Negative stories don’t belong on front page during the holidays

Horse hanging death - Jalupae - should not be front page news

It is less than one week until Christmas day. At this time of year we want to reach out and wish people the very best for Christmas and a very happy new year. All in all we try to make this a joyous time of year.

I find the placing of the article concerning the cruelty to a horse and giving the two morons who inflicted this cruelty the front page a poor choice. It is news we need to hear. However, put it off somewhere in the mid section of the paper.  I enjoy the Peninsula News Review and look forward to reading about the Peninsula. Cheer us up over the next week. This is the moment to cover the front page with all the wonderful things happening over the week before Christmas. By the way, I love horses, reindeer and Christmas.

Here’s to a wonderful Christmas and a happy new year.
