The News Herald has turned into the National Enquirer with their irresponsible, inaccurate and one-sided reporting. They should stick to community news and events, not print stories that are biased. About the only thing the paper is good for now is lining the birdcage. And they brag they have the largest circulation of any community newspaper, yet it's a free paper!

I agree with the negative remarks. I was born and raised in Donelson, I know tons about the history of this beautiful town but I didnt learn it from the Herald. The payer has gone down. Most of it seems to be advertising with very little articles. I like the lady who rocks the politics section. She is on the money. Besides that, we need more. Hop over to my hubbys hometown paper in Gutternberg Iowa, the Guttenberg Press. We pay 36.00 a year to get it delivered. I LOVE IT. It's rocks. It's a thick paper with on this day in history from the 1800's and up, the crime reported that week and a description of the complete crime, the local happenings and politics and a section of Letter to the press from readers like us. I get a kick out of them. Gutternberg is a small town on the MISSISSIPPI River in Iowa, very small. They have no large stores. The closest walmart is 45min away but their paper is better than ours? What is going on? We need a new owner and editor or they need to rethink the paper. However, I am a nostolgic creature by habit and I have to admit, I love getting the herald in my driveway.

I always enjoyed this paper. It is also useful for local service technicians and yard sales. I read it every week. It is supposed to be delivered free to donelson and hermitage, but not so. Many months ago, delivery was discontinued to our street, Haven Crest. It is still being deliverd to Bonnafair which is right next to our street. I am very disappointed. I even tried to pay to have it sent, but no luck there either. It is being left somewhere over on OH Blvd at a store I never could locate. If it could be placed somewhere convenient in our area, such as the kroger on OH Blvd I would be able to get it. The library is not convenient, and I do not think it is even still open on Fridays. Thanks.

Every community needs it's own news paper, but for the community to support it, it has to be newsworthy! If it doesn't give the community what it wants to read about, then it will not succeed. This can be done online if funds are tight or in newsprint. I tried this morning to find a place to let the area residents know about our CSA program at our farm (Community Supported Agriculture) and there was no place to enter the article. We deliver into the area served by the News Herald every week, bringing beautiful vegetables, berries and even fresh baked breads, direct from the farm! Do try to at least have a place where readers can submit timely information that some of the community would find interesting. Judy McGary http://www.doerunfarm.com

I've been picking up and reading the Herald for about a year now. They usually have a few interesting stories and some good community information. I do happen to agree in part to the person who wrote the past entry, that maybe some more articles could be written, or my idea would be for there to be a write-in section or a Q&A forum for those in the area, or new to the area, about our community. You can't find EVERYTHING online. Also, maybe a little area history, or something like, this day in history or this week in history, here in Donelson/Hermitage area, of things that happend, or important events, that directly affected our community. It definitely has room for improvement and can be more, we all can.
I've seen alot of these papers just sitting in driveways, i'm sure many throw them out, and i've seen many smashed and coming apart on the backroads of our neighborhoods, so I think a new look is in order, and let's all get back to reading more, and less T.V. and internet, and let's get a peek at what more is going on in our communities and get involved, i'm speaking to myself too !

The News Herald used to be a wonderful community paper, so much more than the average little neighborhood "rag" that covered weddings and garden parties. From the mid 80s 'til the mid 90s, this was a REAL newspaper that had a REAL journalist who researched and reported REAL newsworthy articles. I was a student at McGavock High then and my English teacher required the class to read the Herald every week to learn how to correctly write news stories. My classmates and I enjoyed this assignment because the articles were always very interesting and sometimes even funny. But now, I am sad to say, there is nothing interesting or funny about The News Herald. All of the articles seem to come from some outside source and when I have tried to offer a story idea and attempted to contact the owner who is also the editor, he never returned my call. No matter what time or day I have called, he was never there and the girl who answered the phone refused to tell me when I could expect to hear back from him. I don't think this makes for very good public relations with a business that claims to be representative of and focused on our neighborhood!

