lmao! sorry...i saw those, but alot on Topix lately has involved his murder...i jumped to conclusions...i honestly stopped reading the PDT a long time ago, not bec of it's lack of real news and terrible, hillbilly editorials, but bec as a whole it really is a pathetic paper....i mean, people get on here and jump others for grammar mistakes or spelling mistakes, but to see it in a local newspaper put together by people who are SUPPOSED to be intelligent writers and to see that they don't even know the difference between "there", "their", and "they're", it's really embarrassing and disturbing....to see that this lack of professionalism has moved into the cyber side of it, is not surprising.

I read in Columbus Dispatch, that New Boston Community scores were so low, they lost their sponsors. They had to get them from up North. Why did the PDT not include this in their paper. They pick and choose. Has anyone else heard this?
Wake up America(I mean PDT) and print some real news from our area.

The paper is a reflection of the type of intelligence this community produces and the lack of draw the area has. Who would want to work at a place like this if they had a choice of going somewhere else? The people working at the paper are your neighbors and products of your high schools and your college. What's that say about you in general?

Perhaps an analogy is in order. If you are picking up the Portsmouth Daily Disaster and are expecting a product like the Columbus Dispatch, then you will probably find yourself stunned when you take a bite of your Big Mac at McDonald's and find that it is, in fact, not prime rib.

Who are you to judge all of scioto county? Of course we have our bad apples but I happen to know many intelligent people in our area. I have served my time in the military and finished my bachelors while trying my best to help out the community. Misguided persons like yourself only bring down people to make your little pud get hard. I hope you sleep well in your twin bed while trying our damnedest to bring down a good community with drug problems. I can only hope your children are as "high class" as you!

I am as rightfully able to pass judgment on Scioto County as the next person living here. By the way, thank you for your service and congratulations on your completion of higher education.

As far as getting my pud hard, I'll leave that to your wife tonight.

The accusation of me being "high class" is an embodiment of what you think of yourself and your peers in this area. If I was able, I wouldn't live here but alas, I can't. That makes me no better than any other person living in Scioto County. The difference is my ability to grasp just how destitute this place is, myself included.

Maybe the day will come when this corner of Appalachia finds a way to elevate itself, but until then, expect no more than the lowest common denominator.

Right on. If I wanted titillating news coverage I think I'd look elsewhere than the PDT. We have no local TV stations or even a legit competitor in news. Drug bust, prostitution, pill mill, robbery. Beat goes on in Portsmouth

New Boston is not a community school. It is a public school. East is the community school with sponsors.
