There isn't much opportunity looking south to enroll in Poland or Boardman or Canfield or Springfield school districts. All are closed to open enrollment. So if students want to enroll outside Youngstown they need to enroll in Austintown or any Trumbull County school district other than Champion Newton Falls, Southington, or Joseph Badger which are not adjacent to Youngstown. So why do you blame BOE in Youngstown. The state needs to step in and allow open enrollment to all.

I hope Ursuline doesn't have to move. It hasn't moved in Quebec City for over three hundred years. Hopefully it won't have to move in Youngstown.

This is why only the state police are allowed to use vascar or radar to measure vehicle speed in Pennsylvania.

And next to this site restoration you could add a museum of restored Ford Edsels.
Poured concrete dwellings were a failure in the early 20th century. Thomas Edison found this out in Union, NJ. Why do we have to revisit this failure? Let's go forward. Clean up the site and build a modern community center for the future. It's time to leave the past behind us.

Thanks to all who help us stay warm on these cold January days. And thanks for the very economical price of natural gas as compared to the price of heating oil.

This property isn't even visible from Belmont Ave. Much ado about nothing. We just keep throwing money at projects that don't improve our commerce in the township. The former car wash at 20 Goldie Road didn't even get a bid at auction last Thursday. And it is a visible eyesore in need of immediate removal. It has been an eyesore for over 20 years. Let's spend the county's money wisely and quit wasting it on these out-of-the way properties. Plant grass and who is going to mow it? Just let it be.

There are more of these abandoned apartment properties with windows broken at the south end of Greenacres and Northgate roads in Liberty Township. Let's see if the township can get rid of these too.
One already burned to the ground at 3003 Greenacres. These are a real eyesore and are havens for drug users and vagrants. They need to be removed. Obviously the owners take no responsibility. And the Trumbull County Land Bank is not interested in any tax delinquent properties in Liberty Township.

Pulaski-Mercer Road has a 10 ton weight limit. What was a semi-tractor trailer doing on that road? PA state police need to answer this question.

Be sure you understand what is happening. You can't find this change explained on the Mahoning County Communicator webpages. They are still discussing the withdrawal of the income means test in 2007.
Read this Vindicator article carefully and then go to the www.cityofmiddletown.org/docs/news/654 website to get the rest of the story. If you qualify for a homestead exemption now and you haven't applied for it yet you need to apply before Jan 1, 2014 or you will NOT be "grandfathered". Therefore, you will be subject to the new income means test the same as the newly qualified senior citizens turning 65 years old in 2014 who are applying for a homestead exemption in 2014.
You won't find this information on Trumbull County Auditor website either. However, they do tell you the rules are changing come January. At least that is better info than what is presently shown on the Mahoning County Communicator.

Don't drive through Northside at night. Take Gypsy Lane west to 711 and connect to 680 toward Pittsburgh and get off downtown or keep going on to Boardman. Better safe than dead in the Northside. This is a sad state of affairs. But what do you expect in a city that can't get their act together?
