It filled me with sadness and even grief to read about Izabel's Laxamana's death. Along with thousands around the world, my heart goes out to her family and friends.
The coverage this story received in The News Tribune showed a remarkable restraint and hewed to the facts. When a newspaper operates this way, it illustrates why it's so important to a community.. The process laid out in "Waiting for facts" (Karen Peterson column, 6-14) is the essence of journalism.
Thanks for remembering that on the other side of a story is a person, a family and a community seeking healing.
