Florida official apologizes for 'jewing' comment

The chairwoman of a board of commissioners in Franklin County, Florida, said she apologized to those who questioned her for using the word “jewing” to describe salary discussions at a public meeting.
Cheryl Sanders told Jim Romenesko, who runs an eponymous news business blog, that her use of the word at a July 2 meeting had “been blown out of proportion.”
