The other day I was in a local mini-mart and was miffed that they didn't sell cans of cranberry sauce.


"Why don't they have a suggestion box?" I thought to myself as I walked away empty-handed.


Then it occurred to me that I should look myself in the mirror and ask the very same question: Why doesn't the Hesperia Star have a suggestion box? That's when I decided it was time to encourage constructive criticism from our readers.


So, we want to know what you think about our newspaper. What articles do you especially enjoy reading? Which ones do you think miss the mark? Most importantly, however, what else would you like to see in the paper?


What you want to read is important to us. The news department's mission is to give you pertinent, readable news about Hesperia. But within those guidelines are ample latitude and discretion. Although certainly not everyone will be happy, getting a better sense of what readers want certainly can't hurt.


Please send your suggestions to Editor, 17045 Main St., Hesperia, CA 92345 or email them to editor@hesperiastar.com.
