I cried when I saw that the beautiful old barn was gone - why do people think its progress when unspoiled land is torn apart to build condos-disgusting.

"Indian gambling casinos aren’t permitted in the Mahoning Valley under state or federal law." Don't the county commissioners have better things to do than listen this crackpot felon's schemes - they shouldn't even have allowed him to speak at the meeting. The same people on this board who cheer on the pork this felon brought to Youngstown are the same ones who criticize Tim Ryan for doing the same thing.

Because that is our legacy - someone who beats people up for a living and a delusional criminal ex-congressman who won't go away.

Does the Vindicator cover all ex-con news confererences or just this idiot who refuses to go away? Why is he having a press conference and why should we care? What sort of power does he have that anyone should be listening to him? That must be why there are so many criminals in politics here - your pretty much guaranteed as much free press as the Vindicator will print - and obviously they will print everything.

Why were these people allowed to do this when the elderly woman from a Cleveland suburb was charged with animal cruelty for hitting a deer with a shovel that was in her own yard? The people from the department of natural resources said the deer would have wandered away on its own - they know this was happening and they are doing nothing about it?

I'm sure this is wonderful holiday fun, but maybe he should part with some of his profits and actually pay the teenagers who are the "monsters". My understanding is that he only pays them for transportation, which amounts to about $180.00 for the whole month.

No one called because no one cares-he's a washed up criminal -please please go away and take your tarnished image with you.

I hope the Girard City Council has half a brain to do the right thing - its obvious their mayor is clueless.

Thank god they came to their senses - he's an embarassment to the majority of people who live here - we don't need or want that kind of publicity. Courage? What a joke - he was a crook and a liar.

Go away UFCW - Employees at the union Giant Eagle across the street don't make much more than minimum wage to start and they pay union dues. This picketing has nothing to do with better wages or working conditions its about membership numbers and collecting union dues. And remember one of Mark Dann's sleezy sidekicks was a bigtime UFCW official-not surprising.
