Corrections and Clarifications

A story in Carolina Living on Sunday gave an incorrect town for the Showmars at 6850 Matthews-Mint Hill Road. It is in Mint Hill.

A story about mobile classrooms in Monday's Local and State section incorrectly reported that Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools isn't buying any new mobiles for this school year. CMS has 48 new mobile classrooms this year, but doesn't anticipate needing to buy more for the 2009-10 or the 2010-11 school year.

In Tuesday's Business section, a Q&A on real estate appraisals from The Associated Press reported borrowers can help ensure they receive a fair property appraisal by not allowing a lender to pick their real estate appraiser. With few exceptions, mortgage originators order their own property appraisals before approving a loan. There is, however, nothing preventing consumers from hiring their own appraiser to provide an independent assessment of a property's value.
