Ok, someone help me out on this. To build 3 more barns that hold 76 stalls, the price would be 2 million dollars if the article is correct. That is roughly $666,000 per barn or $8,333 per stall. What am I missing here? Does it really cost that much money to build a barn for horses?Imagine the house you can build in this area for $666,000.Is it fair to compare the two? I do not know.

I dont live in Warren but I do feel bad for the young men who worked so hard practicing and preparing for the game. To cancel should not have been an option. Maybe tighter security, moving the game elsewhere, or even not allowing spectators should have been included as options. It has been done before.

OMG. This parent says... "“Needless to say, my answer was ‘no,’” she said. “And as usual, pouting ensued and a little bit of a disagreement between us. This doesn’t stop with one request. It’s truly a litany of requests.”This parent needs to grow up. If she cant say "no" to her kids, I would hate to see them in a store. The kids yelling " I WANT .. I WANT .." Obviously she is one of those parents that havent taught her children what the word NO means.No one is forcing her to take her kids to McDonalds and no one is forcing her to buy a HAPPY MEAL. If she wants to spoil her kids and let them have whatever they want, buy the meals, give the kids the toys and throw out the food.If this is "...a method of circumventing parental control and teaching children unhealthy eating from a early age." Then all the ads of "unhealthy" foods such as candy, chips, cakes, ice cream, SODA, etc. are doing the same thing.

Sounds like there may be some double dipping involved here. Why was there no mention of how much the police chief will receive in retirement monies?

Too light of a sentence. What kind of animal would beat a 2 yr old 47 times with a belt? Let alone, beat the boy in the head.I would really like a follow up story on this one to see what happens to this guy in prison.

I think the Turnpike commission does a great job taking care of the turnpike. There is no way of knowing that privatizing will make it more efficient. It also doesnt mean fewer employees. Two things for sure is steps would be taken to make a PROFIT and it will not be in the shape it is in now when the lease would be up. Take a drive on the Indiana Turnpike!
.....But motorists on the 157-mile Indiana Toll Road have noticed one big difference since it came into private hands: They are paying higher tolls for the first time since 1985.Fees for cash-paying car motorists who drive the whole road nearly doubled recently. Truckers pay even more. Toll rates, which the state partially regulates, are expected to double again within 10 years.READ MORE:http://www.dallasnews.com/sharedconte...

What a great collaboration from GM management and the unions at the Lordstown complex to help the community. I am sure most have donated to the Valley in others ways throughout the year. And thanks to all in the Valley who donate to all the just causes throughout the year.
@ ytowhoh330 .... Jealous? There are a lot of people in the Valley that makes the same or more than the workers at Lordstown.

It is funny that I didnt see any of these people's comment on the article "Trustees ask for details on Kilcawley do-over". .... "Last year, trustees designated $10 million for the renovation of the building that serves as the student center. The money came from a bond issue, borrowed for campus improvements.At a meeting Tuesday of the board’s academic and student-affairs committee, Jack Fahey, interim vice president for student affairs, said the cost of the renovation has risen to $14.5 million.
I guess a 50% increase of $4.5 million for a renovation doesnt cause an outrage because there are no unions involved.

Holy crap! A possible 86 year sentence pleaded down to 13 years?Then, why would you give a convicted felon facing 13 years in prison 3 weeks home electronic monitoring right before he was to start serving his sentence. Did he need a vacation or something?The prosecutors have some explaining to do. It's no wonder crime is so rampant in our community.

The truth will come out sooner or later. Drugs? Money? Gangs? Mistaken indenty? Revenge? Jealousy? Who knows right now.Who is to blame for this death? Well, first and foremost, the shooters is, whom ever that may be. The rest of the blame will be determined later.
On a side note to this story, it says that he lived in the apt. with his girlfriend with his mother being the one on the lease. Isnt this fraud? The master key did not work so police had to enter through the window and found drug paraphernalia. Does this mean the locks were changed? Will an eviction be coming?Could the landlord have been more active in knowing who is living there? Maybe, maybe not. The Westchester complex is probably the largest apt. complex in Austintown. It would be unrealistic for the landlord to go door to door and check to see who is living there. Could measures be put in to prevent this? I would have to say yes, but I am not smart enough to say what it is.
