Talk about being pessimistic ... nothing like creating scenarios where the public is going to be forced to carry the cross for someone else's stupidity without even first knowing if the man has insurance or means to pay for his bills.

Why was this man released? He RAPED and MURDERED someone. Now this low life, scumbag tried to commit an IDENTICAL CRIME 2 years after release !
This baboon needs to be put down if you catch my drift. Trying to help this low life is like trying to rehabilitate a pit bull to play with children who was previously utilized in dog fighting; it is just NOT going to happen!

Tragedy all around. This man's awful decision to simply run a red light has forever changed many lives, including his own life indefinitely.

So sad. Thank you Jesus for taking that poor child out of his misery.
I cannot imagine living a life that he had to live. I feel so ungrateful for not thanking God every day for the life I have been blessed with. This poor child lived in fear every day of going home. Can you imagine being afraid to go home to your mother and 'dad' for fear that they would literally torture you for their own pleasure?? I can't even begin to imagine the emotional pain this poor child suffered knowing his own mother would sit by and let this evil man do these terrible, atrocious things to him!
And the scariest thing of all: Imagine what was done to this child that the authorities haven't found out about. I am sure this child is afraid and embarrassed to reveal all the horrific details of some events and feels ashamed so he keeps them bottled up. I just hope that his younger brothers can forgive and forget, otherwise they will remain imprisoned with these terrible memories and resentments toward this man.

Face it. Ice skating, hockey, etc. just isn't popular around here. Bad business venture for this area. Probably wouldn't do bad in the suburbs of a more densely populated city, but not so much around here.
Mr. Zoldan has funded that Ice Zone operation since day 1 and I applaud him for that. He tried to bring a good thing to the Mahoning County and it has sapped all the life out of him that he is going to let it. He is tired and has thrown in the towel and I cannot say I blame him one bit.
But before people start condemning him, how about you put yourself in his position and ask yourself if you would have poured $1,000,000+ of your own money into a sinking business, in the hopes that you incite a mircale to happen and the public miraculously begins buying tickets again.

An extra 20 miles per gallon isn't worth the extra 50 cents lee? That equals out to 50 cents/gallon with the Malibu I am driving since regular is about $3.75 now and i get about 20, give or take a couple. That would mean since the Diesel Cruze gets, what, 42 miles per gallon? I would only be paying 50 cents for 22 miles more a gallon ... Sounds like a no brainer to me.Hey, where do you work by the way? ...
You and bmanresident should hang out. At least then you would have someone to agree with your negativity and pessimistic views.

Actually there are 4 stories, and it would appear the paper is so terribly bad that you are still reading it.

Yes, this poor man has been "tortured" for OH SO MANY YEARS! OHHH THE AGONY !
Was he also "TORTURED" on the streets into committing a "litany" of crimes which got him sentenced to 54 years in prison? He is 29 years old, not 9, he needs to understand if he does not act his age, he will be swiftly dealt with. At his age he should know the difference between right and wrong, but apparently all this time he has spent in prison has been in vain. Just like anyone in life, if you show the correction officers respect, they will show you respect.
What's happening at the penitentiary is roughly only 5% continue to rehabilitate themselves while incarcerated. 85% are back in prison within 1 year, keeping this animal in there simply prevents him from having an emotional roller coaster ride of getting released and returning to prison within 1 week for going over the counter when the McDonald's employee mouths off to him.
People like this need to stay locked up; for some people rehabilitation is simply not feasible.

This poor child is doomed from the very start. He does not stand a chance for having a decent, normal life and I am sure will soon be permanently marked with ink he cannot erase all over his body and wlil grow to regret them and depise his parents for taking him down a path of unemployment and life as a joke.
I cannot take people seriously who have tattoos everywhere. I understand maybe getting 1 or 2 or maybe even a sleeve above the bicep where it is concealed a majority of the time, but beyond that and they are obviously trying to compensate for something they are not. Sure, it's "your skin", but it is no longer 'unique', and soon within 10-15 years, NOT having a tattoo will be considered 'different' and will make you a tough guy.
There once was a point when only people who were tough and rebels would get tattoos; now you go into any lower income area, dive bar, or fast food restaurant and you see your share of misguided people with their EX-girlfriend's name on their necks, and 'skulls and demons' on their arms ...
