It would appear that James Day (and your proofreader) need swimming lessons. The first sentence of Dec. 19's (front page) story about the Corvallis City Council says it "dived into" an issue. Any swimmer will tell you that adding "D" to "Dive" doesn't make it something that happened in the past. Just to help Day out, The City Council "dove into" any thing that happened in the past.
