In the article titled “P’ville Alumni, School District Retirees Honored at Alumni Plaza Ceremony” in the September 28-October 4 issue, it was incorrectly reported that last year’s Pleasantville High School valedictorian was a member of the same Lee family that had all six of its members graduate from the school.

In last week’s article on lawyer Dan Schorr’s debut novel, the name of the book was incorrect. The correct title is “Final Table: A Novel.”

The Examiner regrets the errors.

In last week’s article on the proposed New Castle Form Based Code, one of the residents who spoke at the Sept. 21, Warren Gottlieb was incorrectly identified as the New Castle Republican Committee chairman. He is a former committee chairman. The Examiner regrets the error.

In last week’s edition, an article headlined “A New Home for Westchester’s Rescued Animals in Briarcliff” incorrectly stated that the new SPCA building was funded by $6.5 million from the New York State Agriculture and Markets through the Companion Animal Capital Fund. The new center was paid for by a $500,000 grant from New York State Agriculture and Markets and the remaining $8 million was contributed by SPCA donors and foundations. The Examiner regrets the error.

A Note to Readers

In last week’s issue, it was brought to our attention that a letter to the editor was published regarding an issue related to New Castle’s proposed Form Based Code that was apparently signed by someone using a pseudonym. The Examiner has prided itself since its inception 14 years ago to not only contain accurate information in our articles but also to follow a process that helps verify the identities of writers of letters to the editor and guest editorials for consideration. Last week, that process was not followed, and as a result, a letter that was not verified appeared in print. While this is the first time we’ve seemingly been deceived in this way as a result of our failing, such lapses in our systems must not occur regardless of circumstances. The Examiner will ensure our process is followed moving forward. We continue to look forward to hearing from readers on topics they are passionate about.

In last week’s Sept. 7-13 edition, an article headlined “Gate of Heaven Solar Farm Rejected by Mt. Pleasant Planning Board” incorrectly stated that the PILOT payment (in lieu of taxes) to the town of Mt. Pleasant would be about $40,000 a year for the duration of the lease, 25 years. The PILOT payment would be about $50,000 a year for 25 years. 

Also, in last week’s Sept. 7-13 edition, an article headlined, “Catholic Archdiocese Installing Rooftop Solar Array on Closed Briarcliff School,” incorrectly states that ConEd is the developer of the solar system at St. Theresa. Ecology is the developer of the solar system at St. Theresa. Also, the article incorrectly stated that ConEd is the developer of the storage battery at St. Augustine in Ossining. The battery developer is Borego. We regret the errors.

In last week’s article on The Nicholas Center’s expansion in Pleasantville, it was incorrectly reported that the center and its partner organization, Spectrum Designs, will both be awarded $48 million through workforce development grants.
