Thumbs up for Nathan Schwartz, 20, of Clyde (pop. 6,064), who won $50,000 as the text-messaging champ in the 2008 LG National Texting Competition. In 60 seconds on his cell phone, he correctly typed the phrase, “Does everybody here know the alphabet? Let’s text. Here it goes . . . AbcDeFghiJKlmNoPQrStuvWXy & Z! Now I know my A-B-C’s, next time won’t you text with me?” to beat 15,000 competitors.
