A good number of sporting events — the Super Bowl, Daytona 500, The Masters, Indy 500 —- occur on Sunday. It’s not news to read about the results the following Wednesday.

What’s far worse? When someone in the community passes away on the weekend, as my wife did, most people don’t receive notification until the obituaries are published in the Wednesday paper.

As a former employee of The Star, dating back to the early 1960s, and a loyal subscriber ever since, I will not renew my subscription when it expires unless the Tuesday edition returns.
