Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor of The Beacon,

I am writing to tell you my personal opinion of our school news paper The Beacon. Let me start off by saying that I think it is wonderful that this paper is written by students for students. It’s always nice to see students come together to make something such as a newspaper. To put in the time and hours to find the stories and to edit and set it up.

I do feel that this paper provides important information to the students of the SMCC community. It has the big most effecting news on the front and page. This paper has relevant issues and stories. Such as whether or not the gun policy for guns on our campus has changed. Or even how to make the charge on people’s android phones last longer. Which is something anyone with a Android phone might want to know. There are a lot of sports fans out there so having a sports page is necessary to entice people to read the paper.

I do however have a few things to suggest and recommend for further editions of The Beacon. As I was reading I found quite a few grammar and spelling mistakes. I understand that you can’t catch everything. I would also like to bring to your attention to some of the jokes in the Broccoli section. I found the Hitler one to be a little on the offensive side, and a tad bit distasteful. I will admit that I personally had trouble understanding some of the artwork, but that’s only my opinion. Might I recommend that you move the sports section more towards the middle.

I hope that these suggestions help make the school paper even better than it already is. I decently will try to pick up more copies to read them when I have time to actually read them. 


Sincerely Your Reader 

Nicholas Cavanaugh
