Review of Herald

I like the balance of local and national news, the quick crossword and cryptoquip. Would like to see a better balance of conservative editorials along with the liberal view that generally appears.
I came from the Ohio town where the Hoiles family grew up. I remember Frank and his brother Arthur well. They would be disappointed in the direction the newspapers they founded have ended up.

Best Paper in the Valley

The Herald has always been the best read among Valley newspapers. Recently the Herald seems to over concentrate on feel good page one stories. Inside seems to be filled with McAllen and Harlingen stories many of which have been written for other readers. For example the Herald reported a story on Mexican voters and the deadline to register to vote. The story said the only place to register was the Mexican Counsulate in if Brownsville, as in Brownsville Herald, doesn’t have a Mexican Counsulate. It’s certainly OK to pickup a story from another paper but an editor should edit the story so it’s at least correct for the paper in which it’s published.
