Laurada B. Byers, widow of slain
columnist and senior editor W. Russell G. Byers, said that a story in Thursday's
about the Russell Byers Charter School may have left the wrong impression about whether she has forgiven Javier Goode, the man serving a life sentence for her husband's murder. "I have forgiven Mr. Goode and have let go of the anger I felt 10 years ago," she said. "Russell's death was a horribly painful thing to deal with, but my life has gone on and it's a good life."
