    Re: “Warren, Council offering separate police oversight plans

    To Ted Forsyth: You're absolutely right. I was incorrect in referring to the board as an "advisory board" rather than an accountability board throughout the article. The article has been corrected.

    Re: “Frederick Douglass statue damaged; police arrest two

    To John Goodman: including information from other media and citing those media is a common journalistic practice and a requirement of journalistic ethics. When other journalists get the information, we owe it to those journalists to attribute it to them, not imply that we talked to the source or did the research ourselves.

    Re: “The New York governor's race: big choices, little attention

    To Drew Beeman 1: Sharpe's photograph was omitted in our print publication because of space. That said, we do make mistakes, and that was a major one. The far better choice would have been to omit the photograph of Governor Andrew Cuomo, who has had more than enough exposure.

    Re: “To our CITY readers: changes, and an invitation

    To Harry Pearle and David4: we've written about the Strong expansion plans (which do indeed include additional space at the museum) several times since it was announced nearly two years ago. The full complex will include the museum expansion, the hotel, a residential building, and parking.

    Re: “Groups want a shift in city development

    To Alex White: The HomeWork feature is an ad produced by the Landmark Society of Western New York, not a story. City Newspaper donates the space for it, but we do not select the subject or write the text.
