    When is Burger King coming to Barberton?

      They aren’t. They went bankrupt and so did the city.

    I wonder how fossils of sea life are found in the mountains? Maybe the climate has changed before? Nah!! They must have had wings back then!!! *WARNING* Expect climate change today!! Its gonna start out a little chilly then its going to warm up!!

  4. Vote 4 Soyars on April 9, 2019 at 1:28 pm

    Mike Soyars needs to run for office.

    • Damage inc on April 9, 2019 at 6:11 pm

      Guys like Soyars and Lysenko from the past are all the same. They are decent rep’s but have no desire to run for mayor. Lysenko did a half arse run a couple of years ago but he had zero campaign idea’s and no plan if he did get elected. Let’s face it, this town is a complete mess. The only way to fix this town would be a good natural disaster and then have the orange menace get you some funds to re-build. You have zero foundation to build upon and most of your residents live off government handouts. Game over, sell and leave while you can. Then the trolls on this forum can stay here with the trash !

        Don’t despair. Remember that the Green Hornet has thrown his hat into the ring and is running for Mayor. Let’s give a political outsider a chance. The powers that be don’t seem to satisfy many Viewsline readers. Make Barberton Great Again…go Green Hornet!

    • Emily Jones on April 11, 2019 at 3:03 pm

      Soyars for Mayor

  5. Concerned Citizen on April 5, 2019 at 4:14 pm

    I hope the City of Barberton is aware of the liability they assumed by taking over Slovene Center, when a function is scheduled and takes place there are people coming and going and alcohol is being served. Even if Slovene has all the proper liability insurance including liquor liability the owner of the property will also be held accountable for any occurrence which may happen. I haven’t heard of any other City who owns a club which serves alcohol ….. have you !

    • Iconoclast on April 6, 2019 at 4:43 am

      Maybe the City is listening to the fortune telling mediums that say our future is ice skating and breweries???

      how about we only post when this city and it’s so called leadership makes a wise decision ? * insert crickets here *
      every decision made by your current group is clearly made with no real thought process or financial number crunching
      VOTE HORNET !! Of course he has no real chance but the total number of votes he get’s shows how bad Judge really is. Bet the Hornet gets over 1000.

      • Big Dorky on April 9, 2019 at 6:38 am

        You would lose that bet dork face. No one in this town votes. Bunch of rental properties and white trash living by lake Anner. AMHA bringing in all the leftover scum from Akron and even Cleveland (like the fire people).Crimsin terrass, projects, Al Peter, Tusk sky rise and West side building are not gonna get you too many votes. Same reason why our schools are at a D rating. Half these kids do not have Mommy and Daddy to help cheat on projects and do homework for them. (or help them study the right way ) Open your eyes or better yet keep them closed and vote for a fictional character. This aint 1976 for cryin out loud.

        • Harvey the rabbit on April 9, 2019 at 8:59 am

          Dang Big Dorky, you are scaring me into NOT moving to Barberton. I sure hope you’re not on Barberton’s tourist attraction board

        • Big Daddy on April 9, 2019 at 6:01 pm

          Your rant has been posted on here 100 times over by myself and others. My post was about our cruddy leadership and that the hornet has no chance. his number of votes will send a message to your cruddy leadership. stay on topic next time and don’t just blurt out a post. Back off the caffeine and chill wee man

          • Emily Jones on April 12, 2019 at 3:39 pm

            I’m confused. Why are there so many geese at lake Ann? Can’t we get dogs there to scare them away?

            • Lake Annie on April 14, 2019 at 11:54 am

              They have to drain all the water out so the geese will go to another place where there is water. Dogs are not allowed at Lake Annie.

    • Jerry Atrick on April 5, 2019 at 11:36 am

      Too bad he’s the only one trying to run. Everyone in town thinks they can do better but only one name in the hat to challenge.

    • Jocularity 152 on April 6, 2019 at 4:46 am

      Indeed yes! The Hornet would shake up things at City Hall. He could do for Barberton as Donald Trump has done for America. MAKE BARBERTON GREAT AGAIN and put the Green Hornet at the helm!

      • Brock Insane O'Bozo on April 6, 2019 at 5:55 am

        Hornet is a DEMO-crat so probably not.

