Sometimes we wonder why it is so important to report events such as people getting critically injured, or found dead in this case. Recently my mother passed away, and the mortuary reminded us that it is up to us to have her obituary published. Unfortunately death, as well as births and marriages are within the scope of any local newspaper, as well as The State Department of Health.

Yep. The function of a newspaper is not only to report about sports events, crimes, news of the day, etc., but to act as an official witness to seemingly mundane events in the lives of the citizens in its community. Vital statistics - births, deaths, marriages - are properly reported in a town's daily. One very well known example would be the reporting of our President's birth in the Honolulu Advertiser.
