For the amount of money they are putting into the former hospital they better move the Health Department, Building Department and Planning Commission down there as well - plenty of room - but I guess it's too expensive to convert hospital.rooms into offices. Maybe the Vindicator could try to figure out how much of our taxes have been spent to purchase and renovate the hospital and compare that to what would have been spent to stay put. When it comes to being "stupid" and electing the wrong people - we are free to move and find a place where they are "smart" and elect quality people....good luck with that.

The case should probably be tried in court and not in the print media.

Here's a solution: Probably most of the sub-standard rental units in Boardman are in the section that is served by the Youngstown Water Dept. Just have Youngstown annex that part of the township and those units will fall under the City's landlord registration program.

Why is nobody saying anything about the fact that Boardman Township will have more precinct committeepersons to make party decisions than Youngstown -which still has way more people. I say cut as many precincts as needed but keep the one-person-one-vote theory intact. Why isn't Youngstown's Mayor and City Council standing up against this.I wonder why Youngstown is always so nice when dealing with the Townships. Like the former Mayor Sammarone always says "Nice guys finish last."

The biggest difference in the Michigan teams of the last 13 or so years has been the absence of blue chip recruits from Ohio. After Tressel got to OSU Michigan began to loose the recruiting wars in Cleveland and Cincinnati. (They still managed to land a few Maurice Claret haters from Trumbull County but the Elvis Grbacs and Des Howards were going to OSU.) Check the Michigan roster from 2003 and see how many players hailed from Ohio (It's even worse when you look at the starting line-ups) and compare that with this year's roster.

Although my recollections of the 70's rock and roll are sketchy at best, the song Hotel California by the Eagles was a nightmarish allegory about cocaine addiction or at least hedonism and the excesses of American culture. If you go just remember "You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave."

Let's see if I understand, a guy comes from Sharon and "gives a ride" to a 20 year old he picked up on Oak Hill. Something he has done before. But this time the car gets stolen when the Sharon guy goes in to pay for some gas. The police better be asking this guy why he came all the way to the south side to give somebody a ride and why he doesn't "give rides" to people in Pennsylvania, where he lives.

It sure seems like we are trying this case in the Vindicator....

If trash goes in and nothing comes out then it's not a recycling center it's a landfill.

So, they have $150k pay a company from California but they still have a temporary banner instead of a real sign on their building downtown.
