God forbid we are racially incorrect! I heard today that white people can no longer say the word ninja. It's supposed to replace the N word in white culture. Really? Who thought THAT nonsense up? This world has become more than crazy. It will implode upon itself. We are destroying ourselves and each other. We kill over religion. We kill over land. Now young men are killing each other over being "dissed". Idiots. As long as there are liberals who spit on the Constitution (yes, you do it too) this country doen't have too far to go become extinct. Everyone has their "rights" and the rest of us are left with gaping mouths. The only thing left will be the cockroaches.

valleypoboy - maybe you don't like hearing the truth. You'd rather bury your head in the sand and say we are all racists. The facts speak for themselves. The thug mentality is alive and well in Ytown and as long as the thugettes keep spitting out kids that grow up raising themselves on the streets nothing will change. Own it. And by the way if things keep going the way the history of the Youngstown has been then McNally might NEED a replacement. Why don't YOU run poboy? Maybe you have the secret on what to do with all the murders and how to prevent them! Let the rest of us in on it!

It all goes back to women having babies with no fathers or role models to guide them. Mom is doing dope while dad is out making more babies. Same old same old. It's not going to end during our lifetime. It's only going to get worse. Sorry people. Get real here. The days of going to Strouss and McKelveys and a fun day out in Ytown are gone. Who wants to dodge the bullets by some POS who cares less about himself than he does for others. Shame Youngstown was once so great. Now the streets are a battleground. Hope they catch the coward who did this before he kills someone else.

The Rayen school was the number one high school in its day. To say you were a graduate was quite an honor. My great uncle Pete was the captain of the football team exactly 100 years ago. The beautiful pictures I have of that school are not only a tirbute to him but to the great school that once operated in this valley.

If you have a problem with the scholars then that tells me what kind of lack luster education and job you must be disatisfied with. These kids go on to distinguished careers. Do your homework haters. Maybe you didn't do your homework. Green eyed monster rears it's ugly heads!!!

Well I guess people now know how to gain access to victim's apartments. Good job!

Leslie Cochran intended for the top 40 only to compete for these scholarships. This gave students an incentive to do their best while in high school. Now I'm guessing the more "academically challenged" students will get this prestigious award. There are many scholarships out there for incoming students. To take away the scholars program and give it to more students and lessen the award amount takes away the honor. Come on Mr. Cole. You KNOW better! The one best academic program is now being changed to attract more students. Can't you find better ways to increase enrollment.? Why don't you get past scholars to do your thinking for you Mr. Cole? Obviously you need all the help you can get in the thought process!

Come on Dave. There's nothing like the fresh scent of manure in the Canfield air early in the morning.

I know the Vindicator is hurting for money but really? Anyone can accuse someone of anything and the next day it is in print. Mr. Clohessy shame on you. I can't imagine what a sex abuse victim goes through but at the same time the accused needs a fair day in court. You can't unring a bell and if Mr. Formiceeli is found innocent he still has to live with the accusations. Let's let this play out first before we convict him of anything. BTW- I don't know Mr. Formicelli and have never met him. I hope the truth comes out whichever way this plays.

Too bad Judge Evans has to retire at all. He's one of the few respectable people left around here. This guy couldn't be bought or sold. If someone didn't like him there was something wrong with THEM! Good stand up guy.
