Herald & Review, news or not

I ran to the door today to read the newspaper with great interest. After reading the newspaper all I could think is, if this is a newspaper where is the news? As a recap, the front page covered a tea party and a kid that makes movies in Mt. Zion, besides that there was an article on the Formosa Explosion in Illipopolis, past that everything was an AP or Knight Ridder article or a news brief. To steal an old commercial, where's the news? Anyone can make a newspaper that takes articles off the wires, where is the news that matters to Decatur? 3 articles and briefs, in the eyes of the directorship of the Herald and Review that is all the news Decatur deserves.
