Once again, LNP chose to cast a negative shadow on Columbia Borough. The Sept. 8 edition, Page A3, contains an article headlined “Columbia man charged with sexual assault.” As you read down the article, you will see the alleged assailant’s address listed as “182 Stone House Lane, Apt. A, in West Hempfield Township.” Clearly stated, West Hempfield Township — not Columbia Borough.

This has happened time and time again in your newspaper. This type of negative reporting has a serious effect on the economic development and revitalization efforts of many Columbia Borough residents and businesses. If you want to continue to be a reliable news source, doing a bit of investigation and editing will go a long way toward retaining readers and becoming a respected partner in communities.
