If you are in a ship that is sinking....jump out. If you live in Youngstown city limits...get out. It will come back some day, but not in our life time.

This is a great ideal !! With all of the new construction in Boardman & Canfield in the last few decades, this is a smart way to provide wild land for the displaced wildlife in thoes areas. Thanks to our "fore fathers" we have the "Mill Creek" park areas. We could do this again on the East side. Good luck making this happen.

I agree with a lot of the other post; the Unions were great in the day. As a retired union worker, I have seen how the unions throw the retires under the bus, for the sake of the workers. This may seem ok, but everyone retires sooner or later, must live on whatever benifits they can derive from the contracts, which is always nothing, for retirees. GM, at one time, had over 11,000 employees at Lordstown; now there are around 4500. Did they really save jobs for the valley ? The union reps. would walk around with their clip boards and go to lunch at the local bars, and pretend that they were working for us. I , now, don't think the were.

Instead of sueing the City, these "out of state slum lords" should be thrown in jail. These people buy homes, neglect them, rent them to the poor, & now want a pay back ? This is why our city is in the condition it is in. I am sure the judge will do the right thing. A start; make the land owner & Trustee Goldstein pay for the house demolition & funeral expenses of the renter.

Geordan took the position a year ago & seems to be doing a good job, but we are not forgetting the board gave him a $3000 a year raise over the last Supt, to start ! That's not the way business works. "You start off low & work up " in the real world.The no busing for the High School students has created a nightmare for the parents of the 9th & 10th graders who do not drive & has made the drop off school drive a "Grand Prix" raceway !! Does the "Board" care ? The students that do drive have a monthly parking fee, "Pay for play', extra fees ( $50) per sport that must be paid to the booster committees for expenses not paid by the school .....all on the backs of the parents. Also, what has happened to the monies donated for the "Middle School track? 120 children, twice a week walking across busy 224 to use the HS track. You really care about the children & the parents of the Canfield students ?? You must do more to show it for my vote.

What kind of example does this set for her children & the others swimming at the pool ? This is a shame & i hope the court puts in her place.

The fact that all of the fire departmens from the surrounding areas joined in to help fight this fire, is heart warming !! Groups as far as Canfield........Our "hats" off to you guys !! We are proud of all of you; you make us feel safe.
