Turtle tale not front-page news


I’m embarrassed for the U-B.

Is your editor on vacation? Toking a little hemp? Living too close to a cellphone tower?

My old J-school taught that the front page was for “hard” news, and “human interest” stories were more properly placed in the supplements.

I personally would have rather seen something with a bit more news value on the front page rather than a missing turtle story, and a line or two at the bottom of the front page of the edition containing the follow-up could have directed interested readers to the conclusion in a different section.

And while I’m griping, does anyone else living in the area around Borleske Stadium feel that the volume of the speakers during the games could be lowered slightly and still be heard in the stadium?
