I agree standup4ytown. The front page picture of "It's great to be DOWNTOWN" was despicable and very tasteless.

It is understood that there are tough times right now in the country and in the Mahoning Valley, however, if neighborhoods are clean up and maintained; blight cleaned up, etc. them maybe people would venture out and enjoy themselves...why do city officials and others think all solutions come with shutting things down and moving to another location in the Mahoning Valley. Look at other countries...you visit and see beautiful buildings, culture, etc. but here in the Mahoning Valley everyone is so quick to tear down and rebuild. All that expense and energy could be put into 'revitalizing' what is already beautiful and historic!

Mayor Williams needs to work on keeping the Youngstown Playhouse where it is at instead of worring about moving things closer to the suburbs; securing hockey, etc. Pretty soon there will be no history left in the city to share with generations to come. I think the Youngstown Playhouse is an important part of the city's history.
