More crime at the lovely F $ N Market. What ever happened to the police chief wanting to shut this store down due to the amount of crime associated with this store? I made the mistake of stopping there once, just seeing the class of people who stand around the store at all hours of the day made me realize in a hurry that there are certain areas of Youngstown that you just do not go to if you are not a thug drug dealer.

tll3023;I bet if you went and received an education, the 8.50 you make helping the elderly would be significantly higher. Ypou would even be able to qualify for a management position in the future. This is the problem with america's youth today. The sense of entitlement; i bust my butt so i should get rich!! BS!! I have a brother-in-law that does not even have a GED and he quits every job that he gets because they will not pay him at least 10 dollars an hour, not to mention that he fails drug tests at half of them. Without a GED you cannot even get a job at walmart! When will this sense of entitlement end, when people realize that they are not going to receive handouts from B. Hussein Obama< or when all of the jobs that do pay leave country for foreign shores because workers in foreign countries will do it cheaper. All of you complain about GM and the Unions, but look deep into yourselves, how many of you that hate to hear my comments on this matter would happily reap the benefits offered to the GM employees (not that I am saying that they deserve them) if you had a job that the Unions ran the game? Look at the financial mess that America is in right now, shouldn't we be more concerned in figuring out how to save our economy rather than complaining that the y fry cook at McDonalds does not make $45,000 a year.

Grump--I was not stating that i only make 10 dollars an hour with my degrees, i was just making the point that people without an education should not expect to make as much as a CEO. The financial problem that the US is in right now is a direct effect of the greed that americans have. We are the land of opportunity, but not the land of milk and honey. Everyone does not have to have the same things, if that were the case we all need our corporate jets, bently's and live in house servants. People need to understand that keeping up with the jones' is alot easier with an education.

Minimum wage jobs are for those who either have no education, no salable skills, or lack the necessary motivation to want to better themselves. I know a few people who do not have the high school diploma who believe that they should be able to own a home and make 10-20 dollars an hour; pardon my french but that is BS!!! I worked hard for my education, i worked my way through college for both my bachelors and masters degrees, why should someone who dropped out of highschool make the same amount of money that I make with two degrees?What people need to realize is that the days of getting out of high school and finding a great paying manufacturing job are over, the bachelors degree is the new high school diploma today. If these people want to be able to afford the luxurious life, they should get themselves educated. This is one of the biggest problems in this area, the sense that people are entitled to have lots of money for little work. The steel mill have been gone for thirty years people, get your heads out of your butts and get yourself educated or understand that no, you should not own a home, you should not have a family, and you should not have a car. Birth control is available for free at planned parenthood, we have public transportation, and there is plenty of section 8 housing in the city.
The moral of the story is that people make what they deserve, if you want to make more get educated!!!!!!!!

Grump;If free will grants the people the choice to decide if abortion is right for them or not, why then in the liberal state of california can a person be charged with two murders for killing a pregnant woman, should there be a test to determine if her free will believed in abortion before charging the murderer? One should have to look at how the abortion procedures are performed, especially the D & X and D & E procedures are done before one decides if abortion is right or wrong and when life begins at birth or conception. One last point Grump, in asian cultures when a child is born they are already a year old, we are one of the few cultures who does not practice this tradition.

At least the Ohio Turnpike Commission is finally getting in line with the rest of the states throughout the nation and going with e-z pass. Although the rate increase is just another way to screw me out of my money. why not do what PA did. get rid of the majority of the toll workers and only have 4 or 5 toll booths. charge the same way that PA does, Problem solved.

If this is the second time that he was shot, and police believe that this time was in response to a to a fatal shooting that the article insinuates that he was involved in, should the police not arrest him or at least place him in protective custody???

I cannot blame them for canceling. Saturday night, according to police reports, one of the performers had his wallet stolen. Welcome to Youngstown!

With GM now set to layoff 1100 workers, only 300 less than they brought in when they reopened third shift, Obama would have to create tens of thousands of jobs in the Mahoning Valley in order to stave off what could turn into the worst economic times the city of Youngstown has ever seen. Even worse than black monday. When will people learn that increased government spending will not solve the problems facing the economy. small government and allowing people to keep more of what they make would solve the economic mess.

s black; in case you forgot, or did not learn in ytown schools, the president is only elected to a four year term, then he must face reelection. I doubt that Obama will be able to make any great strides with his plans to socialize America. He still has to face a congress that thankfully does not have a super majority.
