Correction to commissioner’s story

October 3, 2019

Last week’s Lincoln County Commissioner’s story incorrectly stated that the daycare being run on the neighboring prop­erty to the Newell prop­erty is run by the Persoon family. The daycare is ac­tually owned by Jason and Barb Brust. Also, Chair Mic VanDeVere was quoted as asking if the Persoon fam­ily had been contacted by the DNR, which should have referred to the Brust family. The ensuing sen­tence should have read “Jason Brust said that, while his opinion of a safe distance differs from the DNR, the DNR did commu­nicate with them.”
The building site owned by the Brusts was former­ly owned by the Persoon family.
