Wow, Findlay really needs to do something drastic to stop their flooding. Every other year that downtown is under water, its gotta be killing the businesses.

Even a biblical-sized bath to the city of Cincinnati won't remove the filth and the stench.

What a joke, I love how the Dogpatch has to supplement it's paper with stories from the big boy cities in Ohio. I guess that's what you have to do when you live in a cowtown where every day is a sloooooooow news day, truly pathetic.......

Too bad Cowlumbus doesen't have a river that could flood and wash it away. Now that would be alot of floating double-wides......

Does Porkopolis have a newspaper? Or should I search for results using "Covington KY"?
Thanks for asking

Perhaps the answer to your question is best summed up in this passage from page 357 of, ironically enough, The Insiders' Guide to Cincinnati:

"Generally speaking, avid fans of statehouse news turn to the daily that's published in the state capital, the Columbus Dispatch. Other large newspapers that make it their business to cover the state are the Cleveland Plain-Dealer and the Akron Beacon Journal."

From this, it could be inferred that no papers in Cincinnati "make it their business" to inform readers of what goes on elsewhere around Ohio. Considering much of the city believes itself to be a northern outpost of Kentucky, this is hardly surprising.

Just read the Cowlumbus Dogpatch, it posts all the Cincinnati stories. How's it feel to read more Cincy and Cleveland stories in your pathetic rag than stories about your own town? I'd be ashamed and embarrassed if I lived in that podunk trailer park called Cowlumbus.

You should never "infer" anything since it is strictly your opinion. No one cares about the opinions of trailer trash. I also find it amusing that the Cleveland paper has more/better Buckeye coverage than their own hometown paper, how embarrassing. Oh and the Enquirer and the Post both cover events happening in Ohio just not pathetic stories out of columbus about cows breaking loose and running free through the streets.

I've figured out why you are here. The Enquirer is mired in the last century and has no connection to Topix. You have to come here to comment at all.

Just a thought but after leaving cbus for the Queen City I now know why Cincy is better and may not need to report on their news from around here because there really isnt much to report on. We've been pretty content and happy down here. In cbus we were all miserable becuase they just could never get their shit together up ther hence the horrific school systems, fraud, and high crime rates up there compared to the greater whole of Cincinnati. Just saying from my personal experience. Maybe you should try something before you knock it. Since I know most people from cbus dont get out much.

And Reynoldsburg sorry but your city has gone to pot over the last 10 years becuase of thugs like you!

And I find it amusing that the Dayton Daily News has long provided better coverage of the Reds than any media outlet in Cincinnati.

Since you raise the topic, assuming the Enquirer and Post do in fact include statewide stories, how is that different from the Dispatch doing so? I'll save you the trouble: it's not. Or, it wouldn't be if that were true, which it's not. A Cincinnati-based publication says as much. No need to infer.

You are so right about the DDN and their reporting on the Reds. There is none better than Hal McCoy.

See Cowtowners, straight from one of your former citizens, you can't argue with someone who lived there and has made their life better by getting the hell out. I agree, cowtowners should get out from underneath that bubble covering the trailer park. You might just learn something.

First and foremost this claim is completely untrue, I agree Hal does a great job but it's Dayton, they live and die all things Cincinnati. Columbus is alot like Dayton, always wishing they could be the big boy city but never will.The inferiority complex that you exude is honestly very sad and pathetic.

Trailer trash makes me laugh, hahahahahahahahaha, you go cowtown. Oh and maybe you can answer me one question. What real city has to hire a marketing company to help them with their non-existant image? I say columbus definitely has an image........ Ohio's Cowtown. I mean seriously is there a city with any less character, columbus is as vanilla as they come, i guess if you like strip malls, chain restaurants, box stores, and queer softball tourneys then you'll love cowlumbus ahia!

Is anyone even reading his posts? I know I'm not. He has nothing to say that I want to read. I love our town, our people and our values. Could it be better? Yes, of course, but that's as true anywhere else as it is here. The only think I like about Cincinnati is the Reds, and I've loved them for many, many years.

One of my former Cowtown neighbors suggests high crime rates...higher than Cincinnati? Really? I am very interested to learn the source of that particular statistic as what I find seems to indicate otherwise, though both have some very safe neighborhoods as well. It depends on what, and how, you measure. School districts are pretty much a wash, there are excellent, good, bad and ugly in both parts of the state. Fraud? If that reference is to government I think you'll find that in generous quantities anywhere.

For my part I am happy that Just a thought is happy in Cincinnati and wish him/her well.
