Letter to the editor: Not adequate coverage on Memorial Day

Tuesday, June 3, 2014 - 12:01 am

My reference is to the News edition Monday, May 26, Memorial Day.

The front page had very little to do with honoring those who have fought and died for our freedom! A small column about the VA hospitals and another very small AP story of honor. Even these relevant stories are continued on pages 6A and 7A.

I strongly object to relegating our great military and heroes of freedom to the back pages of your paper. You and your suspect editors have chosen to put news about a killer, a festival and a tribute to the country of Burma on the front page.

My belief is that you made a mistake and put Page 1A on the front instead of Page10A, which is a full-page ad honoring our veterans. What can possibly be your excuse for trashing our heroes on Memorial Day!
