We have one joke after another in Youngstown. Judges on the take. Businessmen bribers. Congressmen incarcerated. Elected officials of ill repute and now an non academic with questionable actions taken at YSU and OSU designated as the best qualified to lead YSU from academic stagnation. And our "leaders" rallying around "da man." Are we area of idiots or is it merely something in the water?

This is a giant step forward for the community and YSU. If anyone out there thinks that Romney/Ryan will bring one job to the Mahoning Valley, they are hallucinating. Romney's record at Bain is very clear.

You talk about a pass the buck situation. We need a committee? We need a policy? We need state government involved? I thought that the Boardman schools already had an anti-harassment policy. You can see what good a written policy is if no one will enforce it. Are they going to wait until someone takes the law into their own hands before acting like has happened across the US? No one needs to be harassed through school. I am well aware of these situations. The comment saying that there are two sides to a story was about as stupid as you can get. Until these school officials get off their duffs and address these issues, the bullying will continue. These atrocities can be cleared up overnight with some action by the paid administration. If this administration in Boardman can't deal with it, I suggest that they get a group in with some guts. And I hope that it is without delay.

Money talks and B S walks. This cry baby makes me want to RAAALLLLFFFF! There is justice for the common man but the aristocracy is on a different planet. I hope that DeMarinis can explain his support of this criminal to someone.

I would also like to see him in an orange prison suit, even if it was tailor-made. He could have that perk. Maybe DeMarinis could lobby for it.

Let JJ get the jail time he so richly deserves. DeMarinis has been a great supporter of the elite and even the Bishop was in the paper mugging with JJ's brother. But any Catholic politician that defends the current law of the land regarding abortion, will be denied the Eucharist. The Roman Catholic Church picks and chooses its battles, foes and allies quite interestingly.

These folks feel they are above the law. Hopefully, Cronin will learn a good lesson as she serves her sentence. The Cafaros should also have a suite in a big house. JJ cried like a little baby as he lied in the Traficant case. The Bishop better be careful of who he hangs around with.

Any news on Dr. Paul Wright, cardiologist of Youngstown who has been involved full time in mission work in Haiti?
