Communication is key, spelling is secondary

Don Benton, a state senator and Clark County’s director of Environmental Services, sent an email Friday titled “Communication is Key,” to reporters at The Columbian (and others) asking for money so he can refute stories that have appeared in The Columbian.

Reporters┬ádon’t give money to political candidates, but here’s a free tip: “Environmental” is spelled e-n-v-i-r-o-n-m-e-n-t-a-l.
