Three stories in the April 5 Beacon warrant clarifications.

In the Page 2 story concerning proposed zoning changes in Walnut Township, Micro Construction LLC, owned by Rusty Mock, operates the three existing businesses on the site off Ohio 37. The businesses are roll-off containers, a stone yard and recycling. Jerry Mock, Rusty's father, as the property owner applied for the zoning change.

Several readers with considerably more knowledge of firearms pointed out several errors in our Page 3 story about two Buckeye Lake Police officersselling weapons to John Cortez. Our description of the weapons was taken directly from the investigator's report, but it contained several mistakes. First, there are no 320 round magazines for an AR15 assault rifle.However, there are 30 round magazines for the weapon that Capt. James Hanzey sold Cortez. Secondly, the .40 caliber Carr gun reported sold by OfficerJeff Vermatin is a Kahr handgun.

Life-long Millersport resident Dina Reasoner takes issue with the front page assertion that "High School Musical" is the first all-student high school production presented in more than 30 years. Reasoner was one of the crazy old aunts when high school students presented "Arsenic & Old Lace" in 1983. In 1984, students presented "You Can't Take It With You." She believes that students also did "Man From La Mancha" in 1979.
