Sorry, no featured properties currently.
This will be viewed as discriminatory against those that don't have valid driver's licenses. It is said that about 70% of the drivers living in the city of Youngstown don't have a valid driver's license. Thus, they will use an ID that is not able to be swiped and this will cause long lines and the crying, wailing and gnashing of teeth.

East Indianola near Market St? Why, that is the neighborhood that Cardinal Mooney is located! Don't these citizens know that school zones are gun-free zones? They should most definitely lose their CCW permits.

Unfortunately for Vivo, his flower shop is situated on SOuthern blvd. adjacent to St Dom's and gang central. Go to his shop and you may wind up buying flowers for your own funeral. It's a catch-22. Business dwindles due to location but you don't have enough money to move your business to a better location and business gets even worse. He admits he owes the taxes and wants to take care of them. Maybe a struggling business owner from the 7th ward is worth the risk. COuld he possibly be even worse than the others that have sat on city council?

Joe, I agree but microfilm can also deteriorate if not stored properly. But, this is where i have the problem with Ohio's law for county government set-up. These people doing the microfilming work in the clerk of courts office and, I'm sure, are quite busy. Ever go to a county court to have your speeding ticket adjudicated? See all the political-appointees (i.e. hacks) sitting at their desks and trying to look busy? Why could these "workers" not immediately scan the documents directly into a computer system so that the clerk's office can then transfer to the appropriate media. Business gets smarter and government stays the same. After all, I'm sure they will all tell you this is just how we always did it!

Schools are funded with property taxes and roads are funded with gas taxes and license fees. Property taxes are dedicated for a specific use. That being said, get ready for proposals for increases in all taxes. Someone has to pay for the public employees health care and pension plans for adequate double-dipping.

I didn't know that this branch was still even open since it is in one of the riskiest neighborhoods in Y-town! As I recall, I believe that a security officer was shot dead in this branch about 35 years ago when it was Union National.

Sister Midge,Christ's instruction to help those less fortunate is a personal directive. "Whenever, YOU did it for the least of my brothers, YOU did it for me." Notice he didn't say when the King did this? I have no problem helping out the truly less fortunate. But, when the government reaches its dirty hands into my pockets and forces me to give them money, I have no choice in who gets the help. Some suffering when the "poor" can get free cell phones!

Dwight, You make a good point abut taxes. Since most of the taxes used for highways is generated by fuel sales, the revenue has been lacking due to better fuel efficiency and the past economic downturn. Now that things have slightly improved, the federal fuel tax should be increased. However, the vast majority of federal funds are distributed to the state govts for projects that must have a percentage of matching funds. For the state of Ohio, this means that most money will be spent for interstates, federal highways and state -route highways. Most of those roads are properly constructed with good bases, pavements, ditches, etc. The bottom of the ladder is the funds for local roads, which are in the worst condition. I believe that most of these types of projects are funded locally with some participation by ODOT funding. The Republicans in Columbus have typically slighted the Mahoning Valley. Not to mention. most federal funds come through ear-mark programs, like the "round-abouts" that are merely done to relieve some congestion. Do you really believe the Mathews Rd. round-about was needed? What about the replacement of the old truss Division Street bridge?
