I heard last week that this newspaper, and in particular this editor, were wrongly accused around some of the local morning coffee tables. It was noted that the newspaper was unfairly playing up one side of the Fourth District Elementary School closure issue over the other. Let me assure the readers of this newspaper that our stance has been neutral on the issue and will remain neutral.
However, a mistake was made in a few of the advertisements. A portion of the advertisements did not have a statement at the bottom that said they were “paid advertisements”. Know that this is a mistake we will not make again. All advertisements, concerning Fourth District were paid.