      You Trump tards are clueless. The cities demise has been a direct result of leadership that had and currently has no vision for the future and or economic common sense. Big whoop if your prev mayor [s] has been democrat. Party affiliation has no bearing on local works. Compare Wadsworth and Barberton 25 years ago. Barberton had jobs and Wadsworth way a rural speed bump. Now look at the 2. One community planned and crunched numbers for the future while the other planned no retail development while at the same time good paying jobs left in the middle of the night. Simple. Stick to your soap opera’s and judge judy. The orange menace loves his blind followers.

Your municipal workers have been ripp’in us off for decades now, Your teachers slack off 4 months a year and teach little Jimmy with computer programs and video’s, yawn ! They rank in the bottom 60-70 districts state wide.Your municipal workers sip polar pops and scratch lotto tics while you are paying $300 for a busted ball joint after you hit a pond sized chuck hole. Your mayor laid a bunch of people off and while causing wide spread panic and then after a 2nd number crunch everything is now ok. Can you imagine Bill Judge doing carpentry work? The ole measure twice cut once would not be his strong suit.

      The fire department absolutely disgusts me. I hope you realize that the pensions they receive will pay them about 75% of their top 5 years average salary. Guys making $100K will retire and collect $6K a month for life from a city that is losing its tax dollars base as jobs leave town. This is insane and why cities are cutting services where they can.

      Does anybody else besides me and my co workers have a problem with the eastbound red light on Robinson at 5th st. At 3:30-4:00am, the light stays red! Me and my buddies have either ran the light or shortcutted through the bank or Giant Eagle! This has been going on for at least 10 yrs. Public official told me it’s a long light, sat there for 10 minutes one time and then treated it as a 4 way stop. Now the police are cracking down, instead of taking a longer route or sitting there until daylight, maybe then we should fix the light, the police know about the problem does anybody else? Just trying to get to work that’s all !

      • Red light district on March 19, 2019 at 3:08 pm

        Did you call the utilities department? Did you call the City building? Did you take the next step to solve the issue? Don’t be part of the problem, say something to help the problem.

What’s your beef with the fire department? Did you try to be a fireman and couldn’t cut it?

They’ll be happy….It’s not much of a park anymore anyways, not kept up well…and We’ll be happy…the City would make enough money get out of the hole and rehire workers.

      from what I researched the City made $275,000 just from 4 acres of Tuscora Park. And even if Summa doesn’t have immediate plans for it.. to have pre-acquired the land around it will be a Bargaining chip for any other Medical facility interested in it, if they plan the move on. to know They can expand any time they want without all the “red tape” of acquiring it, will attract more Serious contenders to our city, maybe a nice big burn unit and a children’s wing, like at Rainbow? why not put our City on the Map? (for something other than Chicken Restaurants) think of the Benefits to the Community (not to have to go to Akron) for one thing….and Tax Revenue, when built someday? meanwhile folks who want to hang on to those “PAST childhood memories,” what good is that… doing our economy.??? wake up! grow up….The hospital can create an agreement with the City that until they Plan to develop or sell ..the City may continue to run the Land as a Park for the Citizens and maintain it, thus relieving Summa from that burden, and the property will be TAX FREE.. until such time. I don’t know how many Acres are left, but surely a Million dollars worth! Barberton makes Money… You’ll still have a Park for probably a good while, and someday we’ll have a First Rate Top Notch LARGE Medical Facility. One that will bring Jobs and future Tax revenue ..and Summa will be able to use the Potential to also close a great Deal. It’s a win win..option, esp. when you are a City hurting for money, “that doesn’t grow on trees”… but actually it Could ….from Tuscora Park!……. (and the neighbors to the park, who oppose, will have plenty of time… to put up those “for sale signs”)…….at least something to Think about. huh?

These are not Barberton people. These are pay check hungry money mops. How many lieutenants do we need? How bout the mattresses that were donated? Does anybody know why they needed mattresses? Money – the cause of all evil. Take a pay cut then make it back with all the overtime. Put in a little extra. And stop with the poor me mentality. Everyone has a home and family. How much money is wasted on 2 parades per year so we can hear loud sirens?

