Letter: Wedding announcement was a prank gone too far

Editor's note: The engagement announcement published on page 4A of Monday's print edition was incorrect and the result of a prank. News-Herald Media regrets the error and has established new verification procedures to avoid repeating the error.

EDITOR: In the "Moments of Life" section on Monday, News-Herald Media included information saying that Alex Kitchner and Matt Griffith were planning a wedding. To set the record straight, they are not planning a wedding, nor are they gay.

Regrettably, I made this submission to the paper without thinking about the repercussions. This was an unfunny prank and I clearly crossed the line. It is an unforgivable mistake and I would like to apologize to both the Kitchner and Griffith families. What I did was childish and idiotic, and I deeply regret my actions.

I would also like to apologize to News-Herald Media and whomever else I may have offended. This is not a joking matter and I am ashamed of myself for my actions.
