Route 66 News Correction

Please note this correction from the Winter, 2012 issue if The 66 News: Photos used in the story entitled, "Slovenian Row: Reminiscences of an Ethnic Community," should have been captioned with the following: Photos 1 & 3 - "Photo ©2011 by Maria R. Traska; all rights reserved." Photo 3 caption should read "circa 1939." Photo 4 - Photo ©2011 by Joseph D. Kubal; all rights reserved." Also, the third paragraph, second sentence should have read, "Most immigrated through New York and moved to and were concentrated in the Chicago-Joliet region, around greater Cleveland, Ohio; Milwaukee, Wisconsin; and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, northern Minnesota, Michigan and Colorado. Smaller pockets of Slovenes are scattered elsewhere throughout the U.S. including southern California, Arizona, and throughout Florida."