You are a joke. I hope you aren’t from Barberton…because if so, you are a disgrace to that city. Also- Barberton firemen have it harder than many other fire departments. They are constantly saving lives due to the drug epidemics and other emergency situations in that city. You should go ahead and volunteer at the department once to see what exactly they do before you open your big, dumb mouth again.

      Since you clearly were not present at the council meeting based on your lack of intelligence on this issue, let me set the record straight for you.

      Understaffing is what is causing SOME firemen to make so much money. The overtime is outrageous because the city allows it to be. If you hire more firemen, you end up avoiding paying overtime. Those few that made 6 figures WORKED (something you seem to be inexperienced in) 500-700 hours of overtime. They got that much because others did not want to work overtime…thus, understaffing being the problem.

      The mattresses (2 were donated out of the 20 needed) because there was a bedbug infestation and the city ignored the problem. The mattresses are needed because these men work 24 hour shifts protecting people of the city.

          SPOT ON! Those who work within the department do not want people to know that. The general public would be shocked at how much personal time off a tenured firefighter can accumulate.

The school board needs to use one monitored enterance with a metal detector. Kenmore started doing it years ago and no more weapons are brought in. Lets get with the times and keep the school safe for everyone!

      • Cardinal rams on January 25, 2019 at 6:29 am

        Kenmore is safer than Barberton ?

      • Point is? on January 25, 2019 at 1:57 pm

      You are wasting your time on this forum. The trolls with a 5th grade maturity level continue to post juvenile remarks by the hundred’s on here. A once valuable community resource, this forum has turned into a safe haven for immature fools. The Herald needs to block the IP addresses of these a$$ clowns so we can go back to good community debate and sharing. This town’s leadership continues to waste taxpayer dollars while large tax paying employer’s slip out the back door. Read the council minutes and you would be amazed at how fast your tax dollars are being spent because we the voters gave council the right to “emergency” every expenditure. This means sub contractor checks are being written before the council even adjourns. This town could have saved millions by doing our own street repairs. You only get state & fed $ for state route listed roadways, all of the side streets are done with taxpayer $.

    I hope the City is keeping an eye on what just happened to Akron and Republic Recycling, now refusing glass containers….Barberton do not allow Kimble to follow suit.. if they do, sue for breach of contract…what is the point of recycling? if they stop accepting glass containers too, I am just going to plain stop recycling. **I know they hadn’t said anything yet, but..really there are only so many Places – Trash – Recycle Haulers can go to. and usually if one decides to make a major change, others will follow…. how awful.

    So a young adult can go serve their country at 18 years of age but Barberton wants to make it illegal to smoke cigs until 21 ? This town is so dysfunctional. Leadership’s thought process around here is mental constipation. If my home’s value was not plummeting into the toilet, it would be almost comical. By the way, it’s that time of year. HEY CITY STREET & POLICE DEPT, START FINING THE IDIOTS THAT BLOWS LEAVES INTO THE ROADWAYS AND DOWN INTO THE CRUMBLING SEWER SYSTEM. Unlike the crazy smoking idea, we do have ordinances against dumping leaves into the roadways. See it on every city block this time of year. Barberton teachers….. take a lesson from the football team. With hard work and no excuses, perfection is possible! Great season Magics & coach Gotto.

    Good read via the Cleveland Plain Dealer online today. Ohio school district report cards are out. Barberton ranks 536 out of 601 districts state wide. They narrowly escaped an F rating by clinging to a D. They achieved 2 out of 23 state requirements. JUST PLAIN SAD !! Considering how much this district has repeatedly leaned on the taxpayer wallets over the past 18 years this needs to be addressed immediately and with swift change. This is what happens when a district has the mentality of ” doing the state required minimum” for everything. So much for the theory that good schools help to increase your home value, hey ? DEMAND MORE AND VOTE DOWN ALL FUTURE LEVIES !

      I hope the younger generation in America can put down their electronics long enough to see how easy a mild form of Nazism can grow and spread. You trump tards are truly a scary bunch and the poor and lower middle class need’s to get out and vote ! It is not about white versus black or poor versus rich. It is about the deplorable mindset exhibited by the majority of trump supporters. This forum is littered with such remarks. I would like to ask the Herald to clean up the juvenile comments and antics posted here. This forum should be a constructive tool for all. I would be embarrassed for someone in a neighboring community to read this forum. Do you really want to be known as Barbertucky?

