An item in the Business Notes in yesterday's Howard County edition of The Sun incorrectly stated that the HomePlace store in Ellicott City's Long Gate Shopping Center is associated with another business.

The Sun regrets the error.

Lincoln Technical Institute holds ceremony for campus

Lincoln Technical Institute recently opened its newest training facility on Snowden River Parkway in Columbia.

Howard County Executive Charles I. Ecker joined Lincoln's executive director Elliott "Brad" Jones Sr. for a ceremonial ribbon cutting, and greeted students as they arrived for their first day of classes at the new campus.

The 73,500-square-foot facility will provide training in automotive technology and heating, air conditioning and refrigeration.

The institute, which was founded in 1946 in Newark, N.J., to train World War II veterans, operates 13 business and technical training facilities in six states.

More than 500 students are enrolled at the Columbia campus, which offers day and evening classes. John McDonough,the Columbia-based custom-homebuilder who closed the business that bore his name and declared bankruptcy in 1994, is assuming the presidency of Nantucket Island Homes, where he worked as a construction manager after the failure of his company. McDonough, who started as a laborer to help pay college expenses, is a partner with John Liparini and Hugh Cole in Nantucket Island Homes. The company expects to build between 25 and 40 homes at Pointer's Run, Hobbit's Glen, Marshalee Estates and Kendall Ridge this year.
