The staff of Ridge Corrections welcomes readers’ input, including when we don’t get the facts right. We greatly appreciate our readers, especially those who take the time to read articles so thoroughly that errors are found and reported.

In our last issue we named Bruce and Lucy Bottrell as the founders of Mother Truckers. We were wrong. Mother Truckers was founded by Michael Baronowsky, Bobby Jaffe, and Daele Merrell in 1975. Michael Baranowsky has kindly offered to set the record straight by submitting his excellent memoir, “How Mother Truckers Began.” Thanks Michael!
