Correction: Waterford on South Hill always a part of Touchmark company

We need to modify and correct an error in a May 22 story about efforts to stop the development of 22 acres of property owned by the family of John Sonneland.

That story said that the Sonnelands chose not to sell a portion of the property to Touchmark, the national retirement company operator that bought Spokane's Waterford on South Hill retirement center, which is on the edge of the Sonneland land.

In fact, we're told Touchmark has always owned the Waterford on South Hill.  We're told its changed its name in 2011 from Waterford to Touchmark to help support the brand name recognition.

Spokeswoman Keely Barrett noted that the Waterford center was Trademark's first retirement community. Touchmark also operates the Grape Tree Community, at 2620 S Grape Tree Rd., on the South Hill.
