I am sorry people, but they did not have to euthanize those geese, much less publicize what they did like they were doing the community a favor. Boardman recently had an overrun of crows that were bombarding businesses with their feces. I mean it was bad to the point of where we could not walk from our cars in the parking lot to the buildings where we worked. But our managment and facilities teams worked with local game and wildlife services to combat the problem, by setting up decoys and sounds systems that would deter the birds from landing in that particular area. No poison or euthanasia of any kind was needed. The park could have done the same type of thing in the areas of the park that were a problem. Everything could have been done differently and effectively.

Yes- Hats off to Boardman and Canfield police and fire crews and Ohio Edison for their quick response. I was at work in Boardman when the storm hit, but live in Cornersburg, when my neighbor called and said I better get home because my power lines were knocked down and there was some minor damage to my house. By the time I got there, the fire dept. had already secured the area and Ohio Edison was on the scene. Thank you to the people that have to go out in the aftermath of storms to help.

Judge Dellick needs to stop trying to protect her son and own up to the fact that he has problems and needs help. He is 19 now and has to face the music for the crimes he has committed. I hope he is willing to get himself into a program that will help with him with his issues. Otherwise, we will be reading about him in the news again someday.

So the cost of asbestos removal will be way more than building a brand new school with all the new technology and such-really?? I highly doubt it. If the asbestos is such a big issue then why are they allowing students and faculty to attend classes and work there on a daily basis. The Diocese is always begging for money, so where are they going to get the money to move and build a brand new building in the suburbs.

Oh yes Youngstown Council, by all means vote it down, because having a tatoo parlor that employs local artists (because that is what they are) and show cases artwork as a gallery inside the business is much more lower class than a bar, where people can sit and get drunk and then act like a-holes...Just because people have tatoos, does not make them low class. Talk about discriminating. Here's a local small business man trying to bring business to downtown, instead of letting a building sit empty, as most of them now do, and this "high end council" is blocking him. Those buildings will remain empty and people will continue to do business in the suburbs. What a shame.

I'm in my 40's and when I was a kid, WRTA bused us to and from Middle School and Junior high. It was really no big deal. Kids didn't ride on the same buses as the general public.

What people seem to forget is that no religion is perfect, including the Catholic church (and I am Catholic). While I take pride in being Catholic, I do not agree with all of the views of the Catholic church. No one really is without sin of some sort. Who are we to judge other people on their religious beliefs. All these principles are man-made, by man-made sinners.

This is such a tragedy. My thoughts and prayers go out to Ms. Sutera's family, friends and students. The fact that this man was already arrested and charged with stalking and harassment and was roaming free makes no sense.

As someone who is currently fostering puppies for one of the shelters, I am completely taken aback by this act of cruelty. I wish when people torture animals like this and they are caught that we could torture the offenders in the same way they tortured the animals. What a shame. I hope they find the criminals and put them behind bars.

Parents do need to be held responsible for their childs actions. In this case though, it may be a lost cause. The accused has been nothing but a trouble maker for most of his young life. It is shame that this happened. He ought to be ashamed of himself and so should his mother. Discipline at an early age is the key.
