Corrections

The Auburn Plainsman reports the truth as accurately as possible on news events of the day. Online archives are a part of the institutional memory of the newspaper and a historical record of our community.

As such, we will not remove nor attempt to hide from commercial search engines any material in our online archives - news stories, story comments, editorials, opinion columns, photographs or graphic illustrations. In certain instances, we may choose to update a story if it is found to be wildly inaccurate, misidentify a person resulting in damage to one's reputation, or endanger a life.

If an error in our archived content is brought to our attention and documented to our satisfaction, we will append the original article with an editor's note acknowledging the change made to the original archive, as well as the date and time any changes were made. That decision is solely at the discretion of the current student editorial board.
