Maurice Radford, a former commander at the Pasco County Sheriff's Office who is now running for the top job, will hold a town hall meeting at 2 p.m. Friday at the Edwinola retirement home, 14235 Edwinola Way. Radford is one of three Republicans who have filed to challenge Sheriff Chris Nocco in the GOP primary.

• Mitchell High School's hockey team won a state championship earlier this month after not having a team the year before, although there had been a hockey program a few years before that. A headline with a March 7 article incorrectly stated how long the program had existed.

• A funny thing happened with the paperwork when Doyle Hardwick turned himself into the Land O'Lakes jail to serve his 60-day sentence for misuse of 911. Hardwick, who had called a deputy to his Angus Valley home back in September because his wife wouldn't leave him alone and go to bed, arrived March 1 at the jail "intoxicated," according to jail records. Judges expect defendants to report to the jail sober. So Hardwick was booked March 1 and began serving his sentence, but the case paperwork went back to the judge because Hardwick did not report to the jail in a satisfactory way. The judge issued an arrest warrant indicating Hardwick was a "no show," and that paperwork was served March 20 on Hardwick, even though he was already in the jail. As a result of this paperwork provided by the Pasco County Sheriff's Office, a Times story that ran Thursday gave the incorrect day that Hardwick was booked at the jail, and did not include the full circumstances under which the arrest warrant was issued.
