A headline in the Thursday, Jan. 15, Bangor Daily News incorrectly stated “Elderly say MBNA turned them away” from a shelter in Belfast. MBNA does not run the shelter. It donated the space, which is being operated as a Red Cross emergency shelter. Rick Farris, director of the Waldo County Emergency Management Agency, decided Friday that the shelter was inappropriate for people with medical needs and told an official of Bayview Manor that its elderly residents could not go to the shelter that night. By Saturday, Red Cross officials at the shelter called Bayview Manor and offered space for the elderly at the MBNA building. The NEWS apologizes for the error. —-
A photo on Page One in Thursday’s editions incorrectly identified the destination of the load of propane tanks being loaded for airlift by National Guard helicopter. The load pictured was destined for the state police transmission site on the WHCF tower. The WHCF tower also rents space to WVOM.
