Unvaccinated U.S. travelers/foreign visitors bring measles to America

Photoman beat me to the Punch. When I read this story and, specifically, that much of the measles seem to coming out of Disneyland in California- subjected to a long-time invasion from Mexico- thanks to our Dear President, I had exactly the same thought: " the situation on our southern border."

Another good reason to Secure our Southern Border. Also, parents who refuse to have their children vaccinated (and this includes the God-fearing Amish and Jehovah's) should be prosecuted for Child Abuse- and given the option of either complying with the law or surrendering their children to foster care.

Also, in the case of the Amish, especially, they should be informed that families with unvaccinated children would be confined to their farms. Their Buggies would not be allowed to travel on the public highways and they would be blocked from entry into public places. Does that sound severe? I don't think so. They have no right to endanger the health of other people's children.

What's your favorite part about living here?

Ok, Rog. I'm with you on both counts- but, every now and then, you do like to read something positive about this area- as Todd did, to his credit, in his two columns (almost makes me forgive him his hair cut!).

Everything listed in those two columns- positives about the Y-town Area- is TRUE and just because the Negatives exist (and I talk about them abundantly in my comments) doesn't negate the good things- and the danger is that if we don't stop to celebrate the positive, were going to be overwhelmed and depressed by Negative News. And there's far, far more good in the Mahoning Valley- it's People, it's way of Life- and, maybe, most importantly it's- Affordable Cost of Living than there are Negatives. It's all relative- even the Weather. You say the Weather around here Sucks- especially now. Sure, I know it does, but how'd you like to be living in Buffalo? Everything is Relative.

Sciortino should be very afraid

ambulance: "I think the county should go after Sciortino civilly." I never heard of that before- is it legal? Wouldn't that be punishing his family for his actions while in office? The guy lost his job and was disgraced (insofar as that's possible in Mahoning County for corrupt activity) and was assaulted multiple times in print by Bertram DeSouza: what more do you want- that he be "tarred and feathered" and sued into poverty? And, besides, the real culprits here are not the individual crooked politicians but the dumb voters for continuing to make the same mistake over and over again: giving complete power to one organization- currently headed, ironically, by the guy you want to put in charge of the lawsuit against Sciortino: David Betras! Of all people. Wouldn't that be a conflict of interest- Betras being Chief Engineer and Stair Stepper of the County Political Machine that birthed Sciortino?

You're comment has to be a spoof. If I accepted it seriously I would start to feel seriously sorry for "the Little Guy"- Michael Sciortino- that you want to destroy. If we followed your recipe- "kick em out", then "sue em into the Poorhouse"! How many people would line up to serve in Public Office? Not too many. Look at Bill Clinton- "the emotional pain, suffering, and monetary cost incurred (by the country) as a result..." of the Old Cockhound's seduction of a young girl- one of his White House "interns"- into supplying him H--d under the Oval Office desk: How much would that be worth in a Damage Settlement to the American Taxpayer's? The Clinton's would be living on Welfare.

P.S. I know yours was not a serious comment, Ambulance- it read like a "put on". But I like the idea and had a lot of fun with it Thank you!

Sciortino should be very afraid

I don't know what it is about the Local Democrats, as an organization, that prevents them climbing very far- for as long as I can remember there's been that "... putrid Democratic stench that has emanated from the growing list of public officials who have polluted government." in Bertram's phrase. And it never seems to change...does it? The faces may be different, but the "stench" of corruption is always the same. Why is that?

Apart from the fact the local Democrats have no rivals for power- Meacham, hopefully the start of a trend: an honest Republican with a CPA degree running the Mahoning County Auditors Office- Think of That!- Lord, the Age of Miracles is Still with Us!- it goes back to the nature of the Machine itself: it doesn't have very far to go in an upward direction- by design. The local Political Machine reminds me strongly of a Stair Stepper Machine- the kind you see at the Y. It never rises very far and it always goes back to the floor it started from- By Design.

Ok, I looked at it again- it's just a smiley face sideways. Smiling about what? Maybe that I managed to get myself in "deep do doo" by making a comment that I never should have made- and which, I'm happy to say, the Vindicator has removed- for which I thank them!

Re: DontBan... I don't get the "Imao" reference with the little arrow pointing up. Does that mean "In My Accurate Opinion" which it is- or is the Commentator trying to make a statement about my Comment that's clearly not true. Could you clarify for me what it is you're trying to say? I'd like to know if I'm being complemented or Cut-down. Also, is there any hidden meaning in "(-:"? Or is that just a "typo"- missed key strokes of the kind I sometimes make after taking my Heart Medicine? (Or maybe you have a cat- as I do- that likes to wander around on your desk and keyboard? In fact, I'm going to use that the next time I make a comment that I clearly wish I hadn't made- I'll say the Cat Wrote It!)

Dellick gets probation

The poor kid should be cut some slack for being Theresa Dellicks son- that alone is a "mitigating factor" of Mt. Everest Proportions...

I just want to go on record that I've requested the Vindicator Web Master to remove my comment (no:21) because- after reading my statements the next day- I concluded they were inappropriate and unnecessarily sarcastic toward Mr. Covelli. I apologize to Mr. Covelli for making those remarks and the only explanation for them that I can make is that I posted that comment late in the day- just before going to bed- and had taken an excessive amount of my heart medicine (Burgundy Wine). When I read them next day- over Coffee- I was horrified and immediately contacted the Vindicator and requested their removal. I explained that from now my policy in making late evening or early morning comments is to write everything out in Word, let them rest overnight and next morning- upon sober reflection- decide whether to send them or not.

Regarding the issue I raised in my post- Hiring Practices of Covelli Enterprises- I did some fact checking the next day and followed the link in comment no: 13 and found that that particular case had been settled and that was the only reference to alleged discrimination on the part of Panera that I was able to find. I'm certainly not an expert in these matters: Covelli Enterprises has almost 35,000 employees in over 260 stores in 5 states. I like their stores but my personal experience is mostly confined to Austintown and Boardman where I go frequently (come to think of it in Boardman I have seen a few male workers- so I had that wrong, too), and I've been a few times to the other stores I listed. So, the broad sweeping way I spoke about a business organization as large as Covelli's (with my limited experience and knowledge) was wrong of me- and I apologize for making those remarks.

Finally, on the Panera Bread Website, where I got the statistics I've just listed, was also a listing of some of the charitable contributions made by Covelli Enterprises and it's pretty impressive- including their sponsorship of Covelli Center. They are a good Corporate Citizen in Every Sense of the Word. Again, I apologize for the tone and content of my ill-considered post....

Billdog, I didn't say "six years ago", I said in the sixties- that's when Welfare Policies that discouraged family formation kicked in and the habit of two people living together and having children started to gain momentum- and it isn't just African-Americans, Whites as well- it just made better economic sense to have children out of marriage and claim government support- then to tie the knot and take a chance- at an economic dis-advantage. People aren't stupid- they move in the direction of greatest advantage to them- traditional morality notwithstanding. I blame people like Hilary Clinton for the decline of this country- and, specifically, the assault on Marriage: Remember what she said: "It takes a Village (read Big Government) to Raise a Child". Ironically, those kinds of decisions- made by well meaning Liberal-Progressives part of the "War on Poverty"- did more to perpetuate poverty- especially among Blacks- than anything else I can think of.
