Letter to the editor Cartoonist view

Voice of the people
Takes issue with reporting
This letter is in response to Zack Plair’s 12/28/18 ar-
ticle on city credit card usage. The last sentence saying
that Parks and Recreation Director Greg Lewis had two
charges at local restaurants left your readers with the
impression that these charges were for personal use.
If complete facts were given, your readers would
know that every purchase made has a receipt submitted
with a code that explains what the charge is for. There
is no code for “personal usage,” therefore, no purchases
can be made for personal use. The two charges that Mr.
Lewis made that were mentioned in the article were
legitimate purchases. If Zack Plair had included this
information in his article, your readers would not have
been led to assume wrongdoing had taken place.
It is not advantageous to your readers to print arti-
cles that contain only partial information. I hope The
Commercial Dispatch takes into consideration this let-
ter and prints all the facts in their articles, not just what
creates sensationalism. I also hope this letter is printed
so your readers can know the complete facts.
Glenda Cummings
Administrative Assistant
Columbus Parks and Recreation

Editor’s note: The article in question suggested without
evidence that Lewis and Mayor Robert Smith inappropri-
ately used city credit cards on food purchases. We should
not have highlighted those expenditures out without
providing context. We apologize to Smith, Lewis and our
readers. We have edited the online version of the story and
removed those references.

damning accusations, as
well as fines against dio-
ceses and court-ordered
safety measures.
“People saw what hap-
pened in these parishes
in Pennsylvania and said,
‘That happened in my
parish too.’ They could
see the immediate con-
nection, and they are
demanding the same ac-
counting,” said Tim Len-
non, national president of
the board of the Survivors
Network of those Abused
by Priests, or SNAP.
The recently disclosed
accusations date back six
or seven decades in some
cases, with the oldest from
the 1910s in Louisiana.
