In an Aug. 28 article titled, “Man pleads guilty to 2011 burglaries, robbery” the Empire incorrectly reported Joseph A.S. Allen was arrested a week after three home invasions were reported on Dec. 26, 2011. He was arrested on Dec. 27, 2011, a day after the invasions were reported. It was a week after a burglary on Dec. 19, 2011, that Allen has since been convicted of committing.
In an Aug. 28 brief about Permanent Fund Dividend deadlines, the Empire incorrectly reported the date PFD checks would be issued as Sept. 12. The correct date 2013 payments will be issued is Oct. 3.
