In a Dec. 1 story, “Council tackles budget Monday,” the description of how the city of Homer pays for employee health insurance was incorrect. The city had formerly been self insured, but since 2014 the city has been insured through Premera Blue Cross for employee health care.

The Homer News regrets the error.

In an ad in the Dec. 8 paper, the gift card giveaway for North Wind Home Collection was incorrectly listed at $250. The correct amount for the gift card giveaway is $200. The Homer News regrets the error.
