Because of an editing error in the Sept. 26 issue, Tire Business incorrectly identified the shop at which an employee was feared drowned after Hurricane Katrina. The shop was identified as a Wingfoot Commercial Tire Systems outlet, but the correct outlet is Commercial Tire & Retreading Inc. in Harahan, La. Commercial Tire & Retreading owner Jody Shilling said his employee was later found alive in the attic of his home. ``We're very fortunate,'' Mr. Shilling said.
