World renowned boxing promoter files petition with county commissioners.

World renowned boxing promoter Don King is looking to change the name of a street to honor his late wife.

King filed a petition with the Ashtabula County commissioners several months ago, requesting Chub Road, where he has been a long-time resident, be changed to Henrietta King Road, as a permanent tribute to his late wife.

Commissioners forwarded the request to Windsor Township trustees and left it in their hands. There are nine residents living on Chub Road.

Trustees circulated letters to the residents of Chub Road stating it should be a unanimous decision of the residents whether the road name be changed. Six of the nine residents have agreed to the name change, but three have not agreed.

Commissioner Dan Claypool said the request to change the road name should be recommended by the township board of trustees. As soon as the township reaches a consensus and makes a recommendation, Claypool said the county will act on it.

The county will be required to hold a public hearing on the matter. Lisa Hawkins, clerk of the board, said she will run a notice for the public hearing in the newspaper and it will be held 30 days later.

Commissioner Peggy Carlo said it has been her experience that people tend to get upset when the name of their road changes as it affects their address.

I know what you mean. Every time Tyson and I would hang out playing video games and run moonshine he would always say what a tool Don was.


again scranton you are a complete a---hole, if your comment was meant to mock what I said about meeting him when I was 14 yrs old then sir you are completely wrong and I can prove it, not that I will to you but I have pictures of him at ringside with me in the ring and of us shaking hands after that fight, I also met mike tyson and can prove that as well... If you'd like to butt heads with me we can get together lets just stop doing it on here. Im starting to feel like you are dragging me DOWN to your level.... if you havent heard that old saying its because its always being said about you and not to you..... hahahaha jerk

So easy getting under your skin. You call me "a--hole", "jerk", and then want to meet in person to "butt heads". I think you're dragging ME down. And I think you have some anger issues. Name calling and threatening people on a message board is no way to go thru life. I'm offended. "hahahaha"

You're pretty much my favorite person on these message boards and my feelings are hurt that you have such a negative opinion of me.
