As promised, although much later than had been anticipated, Myleadernews is back in business for your reading enjoyment and input. You should find it more streamlined than in the past.
I believe this area needs an online publication that not only includes editorial comments by this writer, but blogs from contributors (like you), as well as unbiased articles.
Also, it will involve some news from the Rio Grande Valley and South Texas – news that you either don’t get from your other local media and/or comments and opinions that those media folks do not include.
The staff includes myself (Jerry), son Jay and grandsons, Josiah and Jordan Deal. I am the writer, they are the computer whizzes who will keep this publication going.
Myleadernews has taken notice about the MyHarlingennews.com, and until recently was a contributor, in lieu of having this publication in operation. Our intentions are not to take away from that source, in fact, some of the views expressed in that online publication are like or similar to ours. There may be times that there is duplication. An example of this will be Rio Grande Valley WhiteWings news items. Although I also represent the United League Baseball as media director, I still will see that all publications in the region get Wings and league news, including MyHarlingennews.com.
However, no swear words, racist or possible libelous remarks will be permitted. They will be stricken from the contributor’s blog.
We will continue to also include some state and national news. Actually, Myleadernews never quit doing that, it has been here for all to read. But, we will not clutter up the publication with some handouts, especially if they have or will appear in other media outlets.
We not only welcome your opinions, we encourage them.
However, we are going to first check them out, so that we can avoid any libelous statements and will run only those who offer their identifications.
If you do not want to be identified publicly, include a name that you would like to be used online. But, I repeat, you must identify yourself to Myleadernews and state you do not want to be identified publicly.
Having been in the news dodge for some 40 years, I know that there are times that contributors are afraid or at least reluctant to identify themselves publicly. Down the years, I have used unnamed sources, although I have known who they were.
Last, but not least, for those who might want to advertise. Just let us know and you will get a quote.
So, spread the word to everyone you know that they can now sign on to Myleadernews.
Send your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks to all for your patience.
Jerry, Jay, Josiah and Jordan Deal