        How many of you out there just go ahead and rake and bag and drop off leaves at Edgewood, knowing the city dropped the ball a long time ago. Yeah it used to be a new norm, but hey, at least it’s done at the right time and the city doesn’t tick me off! Just wondering what would happen if an outsider ran for office against the establishment in this city? Hey Hodge you got your ears on? Come on man, shake things up! Most people agree with you because you say what we’re already thinking!

        • Idea on September 16, 2018 at 9:32 am

          Why not just chop the leaves up with a mulching mower while keeping up with the mowings in the Fall? I started doing that a few years ago because it is much easier than raking all of them and it is also good for the lawn. They will come by this area in mid-October before leaves even start falling and then by the time they make a second pass through here, if they get around to it, then it is almost the end of December and you have piles of leaves sitting there in the street for several weeks. Hopefully you don’t have snow in that time frame or else the plows will push them back into your yard or onto your neighbors yard. I think they need to think about starting in November as opposed to October though. Most times leaves don’t start falling down in bunches until after Halloween.

          • Thanks on September 23, 2018 at 7:19 am

  110. NA on September 4, 2018 at 9:19 am

    Very disappointed in the Barberton Band staff. Ever since the current staff became in charge the quality of the band significantly dropped. The band is barely audible at the games, the Alma Mater has been re-written and sounds terrible, traditions have been discarded, and the band does nothing exciting to get the crowd excited for the game. Not to mention many students say how the staff is rude and condescending to them and makes band unenjoyable for them. Many stay in band and deal with it because they want to play their instrument and there is no alternative. Our students’ musical talents are being wasted by a staff that looks out for only themselves and not the community or students. They are damaging to our band history and band program and they need to go.

    • Nicholas Ratay on September 4, 2018 at 8:23 pm

      I don’t agree with all of the changes our staff has made to the band, but I do know that our band program is good and strong. We are blessed to have, in my opinion, some of the most talented high school musicians in the state performing on the field. We should be very proud of our band!

I’ll say the same about music.To glorify a form of pastime/entertainment is silly.Sports are great way to stay in shape and keep the ruffians off the streets for the most part.Also a great way for parents to live vicariously through their kids.How about glorifying god and country.Our military.Our doctors.Our police.Our teachers.Our farmers.Our business owners who provided jobs.etc.At the end of it all its only a game Fokker!!

I feel Sessions was Trump’s biggest mistake yet. I hate the tweets and some of what he has said, but love what he is doing in the economy, tax cuts, stock market, jobs etc. Trump for me was the lesser of the two evils, but out of love of country I proudly support him, and hope Republicans can keep control in mids to keep America great!

Raised tariff’s which in return caused other countries do the same to our exported goods. The list is endless. Keep enjoying the dysfunctional reality tv show that resides in the White House.

    Why do we have high school maintenance workers working outside on Sunday’s? Are we paying double time to cut grass? Been this way for a couple of summers now. Nothing against the workers but that does not sound like reasonable spending of taxpayer dollars. Also noticed the high school gym being used from time to time on Sunday’s. Don’t remember that ever happening back in the day. What is going on down at Norton ave on Sundays? Since my taxes have doubled in 15 years due to the school district, think these are reasonable questions.

      that’s the POINT! we should not have to remind our reps, that we need sprayed, this should be done automatically and regularly, not on demand. after all they are taking our payments for this service. and yeh I know only $15 but x’s all our citizens owning property… is quite allot of dough. we should not have remind them to spray our streets.

    28th street off Hudson run is the fastest way for emergency vehicles to get to the back roads aka noble, stratford, prospect etc.. because of lack of 4 way stops. also folks tend to zoom down the road, people walk this road to go to the family dollar or to the custard stand, all this to say it is a very busy road and once again, the basement house at the corner of auburn and 28th have that wiry bush all overgrown and your car has to be 1/3 of the way out in the street just to see the cross traffic … that is zooming up the 28th street hill to gain momentum, drivers either lay on the horn at you or swerve to miss you and possibly collide with an oncoming car. there have been a few accidents over the years at this corner. why can’t the owner of this house see they are endangering drivers and pedestrians? and now we have kids on bikes being summer… Please trim the stupid bush back..way down. or just get rid of it. hoping a police officer will drive down the street and see for themselves what a possible accident this could pose. ..and while you’re at it Officer… after 6pm notice the parking war on Auburn between 29th and 28th. barely enough room for one car to squeeze through without taking off the side door mirrors, no way for 2 way traffic let alone a possible ER vehicle. people are placing concrete blocks and orange cones to discourage parking and people are just parking next to them, for spite, thus being in the middle of the road. surely there is a law about road and traffic clearance. right? and obstructing the view at an intersection… thanks

