Correction for the printed copy of the October 2012 newsletter:

        On page three, the first PRESENTATION heading above the directions section
        of the Chestnut Fool recipe should have been the heading DIRECTIONS.

Correction for the printed copy of the September 2012 newsletter:

        On the front page, the last line of the 4th place! Out of only four entries article
        should continue as "thin slices of pear, cooked with sliced lemon in a sugar syrup-
        just because they are my Mom's favorite!"

Corrections for the printed copy of the April 2012 newsletter:

        Well, it doesn't happen often, but this typo is a doozy - and on the front page
        the Eat Local Challenge Kickoff is April 29th, not April 28th
        (apparently you can't believe everything you read!) Sorry for the confusion!

Corrections for the printed copy of the July 2008 newsletter:

        on the front page contents listing, the recipe title, "Roasted Acorn Squash with Orange"
        should be titled "Roasted Butternut Squash with Orange".

Corrections for the printed copy of the May 2008 newsletter:

        in the front page article, "How We Eat Local—Our Choices", Sweetwater Dairy
        should be listed as Sweet Grass Dairy.

        on the last page, the phone number for The Jones
        should have been listed as "352.373.6777"

Correction to the printed copy of the March 2008 newsletter:

         in the front page article, Get Fresh with Your Food!, Eric Flagg's film Gimme Green
         should have been cited as "airs on the Sundance Channel".

Correction to the printed copy of the June 2007 newsletter:

in the ingredients list for the Sauteed Green Beans with Mushrooms (on page 3), it should have been listed as 1- 8 ounce package of sliced mushrooms.
