It has been brought to our attention that portions of the article, Under the Radar: Development and Community Input in Gardiner in the Spring issue of the Gazette were not up to the Gazette’s usual standard of impartial journalism.
One of our editorial goals has always been to facilitate a dialogue which strengthens our community, encourages the development of community programs, and promotes caring for and helping those who live around us.
We think Under the Radar did that nicely, with its call for each of us to involve ourselves more deeply in what becomes of our town.
We have also stated, however, that Gazette articles should not promote any particular point of view. The article didn’t get that part quite right, and we should have caught it.
Sincere thanks to those who take the time to give us a nudge back in the right direction. We will continue our efforts to be a community service for all of Gardiner.
