Mall hosting car show this weekend

The March 1, 2018, Village Vision story “Village hires Schick as new farm operator,” stated that all trustees voted Yea to approve the hiring of Chris Schick. The story should have read that Trustee David Wendt abstained, so as to not vote for an item that benefited his employer.
