CORRECTION In an article in Feather Publishing's Health, Mind and Body section published Jan. 7, it was incorrectly reported that Wendy Weight is the owner of Lupines Natural Foods in Greenville. Weight contacted the paper and said, "I am but a humble associate who works three hours one day of the week. "Lanis (LeBaron) is the woman who dreamed, conceived, labored and toiled to create Lupines. And she's the woman who's devoted every waking hour of every day to its success." Feather Publishing regrets making the error.
