The rest of the stories

Due to an error in placing advertisements, the end of some of the stories in Wednesday's Wedding Planner were cut off. The conclusions follow.

n In a story about details in wedding planning, creative table decorating was discussed. The part of the story that did not appear is: "Starched white linen dressed with chocolate linen napkins, vases of chocolate cosmos or calla lilies and dark wood ballroom chairs with white cushions is altogether modern, elegant and classic."

n In a story about local brides planning their weddings, Sarah Wilson advises couples to give themselves two days after the honeymoon before they return to work.

"You'll need a whole day to recuperate, unpack and adjust to real married life."

n In a story about saving money, a bride saved money on her bridesmaid dresses. She did not want her bridesmaids to spend $250 on a dress that they would not like.

"I was determined not to impose that on my bridesmaids, who I knew would be my sisters and his sisters." She was having six bridesmaids but bought eight dresses in case they needed extra fabric for bags or shawls.


The telephone number for The Advocate-Messenger is (859) 236-2551. It was incorrect in an article Thursday about the history book the newspaper is publishing.


Thursday's issue of the Boyle County High School Rebel Pride supplement to The Advocate-Messenger incorrectly reported that $37,500 was donated by RR Donnelley and Sons and Caterpillar, Inc. to purchase 1,100 copies of "Buffalo Dance, The Journey of York," the book all of Danville and Boyle County is encouraged to read, according to Paul Elwyn, director of communications for Boyle County Schools.

From the $37,500, Boyle County Schools spent $3,999 to purchase 1,100 copies of "Buffalo Dance," Elwyn said.

The $37,500 was donated by industry to support district literacy initiatives, Elwyn said.

Approximately $33,500 remains from donated funds to be applied to professional development training and related travel expenses, book and resource purchases, Elwyn said.
