Sorry 'bout that


Last week, the Courier printed a letter about the recent election of the Bandera County River Authority and Groundwater District from Bob Grimes. We took the liberty of including Grimes' elected position as a county commissioner and, in the process, made him commissioner of Precinct 2 as opposed to the correct Precinct 1. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have engendered.

On Thursday, May 16, the Courier received the following letter from Bob Grimes pointing out the error of our ways, which we will now print in its entirety - without editing:

"Please see the below letter and how it is signed.

Should you print letters from me in the future, kindly reflect correctly who [sic] the letter is from. It was from Bob Grimes, NOT Bob Grimes, County Commissioner, and I was not elected to represent Precinct 2. The letter was not written as an elected official, and taking the liberty to sign it as such was and is inappropriate."
