The front page “heading” was classy — succinct history, mountains and valley portrayed, the date and issue number easy to see. The new front page looks like the “Sun” newspapers — the disc is barely readable and insignificant. I can adjust to the inside of the “new” format but not the front page.
Associate Editor’s note: The Valley Echo is open to constructive criticism on the new design and any aspect of the newspaper. In response to the complaint that the new disc is too small, we have made a slight change to the cover to allow for a larger disc, date and issue number. The most positive characteristic of our new front cover, which many have expressed, is that the newspaper fold does not obstruct the front page photo, unlike the previous design where the front page image was hidden under the fold in the newsstands. Thank you for the feedback — it is always welcome!
