Judgment on top story decision questioned

NEW CASTLE — Editor, The News:

I am writing regarding the poor judgment The News displayed on Christmas Eve.

The Number 8 story of 2012 was the fire that claimed the lives of my niece, Lisa (Stelter) Oliver and her youngest daughter, Katie.

My family has been trying to cope with this tragedy all year. To publish this story on Christmas Eve was unconscionable.

In the future, please take into consideration the effect these stories may have on the families.
