Our sincere apologies…

to Karl Kramell for misspelling his name in the last edition’s article about him – we forgot an ‘l’!


The Sparks and Embers featured in the front-page photograph of the Earth Day Forum in Ormstown in the May 1 edition were in fact members of the Ormstown Girl Guides and not the Huntingdon Girl Guides. We apologize for any confusion this may have caused.
