A story in the June 16 edition incorrectly quoted Garfield County Sheriff Lou Vallario with regard to budgetary anomalies uncovered by the county finance department and questioned by the Board of County Commissioners.

Vallario stated that one such “anomaly” stemmed from a salary survey that prompted him to raise the starting wage of deputies to $21.60 per hour.
