Let me be as bold as to call this newspaper out and simply ask you, why in the world do you all not carry articles and segments on HHS Football? Not only is this a Huntington based company but also this team is 6-1,#2 in the state, the only loss was to the #1 team in the state by 1 and that's with bad...officiating and missing many starters and yet day in and day out, nothing. This community " myself included" pay for a paper that covers local news 1st. I'm not saying other sports aren't worth talking about because they are but these kids have earned it! I couldn't be more proud of the kids and the coaches up on the hill. Realistically this might be the best HHS has had in the existence of the new school or maybe ever. If you plan on this community to keep buying your paper I suggest you do the right thing and cover more about this great team. Those kids and staff deserve it. They work very hard and it shows to everyone but The herald Dispatch. My uncle and Marshall are good friends, I wonder how he feels about all this mess?! Or is he to blame?! Guess we will find out!

The Herald Dispatch covers local "news"??? Yeah.... right!! They misrepresent alleged "incidences" and plaster that crap all over the place an awful lot. Of course, HD isn't the only one, there's WSAZ, WOWK, WCHS as well. I know people who were drug through the mud in the 'news' and lost everything they had before any court appearances was even made. Then when the initial court hearing found no wrong doing and dismissed all charges, the "news" never ran THAT story. Its pretty screwed up for a 'news' company to misconstrue the facts and slander an innocent individual... especially when the law clearly state "Innocent until proven guilty"

One problem is that the school is in a place that is hidden from the city. I know were the school is but as far as I got was to the guard shack, on the road to the school. I've never seen the football field.

Rigghhtttt, the herald-dispatch never covers HHS. Give me a break. You know how many schools there are to cover in this area from Putnam county to Boyd county to Lawrence county Ohio? HHS isn't the only school around here. Get over yourself.

You name all these other teams...newsflash they aren't 3nd in the state and only loss is to #1 by one. What does it take?! Let me guess they should talk about south point, fairland, spring valley, coal grove, winfield, st. Albans, chesapeake, Lincoln county, chapmanville, ironton, etc.? Yea your right, what was I thinking?! You know you work for The Herald and ashamed..Herald Disgrace strikes again. If you lose Huntington residents buying your paper goes under, I'm surprised it hasn't already. Poor coverage by a poor group. Your killing the rich history of The Herald. Hell you all don't even talk about local kids who make it to the next level. I guess that's not important either huh? Or pro ball? What a joke.

Please, you think I don't know that? I'm not going to argue with someone of your mental caliber. You are obviously a self-indulging "parent" whose kids does no wrong and probably scored a little touchdown and wants front page coverage. Let's talk again when he's at Huntington Junior College and flipping burgers at McDonald's. Slow one, indeed.
