Corrections and Clarifications
A summary of corrections and clarifications in the Kent Patch.
We take transparency seriously. We're committed to accuracy, to acknowledging our mistakes, and to fixing them as quickly as possible. Corrections are marked with an asterisk (*) in stories where errors have been fixed, accompanied by an editor's note in italics at the bottom of the story.
We do our best to get the facts right, but sometimes even Homer nods. If you see a factual error, tell us about it and we'll make sure we get it right.
Here are our recent mistakes:
- Correction: A story published Jan. 23 incorrectly identified a Kent woman charged with child endangering as the mother the victim.
- Correction: A story published Jan. 8, 2013, incorrectly listed the address of where members of the Portage County Drug Task Force busted a methamphetamine lab. Incorrect information had been provided by authorities.

- Clarification: A story published May 30, "Erie Street Closes Tuesday for the Summer," incorrectly stated the street would be closed to pedestrian traffic during its reconstruction. The article has been changed to correctly state pedestrian traffic will be maintained, and we've added a note to alert readers to the clarification.
