News-Sentinel always overlooks McNair athletes

Why is your paper biased on its reporting of school sports and events? Your reporters need to pull up the listing of all Lodi Unified high schools and give equal reporting of all students and team successes, in particular McNair High School, home of the Eagles. These kids get overlooked time and time again.

A case in point: area team wrestlers. There was mention of Jim Wilson, a McNair wrestler, because he is a "Lodi resident," but no mention of his teammate, Malique Micenheimer, at the Masters.

Also, the McNair boys and girls varsity basketball teams went to playoffs. The boys made it to the second round before losing a close one. Let's not forget to mention the lack of support during football and soccer.

Its hard enough being the new school with you supporting bias against a Lodi Unified school, Ronald E. McNair High School. Just because Lodi High has those "fanatics" is no reason to overshadow other schools.

Fly, Eagles, fly! Team mom has your back.

Note from Scott Howell, sports editor: Despite being in the Lodi Unified School District, McNair and Bear Creek high schools are not in the Lodi News-Sentinel coverage area. This decision is driven by subscribership. The News-Sentinel does, however, occasionally highlight area athletes who attend schools outside of its coverage area, as was the case with Jim Wilson.

    As I understand it Tina, years ago the LUSD set its boundaries to include what was once then farmland outside the city limits of Stockton. The city limits have expanded, and the land has now been developed. As I understood it, the LUSD initially collected property taxes, but very few students. Greed caused those in charge to be a little short sighted.

    Someone remind me why a school in Stockton is part of Lodi Unified School District?

    Also Jerome, when did private business boundaries begin to be defined by county lines?

    That's simple Jerome. Galt does not have a daily paper. The LNS fills that niche. There are actually delivery routes in Galt. Galt subscribers buy a lot of papers.

    The subscription area for LNS runs from Eight Mile Rd to Twin Cities Rd, Galt is included in that area. LNS is Galt's local paper.
    You don't hear of Lodi and Tokay athletes complaining about not receiving coverage in the Stockton Record, this is the same thing.

    Ok, but why all the news coverage for Galt in the Lodi News-Sentinel? They're not even in the same county as Lodi.

    Want to see your name in the Lodi paper? Play at a high school in Lodi, simple as that.

    Why would anyone think that the LUSD and the LNS are connected? McNair and Bear Creek are Stockton schools, and should be covered by The Record. Their hometown paper.
