About this Website

This website was not designed to replace your newspaper. Despite all the electronic and digital advancements over the last half-decade, newspapers are still in the business of selling newspapers. That hasn't changed, nor will it anytime soon. Indeed, our on line edition probably won't include enough local news to help out-of-towners really keep up with what's going on in Cameron. That's not its purpose.

Instead, our on line edition is a compliment to our print issue. It gives us a way to let our readers know about breaking news as soon as we know about it. As a community service, we update obituary information daily - we'll even update our obituary page over the weekend when we can. We can post scores and highlights of sports events, the details of that Thursday night town meeting and post other information that is important to civic life.

It won't replace your newspaper but it should replace your current home page quite nicely.


The Cameron Herald (USPS 086-920) is published each Thursday.
In Milam County $35 per year
Outside Milam County $40 per year
Outside Texas $46 per year
