The Jan. 4 “Green Scene” contained an error concerning the economics of recycling tires. The Buncombe County landfill pays a recycling facility $78 per ton to cover processing and shipping costs. When consumers buy new tires, the state collects a $2-per-tire tax and then distributes a portion of the money to eligible counties on a per capita basis.
An article in the Jan. 18 issue of the Xpress incorrectly stated the instruments played by members of Raleigh-based metal band Corrosion of Conformity. Mike Dean is the bassist and Woody Weatherman is the guitarist.
Also in the Jan. 18 issue, “The Profiler” misidentified the album by local band Blind Boy Chocolate and the Milk Sheiks. The band released Asheville Infamous, an 11-song album, in December 2011. The EP St. James Infirmary Blues “does not, and never did, exist,” according to the band.
In the Small Bites section, we stated that Blue Water Seafood Company is open for dinner Monday through Saturday. Blue Water closes at 5 p.m. on Monday, opening for dinner Tuesday through Saturday only.
