  • Edith,
    The story about the sewer hearing is on our front page today in print and on our home page online.
    Our system automatically selects the items that appear in the most-popular module based on page views. We are in the process of lowering the time limit to seven days. We'll continue to monitor how this works, as we do with all of our online features.

  • I have been watching the first page of the website and under the category of "Most Popular" are four stories about Kyler Johnson. These stories are 8 to 10 days old. The stories never change.

    I fully realize that this is a tragedy that has hit this community in a very significant way, but can I ask why these stories are still posted so prominently? I tried to find the story yesterday on the hearing for the sewer situation today, and I had to really dig for it.

    Is there some reason that this sad event is being kept fresh at the expense of more timely news articles?

    The photo shouldn’t be posted at all. The photo in its graphic nature will only invite extreme elements within Crossroads Area to demand that VICAD to publish abortion photos and other offensive literature. I find it hard to believe that you and others actually thought that out when discussing this.

  • Of course you ran it to sell papers. Your paper would use a 72 point headline for a j-walking story. The notion that a picture of a dead dog will fix up the dog problem is the same kind of scrofulous nonsense that allows papers to publish photos of the dead to increase traffic safety; they don't.

  • The image definitely reinforces the message in the story. Good call. Anything that reduces the incidence of stray dogs roaming the streets is a plus for our community.
