Last month we began featuring our Help Us Out! Survey in the Crowsnest Pass Herald and the results are in.
You the readers like stories about local politics, people and businesses but you’re not finding the theatre directory very useful and only half of you use the puzzle page.
Here are a few more highlights.
• Did You Knows: liked by 78 per cent.
• Question of the Week: liked by 65 per cent.
• Police Briefs: liked by 83 per cent.
• Community Calendar: liked by 78 per cent.
• Theatre Directory: liked by 43.5 per cent.
• Puzzle Page: liked by 50 per cent and Word Search is the most popular puzzle.
You like feature columnists John Kinnear and S.C. Rudegan and 78 per cent of responders want to see more feature writers.
Some of you want additional features added to the paper; recipes; jokes; contests; kid stuff; colouring contests; cartoons; kids puzzles; horoscopes and throwbacks.

The majority of respondents want more articles/columns on health and wellness issues but you’d also like more articles on sports, fashion and travel. About half of respondents would like us to feature a Dear Abby column.
Twenty-three of our literati responded to the survey – I suspect hundreds more wanted to respond but couldn’t find a pen and or pencil; it happens to us all the time.
Here are a few of the comments we received:
“Love the new front page! Love reading local news on events/happenings.”
“Anything additionally on local history – always appreciated.”
“Favourite parts are news about what’s happening in the Crowsnest Pass. Least favourite parts are the letters to the editor.”
We’d like to thank all of people who took the time to respond. We invite readers to send any additional comments to passherald@shaw.ca.
