The discrimination claim against Sam Covelli / Panera is a matter of public record. No need to not name names. Stories about the staffing at Panera have been around a long time, and thanks to reporting by a student newspaper (and not by our local paper in the same town as the Covelli HQ) some employees were able to tell their stories.

Hmm ... maybe the reason Blue Magic is allowed to run downtown - and be named after a brand of heroin - is because it is owned by Tim Adair, a former Mahoning County deputy sheriff.

i've had mixed opinions about the renaissance: most of it is leaps and bounds in the right direction, some of it is a little idealistic and rose-colored glasses-type stuff. if 37 people can afford to live in Realty Tower and the Federal building, then awesome. i could never afford to. myself and many others can only afford to hit up the great new eateries and entertainment every now and then. i wish there were enough well-paying jobs here for college grads so that even a night out or a downtown apartment weren't pipe dreams. but perhaps it will be cyclical ... restaurants open, people come downtown, businesses relocate, jobs are created. i'd really love to stay here. all this stuff is great, but the city needs better jobs, more cops, and better schools to complete a true renaissance. and a Sheetz downtown. RIP Gyspy Lane Sparkle.

Carl, I know for a fact that it isn't 228 Lora, because 228 is MY house. The house the murder took place in is across the street, and would have an odd house number. I saw landlord/convicted drug peddler Joe Pedaline outside the property this morning. This is the second murder on my street from one of his tenants since I've been living there. Maybe now he will pay more attention to who he rents to.

Big Lebowski themed bowling parties = save bowling. bowling alleys in cleveland feature bowling-and-a-movie nights to bring in the younger crowd.

i went to school with andrew and his brothers, this is BS ... and purely a casualty of the overcrowded prisons.

uh, do you remember the white fraternity that was banned from ysu forever when one of the members crushed another guy's skull with a cinderblock? it doesn't matter if they're white or black, booze + dozens of macho guys = fighting
