TRAGEDY: Headline was insensitive to Fay family

First of all, our thoughts and prayers go out to the family of Jamie Fay.

The News Tribune article written by staff writer Alexis Krell about the tragic accident that took the life of Chambers Bay golf official, Jamie Fay, was indeed sorrowful and well written. I do, however, take issue with the headline that appeared in the print version of the article: “Cash raised for dead golf course official.”

I thought that was so crass. That headine could have been softened a little for the sake of the family members who would be reading it, to maybe read, “Money raised for family of golf official.”
