GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) _ A member of the Grand Forks City Council has apologized for a Facebook post that offended some other members.
Council members received an email Tuesday night with a screen shot of a Facebook status posted by Tyrone Grandstrand. The status was part of a campaign urging residents to contact council members to voice support for an expanded recycling program.
The status included the phrase ``dead white males on the council.'' Grandstrand says he copied the status from someone else and failed to see that line of text. He says he removed the post and apologized to his fellow councilmen.
But he also says some people don't feel they're well represented on the council on some issues, including recycling.
