The only "growth" in Austintown matching the casino opening is the new Dollar General store built across the street and 300 yards south of the current Dollar General store in the Lucciano's plaza. Meanwhile the former Big Lots plaza across the street sits abandoned for 10 (15?) years.

They need to close, but not for a day. More like a month to fix the place up. The course is in the worst condition I've seen in 30 years. Starts with the drive in via the pothole strewn road. Then the course is a swamp. Even the North, which used to be ok, is filled with standing water. Then there's the ridiculous driving range balls that litter the 10th and 18th holes on the North. The course is an embarrassment yet once it was a jewel.

Local government - they put the "fun" in "dysfunctional".

HonestAbe, Sciortino was grasping for straws and trying out Traficant's style but he just doesn't have Jimbo's flair or cunning to pull it off.

This guy is quite the leader. "I changed my mind personally about gay marriage because of my son. But I won't ask others to treat my son as a human being with the right to marry, because, you know, it could cost me votes with my base."
Like a politician in 1963 saying "I'm against that Bull Connor using fire hoses and dogs on those black people. But I just don't think the federal government ought to be telling Alabama what to do on race relations."

A miracle if this gets 30% of the vote. Why not day care centers? We need a levy for pre schools.

Actually, neither of these two are qualified to be Probate Judge. There are a couple attorneys trying for the appointment that are qualified but not these two.
Hopefully, the Governor's office will select someone with actual significant probate law experience and that person will be able to defeat these two who simply represent competing corrupt machines.

Don't forget to turn the little eyeholes to the front on your pointy KKK hats.

Just pointing out that maybe he should actually win a tournament before criticizing college age kids for losing. Did he also tweet that he was disgusted by his own poor effort these recent Sundays?

And they want to get a levy passed to build a new high school? Tell you what, why don't these "leaders" pay back the school district and see if that might help the levy's cause.