Usually my family doesn't even bother to open the paper; I pick it up and throw it into the recycling bin or tear it into little pieces to line the cat's litter box. Once in awhile I wad it up to clean the windshield of my car. What I definitely DO NOT DO is read it because there is nothing worth reading. EVER! If a crime happens in the area, it's old news by the time this weekly paper comes out. If a church or club has an event scheduled - and I know this from personal experience - the owner refuses to cover it or provide any publicity unless an ad is bought and paid for - even if the event is for a charity!!

Many people in the Donelson-Hermitage area have come to loathe The News Herald and are simply embarrassed by it. They just don't want to be bothered with calling to make sure their address is removed from the delivery list. I belong with that group, plus I have this little, tiny hope that just maybe the owner will get a wake up call and see what a disaster he has let The News Herald become. If he just tried to find a decent writer or two, a person or people who really care about this community, maybe the Herald could once more be a paper that made us all proud. Until then, I guess we just have to remember that this is, at the very least, a FREE paper - and you always get what you pay for...in this case, we get NOTHING.

Shame on the person or people who destroyed this nice little paper. It finally really is a rag!

Every Thursday we get The News Herald delivered to us. It is free to residents in Donelson, Hermitage and Old Hickory, TN. It is a good local newspaper that lets you know of things going on in the community. It's also a great place to advertise when you are going to have a yard sale.

When my stepson graduated from bootcamp they let us run a small article with picture about him. They didn't charge us for this and we greatly appreciated it. We think that is a nice thing to allow military families to share the accomplishments of those in military.

PROS: free, good for advertising yard sales
CONS: none

As a former journo myself, I??m deeply troubled by the pro-Metro bias literally dripping like contaminated e-coli yoke from each Lakewood Yes/No Metro article that Lakewood resident Catherine Randall has penned for the News Herald. In my opinion, Randall??s overall reportage on this matter has been shoddy and laughably amateurish. Almost any junior high cub reporter??s account would??ve been better balanced and certainly more professional.

Case in point: In her article published in the August 19th edition she carefully and extensively quotes the response of one of the individuals spearheading the Yes to Metro movement. I measured. She gave him two column inches! For the No to Metro coalition, however, rather than interviewing any of the key players, although following the August 16th special meeting the mayor, vice mayor, and a city commissioner or two were all available for interviews and comments, Randall chose to quote an anonymous John Q. Citizen, using that ridiculously ambivalent ??the devil you know? quote.

I??m equally disturbed that by allowing this stream of lopsided nonsense into print, the editorial staff of this publication has indicated their strong support of Randall??s pro position. Has anyone mentioned to Randall and her rag??s powers-that-be that such transparent, tainted and downright unethical ??yellow journalism? has been frowned upon since around the time of the Spanish-American war?

I??m not going to use this as a platform to bemoan the fact that Lakewood has been hijacked by a small group of shockingly self-interested business owners whom??absurdly??do not even reside in Davidson County, let alone our city, itself. And please don??t get me started on the way, so I??ve heard, anyway, that these pillars of our community sent out their lesser devils to intimidate, and to massage and exploit the fears and suspicions of the elderly or otherwise vulnerable members of the community to sign their petition and ultimately garner their ??yes? votes.

As it stands this group appears to have taken the election, if only by one vote. The only question that matters now is how they took it. And that??s what we??re going to investigate.

As a Lakewood citizen, a citizen of Davidson County, the state of Tennessee, the United States of America and beyond that, a citizen of the world, Catherine Randall has every right to her own opinion. If, however, it falls to her to report on the stages of Lakewood election investigation and its eventual outcome??and I fervently hope it doesn??t??it would be good if she somehow figured out the difference between a serious, well-balanced news article and a piece for the Op Ed page.

By the way, in the August 19th edition of her News Herald article Randall also reported that there was applause at the conclusion of the city council??s vote to allocate funds to investigate voter fraud which may have occurred before and during and following the election. She described that applause as a ??smattering.? I was there, too, and I thought the applause was quite resounding.
