A letter in the Dec. 19, 2019 edition of the North Coast Journal included an editor's note that was written in error due to a miscommunication between Journal editors and columnist David Wilson. The note explained that Wilson reported he'd been in touch with the letter writer, Jeni Sue Wilburn, to discuss Wilburn's belief that Wilson had misidentified a star in his Nov. 28 column "Lost in Space." We've now learned that Wilson had been in touch with a different reader on the same subject but not Wilburn, but he maintains that the astrological identification in the Nov. 28 column is accurate. The Journal regrets the error and any confusion it may have caused.
In the same Dec. 19, 2019, issue, the story headlined "Supes Deny Controversial Wind Project" also included an error. In one instance, the names of Monument Ridge and Bear River Ridge were reversed. It is Bear River Ridge that is known as Tsakiyuwit by the Wiyot Tribe and is revered as a sacred ancestral prayer site. The Journal regrets the error.
