Correction

In the Wednesday, Dec. 19, edition of the Journal Record, in the story named “‘X’ marks the spot,” C3 of Northwest Alabama’s branding, “Crossroads of the Automotive South,” was incorrectly referred to as “Crossroads of the Automatic South.” The title was also incorrect on a second reference, where it was written as “Crossroads of the Autmotic South.”
We regret any confusion or embarrassment this may have caused.
The Journal Record tries to publish information correctly the first time, but if we fail to do so—either on the part of our staff or our sources, we will be glad to correct it.
