Nicholas F. Benton’s column “On the Murder Of a Black Youth” in the July 18 edition of the News-Press uses the 911 call from George Zimmerman as evidence of racial profiling. However, Mr Zimmerman did not simply add “He looks black.” He was answering the question of the 911 operator, who asked “OK, and this guy, is he white, black or hispanic?”, which Mr. Benton left out of his version of the 911 transcript.

I’m writing in response to a ‘Letter to the Editor’ from your June 20 edition in which the writer claims that the “left wants no regulation of abortion clinics.” The writer seemed to miss the point of the clinic’s argument.

 Not Longest, But Shortest Council Terms Editor, Due to a mathematical error, in the election story on page 5 and your editorial, you have misstated the length of the terms being served by the three retiring incumbent Council members. They began their terms on July 1, 2010 and their terms […]
