Gallup Herald Suspends Publication

It is with heartfelt sorrow that I am announcing the closure of The Gallup Herald. The Oct. 3, issue was our last print edition. The reasons for this difficult decision are many but mainly include costly business mistakes and decisions, and the economy and casino hitting this community harder than many want to realize. We served the greater Gallup community for eight years and hope we made it just a little better place to live in. For our supporters, my deepest thanks. For our detractors or those who were subjects in some of news stories, you may relish in our defeat.
I am confident we provided Gallup with a good product. In the words of President Teddy Roosevelt:
"It is not the critic who counts...The credit belongs to the man in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly...who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at worst, if he fails, at least fails while doing greatly."
Thank you and God Bless.
