In Monday's story "Chamber learns about JEEP" and the March 14 story "Chamber dues down $7,000," the $45,000 accommodations tax grant that the Kershaw County Chamber of Commerce received was incorrectly listed as being from the city of Camden. The $45,000 accommodations tax grant was from a Kershaw County local accommodations fund. The C-I regrets the error.
