Correction Made to Article in Sept. 8 Issue, Page Eight
A Sept. 8 story on the Over the Mountain elections stated incorrectly that the Vestavia Hills school board voted in 2015 to ban use of the Confederate flag. In fact, the board voted in the late 1990s to remove the flag from the high school’s logo. The board has attempted to discourage unofficial use of the symbol over the years, but those efforts haven’t been completely successful. Its vote in July 2015 was to sideline the Southern colonel as mascot for the high school.
