I apologize for mistakenly stating that tourism was the “area’s top industry” (Aug. 3). That was an error on my part that shouldn’t have made it to the final draft.

As per my numbers being inaccurate, however, I disagree.

A 2015 Dean Runyan Travel Impact Report for Wallowa County cites $27.6 million in destination travel spending and another 0.9 million in other travel, bringing the actual total to $28.4 million. Please give them a call @ 503.226.2973 or visit http://tinyurl.com/l429voj.

I sincerely hope my misworded sentence does not further detract from the original point of Joseph’s housing issues, nor in any way minimalize the struggle of people from all industries in securing stable housing within our small communities.
