Editor’s note: The Union’s weekly columnist George Boardman has posted a formal “clarification” (AKA correction) on his blog for a post titled “Making a concealed weapons list, check it twice.” This has been a pattern with George’s journalism, causing considerable consternation in the community. Here’s another: Confusing the Auburn and Folsom Dams. Duh. As I said last week, The Union needs to dump George before it’s too late. The Union links to George’s blog — at its peril.
Clarification of ‘Making a concealed weapons list…’
Posted on February 21, 2014 by George Boardman
Sheriff Keith Royal said earlier this week he didn’t provide a list of Nevada County residents with concealed weapons permits to The Union when the newspaper requested the information in 2004.
In accordance with the law, Royal said he first notified permit holders about the paper’s request. He said he subsequently received a call from publisher Jeff Ackerman canceling The Union’s request for the information.
The original post, “Making a concealed weapons list, checking it twice,” has been revised to incorporate this information.
