  • A story ran on the front page Monday, July 21 recapping the Ramsey County Commission’s Special meeting held Friday morning.
    A sentence in the story, “Olson was convinced that time had already come, Mertens disagreed placing the blame for present problems in the facility squarely on the shoulders of the previous administrator, Dick Johnson.”  had been disputed by Commissioner Bill Mertens and also by Dick Johnson.
    Both Mertens and Johnson have reviewed the video of the meeting. Mertens claimed the statement was made by another commissioner, not Mertens.
    The Journal has reviewed the video of the meeting and stands by its original coverage of what transpired at the meeting. Approximately 40 minutes into the tape it was clear that Mertens did make the statements reported in Monday’s article.
    Anyone interested in viewing the video record of the entire meeting is encouraged to do so by contacting the Ramsey County Auditor’s office.
