Would any of this matter if the individual was a truck driver from (pick a city), a Dr from (pick a city) ? You get the idea. What difference in hell would it make... The point is that this incident appears to be drug related, an innocent individual was assaulted and robbed and some, not all, immediately begin to direct under educated opinions towards teachers, unions, and every other issue except the real issue. I am not an educator, nor a union member. I have no issues with educators or unions. I do believe however that people need to take responsibility for themselves and their families. As a society we are too soft, too lenient. I do believe in second chances, but not third or fourth. Laws are laws. Figure it out, it is unfortunate, drugs can and do ruin lives, however, if you cannot control yourself, someone else should. Your rights should be taken away when you cannot or will not function as part of a normal society. I am not for more government or more policing, just a more effective enforcement of what we have. You need to earn and make your place in society it is not given. It is not a race, religious, or gender issue, it is societal.. Figure it out

Shouldn't the article have also mentioned that Dennis was at one time, and still may be a part time police officer in Struthers, a Mahoning County Deputy, and co-owner of a local landscape and snow removal company. Will any time be served or restitution made..hmmmmm

I applaud & commend the workers and may, though with much reservation, acknowledge the union officials...you are given a product, told to build it a certain way and that's that. So, I presume you do the best you can. You are the working class like the majority of us, but..I have just seen the Cruze, touched the Cruze, sat in the Cruze, and had the opportunity to drive it. No fault of the workers at Lordstown but the car is junk. No way can it compete with similar models both domestic and foreign.. Anyone going to the Fair, check it out.. It is a glorified Cavalier, nothing more, nothing less.. Hopefully the Impala, Malibu, and Regal sell well...I hope the Volt, a whole other story, has something better to offer. Nice try and keep pluggin Lordstown workers..you made the best with you were given. Junk.

Every little bit helps..I wish them/us well.But hey Vindy, is it wise to put a photo GM's President in front of a Fred Martin Ford sign? Check your front page.

Here's a better idea...keep the plate fee as is...work on Election day instead of having a paid day off....list all, if any, concessions they have taken in the past 2 contracts..merge the "traffic" department with the "maintenance" department...continue to outsource projects to contractors that are able to perform the paving, culvert, and other projects in timely manner. Simple example, 5-7 days to complete a project, w/1 rain day built in. Day 9 not completed..Day 10 no payment. Simple. Lastly keep Tablack's paws out of the Engineering funds... This isn't that hard people

Hopefully the administration will do what it needs to do.. and so, the rumor mill has started already w/the following candidate names being tossed out there: Harlon Barnett, an assistant @ Michigan State, Rick Shepas, former YSU player/grad, now head coach @ Wayneburg, and Dick Angle from Howland High School...

“Now, [Williams] will be fighting Sergio Martinez in a 3,500-seat ballroom and we’ll be fighting at home. That tells you who the draw is.”
This a bold statement Mr. Loew considering you haven't sold "a" single ticket yet. You also failed to mention that Williams is guaranteed a little over 650k for the fight. Hmmmm.... Hope the hand heals and good luck Kelly

It is what it is...nothing more / nothing less. Hope to see everyone for the after "sparring match" party @ BW or the 13th round. This includes everyone heading to Disney on Ice.

Send it this way..I know of several locations in Youngstown, Austintown,...anywhere that has 70 acres available. All close to 76/80/680/11 and plenty of trucking companies that can get it from here to there or even from a rail yard
