Let's face the music. The Steamboat Pilot & Today has never been the most reliable newspaper and often has less than stellar news.
Many have said the same and quite frankly, the Pilot & Today is losing its integrity and lowly making the transformation to a poor supermarket tabloid. I could easily compare quite a few of your recent stories to the stories in the English tabloid The Sun or the well-known American tabloid the National Enquirer.
This melee between the newspaper and John DeVincentis has gone quite far enough. The fact is in excess of the event. Let the man go on with his life and serve his duty as an effective school board member.
Just so I may shed the heavy coat of anger I have been wearing for the past two weeks over this particular issue, I just would like to share this: Dr. D was an exceptional educator who has paid his dues from the extreme anger of those close to and around him. Many hearts are aching over this very issue, so Scott Stanford, stop the nonsense before you lose all credibility.
