Where are the local editorials? Doesn't the editor have any comments about what's going on in the Brookings-Harbor area?

19th Century American journalist Wilbur Storey gained notoriety for his opinion, "It is a newspaper's duty to print the news and raise hell."

I renewed my subscription to The Pilot a few weeks ago and have been reading it with interest. It's much better than it was when Coastal Media first acquired it from Western Communications Inc., but I'm disappointed with the lack of local editorials.

The letters to the editor are a feature that allows readers to share their opinions, but what does the staff have to say?

Last week's opinion piece about newspaper headlines was interesting, but it wasn't local. You frequently publish pieces from Writers on the Range, but they aren't local either.

I realize the news/editorial staff is new to this region and this community, but please don't be afraid to have an opinion about what you see and hear going on. Please follow Wilbur Storey's advice. It's bound to stimulate discussion in the community, and you can be assured it would prompt more letters to the editor.
