Mea culpa - my last mistake of 2009

PICS OF BOOM TRUCK 006 You’d think after living here and writing about the area for more than 10 years, I’d be able to keep the names of cities straight.

But you’d be wrong, if you thought that.

Case in point, I mixed-up Kenyon for Kasson in my Dec. 31 column.

The Kenyon Lumber Mart, also known as KLM, closed Nov. 24 and is for sale.

Meanwhile, the Kasson Arrow Building Center is open, is renovating its showroom and is adding cabinets to its offerings.Prior to becoming an Arrow Building Center,  the Kasson business was known as a lumber mart.

Hence, my goof-up not only was wrong, but it confused people who still think of the Kasson center by its pre-2002 name.

The K with a closed lumber yard is Kenyon. The K with an open lumber yard is Kasson.

I’m sorry for the error. Luckily it was still in 2009, so 2010 is error-free … for the moment, at least.

There is no space between the word "offerings." and "Prior" in the above paragraph, hence your first documented mistake of 2010. Yay! Doesn't it feel better to just get that over with?

LoL!

Thanks for helping me out with that OwQuit. Heh
