    Triple murder defendant jumps to his death off courthouse balcony YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -- A triple murder defendant jumped to his death from a fourth-floor balcony in an Ohio county courthouse Monday, CBS Youngstown affiliate WKBN reports. Robert Seman landed in the courthouse rotunda. A sheet was put over his body. In 1947, Frank Rigelsky committed suicide by jumping off a railing -- from the fourth floor -- in the same courthouse where Seman jumped to his death, according to court employees. Rigelsky had been worried about making alimony payments to his estranged wife following his involvement in a car accident,...

    Mentioned by a fox news analyst whose name I cannot remember or find. It was on Bret Baier tonight. He say's that this is Trumps roadmap to defeating ISIS. I went and rewatched and and was surprised what's been overlooked in this speech. Find the spot where Trump says we're going to be brutal. Is Trump going to break the Western Paradigm as noted by Charles De Gaulle in recollecting the Algerian war? That "The west is not brutal enough to beat the Arabs" and "The world would not tolerate it". I hope Trump is Militarily brutal and completely destroys...

    Youngstown Mayor supports housing refugees in Youngstown prison Last week, the Wall Street Journal reported Department of Homeland Security wants to buy space at the Hubbard Road prison. YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Youngstown Mayor John McNally did not hesitate on Monday when asked for his opinion about Haitian refugees being housed at Youngstown’s private prison. “I’m very much in favor of having the opportunity to fill that facility up — not only with detainees — but also with employees,” he said. The main entrance to the Northeast Ohio Correctional Center is off Route 62 on Youngstown’s east side. On the...

    Introductory remarks by Rudy Giuliani and Mike Pence, who speak about the ways they know each other well and why they admire each other, as well as having confidence in Donald Trump. This is an appearance that was not interrupted by protesters. An enthusiastic audience applauds and chants appreciatively. Mr. Trump speaks presidentially from prepared notes, but does not hold back. As Mike Pence said in his opening, "You will hear today a broad-shouldered vision to confront our enemies, restore our security and once again have America command the respect of the world."

    About 1,000 Democrats in Mahoning County so far have switched their party affiliation to Republican with election officials saying several did it to vote for Donald Trump, the GOP presidential front-runner. “We are seeing something this election cycle I’ve never seen before to this degree,” said board Chairman Mark Munroe, who’s also the county Republican chairman. “Every day I take phone calls or get voice messages from people saying they’ve been Democrats all their life and they’ve had it. They want to vote for Donald Trump. I’m surprised at the volume of inquiries we’re getting. It’s remarkable.”

    YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Fear of terrorism has swept much of the west in the wake of the Nov. 13 attacks on Paris, and Monday, that fear hit home for Youngstown residents. Youngstown State University Students rallied to re-paint the school’s famed rock Monday afternoon to cover over a message supporting terrorist group ISIS written earlier in the day, but not before it sparked shock and outrage. Multiple viewers submitted messages to WKBN with photos of the rock, which is located outside the school’s Kilcawley Center and is frequently used to advertise for events on campus. One side said, “YSU...

    Along the banks of the Mahoning River in the struggling Ohio steel town of Youngstown sits a once-abandoned furniture warehouse that has been converted into a sleek new laboratory. Inside is a Silicon Valley-style workspace complete with open meeting areas and colorful stools. Several 3-D printers hum in the background, while engineers type computer codes that tell the machines how to create objects by layering materials. The lab, called America Makes, is the first in a series of so-called “manufacturing innovation hubs” that President Barack Obama has launched with the promise that they could revitalize America’s industrial sector and spur...

    Police reports say a woman in the 100 block of East Judson Avenue shot a man who broke into her house early Friday. Police were called to the home about 2:15 a.m. for a burglary in progress, where dispatchers told them they heard a woman scream, a man yell “don’t do it, don’t do it,” and the line then went dead. First officers at the home said a back window was broken out, and a trash can was propped underneath the window for someone to get in. The 39-year-old woman who lives in the home let police in and said...

    Forbes put Detroit Mayor Dave Bing on its cover in 2011 for a story with the optimistic headline: “City of Hope.” The premise was that the city had hit rock bottom and was poised for a turnaround. “Right now, it’s all about survival,” Bing told Forbes. Two years later, Detroit’s problems continue to multiply, sadly. It is still dealing with high levels of violent crime and unemployment. Home prices, already at historic lows, plummeted a further 35% during the past three years to a median of $40,000 as net migration out of the city continued. The latest blow was Tuesday’s...

    Youngstown State University will limit the hours of non-union part-time employees to ensure that the university is not required to provide them with health insurance coverage under Obamacare. YSU, a public institution in eastern Ohio, announced to employees earlier this month that it is restricting part-time employees, including adjunct professors and lecturers, to 29 hours a week or less. Under the Affordable Care Act, the university will have to provide health insurance to full-time employees, classified as anyone working 30 hours or more per week. According to an email sent to English department employees, which was obtained by The Huffington...

    YOUNGSTOWN State Rep. Robert F. Hagan of Youngstown, D-60th, is circulating a petition to remove conservative talker Rush Limbaugh from Youngstown radio airwaves. Limbaugh, whose nationally-syndicated show is heard on more than 600 stations, is heard locally on WKBN-AM (570). The radio host has come under fire after calling a George Washington University law student derogatory names after she testified to congressional Democrats in support of national health care policies that would require employers to offer group health insurance that covers birth control. Two radio stations, one in Massachusetts and the other in Hawaii, have already dropped Limbaugh’s show as...

    Well here is what happened to me last night: I went over to Youngstown Ohio around ten to take advantage of the lower gas prices. As I stepped out to insert my card, a car with three black males in their early 20s pulled up in a late model buick regal. Not to be stereotypical, but they were all dressed in typical banger attire, with one exception that really stood out to me: each one wore a black hat that was facing the right way and pulled down low. This struck me as odd. One went into the store and...
