ONION: To Warren Safety Service Director Enzo Cantalamessa for not quickly finding a way to reopen Old Avalon Golf Course and for not returning calls or letters from those, like Chris Prince, who do business with the course. It now seems unlikely that the decades-old landmark will continue to exist.
ORCHID: To Robert Dimitri of Haute-Saone, France, who contacted Howland WWII veteran Paul Lubiak after finding his military-issued jacket left behind more than 4,000 miles away and 69 years ago.
ORCHID: To Warren Councilwoman Helen Rucker for pointing out, in the midst of her colleagues trying to pass false alarm fines, that Warren already has similar legislation that it doesn't enforce. And ONION to those trying to increase revenue through fines, which are really just more taxes.
ORCHID: To Newton Falls officials for reaching out to their counterparts in Newton and Braceville townships to combine police departments, but an ONION for not further researching the option of contracting with the Trumbull County Sheriff's Office.
ONION: To State Rep. Kristina Roegner, R-Hudson, for proposing that natural gas suppliers be allowed to tack on marketing costs to the price gas sells for in market auctions. This could cause rate increases for residential customers. Local Reps. Tom Letson, D-Warren, and Sean O'Brien, D-Brookfield, should oppose the idea.
ORCHID: To the Wean Foundation for its continued dedication to the Mahoning Valley, shown recently when the organization awarded nearly $900,000 in grants to nonprofits in Trumbull and Mahoning counties.
ORCHID: To law enforcement in Braceville and the surrounding area for showing such a low tolerance for suspected illegal activities at a local massage parlor. Police raided Four Seasons Spa last summer. It reopened as The Rose Spa, which police raided last week.
