The November 23, 2018 article titled Community Discusses Possible Homeless Shelter included incorrect data concerning the number of homeless. The article originally stated that there were 200-300 homeless in the county and has been updated to reflect that there are 200-300 homeless in Longmont. Additionally, the article stated that 30 agencies were participating in this coalition. That information has been updated to reflect the following, “the coalition is made up of representatives from HOPE and other local non-profits, the City of Longmont and concerned citizens.”
The November 21, 2018 article was orginally printed with this line: “TCS has plans to open a second location in Longmont, Yuma Way, at 900 S. Hover St., Unit A.” It has since come to our attention that this information is incorrect. This article was updated on Nov. 26 to reflect that change.
The November 20, 2018 article titled Lucas meets the Trash Truck Driver included the wrong name when referring to the City of Longmont’s waste disposal deparment. That department is called Waste Services and was referred to as Waste Management in the article.
The September 13, 2018 article titled The City Of Longmont Proclaims September 17th “Live And Give Day” included the wrong date for Live and Give Day. The article has been updated to reflect that the date was actually September 12, 2018.
The September 12, 2018 article The Face of Homelessness has been amended with the following:
Luis Chavez of SVVSD provided statistics on students suffering from homelessness. Michele Wait, Longmont Senior Services Manager, provided the statistics on the elderly, and Edwina Salazar of the OUR Center and Jackie List of Safe Shelter gave the statistics on families and domestic violence.
To clarify the sentence: “In 2018, one-third of elderly people are homeless for the first time. The biggest reason for this is the increase in housing costs.” It’s not that one-third of the elderly in Longmont are homeless. It’s of the elderly that are homeless, one third are homeless for the first time.
The September 11, 2018 article titled “Morning Brief: SVVSD Hosts Innovation Center Grand Opening” was corrected and updated with the following information: Update/Correction: SVVSD is hosting hours for the community to visit the Innovation Center. The VIP Grand Opening is available by invitation only.
The August 27, 2018 article titled “Morning Brief: Community Conversation on Reducing the Risk of Gun Violence” had the incorrect date posted for the community conversation on Reducing the Risk of Gun Violence.

The June 27, 2018 article titled “Morning Brief: Longmont Startup Week Hosts Launch Party on June 29” incorrectly stated the wrong address for CoSolve. It was updated to the right address.
The Wednesday, June 20, 2018 article titled “Morning Brief: Target Fire Ruled Arson by Longmont Public Safety” was updated as it contained inaccurate statements.

The headline was also changed to “Morning Brief: Fire Breaks Out At Longmont’s Target”.
The June 17, 2018 article titled “Morning Brief: Longmont City Council Designated June 23, 2018, as “Vance Brand Airport Day” incorrectly stated that Frank Casares, owner of Mile-Hi Skydiving, was in attendance.

The Friday, April 20, 2018 article titled “Longmont Restaurant Week Preview: SAMPLES” was updated to change the name of the restaurant from Samples Bistro to SAMPLES, updated the favorite item from Korean BBQ to Korean BBQ sandwich, and updated to include the correct name of the owners: Mark and Carmen Samples.

On Saturday, December 16, 2017, an article titled “St. Vrain Valley School Board Approves Lease for APEX Home School Enhancement Program Building” was published that had inaccurate and misleading information.

The November 8, 2017, article titled “Paceline Elite Performance Gym Now Officially Open” incorrectly stated that the monthly rate was $45. $45 is Elite’s Launch Special/introductory rate for the first month. The article was updated accordingly.
