Sarah Holyhead: Does it have to lead just because it bleeds?

I’m disappointed to see The Union regularly putting horrifying and gruesomely detailed stories about local crimes above the fold on the front page.

Sure, these terrible events are part of our community and we should be informed about them (to some degree). But should we define our community by these events or sensationalize them? Should we put them on the front page, for everyone to start their day with? Please, editor, set a better example and help us rise above our darkest elements.

Nevada County is so much more than the crime that takes place here.
