The company pledges to carry in the merged edition every feature now found in either The Morning Herald or The Daily Mail.

By ELLEN LYON Staff Writer In her nearly 30-year career, Herald-Mail reporter Franca Lewis took on public officials and doggedly stood up for those people without a voice - gaining the respect and friendship of both groups. Today her colleagues and sources alike are mourning her passing. Lewis, 50, died suddenly Monday night while covering the assignment closest to her heart - the town of Williamsport. She had just checked on the results of the town election and had gone to her home at 100 W.

On April 18, 1982, the Herald-Mail was loaded with local content, but nuclear disarmament seemed to be the dominant topic in the paper.
