Correction

In the Wednesday, Aug. 29, edition of the Journal Record, in the editorial entitled “Jack’s plays deal or no deal; Hamilton wins,” it is stated incorrectly that Sibley Oil Company of Russellville will be building a gas station on Interstate 22’s Exit 11 in Hamilton. The station is actually going to be located on I-22’s Exit 7.
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.
To request a correction or clarification, call news editor Scott Johnson at 921-3104 or Mandye Green at 487-3278.
