CORRECTION

Photo Caption Error: On the front page of the last print edition of the Suwannee Valley Times, August 17, 2016, in the 'Approaching the Primaries' story, a photo caption inadvertently stated that Ted Roush was a candidate for Columbia County Superintendent of Schools. That is incorrect. Ted Roush is a candidate for Suwannee County Superintendent of Schools. We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused.
