n In a caption for the front-page photo in last week’s “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 city’s 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.
