Code Red Alert issued for escaped inmate near Bemidji


In last week's Blackduck American, several names were inadvertently left off the cutline for speech. Members left out were Michalea Holmgren, Shannon Budde, Alex Howard, Maile Olson and Mariah Bremer.

There was also a misunderstanding in the speech story that accompanied the photo.

The story related that speech coach Jennifer Parker had been a state speech champion twice for Blackduck and that was incorrect.

Parker did go to state in 1976 and 1979 but she placed seventh. Blackduck has had only two state speech champions and they are Abe Fitch in 1988 and Annie Haws in 2008.

We are sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.
