    Recently, the Central Kentucky News-Journal reported on a local official who was charged with an alcohol-related offense.

    Naturally, the CKNJ covered the story. That was our responsibility, and it's the same way we would handle any other public official in a similar situation. Still, we've heard some complaints, including people calling our office to cancel their subscription to the CKNJ because of the story.
