On September 3, I wrote about Data Knight 365 missing the deadline for closing on the purchase of property for its proposed data center at the Commerce Park on Christiansburg Pike in Floyd County.

In the article, I said Jack Russell, chairman of the Economic Development Authority, had "gone underground" and could not be reached for comment.

I did not know at the time that Jack’s mother had died and that he was dealing with the loss of a loved one.

I have corrected the article written on September 3 to note the reason that he was unavailable for comment and both apologize and offer my condolences for his and his family’s loss.
