Weiland story should have been online

Published 8:55 am Monday, April 19, 2010

As a frequent remote reader of the Albert Lea Tribune, I appreciate your online content. It is nice to be able to stay in touch with news stories and activities in the area. I was a bit dismayed to find an important story of a local missing man: “Where is Jon Weiland?” is only available in your print edition. I am sure family and friends of Mr. Weiland along with local authorities are doing all they can to get the facts of this case to as many people as possible be that in print or over the Internet. The Albert Lea Tribune needs to be more civic-minded and help bring closure to this case.

Editor’s note: We posted the story online by Monday morning, as we stated in that Sunday’s paper. And the result — the story helping to find Weiland — shows how powerful the print edition remains.
