The police chief needs to ask hospital administrators what happened when they let ministers into the hospitals to "counsel" the needy. They used the time to get money from the needy. Now ministers must sign papers agreeing to numerous rules to keep them from just promoting their churches to make money. The chief had better do the same before he lets "ministers" ride around promoting their churches. Next councelling centers will want to ride around with the cops. Then hospitals and drug clinics.

Why not Trafficant for YSU president? He's another Youngstown big name who knows how to work around the laws to his financial advantage. Oh. He isn't part of the plan to move YSU away from academic excellence back to athletic excellence. Back to paying for athletes to go to YSU and letting them pass classes without even attending them. That's what we want YSU to be known for.

Guess we are about to get another cluster f**k by foreign owned energy companies. Someone needs to follow the money and expose every State representative that votes for this destruction of our environment.

Looks like the crooks that have kept Youngstown down are going after YSU. Forget academic excellence. Lets put a crooked jock in charge of YSU. Perhaps bags of money could bring better students to YSU just like it did for athletics at OSU. Oh I forgot. Tressel left in shame from OSU. What's a little shame for YSU. Let it join the shame the crooks have brought on Youngstown for years. It has worked so well for Youngstown.

I wonder why the prosperous communities around Youngstown never have to pay companies to move into them? Boardman, Austintown, and Poland are constantly getting new businesses without getting taxpayer welfare. How many never pay back the loans? And all we need is another apartment complex for those on welfare to assure that downtown remains a terrible place to visit.

since when does the comments of a sleasy opponent in a campaign make headline news? He could say anything and you would print a big article? ?What's up?

Strange that a mob owned trash hauler should suddenly get the contract when the new administration takes over. Should we expect a reduction in service?

It is the Mahoning County political machine that is trying to get rid of Belinky and replace him with one of their own. Isn't is a coincidence that this did not happen until days after the deadline to run for his job. Only other on on the ballot is part of the machine. Now the dirt starts being thrown.

Lupo intentionally dumped poisons into the drinking water of over a million people. Why is he not being tried for attempted murder. He would be tried for murder in most other countries. Why is death by businessmen not considered much of a crime in the US?

This mess has cost the taxpayers millions of dollars and returned a tiny fraction of that to a handful of downtown businesses. A terrible investment. Those who saddled the taxpayers with this burden should be investigated and reported on.
