Fowle nomination

In a page B3 story Wednesday about a hearing on the nomination of District Attorney Evert Fowle to become a district court judge, the headline misstated the status of his nomination. The Legislature’s Judiciary Committee endorsed the nomination unanimously, but Fowle still is awaiting Senate confirmation. His last name was also misspelled in the headline and the story. They were editing errors.

State of the State

In Wednesday’s story about Gov. Paul LePage’s State of the State address, the governor was quoted incorrectly on page A4 about his proposal to cut $221 million from health and human services to close a budget gap. The governor said, “My administration did not create this problem and did not invent it.”

Gas pipeline plan

In a story on page B1 Wednesday, a statement by Richard Silkman of Kennebec Valley Gas Co. should have reported that according to Silkman, the company’s pipeline project could not be built without a tax increment financing agreement. It was a reporter’s error.
