Corrections

In Wednesday's Ranger, the page five story "Online K-12 school can be a sensible alternative for some families, teachers says" should have said that the school's service provider is Connections Academy, which is part of a company owned by Pearson. The school is a distance learning program of Big Horn County School District 1 and operates under the Wyoming Switchboard Network.

In Wednesday's Ranger, the page one story "July 29 trial set for man accused in Lander death" should have said the defendant's name is John Thomas Hereford.

In Wednesday's special section for the Fremont County Fair and Rodeo, the page two story "Aspiring rodeo queens are invited to attend clinic event" should have said "All young ladies and gents between the ages of 11 and 23 are cordially invited to attend."
