Authorship of letter was confusing

Published 1:03 am Friday, September 23, 2011

It has come to my attention that a letter to the editor written in the Opinion section of The Natchez Democrat on Sept. 9 by a man whose name is the same as mine.

The article was titled, “Drug cases not open and closed.” It was signed by Clarence Bacon, a Natchez resident.

I did not write the letter, nor give a statement to The Democrat on that or any other issue. To my knowledge, I am the only Clarence Bacon in Natchez. I live at 15 Ring Circle Drive.

Editor’s note: The author of the first letter signed by a different Clarence Bacon was verified, according to our standard procedure. Neither Mr. Bacon uses a middle initial. We regret any confusion.
