  1. Yesterday's headline story explaining Article 4 on the annual Town Meeting warrant was not included in the newsletter. It is republished in the "More Local Coverage" section below.
  2. A March 31 article on the tax impact of building a new Andover High School misstated the interest-adjusted costs of building Gillette Stadium and TD Garden. Those references have been removed from this article.
