Sorry Gladys, I see nothing wrong with what Plamena did in this article. At least she acknowledged where the info came from. So many times reporters don't give credit were credit is do. Overall The Patch does an excellent job and I enjoy reading it everyday. Keep up the good work.

Excuse me Mike...but I don't appreciate be called an idiot, and I was taking Glady's to task for her comment. Please go crawl back under the rock you came out from under. I don't need grammer or spelling lessons from you, I'm sorry if I'm not as perfect as you. If this wasn't a family paper my language would be harsher.

"I was taking Glady's to task for..." What the HELL are you trying to say, I can't even understand you. Go back to school or sue the one you went to for giving you a diploma.
