A news brief published May 24, “Edgartown selectmen race the clock on tax rate,” reported incorrectly the date for the book launch of “The Chappy Ferry Book” at the Old Sculpin Gallery. The correct date is July 1, not June 1. Also, the correct spelling of the principal assessor’s name is Jo-Ann Resendes.
A news brief published May 24, “Oak Bluffs selectmen favor bank plans for former Oyster Bar,” incorrectly described the change in bar hours. Over the holiday weekend only, doors closed and no one was allowed to enter after 1:30 am. The bars were allowed to close at 2 am.
Selectmen also changed permanent bar hours. Previously, doors were closed at 12:30 am. Now, doors will be closed at 1 am, and closing time will remain the same, 1:30 am.
