Print Only The Happy News
Each week, I receive The Wave newspaper, and each week I ask myself, “Why is it that the first thing I see is a glaring headline on the front cover of some sort of violent crime or morbid accident photo that has occurred during the past week??
How is it that the stomping murder of a good samaritan THAT TOOK PLACE IN THE BRONX is put before a beautiful photo of our boardwalk, which truly represents our proud community?
Whenever I visit somewhere, I always grab the local paper ... if someone visited here and read the paper, why would they ever want to think of raising their children here if the first thing they see is a horrendous headline? Why not headline only “feel good” type articles going on in the peninsula?
The accurate representation of 3/4 of what Rockaway is all about should be highlighted, not 73 pages into the paper. (e.g.: the young Roxbury girl who placed second in the entire country for girls U9 for SKIING!). Please try this; I am sure sales will remain the same, if not improve greatly. Screaming headlines of crimes that happen in the Bronx have no place in our local paper.
