Notes from the editor

Errors and misjudgments

As the editor and publisher of the Winston County Journal, I sincerely apologize to the Mullins family. The March 5 headline was not intended to make light of the tragic loss of a young man in the community.

The headline was a first draft of thoughts on deadline and nothing intentional to improperly cover a tragedy.

Also according to Mr. Mullins’ obituary on page 3, the spelling of his name and age supplied to us were incorrect. We apologize for those errors as well.

Another article error

In the DYW article on March 5 the scholarships awarded to the Winston County Distinguished Young Woman should have listed East Central Community College Scholarship as $990 a semester/2-year total:  $3,960.
