Correction: Hempstead County Eyes Bank Building for Courthouse


In today's Morning Roundup enewsletter, we linked to a story in the Texarkana Gazette about the Hempstead County Quorum Court voting to negotiate with Farmers Bank & Trust of Magnolia to purchase Farmers' building in downtown Hope.

In our summary of the story, we said Farmers is being purchased by Southern Bancorp Inc., but that is incorrect.

Southern Bancorp is buying a bank with a similar name, Farmers Bank of Hamburg (Ashley County).

We apologize for the error.
