Due to a reporter's error, the comparative magnitude of the tailings facility at Kennecott Greens Creek Mine was wrong in the first line of a front page story Sunday. The 40-acre facility is one of the smallest in the United States. Even if it doubles in size, as Kennecott Greens Creek Mine Co.
On a recent Sunday, an article atop the front page of the Empire contained an error in the first sentence. Had the error involved spelling, grammar or punctuation, I would not be writing about it here. The error was one of fact.
New ride: About 150 Greens Creek miners will commute to work by a new boat starting Wednesday. The Alaskan Explorer, shown on the right at the Greens Creek dock in Auke Bay, will replace the Alaskan Dream.
