RETRACTION



Last week’s Top News Stories of 2011 in Blount County contained a couple of errors in editing. The article contained the statement that District Attorney Pamela Casey said her office was not subject to the bid law. The article should have said that Casey said the fund in question was not subject to the state bid law. At another point in the story, the issue of a vehicle purchase should have said that no funds transferred for salaries were used in the purchase and no county funds were used in paying salaries. Documentation relating to the purchase has been provided to the newspaper. We apologize for the errors.
