Foster wasn’t involved with emergency vehicle

To the editor:

I think there needs to be a clarification in the editorial regarding Lee Foster being of assistance to my father, Roland Patnode, in his customization of his emergency response vehicle. In no way was Mr. Foster in any way a part of, or collaborated with my father on this project.

Thank you.

The Enterprise regrets the error of saying, in the Feb. 2 editorial, that Lee Foster helped Roland Patnode convert a school bus into a mobile radio center. Mr. Foster on Friday told us he had little to do with it. Neither he nor the Winter Carnival Committee gave us false information; we made the false assumption from reading a 2010 Enterprise article on the radio bus in which Mr. Foster was quoted as an amateur radio operator and pictured helping Mr. Patnode set up an antenna.
