Paul Martinka’s letter to the editor in Saturday’s Herald-Zeitung contained a typographical error. The letter should have read, ‘“Mayor Williams’ reaction to this was :o make light of this betrayal of trust of council and the people...” The headline also was changed and should have read, ‘Betrayal of trust.”
The Herald-Zeitung regrets the errors and apologizes for any inconvenience.
