Dear readers,

Rumors are circulating this week about an incident in east Hastings. We have spoken with the Hastings Police Department several times regarding this case, and they have made it very clear that the situation was a mental health crisis. Police have investigated the matter carefully and thoroughly. While many details surrounding the case are in fact public, we are choosing not to report them.

Like most media outlets, this newspaper has a policy regarding mental health crises: We do not report on them unless they occur in public. This one did not.

We are doing our best to respect the family involved in this sad case, and we hope that you'd do the same.
