In my earlier diatribe, I neglected to mention the proliferation of the "going out of business" and "liquidation" signs. There must be some law on the books that can put an end to the store across from the Sunrise Inn abusing our city with ugly signs everywhere. There are sign ordinances that prohibit such advertising in residential districts. Again, a no cost fix--if someone from the city is willing to do it. Is City Hall proud of how are city looks? Does the Tribune not see the Warren abyss?

Instead of writing to provoke more inane comments, maybe it's time for the editors of Tribune to drive thru Warren and see what we see everyday. I realize few, if any live here, but why not take pictures of the graffiti (more now than ever), the broken down "welcome to Warren" signs, the debris on the streets, even downtown, the paint peeling on our buildings, etc. These are not big cost items to fix. Does the Tribune even do investigative reporting anymore, or does staff just sell ads? Not living here maybe you don't care, but many still do--it might be nice for your editorial staff to become passionate about how this city looks and how our city leaders cry no funds when the fix is someone actually managing the city and its employees! Try writing something that will create some positive actions instead of negative trivial commentary.

"...try to change the contracts that the city has with their employees."

Mission Impossible. The collusion runs far and deep. Has for years.

Who thinks these stupid Onions? Tim earned this time it's part of his contract. If whoever thinks up this stupid column doesn't like it then they should try to change the contracts that the city has with their employees. Otherwise shut-up,,

No money to hire new people because they have to reserve it for Benefits Conversion.

The guy in Newton Falls just got 50 clams for getting fired, lol.
