Unhappy The Newspaper Articles

The end of August is when vacationers come to Marble Falls. Was disappointed when the August 2-5 newspaper front pages news was: 1) Marble Falls Mugging Victim Dies, 2) Shooter at Child's Party Gets 18 Years, 3) 3rd Suspect In Shootout Nabbed. Doesn't sound like Marble Falls is a very friendly place

When you know of a "good news" happening or upcoming event, or just something of interest, call the paper and talk to a reporter. These reporters are not out there "on the beat" all day every day.

Reapp...you're right.
Webmaster....I didn't mean the news on the forum.
Nomos....It wasn't that there isn't "good news", interest, happenings, etc. It is just the placement of the news. That particular day, everything you could see on the folded paper was that a mugging victim died, shooting at child's party and a suspect in a shootout. Every store I walked in that day it was right there. I just felt like I was back in Dallas.
I was just venting that day Just curious if anyone else felt the same. Have a great, safe day.

I noticed that too. I didn't notice the "timing" of visitors in the area with the articles. But it's all about money and sensationalism sells newspapers so that's what they put on the front page.
