n In a caption for the front-page photo in last weeks We interrupt this century story, the News-Times refers to the painting of Our Lady of Guadalupe as an idol, which could imply the painting itself is worshipped. The correct term is image.
n In a Dec. 3 story on how to fund the Cornelius Fire Department, the News-Times erroneously indicated city officials might have to increase property taxes by as much as $3 per $1,000 to $8 per $1,000 in order to maintain current fire services. In fact, the $3 to $8 figure was part of city councilors speculation about how much the citys General Service Fee (utility user fee) might have to increase per month in order to maintain services if a fire levy failed, said City Manager Rob Drake. If passed, the proposed fire levy would increase property taxes by 69 cents per $1,000 for a five-year operating levy dedicated only to fire services, Drake said.JW_DISQUS_ADD_A_COMMENT
