Walter, good thing you're not making cracks like that against the black community, otherwise you would be starting WW3 in the Valley. Italians, as always ignore the insults and consider the source.....that aside, time was when these Government workers at all levels were public servants....now they are double dippers with Mercedes pensions and health care and the public has become servants to them....

If you have to go to a Jewish Deli for corned beef on St. Patrick's day, you might be from Youngstown, Ohio.....if the annual St. Patrick's day parade is NEVER on St. Patrick's day, you might be from Youngstown, Ohio.......

It wouldn't make any difference, he used that as an excuse to dump her even though she works at the pleasure of her superior UNLESS she is under union contract. The new auditor doesn't need any reason and will terminate everyone he can and then put in his own people....

Girard Street dept: Three rednecks, two small, rusted out pick--up trucks, one shovel and nobody who has a clue of how to run a snow plow......

The Hagans were hoping for a "triple-dip" on top of a double-dip......they should have figured someone would notice the violation. I believe her when she said it's not about money, but of course, I also believe that dairy cattle can fly South during the winter months....

I have no idea what they are thinking, (maybe why they are rich and I am not), but I wish them success.....

Maybe next year they could jack it up to 10 bucks to get through the gate and see a few more thousand folks quit coming. We never hear much about how much these counties make with these crazy charges (not to mention how much they rake in from the vendors) or where it actually goes. Too much thievery these days...they take the fun out of anything and everything.....

There are a few reasons why it is "dying". One is because that generation is dying. The younger generations are a) making more money, b) are better at math and have a better knowledge of the mechanics of gambling, c) are physically able to do other things to entertain themselves and their families.....

The lady who sold that property to Moon Park was the winner in that deal. Why people (anyone) think property close to a casino or racetrack becomes super valuable overnight is amazing. Folks who go to the track will spend all of their money AT that facility and couldn't care less about a Dollar Store or McDonalds across the street. Take a look at Newell, WVA and see if you can find any progress there since Mountaineer casino was built .

...."safe passage to school"...great idea and great to get grants for funding. Too bad some of the other city and/or township leaders aren't smart enough to look into it for their schools....
