Herald…Where did you go?

Dear Herald,

Where have you gone? Where is the Herald that I once knew? I used to look forward to Tuesdays and Thursdays just because I knew I would have something interesting to read before class. In the three years I have been at WKU I have noticed a big change in how our school paper is put together. Where have all of the “fun” articles gone? Writers like Holan Holm and Daniel Pike brought new prespectives to everyday activities in a very humorous way, while the “What’s Your Story” section introduced us to our peers. Why haven’t these sections of the paper been brought back this semester? Way back in 2001-02 we even had movie reviews and horoscopes. I realize that budget cuts and Student Government are important topics, but they aren’t the only things happening on this campus. If I see Ernie Fletcher’s picture on the front page again I might scream! The Herald is a highly awarded newspaper, let’s show the newest students to Western how it got that way.

Thank you,

Ann Carman
