Lethbridge Newspapers

What this city really needs is another newspaper.
It has a daily and a weekly, and both are provided by the same company. That isn’t too much of a bad thing, but the Herald has a poor track record for on-time delivery and providing timely international news.
The problem though is if one wants to leave the Herald, one’s choices are to get more international news and next to no local news, or get no newspaper at all.
Besides, the Herald seems to have any lack of a visual style guide. Their articles (particularly the headlines) are all sorts of font faces and sizes.
I wish there was a newspaper (even if it were a weekly) that provided good local news and was nice to look at.
Ted Stilson, et al, had the right idea when they started the precursor to the Lethbridge Sun Times years ago. I wish someone else would come along and start a newspaper. If I had the resources, I’d be half tempted to do it myself.
