I would like to post a complaint about this article. As a student at Stewartville High School, I was utterly shocked to see the news publicizing this event. This is not something that should be publicized. These people made a mistake as I'm sure they well know, and as you have made our community look bad, I take offense to that. Not only did you make Stewartville High School look bad, you made your news crew look tacky. Showing EVERY negative aspect of a community is far from necessary. Were you aware that Stewartville High School also has many positive aspects that you have never seemed to publicize? Maybe next time you're looking for a news event, look for something positive. All the negative things in the news are sometimes what causes things such as this 'drug concern' to happen.

They LIKE stoking the drug war fires, they do. The paper enjoys promoting and advocating for a drug war and stories like this serve that purpose. My guess is it's run primarily by a small town, conservative bent. You know the folks who love the drug wars against our own people. They like this war. They are FOR this war, can't you tell?

Have you ever watched the news? I'm sure every story that is written and told on there is someone 'who made a mistake and has learned from it' doesn't mean it's not news. If someone is charged with a felony for selling drugs at that high school then the fact is they were selling drugs at THAT HIGH SCHOOL. Whether you think it looks good or bad for your high school is beside the point, that's where it happened... If your name isn't involved then you shouldn't have to worry about looking bad. Yeah it sucks that someone did that there, but that's life.
