Correction

Posted in All Features

In the December 15 issue of the Fillmore County Journal, there was an error in The true victims of the nanny state: Unintended consequences of liberal policies commentary. The error was located in the statistics regarding the illegitimate births, on the African Americans line. It was incorrectly stated that African Americans illegitimate birth rate was 0%. The correct percentages should read:

•Asians/Pacific Islanders 17%

•Whites 30%

•American Indians/

Alaska Natives 67%

•Aftican Americans 70%

We apologize for the error.
