Writer apologizes to Magna

I want to apologize to the people of Magna for the line I wrote in my Aug. 27 game recap of the Tooele vs. Cyprus game in which I called Magna “ugly.”

It was a form of editorializing that shouldn’t have been used in a game recap.

I also want to apologize to Tooele County’s high school athletes. Playing sports is hard enough. You don’t need my written words to possibly make it harder for you to compete.
