A brief submitted to the Tribune and published Thursday on Page 3 stated the incorrect name of the local Minnesota National Guard unit. The Albert Lea unit is Company D. Company A is based in West St. Paul. For the record, the full name of the Albert Lea unit is D Company, 2nd Battalion, 135th Infantry Regiment.

Stories in the May 26 and 27 edition of the Tribune talked about the Albert Lea City Council voting to designate the city’s inspection department as the City Health Office so that all tattoo establishments can be inspected to make sure they comply with city ordinances.

This happened after the city received four complaint calls about one tattoo artist in town.

City Manager Victoria Simonsen clarified that most of the concerns received by the city centered around one specific tattoo artist who is no longer employed by a licensed tattoo establishment in town.

Simonsen said the reported instances occurred in places this artist was not licensed to be in.

Complaints received included people getting severe infections and people who reported that this artist was using a bathroom sink as his work station.
