Do you really feel that it's newsworthy to write about health scores of a Chinese restaurant in Duluth?

Kath, reader interest is strong in restaurant health scores, particularly the ones with unsatisfactory ratings.

I guess I'm not that reader. I read the Oconee Patch for Oconee news, not Duluth. How about focusing on a local restaurant with a great score? Not just posting the score, but make it news worthy. Maybe, just maybe that bit of positive media coverage will help a local eating establishment

Thanks for the input, Kath.

Hey Kath, when's the last time you ate at a restaurant with a "U" rating? Well, here's one you can try. Personally, I appreciate these reports on where not to eat. Why support bacteria infested establishments?
