Letter: An apology

Re. When school districts lose their direction, Aug. 21
On Aug. 21, an article that I wrote was published in the Wilson County News, which dealt with the Floresville Independent School District. I have reviewed my source material, notes, and investigated the subject matter, and now know that I made errors for which I am deeply sorry and for which I apologize, and for which I wish to correct at this time.
In the article the wording stated that “... the school board president was accused of public drunkenness at a school baseball game in which he was thrown out of the ball park.” That statement is not true or correct, and I retract it wholly and completely at this time.
The article continued by stating, “... this same board member has also been accused of bullying tactics with other board members whose spouses were employed with the district.” That statement is not correct, and I retract it wholly and completely at this time.
These errors should not have been made, and I am deeply sorry and apologize to any person that may be affected by these inaccuracies in my article, to the school board president, and to my readers.
