It doesn't seem that local control has served the students of Youngstown schools well in the past. This attempt by concerned leaders in the area has apparently aggrvated the politics in the schools which have thus far been unsuccessful in educating the kids. It seems this is more about being anti-union than unconstitutional. Since the previous system has not worked for many years isn't it about time to try something new to help the kids succeed.Set the politics aside for the sake of the children for once.

Obama is releasing these drug dealers as quick as the judges send them away. He said they are sentenced unfarely for victimless crimes. And besides that they look just like him and made the same mistakes he made as a young man. He is on schedule to release 10,000 by years end.Does this sound crazy to anyone else?

You left out my birthday and I never heard of any of those people you listed. Par for the Vindy.

So speeders with no front plate will not get a ticket and someone going 100 mph in a 50 zone will be fined $150 via mail and no points. Open up the autobahn. This is a greedy way to pocket more money conned up between some out of state company and the city.It would seem we are going in the wrong direction with community policing and giving a face to law enforcement.Why not just post cameras everywhere and send out fines for homicide, burglary and every other crime in the city. Think of the mony to be made and no court costs, jail expense or officers having to get out of the air conditioning to enforce the law.Great idea Youngstown and the indicted mayor.

Give it up. You can't reason with RH. In spite of 4 years of failed programs he still voted for Obama for a second term based on more unfulfilled promises.Some people just follow their nose in spite of the smell.

GM Lordstown has certainly been a good neigbor and has allowed many of our sons and daughters the opportunity to remain in the area with a good paying job. However RH10298 is quite narrow minded and somewhat naive in his understanding of what constitutes a foreign car.With very little effort on his part he would learn that the American cars he speaks of including his GM products consist of only 60% American made parts and that includes Canadian made parts as American made.Several of the foreign made cars he complains about have at least that many American made parts and in some cases as much as 75%.As to the profits being spent locally by those American plants the same can be said for the pay checks earned by workers in the Honda plants in Marysville, OH Toyota plants in Georgetown, KY, and many other foreign plants in cities across the US where these plants provide the same employment opportunities to their sons and daughters as the Lordstown plant provides to ours.Of course not all of the local folks can earn those high union wages paid at Lordstown. Some of us have to work for non union inflated wages at other jobs just as important to the valley. Additionally, a recent news article featured the new GM plants being built in China and Mexico from the very American car profits of which you boast.As you well know I drive an American Pickup truck made in Mexico where I'm sure most of the profits are returned to the US.As a disabled veteran I have earned that right to chose. My wife a retired school teacher drives a Toyota made in Georgetown, Ky of 75% American parts by 100% American workers who take home more in their paycheck than the union workers at unionized car plants.Perhaps some research would educate you.

Typical government double talk. None of the streets identified for repaving are in or near the shopping district. People don' t want to come to Boardman to shop because of the grid lock due to poor traffic flow. One example is traffic exiting I-680 toward the shopping district can't get through the traffic light due to the lack of synchronazation with the light at Tiffany Blvd. Traffic is grid locked at the exit. There are many other traffic light problems throughout the township.There is no way to travel from the east to the west in Boardman without driving through the congested 224 .

What I'm reading here should be a firing offense not a cause for a five day paid vacation. What do you have to do to lose your government job in Campbell?
