, etc.

I think that Holiday shopping just gets more andmore rediculous with each passing year.
Name the best "bargain" items in just about ANYretail store on Black Friday and I can probably getjust as good a deal ( or better ) online with E-Bay,Amazon, or a million other online retail sites......

If this man is guilty, HE should be beaten to deathas his punishment for beating a 70 year old man.
Whatever happened to respecting our elders?

I agree - this man get's it. He is practicing what others only preach.
Bless him for showing that the church actually CARES.

OK... so this troubled young man has not only threatened, but beat up on older people, now a young woman, and had how many instances of unstable behaviour towards others?!?!?!?
If he wants to be a bully and beat up on girls, older folks, etc maybe he needs a good, solid A°° KICKING to show him how it feels to be on the RECEIVING and of things, for a change?
In the mean time, he needs to be locked hip in a psychiatric facility until someone can help him get his head together...before he picks on the wrong person and gets his head caved in by someone who is able to defend themselves from his attacks.

So, if people are so sick of "50years of Democratic rule" In Youngstown, why don't they vote Republican?
OHHHH...WAIT.....that would require the Republican party to actually come up with a candidate with a platform and views that people would VOTE FOR.
Are there no republicans in the city of Youngstown? DUHHHHHHH....
