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?

There is something not being disclosed here. We need more transparency in municipal government. Is there something else that they don't want us to know? There is more here than is readily visible. We need to follow the money and find out who is getting paid. They call it the "13th check" in Detroit. Do we have the same problem here and no one wants it known? David Skolnick dig deeper.

I just wished they would drill the wells at Stambaugh Golf Course. Then maybe the drilling company would repave Fifth Avenue south. The City hasn't been able to get anyone to do it yet. Liberty Township got their section of Fifth Avenue paved last year. State paid for most of it. What is Youngstown doing? Not much!

Where is the Ponzi scheme? A Ponzi scheme is a fraudulent investment operation that pays returns to its investors from their own money or the money paid by subsequent investors, rather than from profit earned by the individual or organization running the operation.
We should be thankful we aren't paying $12 per MMBtu for natural gas like the Germans do. WE aren't paying $8 per gallon for gasoline. We aren't paying 34 cents a kWh for electricity.
Let's be thankful for what we do have and quit this nonsense of trying to ban good ideas. Thank you Jimmy Carter for giving us the Department of Energy and supporting directional drilling.

The American Academy of Environmental Medicine has the mission TO RAISE MONEY TO CONDUCT RESEARCH TO FIND MEDICAL CURES FOR ILLNESSES.There are no expert Reviews of this non profit on Guidestar website. Their annual revenue is just slightly over $90,000 according to Guidestar. This non-profit organization seems to be not well supported and may be a single sole proprietor which has registered with IRS as a non-profit. It is opposed to any wireless communications. This includes WiFi as well as cell phones and wireless meters. Give me a break! Jodi don't be a sucker to this non science.

This is another tax delinquent property. $181,000 property tax due. I guess this will cost the taxpayer in lost tax revenue.
There are other tax delinquent abandoned properties that are more of an eyesore. 20 Goldie Road, a car wash tunnel, has been abandoned for 20 years and should be removed. Next to it is the Liberty Automotive on Belmont Avenue , which closed over a year ago and moved to Warren. This is another tax delinquent property. Different owner. Over $80,000 tax delinquent.
Belmont Avenue needs cleaning up first. Then the township should worry about Naylor Lloyd Road abandoned properties.

There is quite a lot of tax delinquency that needs to be decreased or eliminated. Trying to pass another levy is going to be difficult when folks who pay their taxes in full each year see others who are $10,000 or $40,000 or $80,000 or $180,000 in arrears. I guess the county treasurer is trying to collect these overdue taxes but only a few tax delinquents are getting themselves out of this problem.
The BOT should cut spending more and make it clear that this is the result of uncollected tax revenue. Put the blame where it belongs. Liberty Township is not a lending institution. If these folks need a loan to pay taxes then go see a bank or other lending institution. There are plenty of these along Belmont Avenue and some of them are tenants of tax delinquent properties.

This story seems incorrect. The woman claimed she was swimming????? Is this accurate? Or did she claim she was NOT swimming. Only her children were swimming and she was there as a parent looking out for their safety. I think there is a legal term for this. In Latin it is "Parentis in Locus". I think the city and police need to recheck her intent and if that was her purpose, then criminal trespass is not correct. Every parent has the right to safeguard his or her child.
