Wrong information noted
The lead headline and article in your Dec. 12 edition ("Council OKs limit on big stores") contains errors of inexcusable gravity.

Since when does moving an ordinance from first reading to public hearing constitute passage? Likely there will be few commenting at the public hearing as the ordinance has already been passed by the Homer News. While it is understandable that a green reporter might not be familiar with the process, where is your editorial staff? Is proofreading a thing of the past?

While an informed public is the backbone of a democratic society, a misinformed public is a thing of danger. The Homer News has grasped the mantle it has been chasing as of late: That of Homer's second-best newspaper.
