In last week's article in the Newcomerstown News regarding the USS Radford National Naval Museum leaving Newcomerstown, it was inaccurately reported that the move to relocate the museum elsewhere was "in the works" for the past few years.
Instead, the late Vane S. Scott Jr. was continuing to promote the Newcomerstown museums even in his ill health, Scott's son Vane S. "Bud" Scott III said. He said his father was having brochures printed for the museums and working on a placard for the "Welcome to Newcomerstown" sign for the museums.
As far as the exact relocation plans for the Radford museum, calls to Charles A. "Chuck" Parsons, USS Radford Association president, were not returned.
The News regrets the error.
