Cadets hold annual inspection

River Hebert -

This week I would like to start our column with a Correction from last week's story entitled "Dancers Win Silver."

I would like to take this opportunity to apologize to Jessica White. In the story, I wrote that Jessica was the aunt of one of the dancers; it should have read "Jessica White, sister to one of the dancers." Sorry for the mix-up, Jessica.
