On July 18, 1982, The Youngstown Vindicator published a special report on the federal government's crackdown
on organized crime and government corruption in the Mahoning Valley. You can view the actual pages from that edition by clicking on the PDF file below. (The electronic reprints of the pages were provided by the Information Services Department of the Public Library of Youngstown and Mahoning County.)
