D-Day story needed top billing

Success - Article sent! close

A major demerit to the person or persons at the Daily Herald responsible for the arrangement of the articles on your front page. In the June 7 edition, the lead article is a fundraising pitch for the Wheeling High School jazz band in support of their upcoming trip to Europe. Pushed to second place by that "feature" article is an article honoring the veterans who were part of the D-Day invasion of Europe.

As a veteran, I'm very disappointed in the placement of those articles. To compound the matter, the continuation of the fundraising story is on page 4. The continuation of the D-Day story does not appear until page 8. Priorities, ladies and gentlemen, please.
