I understand what you're saying, but doesn't BDT always give Va news? Seems like enough focus isn't put on Mercer Co. It always seems like that to me.

Unless it's good news, I'm glad they don't mention McDowell County.

its been that way for the last few years... they even started naming Beckley first in the commercials. yet, didnt the station get its start in Bluefield?
if you want local news watch WDBJ7 or 59News.. either one beats WVVA

59 news online is the best source of news for our area, but I agree with Abe, I rather not hear it if it isnt good news.

I get sick of them talking about Virginia Tech in sports. Back in the day, they mentioned WVU only. Just like the BDT....VT only for some reason.

I have noticed with reading BDT online that very little focus is put on McDowell. The channel and the paper are supposed to represent the region and perhaps they depend on the Welch Daily to do that now?

I agree 100%... My family lives away from here and when I watch the "state news" at 530, there is always something bad going on in McDowell, like murders and drugs. I would rather not hear anything at all, unless it is something good for the county. But, you know, the only good thing to happen to McDowell is the ATV trails. I think some many negative things happen in McDowell that is hard for the news to say anything good.

There will be even more focus put on VT because of that massacre. Did you know that the Yanks are going to play an exhibition game there next year? VT will forever remain in the spotlight.

I have not seen that paper in years, but hell it sucked even in the 80's when I read it.

Think about it. Isn't anything as good as the money you have? If the Welch Newspaper could make the money they did in the 80's then it would be better but it isn't.

Contact Sheriff D. Mitchell and members of the county commission and have them explain why the McDowell County SD is so far behind other law enforcement agencies in the field of technology.
