Vindy, its called the Dollar Bank Building. Regardless what the latest name is for the structure, its still the Dollar Bank Building!
The article says the project is viable, but only with heavy government support. Those two statements are not compatible. It is not viable if it has to be supported by the govt. Apparently the need for a store is not great enough to make it truly economically viable.

Tim Ryan didn't seem to care about the people who lost their jobs at the GE plants after he backed the incandescent light bulb ban.
Tim Ryan didn't seem to concerned about the jobs at the Niles power plant when he voted against delaying the ridiculous new EPA pollution requirements that contributed to its closure.
Tim Ryan didn't seem so concerned about the full time jobs that became part time or were lost as a result of the Affordable Care Act which he voted for.
He votes against our wishes every chance he gets. He is supposed to REPRESENT our interests, not sabotage them!

Lanacek, the amount of money spent cleaning up property has no relationship to the fair market value of said property. This is a common misconception, that by spending a bunch of money on something that its value has to rise. Removing the buildings and contamination just gets the land back to zero and its value then reflects all other vacant industrial land in the area.
$10,000 an acre in that part of Youngstown is probably close to the FMV of that land. Since the city did not pay for much of the cleanup anyways, they will not be taking much of a hit.

The question that we should be asking is, why does that mother have three children in the first place is she can't afford to feed them? I always love how people use the example of a large impoverished family to justify taking more of my hard earned money. Having more children that one can take care of is not my problem. I take good care of myself and my family, because we know our limits.

More Ohioans are assuming the responsibility for protecting themselves. This is a great trend!

Why is this even a news story? Students have been walking to school long before I went to Hubbard in the 80s.

Schiavoni seems to think that this money rightfully belongs to the government. 'If you are going to invest $404 millions somewhere" is a ludicrous statement. Giving people back what is rightfully theirs is not an investment, but a refund for overcharging.

The antifrackers don't care about anyone's rights but their own. they have no respect for others property, as their entire campaign is based upon taking away property owners' rights. So for them to come to the event to distribute flyers is perfectly in line with their ends justify the means strategy.

Meanwhile, those same city people who are so adamant that this historic building be preserved are just as adamant that an even more historic structure, the William Tod Co. plant be torn down. Not all history is given the same stature. Industrial history isn't valued much at all in this city.
