A headline and article in Thursday's Olympian and a Friday editorial about Lacey's Gateway Project for Hawks Prairie were incorrect. Editorial Page Editor Mike Oakland sets the record straight in a column on page A7 of today's Olympian.
A story about pandemic flu on page B1 in Thursday's Olympian was unclear. Avian flu is not prevalent or common in poultry in North America, but it can be found in wild birds. There have been some isolated incidents in poultry - such as in the Fraser River Valley, British Columbia - but it is not endemic or prevalent.
Lacey City Councilwoman Ann Burgman and her husband, Tim, own Woodlawn Cemetery on Mullen Road S.E. A page B1 story Friday did not name the owners. Lacey police plan to charge students from nearby Timberline High School with criminal trespass if they are caught hanging out at the cemetery or an adjacent property. Students on Saturday school were scheduled to clean up the properties today. Other students reportedly already were cleaning the area Friday.
