A Note from the Editor

December 21, 2012 by Randy Keck

We are busy at work finishing up our annual Good News issue of The Community News.

In the mean time, the rumor mill in Aledo has been going at full speed. Please know that The Community News has not, and will not, give credibility to rumors by either reporting on them or repeating them.

But please also know that we will report on actual newsworthy events when they happen, either in the newspaper or on this website.

We invite you to check back here over the next two weeks in the event of breaking news.

We wish all our readers a safe and wonderful Christmas!

Randy Keck, Editor
