Editor's Note: More and better police news? It could happen



As a result, we hope to come up with new ideas and options for presenting police news. We will then invite readers to review those options and assess their value. Specifically, a “coffee with the editors” in the 12 Points area will be scheduled in which readers will be asked to join us for a discussion about their newspaper and how we can better serve their needs as readers and citizens.

More information about this meeting will be forthcoming. Stay tuned.

On Friday, Sept. 14, the Tribune-Star published a photograph of Indiana State University President Lloyd Benjamin delivering his fall address on campus.

The photo contained regrettable content that discerning readers could conclude was intended to make light of the president or hold him up to ridicule.

Publication of that photograph represented an unfortunate lapse in judgment by the newspaper. I have written a personal apology to President Benjamin for this lapse. Today, I also apologize to our readers. You should expect more from your newspaper and we will strive to prevent any future breach of journalistic standards.

A letter published in Readers’ Forum following the recent downtown blues festival complained that the event featured no local talent.

That letter prompted life-long Terre Haute resident Larry Long to call me and point out that his band — Boondocks Blues — opened the festival. Not only is Long a member of the band and a talented local musician, he tends to most of the bands bookings and business.

While other members of the band were from outside the area, he wanted readers to know that the local music scene was indeed represented by his presence.
