Correction of the Month: (Category: Misquote)

A quotation by Bass Lake Elementary assistant vice-principal Juliana Van Clemens was incorrectly transcribed in a recent Beacon story about the retirement of a longtime school district employee.

Van Clemens had quipped, during a lighthearted exchange, “I might retire someday myself,” not “I might fire somebody myself,” as was erroneously written. The Beacon regrets that the writer made the error, and the writer regrets it even more.
