Nothing says Catholic like cash. The exorbitant yearly tuition at a private school helps guarantee your kid won't be shot or stabbed in the hallway. The kids most at risk of early, violent death can't afford such luxury. Apparently, a church recently outed by its leader for its pursuit of profit, can't afford to help them.

Ytownparent's idea would work only until the idiots realized they could wear the brim of their ball caps straight forward instead of sideways or pointing as backward as their social skills.

Louie is a piker compared to the gold standard of tax cheats, Charley Rangel, former Ways and Means Committee Chair. Has he ever paid the back taxes on the millions in income from his Carribean rental properties? Remember he lost that chairmanship and got a public slap on the wrist for that dodge, yet he is still in Congress taking up space and every freebie he can score for himself. Bottom line - most politicians are slime and the higher they rise the slimier they get. In this country, we have no one to blame but ourselves. It's time the "ruling class" is reined in by the electorate.

Watch for the civil suit against the school district, otherwise known as the payoff. He was wrong. He broke the law and now he pays. And now the 22 year old "mother" finds herself in need of a means of support. The liability insurer for the district ought to be worth a couple million.

I think that for their own safety and for the value of their good work to continue, these dedicated public servants should remain as far from the limelight as possible. I would hope that going unrecognized would enable them to be more effective, more ruthless, more active at all hours than the scum thugs remaining to be hosed from our streets. My thanks to all of you stand up men and women willing to do the work, to take the risks to lock up the animals.

What's yellow, has three axles and sleeps four? A City of Youngstown maintenance truck. Wake up Teamsters. When the political hacks running down Youngstown accept the facts disclosed by an independent commission, it means they believe they have the weight of public opinion on their side. Your best bet is to negotiate or prove them wrong. I don't think you have much of a chance of the latter.

When their victim draws his last respirator assisted breath, that's when this trash should be returned to the street.

Mr Schmitz should ask himself why it's been fifty years since the last track was built rather than how many stables, based on stable requirements set by previous political hacks, are at the new track. The answer is likely that track operators run on a budget while commission hacks operate on limitless taxes. This commission seems as antiquated as the stable standards it holds sacred.

Johnny should get his temper and his ego under control before some law abiding citizen helps him find his way to being a punk in prison.

Given that anything free is usually worth every cent you pay for it, I think this is a great idea.I fiddled away my first year at YSU playing cards, cutting classes and drinking cheap beer. Four years as a draftee in the Vietnam-era Navy helped me place greater value on higher education.
