Nor will the good news ever make it to this rag MsSmith. It's like Warren City Schools. If most that read this rag seen what really goes on at Harding, they would be ashamed of most of what they say. The uninformed like being uninformed. It allows them to continue to make ridiculous comments that don't even make sense, or they have any bases in fact.

Let's face the facts news sources love printing bad news. There are people who like to read about the bad things that happen in Warren. I will give you a prime example of this we had a student who killed himself by huffing gas and that made the paper but what did not make the paper was it was the first year of the robotics team competition and we made the nationals and went to Orlando and we won. I have contacted the tribune about the good things I know that are going on that I find out on Facebook but it never makes the paper in the community news part.

And it is a shame people have to turn to alernate sources, like Facebook or community newspapers, to get their events to the public. Why is that?

I traveled home for Woofstock 2013 and will return for 2014, but, I have to say I was extremely disappointed in the coverage of this monumental event. I guess it takes something bad to happen to get any press in Warren these days!

People in this area have had to "settle" for a media source that not only reflects ultra conservatism, but lately just does not reflect local news. B section Saturday had reports from Lucas, Columbus, Marion, Stockholm, Washington, Evans/Colorado, Cleveland....stuff called fillers. Nothing happening here in Warren?

Another concern I have is that events happen, like WOOF, craft shows (Champion on Saturday on Mahoning Avenue), church events, that are not advertised. Then we see a picture of it after it is over. I don't know if that is the event coordinator's fault or the Tribune's. People would like to support community events and we don't even know about them.

I agree that some good news goes a long way toward improving everyone's point of view on anything. I am always so moved and touched by good news stories; and so grateful to read anything uplifting in the Trib. I always make a supportive comment for any good news story.

I don't Facebook so I didn't know about this event, but would have definitely considered going, even though I have already returned to the area after 25 years away.
