Might be the best thing to happen in Scioto County in a long time. Some times new leadership is needed to seek different or new opportunities. The old board has been in control for many years now and they got some stuff done for New Boston and a couple of local companies. Now it's time to move on to something new.

Change isn't easy for some folks, though, and I predict a bit of screaming and name calling from some.

Why would someone get so upset and resign? Shouldn't we all be in this for the betterment of Scioto County? I say to make some changes and put people in there who are willing to work with the city as well. Portsmouth is in Scioto County, right? And thank you Chris Smith and all of the Health Coalition for your fine work! Scioto County appreciates you!

I think Doug Coleman is a idiot and he sounds stupid by his quotes in the news paper. If this not true about Doug being a chicken shit then why does he not speak out? The guy said they never attended a meeting. The guy said Doug had no balls. They said they did a bunch for they did a bunch for Scioto county. I really do not care one way or another but Doug should defend himself or grow some balls. Just don't take it in the mouth. Debate is good so debate DOUG!!!

I was thinking why the commissioners did not come back and say this was not true also. I voted republican and wondered why Mike and Doug take this. Speak out and prove you have some balls. Do not take this crap in the paper. I hope to God they been to a sopa meeting to make a statement like that.

Mick Sturgill is a good person. Why did Doug run his mouth on him? Doug should have went to him and not the newspaper. Doug is trying to turn the county into the city drama. He is a nut it seems. Boone was a good man and took care of his little brother but not no more.
