To the Editor:

I am editor of the McNary Estates Newsletter and I would like to take this opportunity to apologize to the residents of McNary Estates and Keizer for a mistake I made in publishing a joke article in the April edition of the Newsletter.

I include several jokes at the last minute from the Internet to fill in blank spaces in pages to complete the April edition before a rush press time. I inserted the “What the Fire Chief Said” and this was very inappropriate material to place into the newsletter.  This was very careless and stupid to do and I am very sorry that I didn’t realize it at the time.

McNary Estates Newsletter is a non-profit operation and one person, myself, has run the operation for the past 21 years. If we probably would have had a proof reader, this wouldn’t have happened.  But it did happen and I am sorry for causing the McNary Estates Board of Directors and residents embarrassment for the article.
