And leave a Mongoose bicycle and iPod in it as well. There is way more to this story.

SERIOUSLY???? "Younstown"???? Maybe that was the part he didn't agree with. How embarrassing for this city that 8 people signed this and no one caught that huge error. Yes "barbiebutt", that is why the kids can't read or spell.

The Diocese of Youngstown is on a downward spiral, most notably with the schools. Parents don't just pull their children out of the schools with no good reason. Wake up diocese and start doing comprehensive exit interviews on why the parents are pulling their kids out...and then do something about it. You need to find a diocese where the schools are flourishing and use some of their best practices. I would imagine those schools and parishes make Catholic students and families their number one priority, not students with vouchers who are not Catholic nor supporting members of their local Catholic church. You also need to step it up in the curriculum & technology areas. Too many older teachers who simply refuse to change. I had experience with teachers who would not post homework etc on the website because they just didn't want to. Also there were math teachers who were not certified for Algebra 1. You can't have these things going on and expect the schools to even maintain enrollment. We live in a time where we have a surplus of teachers locally so use it to your advantage if you cannot demand a teacher do what is necessary. If changes are not made, Catholic schools will not be in existence in Mahoning county in the next 5-10 years.

Probably not going to have to worry about the school moving. With the whole Lumen Christi fiasco, many catholic school parents are not sending their children to these feeder schools of Mooney. These families are in the suburbs and it is unlikely that once you send you child to a public elementary/jr high school that you would send them to Mooney for high school. Also, open enrollment with the public schools will add to this decline in Catholic School enrollment. Only those families wishing to escape poor performing districts (Y-town) will go to Mooney and the dwindling hard core Mooney lovers. The majority of those that will benefit from tuition assistance will not be from local catholic parishes. As this occurs the question becomes why am I going to pay well over $7000/yr to go to this school with few Catholics when I have a free public school that can educate them as well for free?

Exactly JS...Although no one deserves to be murdered by such a disgusting thug, the full story puts the pieces together. Awful crimes can happen to anyone, but far too often lifestyles of the person or family have created the perfect environment for this type of outcome. The purpose reporting this serves is that being part of this type of lifestyle is dangerous. Even if you are an innocent person, living or hanging out with relatives or friends who lead a risky lifestyle can get you killed.

For all of those folks who want the geese to be relocated or saved in some fashion I suggest you volunteer to be the person to clean up their 3 lb per day per bird feces they leave. We have a small pond in a rural area and when these geese migrate through (say less than 10 birds), the amount of goose poop is astounding! It make a mess out of 1/4 acre of land not to mention what they do to the pond and all the feathers they leave behind. I just don't see where relocation would be a viable issue...unless someone will take them in their house..ha ha.

“Some of these [residents] don’t have the mental capacity to understand what they’re signing,” Hubbard said, “and they’re scared of being evicted, so they just sign.”
This article about another issue implies many are made to sign yet they freely signed a petition in 2014?

Many roads in Springfield Township are horrible. They have been this way for years. I do not live in the township but must pass through daily and it is a disgrace. Had it just been the result of the harsh winter I might be more understanding but as I said it has been years. Springfield Rd is an example. Why pay those taxes when there is no return on it.

I really don't understand all the fuss. Every Family Dollar store I have been in has nothing but junk. Does Family Dollar even carry beer and wine, tobacco products and lottery tickets? Also their idea of deli foods is a couple of packages of bologna. Ross' has to have a much better selection. As for milk & dairy products I would think it much more convenient to stop in a Ross' than go to a Family Dollar.

Wow..... Maybe he should have done his "creative shopping" at Lowes and sold it for cash since they don't seem to pursue or prosecute shoplifters. Then he might have been able to pay for that overpriced sandwich, danish & sweatshirt.
