In reading the story “Nevada County Court allows operation of Kendall House” on page 3 (and online) this morning, I noticed the name of one of the main people in the article was misspelled. Her name is “Mollie,” not “Molly” in the third paragraph. This can be easily checked.
If that’s not enough, the name of Mollie’s husband also is misspelled. His name is spelled “Declan,” not “Decklan.”
Misspelling someone’s name (and a prominent name in a story, no less) gets a “Medill F.” That’s two F’s! The background on a “Medill F” is here.
I also wish that whenever The Union writes about the “Friends of Spring Street” or “Friends of whatever” for that matter, it identifies the people.
When will The Union adopt the professional standards of most “big city” newspapers? Never, I guess. I just don’t think it’s a priority for the management.
The management’s priority is “hobnobbing” around town (“See me!”) or defending the latest indefensible gaffe. Podunk.
