Diana Fuentes, Editor of the Laredo Times, was honored by city staff today.  This comes as she gets ready to start her new job next week as newspaper editor and publisher in Del Rio, Texas.

Two years ago we took issue with the LMT as they started charging for their online content.  We weren't crazy about the idea, as were many other people.  Ms. Fuentes was quick to defend the Times' new policy.  There was quite a bit of back and forth between us but that's in the past.  The only constant that's remained is the fact that our local paper still charges for its eEdition and others around the state don't.

Nevertheless, we wish Ms. Fuentes the best of luck with her new role.  Perhaps our paths will cross again someday under better circumstances.  Until then, congratulations.
