  1. To: The Editor

    Perhaps another picture would be appropriate. You mention that two more bodies were found and then post a picture of the children, one deceased and the other still missing. It leads the reader to believe that the two new bodies were the children posted in the picture. With an eye towards protecting your credibility, I think you should take these pictures down and replace them.

  2. Our deepest condolences go out to the families in Wimberley who have suffered so much loss and devastation within this beautiful community. God bless you. The Davis family. Austin Texas.
