Word was “used” not “sued”

Two reversed letters totally changed the meaning of a sentence in a story in the March 16 Herald.

In the Board of Aldermen story, the sentence describing Ron Inman’s comments to the board, should have read, “He also noted that the Port Authority used to get $2,500 from the city each year, as well as the city of Perryville and $5,000 from both Ste. Genevieve and Perry counties.”

Instead two letters were inverted, causing it say “sued to get” instead of “used to get.”

The New Bourbon Port Authority has never sued, nor threatened to sue, any of its supporting entities.
