    The city editors can and do post breaking news items.
    don't get mad... just wondering why he/she then couldn't have edited the article earlier?

    If the editors can and do post breaking items, then they must use some sort of automation (i.e. a computer) to get it online.

    And if they can and do post breaking items, why can't they also edit items that have already been posted?

    You are making a whole bunch of weird assumptions in this thread.
    I don’t think Mānoa said anyone deserves a raise. Only that Blaine should get additional money for putting up with reporter (or copy editor, layout editor, etc.) incompetence. Call it a “babysitter's fee” independent of his salary.

    Hell, Blaine rocks, so I'd say he deserves a raise no matter what. Mad too. And Burl. Especially for putting up with us.

    Raises for everyone, I say!

    Including - Ryan, Mel, Helen, Lynn, Manoa, Jeffrey Green, Tristin, Bard, Lurkah, Kimo, and anyone else who wants one.

    A cute one in a Breaking News item at http://starbulletin.com/breaking/breaking.php?id=4960 :

    "Police arrested a burglary suspect who allegedly made himself at home at another man’s Wahiawa apartment.
    "Police said the man who lives in the apartment left for work at about 10 p.m. Wednesday and locked his apartment.
    "At about 8 p.m. the next morning a neighbor noticed another man inside the apartment. The neighbor called the resident who found out that the suspect showered, ate food and took clean clothes.
    "Police arrested the 41-year-old man, who has no local address, for investigation of first-degree burglary."


    8 p.m. the next morning? Cute! Pau hana Friday.
    We all make misteaks. No biggie.
    .
    .

    That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

    The Advertiser's Jerry Burris kindly pointed out a bit of a goof in the Star-Bulletin -- specifically, the huge insert intended to help voters get informed about the many voter initiatives coming up on the General Election ballot. It was informative, as Burris notes... but it said to vote on November 4, not November 7.

    Fortunately, the Bulletin caught it early enough to include an additional insert with a correction.

    I wonder if the error was part of what the state submitted, or came from the Bulletin?

    I'd have a look myself, but we canceled our subscription. Shh!

    It was submitted by the state and verified by the state as correct, as Burris almost certainly knew. By the time someone at the S-B noticed the error, it was too late to fix, so we ran a correction, which was published the same day.

    On an unrelated note, I think it's pretty funny that the guy who started this thread about Star-Bullein mistakes put an apostrophe in "boo boos." Talk about people in glass houses throwing stones!

    Do you also get possessive about your "boo's"? (Or perhaps, while the pronunciation is accurate, the spelling should be different? Think about it. But not too hard. Have a drink while you do, and you will be enlightened.)

    Another cute manini sorta boo-boo in a story at this link. The story's headline says:

    Counties spend $397K on disabled placards

    And of course my first thought was "What happened to the placards to make them disabled?"

    .
    .

    That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

    The only "boo-boo" was in your reading of the headline. Makes sense to me.

    Another sad attempt at humor. All it's doing is bloating your post count.

    I believe not running this shot long enough to show off this guy's, ahem, board shorts is a Star-Bulletin booboo. Big time.

    Indeed! One has to wonder if they would've cropped a photo of an attractive female surfer at the same level. SB folks?

    Most layout editors come from a writing background, and they automatically trim a picture rather than cut a story. Or, maybe the guy's coin slot was showing.

    Nice to see a thread that was started by ManoaSurfer123. I miss him still.

    But hey, look on the bright side. Powertrippers can exclude who they want, and someday you too can be powerful.

    The photo was shot horizontal, then cropped square. The (ahem) bottom of the photo is the bottom of the photo.

    "Coin slot." Good one...

    I bet there are more people on HT who don't miss him. I know I don't.

    When it's your sandbox, you can make the rules. Quit whining.
