In the story, “Not seeing red” in last week’s Reporter, staff writer Laura Bollin incorrectly quoted Worth resident Rick Landry as saying the red fire hydrants in Worth are difficult to see, particularly at night. Landry actually said the fire hydrants are difficult to see because of a lack of reflective paint. The story also incorrectly stated Worth Public Works director Wayne Demonbreun spoke to trustees about the different colored caps that denote a fire hydrant’s water pressure. It was actually Landry who made those statements.
The story “Reality hits home” in last week’s Reporter quoted Evergreen Park resident Eugene Kovar as saying his grandson, Joseph, had no true friends but “only enemies” who were bad influences. While Mr. Kovar did make that statement, he meant it in the context of people who he believes did not do anything to help Joseph maintain the sobriety he sought, not in reference to people who disliked his grandson. Mr. Kovar wishes to clarify that from what he saw, everyone with whom Joseph associated loved his grandson.