  122. Jenny on July 8, 2018 at 10:16 pm

    I drove around Ohio this week and came home on Rt 21. Got off on the Barberton exit at Rt 585, only to rediscover the potholes from Hell at J & R Wheel. Well, they were filled up, but it was patch upon patch upon patches. Guess I’m home now, the roads are BAD here. Nowhere else that I went were nearly as bad as here. I went to the south, southwest, through farm country and city, and no roads were equal to ours. This is not something that we should be proud of, it should be something that motorizes us to action! So, where are the road repair trucks? And I don’t mean those stupid tar and chip trucks, either! Those do nothing but make the road look pretty for a season or two, then it’s back to pothole Hell again. For those who fear public reaction to road repair action: think again. The roads are so bad that any true repair work is worthy of celebration in this town! Bring out the trucks! Bring out the rollers and hot asphalt!

      Between 10AM and 10:15AM on July 13, 2018. Near the corner of 5th ST SE and Robinson Ave. I was waiting for a 14 bus by the CVS. I heard a firetruck coming down 5th St from the hospital. They were going lights and sirens. Everyone was pulling over and stopping like they are supposed to do. Every except for a red pick up truck that was coming down Robinson and made a left hand turn on to 5th St right in front of the fire truck. Fortunately the fire truck was able to stop. The red pick up had to drive up on to someone’s well manicured lawn in order to get out of the way.

      To that pick up truck driver. You could have caused a very serious accident! Were you drinking? Shooting up something? Smoking something? Talking on your cellphone? I sincerely hope you were caught on camera. I sincerely hope you get a ticket. I sincerely hope they throw the book at you!

      I think they should use the lake for a youth fishing program with their parents . I can’t believe the number of kids these days who have never been fishing or hunting. I raised my children in the outdoors . Every Saturday they were up at 5am hitting the lake or woods. Not sleeping till noon playing video games getting in trouble. Now their grown adults and we still spend every weekend in the outdoors!!

            I didn’t mean to imply that the police were slacking, the funny thing about dealers is they don’t want to get caught. So I believe it takes multiple calls for them to bring them down. Barberton Police can be picked up on any smart phone. So they can get a heads up. I support our police and congratulate them on bringing another one down. The building department I give a F for allowing the scrapyard to continue for so long. In fact on the bust it was the police that called them down to take pictures and finally do something!

          I think you should be happy the way Barberton kept the roads this winter and thankful you don’t live in the Norton school district I live in New Franklin my children graduated 10 years ago and this pushy witch Jennifer Bennett is demanding we pass yet another school levy Norton gives New Franklin nothing we have wells for are water and pay for our trash pick-up, we have our own fire department and police department so what give this lady the right to tell me I have to pass this, I had to pay for my children to play years ago how much more can you bleed the tax payers.

            If it’s like Barberton, they will keep putting it back on the ballot until it passes. It’s not if, but when. It looks like enough homeowners showed up to temporarily put a hold on it. But where else could it come from??

      potholes no the vodka you must be swilling at 1230 am yes. try hitting the coffee pot and try posting an adult comment for change. you and a handful of other juvenile trolls have killed a forum that once was used to share city wide issues but then again you city backing cronies wanted that to begin with. job well done. go take another 40 hours of PTO time out of petty cash aka taxpayer money

      • blah blah blah on March 28, 2018 at 7:43 am

        city wide issues? no….all you do is complain and talk trash about people.. we turned this forum on you and you don’t like it… go blow smoke somewhere else…. better yet move out of Barberton….move now!

        • blah blah blah on March 28, 2018 at 7:47 am

          And I wouldn’t step foot into the coffee pot. that place is discus ting and should be shut down. Norm is shaking his head.
