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....

After waiting forever to log in: Just a brief message to all previous posters: Don't take everything reported on TV, Radio or newspapers as the Gospel... News reporters tend to put their own spin on things.....Unfortunate accident in any event......

...".Polivka looks like the moron here".....Redfern claiming it doesn't matter how they do it in other counties and he can't keep track of all of them (only 88 counties in Ohio) doesn't make him sound like a Nuclear Scientist either.....

That is pretty good news.....just think how much it would increase if we had more activities and attractions. The airport problem would certainly go away. Everyone likes to fly out of Youngstown, but not too many flying in for a vacation to the Mahoning Valley....

Regardless of what side of "the fence" you are on (not much difference anyway), things that go on now and went on since that era could make Nixon look like a choir boy......

True we have had a long, nasty winter that doesn't seem to want to go away, but the streets (mostly in the cities) were in bad shape last summer and next to nothing was done . Municipal services have gotten worse in recent years even though city income tax rates are among the highest and road taxes continue to increase, not to mention water and sewer rates, but that is discussion for another day....

Speaking from experience (not guessing), "Stop Sales" happen to every manufacturer from time to time. The fact that it is one particular model (always is), tells us it's usually some small issue....not the first time, nor will it be the last. Easier to rectify the problem now than have to deal with possible recalls down the road.....

Seems like a rather large percentage of BOE members in all school districts in the area leave a lot to be desired. Wonder if it would be better if they went back to school and let the students take "positions" on the board. Couldn't do much worse.....just vote some of these "ins" OUT......
