Michael....You're right about taking the ticket and just paying it.
This was another bad decision he's made in connection with BPD.

Why was the bond so so much?
It's a misdemeanor offense...just write the ticket, and move on.

“I didn’t want to make this a negative on the guy,” Antal said of Ryan.
Are you serious, Mr. Antal? Why did you call The Washington Post and The Vindicator then? How about the TMZ gossip TV show? I just saw a feed with you answering questions on an upcoming show. Harvey Levine had one of his interns talking to you on the phone.You're getting your 15 mins. of fame, but what is your goal here? Paul Ryan had permission from J. Sherba. Was this a reverse PR stunt, done by you and your staff to "set up" Ryan? Hmm....?

Sounds to me, that Mr. Antal needs to get a grip on who's in charge down there. He seems to think Ryan and anyone else, knows, he's the "go to" person, not Sherba. Antal is complaining about the wrong person here. Of course, Sherba is going to agree with Antal. Sherba, for some reason, thinks she's running the office. That would be a training issue, so why go public with "shoulda, coulda, woulda"...it just shows a weakness in managing employees.

DeLeon's title is only executive director?...Heck, lets make her "Queen of Trumbull and Mahoning Counties!" From what I just read, she has the "inside track" on economic growth for both counties. Plus, DeLeon accomplished all this in 4 mos.,since health problems caused her to miss the first 3 mos. of the year. (To be fair, I don't recall reading what her previous reports stated prior to this) 50 ft. ceilings!...no problem, sign them up, we can throw those buidings up in 3 or 4 mos.!
It's good to finally, hear good, and reliable news for the area.
My gosh, where has Rose Ann DeLeon been all these years?
Uh, wait a minute..what do these statements in the article mean?... "could spur," or "companies interested in having her help them" and "indicators are that companies are starting to look."What kind of "indicator(s)" does DeLeon use to gauge "upticks"? Hmm..I'm just sayin..

"and people wonder about their ability to push chicken fingers, nachos and beer?"
Hell...How hard can that be? Anybody could do that? Just ask any of the food industry experts if they think the "dream team" can pull it off... Here's a for instance; any knucklehead knows if you're halfway successful say, selling cars, you'd be be a perfect fit in the restaurant business...not necessarily true. No, Mr. Franko, we can't and shouldn't, put all our eggs in one basket, based on that logic. Let JAC/SMG grow by doing what they do best..bringing in the talent and the big bucks. It seems to me, messing around with hot dogs, nachos, and beer, would be a distraction and take away energy needed to up the Center's revenue through good bookings.

You'd make a pretty good PR rep for the establishments you've written in your post. Vindy should print your above comment in the main body of the newspaper. I'm not being sarcastic, your testimonial could draw a good mix of people to the businesses you've mentioned.That being said,the issue I have, remains the same.Restaurants/clubs/bars/cafes, cannot support or compliment each other because, they must compete for the same customer demographic. Throw another eatery in the mix and there's going to be a collapse. The area simply cannot support this "revolving door" logic. My research, from reading your posts, confirms that.As far as Butler Art goes, we're talking Downtown...Federal St. and the downtown area, nothing over any of the bridges, is truly "Downtown." .

You're right..I do not go downtown...there's nothing to draw me there...that's the whole point. Lemon Grove is doing a good job, but, look at the track record for the food and beverage businesses, the Lemon Groves', if you will, that have been there and done that. Apparently, 14,000 YSU students weren't enough to keep the past establishments in business.I'd like to see Downtown thrive, and it's not just Youngstown, that has this "dilemma"..it's happened to most cities. Turn Downtown into antique stores, artist galleries..I don't know, but there's a couple ideas. That would draw me and others like me..good citizens,families, people with a little money to buy something they'll value and come back for more. I'm just saying..
