ThisWeek Community Newspapers would like to apologize to Newark resident Jay Wollenburg, his family and friends for an error printed in a column written by sports reporter Kurtis Adams in the Oct. 24, 2010, edition of ThisWeek Licking County.

Adams erroneously reported that Wollenburg had passed away a few years ago. Adams was trying to refer to former Newark resident Mike Hannah, who died from a heart attack on July 8, 2007, at the age of 57. Wollenburg was coach of the Licking County Athletics baseball team that was runner-up at the Babe Ruth 16-18 years old World Series in 2005. Hannah followed Wollenburg as coach in 2006.
