"Am I wrong for finding the negative, lack of respect for the state in which most of us choose to live offensive or am I, too, being a whiner?"
Yes Mrs. Boccia you "being a whiner". Stuck in Ohio has been one of the few good things to come out of the Youngstown are in the last decade. Having moved out of the state a few years ago to pursue career ambitions, I can tell you that anytime I see the Mahoning valley on the news or online somewhere its usually negative, to the point my default response is "Oh, wonder who got killed or royally messed up this time?" The one common exception to this is the Stuck in Ohio crew who are always good press for the area. Be it winning awards or just doing what they do best and showing what can be done in small towns all across America. The only negative press they ever get is from locals; you know, the people who should be supporting them the most.
