Morning ya'll. I am sitting and drinking my cup of coffee and scanning over your newspaper and I got to page 6 and there in big red letters is Kenny King's political announcement. I'm wondering do you have a proofreader? A misspelled word I totally understand but this a 5" x 10", taking up 3 columns and half the page and you can't even read the honking thing. There is no way this could have been overlooked if there was proofreading happening before publication. I know ya'll are busy and some things just get missed but something like this should NEVER be missed. I'll be looking for a reprint in next week's paper and I'll be checking to make sure he wasn't charged for it again. I'm confident you will do the right thing and run it again at no cost.
