The following are corrections to items in the January 2008 issue of
• The article titled “Simmons Files for Sheriff” on page 7 was written by
Lorraine Churchill, not Scott Laird.
• The Waste water and Storm Water Assessment story reported on page
6 under City News took place at the Public Works Committee Meeting
on November 27, not the City Council Meeting.
• In Shirlee Daughtry’s letter to the editor, Ms. Daughtry wished to
thank Teresa Howes for her donation. Ms. Daughtry dictated her letter
by phone. We apologize to Ms. Howes for misspelling her last name.
