KNS Gets It Wrong

It is unusal for Knoxville's flagship paper to get something wrong. They normally leave that up to their little cousin paper the Slopper.

However, I feel that it is neccesary to point out even one small error in Rebecca Ferrar's story (story located here) in todays edition. It is only fair and consistent to point out errors on everybody.

Here is the paragraph that contains the error. Commissioner Craig Leuthold, who was not term-limited and won’t run again till 2010, said he’s looking forward to the release of Monday’s audit and other audits of the Ragsdale administration’s use of purchasing cards and a hospitality fund that received private donations for public events.

Now, surely the News-Sentinel understands the issue of term limits. If they do than they will know that Commissioner Craig Leuthold is unable to run again for County Commission. He was first elected in 2002 and re-elected in 2006. So, with two consecutive terms served, he is unable to "run again till 2010."

I wonder if Craig is getting his yard signs back out, because surely Jack McElroy will not file a lawsuit since his paper has given him permission to run in 2010.
