The correct name of the ethics center is the James Dale Ethics Center.

The Judge was about 40 when first elected. His record as a defense attorney against the local prosecutors during Youngstown's murder epidemic was embarrassing to the local governments. It was as if we needed to get him on our side quickly as all the accused killers were going free. By the end of this term he will be about 69 - so he's spent the highest earning years of his life as a public servant - and if you think he can take up where he left off when he was 40 then you haven't aged yet or don't know what hard work is. Judge Krichbaum is exemplary judge, a credit to our valley and deserves any benefits he is entitled to as well as our utmost respect and gratitude.

These candidates for public office should put the ACTION Banquet on their calendar - (ACTION is the Alliance for Congregational Transformation Influencing Our Neighborhoods) The banquet will be on Thursday, April 23. It will be held this year at St. Michael Church Hall in Canfield. YSU President Jim Tressel will be the featured speaker. ACTION's member congregations are located in Mahoning & Trumbull Counties. (Most of them are in Youngstown.) The people who sit in the pews are the same ones that go to the polls.

Add to the mentioned assets the low cost of housing, Covelli Center & downtown events, Mill Creek Metro-Parks, a great library system, great hospitals and great food....But please don't mention the crime or the weather.

The 2014 Hubbard football team was easily the best team in Ohio in their division. It seemed that both Poland and Hubbard lost their playoff games to Akron St. V's in the 4th quarter. Hubbard starters weren't used to still being in the game in the 4th quarter....perhaps if they had scheduled Mooney or Ursuline they would have been used to the challenge of the entire game.

Fear, your name is urban sprawl.If you think moving will solve the problem, think again. Cowards run away.

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."
