I am so happy to see so many people standing up for Warren. The truth is there are a few bums here but most of the people are good honest people and that's what defines a town. We can't let the bums win, whether they are criminals or nay say-ers or just bad politicians. If you really love Warren, attend the meeting at the Wean Foundation in downtown Warren on Tuesday, August 20th, 2013 at 5:30pm and you will be absolutely amazed at what is going on. Put up or shut up folks! Hope to see the room overflowing with great people like you! Nay say-ers and bums need not attend.

Warren used to be a jewel of a city. When the politics became dishonest and the WPD started looking the other way with drugs Warren slid to it's lowest. Crime is rampant, houses are empty streets and sidewalk and roads are terrible - Warren is in the process of total decay and will not improve until we wake up and get rid of our elected leaders and replace them with honest and interested people.

If anyone is want to look at the history go to the public library and look at the newspapers they have on the films. They have pages on Facebook where people post pics of the past it is real nice to see downtown filled with shoppers

An aspect of this area often overlooked is the active retirement community. From Scope to satellite meals, from tax help to volunteer work and the shows, and $ put into the local economy by occasional meals out. Seniors are participating in schools and youth clubs as mentors, grandparents and all around good people to know. They are passing on a great amount of learning and heritage.

This is wonderful. I hope it gets much press when it comes out.

I know both Mr Toles and Mayor Franklin and know what great things they do for Warren. They both deserve much credit for the success stories in Warren. Many of them you will never read about in the tribune.

Oh and there are churchs, temples and representation of so many faiths. I really like the diversity and the choices available.

Sorry this was meant for KSMITH...

no apologies needed. I appreciate the help. I think msmith means well- which is why I continually try to reason with her--but it never ends well, she just refuses to concede.

mssmith: You missed my point! I have been reading the tribune daily even when I didnt live in Ohio! There are many good stories but it seems you want your stories, while discounting a perfectly good story actually promoting Warren!! Yet while this story is right in front you have successfully killed the joy of this article by ranting about what you want to see. People have been reasonable in explanations yet you have simply repeated your mantra.

Thats not effecting the change you want to see, is it?

msmith82: There are actually 2 positive stories in today's paper, this one and "Pitch Perfect". Have you read it yet? Make sure you head over there and share your appreciation for what THOSE young people are doing in our city as well. I agree with another poster, it sounds like you just want to hear YOUR story.

Robin how would you feel if you grew up reading day in and day out all the negative things written about a city you took pride in. I am saying there is not enough positive stories about warren. All you read is about crime or you read comments on here about how bad warren is. I wish the tribune would do more positive stories wouldn't that raise the moral of the city to read more positive things like teens doing a food drive instead of a drug dog finding pot which would you like to read about a pot smoking student or the teen trying to make a difference in someone's life.

Perhaps it would be advantageous for the lemonade kids to donate their proceeds to kids in more need. I would bet if each child donated their $75 to say the Beatitude House Kids, Someplace Safe kids or the kids living in the Mission, now that would be a feel good story and worthy of reporting!

Also if the lemonade kids were part of a recognized organization say, the Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, or Boys & Girls Clubs, I would think the article would have been published.

Shame this article is being clouded with cliches and Debbie Downer style posts!

Perhaps if you send a resume in to the Trib you can pick and chose the stories you want. Meanwhile why knock the good ones that are being published. 2fishinfools: Sorry I kinda jumped into your tete-a-tete with Msmith. My apologies.

2fishinfools I want more positive stories because it is a lot better then reading about drug busts and robberies.

Ksmith my pount is there is not enough of these feel good stories. Do you know that my freshman year we were the ones who did all of the planting of the flowers downtown and we grew all of the red flowers they planted at the veterans graves. Wouldn't it have been nice for the citizens of warren to read something positive their young adults were doing. Wouldn't it renew the faith a little bit about the young adults coming out of warren.

"I think it is about time the tribune does a positive story about warren instead of all the negative ones."

WHAT IS THIS STORY? YOU DON'T WANT A POSITIVE STORY- YOU WANT "YOUR" STORY.

2fishingfools you will never get it because you did not grow up in warren and read day in and day out about someone doing bad. As a kid growing up in a city wouldn't you want to read something positive instead of something negative all the time.

2fishingfools you have missed my point I grew up in warren and have seen good people doing good things all of the time. The residents who are doing good in the city get out shadowed by the ones who are thugs that the tribune love to report about. I think it is about time the tribune does a positive story about warren instead of all the negative ones.
