  PENGUINS EYE NATIONAL TITLE  
  Youngstown State vs. James Madison:   January 5, 2017 Edition  
     The Youngstown State football team will appear in the 2017 NCAA Division I football championship game against James Madison this Sat., Jan. 7 in Frisco, Texas. Kickoff for the contest between the Penguins and the Dukes is set for 12:05 p.m. (eastern time) at Toyota Stadium. The game will be available on ESPN2 and on the radio on WKBN 570 AM.
      YSU (12-3) continued its postseason to remember with a final-second 40-38 win at Eastern Washington on a frigid, 5-degree afternoon at Roos Field in Cheney, Wash. on Dec. 17. The Penguins scored 20 fourth-quarter points in the come-from-behind win after trailing 31-20 at the start of the period.
      Down 11 points, an interception in the end zone by Billy Nicoe Hurst late in the third quarter helped turned the momentum YSU’s way.

  Dog’s ‘Foster Parent’ Has Concerns With Animal Charity  
  December 15, 2016 Edition  
     “If I made a mistake,
      It wasn’t with Bubbles”
     
      EDITOR:
      I am writing this letter to bring to light my situation as the first foster parent of a dog named Bubbles, who was found this summer on Chicago Ave. in Youngstown and turned over to Animal Charity, 4142 Market St. in Boardman.

  VOTE NOV. 8: Township, Local School District Renewal Tax Issues On Nov. 8 General Election Ballot  
  County Races For Judgeship, Treasurer Draw Particular Interest:   November 3, 2016 Edition  
     Three tax renewal issues and two liquor issues are the only local issues on the election ballot on Tues., Nov. 8.
      Boardman Township, that operates on a $17 million general fund annual budget, is seeking renewal of a 3-mil issue for five years; and a seventh-tenths-mil issue that raises funds for five years.
      The 3-mil issue generates about $1.32 million a year, while the seven-tenths-mil levy raises about $260,000 a year. Both issues were first-approved by the electorate in 1976. With no additional tax funding, township trustees have pledged to construct a new, main fire station at Stadium Dr. and Market St. Groundbreaking for that project is expected to be held next year.
      Most of the funding for the new fire station is expected to come from the sale of township property at Southern Blvd. and Rt. 224 (where the main fire station is now located.)...Read More >>
