I like the balance of local and national news, the quick crossword and cryptoquip. Would like to see a better balance of conservative editorials along with the liberal view that generally appears. I came from the Ohio town where the Hoiles family grew up. I remember Frank and his brother Arthur well. They would be disappointed in the direction the newspapers they founded have ended up.

The Herald has always been the best read among Valley newspapers. Recently the Herald seems to over concentrate on feel good page one stories. Inside seems to be filled with McAllen and Harlingen stories many of which have been written for other readers. For example the Herald reported a story on Mexican voters and the deadline to register to vote. The story said the only place to register was the Mexican Counsulate in McAllen...as if Brownsville, as in Brownsville Herald, doesn’t have a Mexican Counsulate. It’s certainly OK to pickup a story from another paper but an editor should edit the story so it’s at least correct for the paper in which it’s published.
The Brownsville Herald is the leading source of news and information for the southern Cameron County communities of Brownsville, Los Fresnos and Port Isabel. The Herald is the Rio Grande Valley's longest serving daily newspaper - being established in 1892 - and today offers extensive content in both its print and digital products. The Herald, and its sister daily in Spanish, El Nuevo Heraldo, were each named in 2013 as the newspapers of the year by the Texas Associated Press Managing Editors association. Our newspapers and websites reflect the diversity and unique culture of our South Texas communities in serving our readers and customers with the best products and services in English and Spanish.
