Sorry for bungle, crossword fans
What’s a seven-letter word that describes our attempt on Friday to publish corrected answers to The New York Times Wednesday crossword puzzle? The answer: b-l-u-n-d-e-r. An editor apparently misread the puzzle date and put the wrong set of answers on the page a second time. We promise that you will find the correct answers for Wednesday’s puzzle on Page C8 today. Today’s New York Times puzzle and answers for Friday’s puzzle appear on Page C5. We’re embarrassed by our mistake and apologize for the confusion and inconvenience we caused.
* Five spending items in the Budget Watch column on Page B2 Thursday were listed under the wrong city. The city of Marysville sent $1,590 to the National League of Cities for annual dues, $31,485 to Keithly Weed Graafstra and Benson Inc. of Snohomish for legal services, $1,808 to the state Department of Ecology for a biosolids permit, $53,016 to Waste Management Northwest of Phoenix, Ariz., for collection of residential yard waste, and $150 to the Snohomish County Department of Information Services for computer classes. The items were incorrectly placed under the Lake Stevens heading. No spending for Lake Stevens was included in the Budget Watch column on Thursday.
* A lawsuit filed Thursday contends that Snohomish County and Sequoia Voting Systems illegally shield information that would prove ballots are tabulated exactly as they were cast, claiming that the data is a trade secret. A story about the lawsuit filed by two Snohomish County residents on Page B1 Friday incorrectly said the Democratic and Republican parties had a role in the process. The suit seeks to void the contract between the county and Sequoia, which makes the electronic voting machines that the county uses. Neither of the two political parties is part of the lawsuit.
