For the record
Front Page, week of October 8, 2022
You’ll find, below, a link to Copper Beacon’s Corrections page, which now, I’m chagrined to say, has its first entry.
To be clear, I don’t make entries on the Corrections page when I correct small typos or formatting errors, only when I have to actually change word usage. So this change could make the meaning of the sentence, and maybe even the story, change for you.
That’s why it’s important to not only make the change, but also very intentionally share that change with all of you, and do my best to make sure you see it.
It’s also essential that you know that Copper Beacon is willing to inspect and correct potential errors. This issue was brought to our attention by a reader. After a review by both me and the reporter, we agreed that a change should be made. More specifics below.
The wording of the second sentence in Claw and Order was updated to be more accurate and specific, from “House cats are considered an invasive species and can be damaging to the ecosystem.” to “Domesticated cats living outdoors are often considered an invasive species, as they can cause significant damage to the ecosystem.”
To be totally clear, this now-corrected sentence was added during the editing process by the editor, not by the reporter.
If you believe there is an error in any of Copper Beacon’s stories, please send a note to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Upcoming presentations about local drug enforcement and mental health response are happening this week. Send any other events you have to email@example.com.
