The Sun owes GHS an apology

A Jan. 17 article by Douane James on the front page of the regional section of The Gainesville Sun stated that a Gainesville High School employee faced disciplinary action for misusing GHS Band Booster money. That article was incorrect.

The individual involved in the misuse of funds was a volunteer in the booster organization. She was not an employee of Gainesville High School. I find it disturbing that James and The Gainesville Sun would make such an irresponsible mistake. The reputations and credibility of any number of GHS employees are likely to suffer.

In my opinion, James and the editors of The Gainesville Sun owe everyone associated with Gainesville High School an apology.
