Bought a paper today and someone please tell me how in the world can a person enjoy the latest sports in Lincoln County when Duane Estep talks about Marshall, Logan High, and Dallas. He briefly mentioned the Panthers. Not much of a sports page in my opinion. Surely the folks at the Journal can do better than this. No pictures, no info on youth football, no mentioning the junior high teams, no soccer results, and no idea on how to put a sports page together. I will buy a few more papers, but if this crap continues I will quit buying. Surely the staff can find some interesting sports stories to share with the folks that buy this paper to read the sports page. This week Sports Beat was the worst ever.
yeah well

Make sure you buy the Lincoln Journal instead of the Lincoln Sentinal. Journal covers all that you mentioned. Actually packed full of pics and stories last week.

No actually, only certain teams are mentioned. You can't make it to every game that's going on all weekend, that's why we have a sports section, to read what happened in sports ALL OVER THE COUNTY!!! And the only little league that is ever mentioned is Duval!!(And everyone knows, yeah they won, they do everything necessary to win including bending and breaking rules!!!) Keep up Lincoln Journal, it's your job!!!

All I know is that the last sports section was terrible. A very small writeup on Dallas, WVU, and MU. Maybe Estep needs replaced. Hire Ron Gregory back.

When Gregory left the Sports Section disappeared. Ron was controversial, but his writings were always interesting. Mr. Estep seems afraid to write anything at all. Maybe the Journal needs to hire someone who is not afraid to say what is on their mind. A good sports story doesnt have to be about football. Player of the Week, Midget League, Soccer Stats, Squirrel Season, Archery, Wrestling Season, Fishing, Junior High Sports, upcoming Deer Season, and Cheerleading Stories would at least make the Sports Section interesting.

Just try to do a better job. No one wants to buy your paper if you can read the sports section in five minutes or less. Pictures would not hurt. Good sports section readings should make the Lincoln Journal a more interesting paper.

I thought the Lincoln Journal covered Lincoln County Sports like "Dew". Remember that old saying . If the writers can concentrate on the county a little bit more instead of Pro Football things could change. I will not buy papers if I cannot read some interesting things.
yeah well

I repeat: Coach Estep`s article is only in the Lincoln Sentential, not the Lincoln Journal. The Lincoln Journal covers Lincoln County sports from throughout. Make sure you get the box that has the Lincoln Journal. Ryan Prichard and Jimmy Walls covers the Lincoln County sports.
