We find this gem buried at the bottom of paid weekly columnist George Boardman’s (AKA “Bored Georgeman’s”) column on Monday morning (October 31) in The Union newspaper, stemming from an inaccurate, embarrassing and uninformed rant against Measure “B,” a needed initiative to upgrade our schools (and support our youth):
“CORRECTION: A $784,000 expenditure for a new track at Nevada Union High School mentioned in last week’s column on Measure B is money earmarked for a new turf field at Hooper Stadium if voters approve the bond issue. District officials state the proposed expenditure is a low priority item.”
It comes on the heels of another inaccurate, embarrassing and uninformed rant — and this correction — from “Bored’s” October 16 column:
“CORRECTION: Sloppy note taking and some ham-handed typing turned a mention of Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soap in last week’s column into Dr. Bonner’s Magic Soup. I apologize for the error.”
When is The Union’s management (AKA Publisher Don Rogers and Editor Brian Hamilton) going to dump this moronic column? What are Don and Brian afraid of? The ghost of Jeff Ackerman (a Boardman “mini me”)? Jeff is safely out of the state, much less the community.
Give us all a break! I double dare you. BTW, why isn’t Boardman’s confidant R.L. Crabb cartooning this? It should be titled CORRECTION. roflol.
