Possible bad omen seen in placement of stories

Sometimes the layout of the paper makes me shake my head. The front page of Aug. 23 is one of these times.

Hawaiian Commercial & Sugar Co. has a new small remote-controlled helicopter to help with the monitoring of crops. Right under that was a story about Deer Trail, Colo., and how the town is considering putting a bounty on drones.

Hope no one comes from Deer Trail to Maui with their rifle or no one on Maui decides to send parts of a helicopter back to Colorado for some quick cash.

Seems like the story of Deer Trail could have been buried in the paper. Then someone wouldn’t get any ideas about how to hurt HC&S.
