I wonder how many people will die because so many people think this way?

Thank you, Roger, for your ever presence on this venue - I guess you don't work either!...It's been said, "Every Saint has a past and every sinner has a future." Alcoholism and drug addiction are diseases according to the American Medical Association. Judge Durkin's program has saved many lives here in our valley as have other "Drug Courts" throughout the country. If the participants fail tests or don't show up for appointments they go to jail. Drug Court graduates are productive members of society and all of our lives would be affected without them.

Yes! how often does an elected officeholder make a disclosure like this? Or anyone for that matter...Mr. Rudzik & his attorney are demonstrating rigorous honesty not often seen in these pages

But then, according to our Supreme Court, we would be suppressing the freedom of speech of all the people who don't live in that particular jurisdiction.The question I have is why Ryan gets the headlines when both candidates did exactly the same thing?Or maybe it should be why is this news?

Are any laws being broken by the Vindicator trying this case in print? What happened to the "Innocent until proven guilty" aspect of American justice? Again and again we are reminded that McNally & Sciortino are Democrats as if that re-enforces their guilt. (Hey knuckleheads, when you start thinking this way please remember Coingate and well, Richard Nixon.) Again we are reminded of the 83 counts - like if we charge them with enough things maybe one or two might be correct. No matter what happens in this case we get the same article - they are Democrats, charged with 83 counts and the defense attorney cannot be reached or have no comments.Of course the defense attorneys have no comment. Why buy into this circus the newspaper is creating.

I like Walter's approach - Change the way the counties are run... How about this; each of the 88 counties in Ohio have an elected Treasurer, Auditor & Recorder all of whom handle the task of keeping the records needed to collect taxes and pay bills - why can't one elected official oversee these matters? Remember-savings times 88.
Ohio has about twelve million people and 88 counties. California has three times the people and three times the land area in 58 counties...In this day of automobiles and cell phones we probably don't need so many counties.
By the way, there are 1309 townships in the state. Townships are a product of the 18th century and are fiscally obsolete in the 21st century. Townships could be eliminated and their responsibilities managed by a reduced number of efficient county governments. Remember-savings times 1309.

The Eagles should sue them all! The lyrics of the song allude to cocaine addiction and that the hotel is a place of misery. I remember a bar on New Road in Austintown called Hotel California - but not for long.

Blooming flowers aside - baby boomers who managed to make it through the 70s & 80s without leaving the valley are starting to die. Their grandchildren are having babies to replace them but they are having them in places like Charlotte, Columbus, Nashville, and Tampa. What all of these places have is a regional approach to economic development. We have 72 separate jurisdictions vying for their own piece of the pie. Unless we seriously work together (like Youngstown & Girard did with the V&M project) we'll get what we deserve. More decreases in population, more crime, more concentrated poverty, poor schools, disinvestment and lower property values, etc...
