Correction - Feb. 16 edition of the Fillmore County Journal "Area residents will ‘drop line’ in Lanesboro."

In the February 16 edition of the Fillmore County Journal there was an error in the article titled Area residents will ‘drop line’ in Lanesboro. The story about the Memorial Ice Fishing Tournament indicated that Jim and Becky Iverson were sponsors of the event. They are also organizers of the event.

In addition, while the correct date was included in the article, the date for the event underneath the front page photo stated that the event was Saturday, February 23, 2015. That is incorrect. The event was held Saturday, February 21, 2015.

We apologize for both errors.
