This blog, originally called Youngstown Pride, started in 2004 as a place to capture the details of what was happening in Youngstown, Ohio. It was also the year I stopped being a permanent resident of this town. Today it includes infrequent rant, comments and thoughts into happenings of my hometown. The original name was an homage to my favorite semi-pro basketball team, the Youngstown Pride. Email me at youngstownpride -at- gmail.com.
