Not to do with the announcement of the VP, but for the PV Patch folks. You're overusing your "Breaking News" announcements. This was not something that needed to be announced this way in a local news source. If you want to keep me as a reader, ease up on the Breaking News announcements. As a headline on my email, I get no further details and don't need your emails more than once a day as a regular event. Keep Breaking News for bank robbers on the run or roads or schools closed for power outages/trees down. Leave national news for regular stories so I respect your journalistic skills. A VP announcement is not Breaking News for PV Valley. It's just plain news for the regular email. Thanks.

Lazy K.....u have no idea who I am but I have paid more in in taxes in the first half of this year than you have likely paid in the last 15 years combined. I wish I was joking too. I am one of the 1% and I am disgusted with those who think I am the enemy because I work hard. Lazy K, you only wish you had my life and work ethic. Then again you probably don't care since my tax dollars pay for you to buy your cigarettes and fast food .

Watch out "Lazy K" If you make someone w/ the name of Pablo mad, you'll probably get shanked. Pablo, go fix a mower!

Real funny. I only cut the grass, not fix the mowers.

Never ever funny when folks slam others in such a mean way,Pablo. We are doing exactly what the factions that would destroy our country want us to do...fighting amongst each other...very sad.
