A Page 1A story on June 18 about the Minnesota Lymefighters Advocacy group should have said that Tracie Schissel was bitten by a deer tick in September 2005 and was diagnosed with Lyme disease a month later. The story said she was diagnosed a year later. Even though Schissel was treated early for the disease she still is infected by it today.
The Dispatch regrets the error.
