An article in Wednesday's editions of The Augusta Chronicle erroneously said the time Chief Deputy Ronald Strength has been in the Richmond County Sheriff's Department. He is a 24-year veteran of the department.
Also, an article in Wednesday's editions should have said that the state funding for school maintenance and operations lags behind what it actually costs school districts to maintain facilities. This is a statewide problem and not unique to Columbia County.
The Chronicle regrets the errors.
