BennettHall commented on Complaint filed against jail opponent


If you'll read the story carefully, you'll see that I did just that. Grappo's expenditures did not appear on the Orestar website until Tuesday night -- after the election complaint was filed and after I asked him about it. At that point, Grappo checked the website again and reali…

Sorry! That was a poor choice of words. lobo is exactly right: I was referring to temperature, as indicated by the mercury level in a thermometer. But given the subject matter of this particular story, I should have said that more directly. To be crystal clear: The taste and odor issue af…

BennettHall commented on Sides square off in GMO fight

We actually published photos of both "Yes" and "No" signs, both in print and online (see the top of this web page). Our website can only feature one photo at a time. The reason we didn't include a photo of the forum is because it hadn't happened as of presstime; we were t…

This is Canda Fuqua's last story for the Gazette-Times. She's leaving to take another job. Thanks for making the G-T a better newspaper, Canda. We'll miss you.

BennettHall commented on County restricts sales, use of e-cigs

Actually, the ordinance bans the sale of e-cigarettes to anyone under the age of 18. I got that wrong in the print version of this article as well as the original online version, where I wrote that the minimum age was 21 (the mistake has now been corrected online). My apologies for the confusion.

The story was inadvertently double-posted. One version has now been removed. Thanks for pointing it out.
