If you really want the truth the Bishops appointment years ago was met with resistance by many area Catholics. Trouble was seen on the horizon. Hate to say "I told you so" but....

They probably got little for their efforts. Don't talk about the death penalty. It's not politically correct. The liberals would be all over it! I still believe in the one bullet theory. No gas , no lethal injection. Just one bullet to the head . No fuss no muss. Common sense.

For the record John Young was in no way responsible for any sexual wrongdoing. He was and is a great man. The only sexual thing going on here is that he got screwed. Poor guy. Gave his life to his faith and a bunch of crooks crushed him. Don't worry John . They 'll answer for it in the next world. They're not smarter than God although they think they're him.

DeLucia and Latessa said students may be feeling some "discomfort." Ya think?? So do the parents and alumni who give tens of thousands of dollars each year to support a school they have no say in. This decision will have definite repercussions. When enrollment is down and the alumni no longer give let's see what happens. Maybe Mooney should offer a class in Youngstown politics and how corrupt the real world really is. Nice job Bishop. You and Gerry DeLucia are nothing but puppets in the side show of Tarpley and Company.

Long gone are the days when u can walk downtown to shop. It wasn't that long ago. So sad to see the city I loved end up in a war zone. We still have many things to be proud of here but the safety factor is gone.

Mr . Young is an outstanding teacher and human being. I say that to about a handful of people. Students, parents and alumni deserve to know the real truth. Will we get it? That remains to be seen.

It's a great school. They hand out millions of dollars of scholarships each year. The problem lies in the leadership. They all need booted out and retain John Young as principal. Those kids deserve better.

I've seen Larry, Curly and Mo do a better job of running a horse race than the select few at Mooney running a school!

Why so secretive ??? Don't the parents deserve an explanation? How about the alumni who donate tens of thousands of dollars each year? I can bet that it's political . The Bishop lets outsiders like Janet Tarpley and others who have no dog in the fight to make his decisions for him. Why don't they clean up East High School and other inner city schools who desperately need it and stay out of the private sector? The majority of Mooney alumni wanted the school moved. So did the board. Now the fallout of dissatisfaction is coming to a head. Alumni are pulling out their money and the Bishop is in a bind. All because his "friends" let him do the thinking for him. Shame on all of them! Stay safe Cardinals. I don't think that fence around the school can be high enough to protect you from the politics within.
