Rather than cover the G-7 meeting of world leaders, the Wheeling News-Register had more important stories to cover on its front page. By the size of its headline, the biggest story of the day was the Strawberry Festival in Martins Ferry:
A Berry Blast From The Past in Martins Ferry
Next to it was:
Gifts for Different Types of Dads
(This is front page news?)
Also on the front page were:
Color Run Supports Augusta Levy
Garden Market Held at Mansion
Finally, at the top of the page was a story about how local Ohio judges reacted to a Michigan court case in which the defendant questioned the judge's impartiality because of the judge's harsh words.
Local Judges Weigh In on Mich. Rhetoric Case
I have no idea why this story is news, let alone top-of-the-front-page news. It is poorly written and as far as I can tell, it has little, if any, relevance for local readers. (The case in question is not identified nor is its importance explained.) The article tells us that the case got national coverage but my search yielded nothing that fit the article's description. Other than filling up space, why is this front page news?
Page 4 of the News-Register does provide us with the first 436 words of a 1319 word AP report on the G-7 summit. By the way, the widely-distributed picture of German Chancellor Merkel and the other summit leaders with President Trump was not used by the News-Register.
