Forum editors need sensitivity training

Is it really necessary to mention a 2006 DWI arrest in the death notice for a community leader? Mike Unhjem was a well-respected member of this community. I have worked with him personally, and I have witnessed him make an impact on many people’s lives.

I feel it was rude and crass to mention that, and The Forum should apologize in the next printing of the newspaper and also on the website. I will continue to

e-mail and call The Forum until this has been addressed. I believe your editors may need some sensitivity training.
