I take issue with the reporting that it was Daub,Clausing and Price that cost us the "Ashland Mall". I worked downtown at the time of this controversy and it was the "Retail Merchants Association" that didn't want the "Mall". They were scared to death that it would put them out of business. I just want the "truth" to be told. I do
not know any of these 3 councilmen nor have I ever spoken to them. My employer was a member of the Retail Merchants association and told me this over 25 yrs ago,I was 20yrs old and never dreamed it would be the death of Portsmouth.

This mall would not have been the death of Portsmouth. That is what Walmart and Shawnee State are for.

I believe they call themselves the Martings Foundation now. They were afraid the MALL would have a Lazarus, and they would give Martings a run for their money. FYI, Walmart in NOT in Portsmouth!

Just for anyones information that site is run by the loser Mayor Kalb and his family who are out to spread spite and hate to anyone that does not agree with them. This is part of the reason he lost his bid for re election for mayor using these tactics and this hate web site that his wife so proudly proclaims to be the Saviour of Portsmouth.
Wait till it comes out that Kalb put Portsmouth into bankruptcy will his wife write about that on her underground web site? These are some sick people.
The so called mall was nothing more than a ploy for Shawnee State & Neal Hatcher to take over that property for dorms what a coincidence thats where they are built today the same place the mall was supposed to be built, can you put 2 and 2 together?

I will try to make this easier for you to understand. You are probably one of the elected officials for Scioto County which would explain your ignorance. Walmart, which is in the 45662 zipcode(which is Portsmouth), and Shawnee State are doing nothing for this community. People will talk about how many jobs Walmart provides and all the commerce it brings to the area. First, ask the Walmart employee how much they like working just enough hours to not qualify for health benefits. Then go through the parking lot and see how many license plates are not from Ohio and Kentucky. Shawnee State has done nothing but destroy downtown Portsmouth by taking houses to build dorms and bring in more drugs. Of course area people attend Shawnee, but what do they do when they graduate? They move the hell away from this bullshit town where it is easier to get a burger or a prostitute than it is to get a reliable doctor. Good luck current government here in Portsmouth. If Neal Hatcher doesn't back you, you have no hope. He is the one that really runs this town.

Oh That makes more since. I think you are right on half of it. Shawnee has nothing to do the drugs in this town. I think lazy police(and politions) is the problem. Who has brought all in the Mexicans? I know the Grafs have brought alot of them.

"The Proper Way to Destroy a Town". I believe that is the name of it lol. This town is a joke due to the Upper Clique. Kalb, Hatcher, Mohr, Horner, Donini, The Daily Times, Steve Hayes, Frank Lewis, etc. Down to the Portsmouth we all used to love. Up with the Upper Clique.

I just had a feeling that Alison Kalb the second or third wife of the loser mayor kalb was the writer on that site. I could tell by all the hatred it spits out she is full of it after hearing all her terror stories how she was willingly raped by a guy she chased for months while working at Krogers and when he dumped her she was out for revenge and claimed it was rape.lol.maybe she'll print about it on her underground

mullins13 I did not mean that the "mall" would be the death of Portsmouth. I meant the Retail Merchants Associations decision to fight to keep it from happening would be the death of Portsmouth. Sorry for the confusion. Also, if Allison kalb is writing for that website then I think she is able to go to work and get off of disability, which I recall she said she was on in an article in the PDT some years back.

It's just another scam for another income how do you think they were able to buy rental property? Not on his checkout money alone but that monthly extra 1900 helps out and let's not forget the big settlement money from Kroger's.
I've seen her do the work of two people at mound park

ok people it was a scam to get the land for the college dorms it never was going to happen no matter what

those guys they blame were out of office so why didn't they go ahead with the mall because it was a scam plain and simple to big for a small mind to understand
that old man that ran the news paper at the time had a lot to do with it he knew the truth but took it to the grave with him

O K folks your not even talking about the same people or malls. The one in
Ashland was built years later by a completely different developer and he never had any intentions of building in Portsmouth. when you say they went to Ashland or Huntington your all wrong these were build by local private people and not one of these ever were going to locate in your town. You can contact them yourself if you don't believe me. The whole mall thing was dreamed up to save a city managers (Feldman) job at the time and it worked, he kept his job for several more years but he never mentioned the mall again ! how funny don't you think he kept his job but NO MALL like he promised if he got to stayed
another conn job pulled on the people of Portsmouth like the saying goes they will fall for anything
