Sept. 30's story "Norwood Found Guilty" contained two errors. First, Louis Wann did not own the property where Ruth Bettis' body was found in 1982; his ex-wife's family owned it. Wann also did not say that David Duke was Judy Norwood's father. He said Duke was Judy Norwood's brother. Judy Norwood did have a brother named Leslie David Duke. The David Duke associated with the Ku Klux Klan is David Ernest Duke.

In last week's News story "Sparks Fly at First ACC Trustee Forum," we mistakenly referred to ACC board of trustees candidate Jeremy Story's "commitment to abstinence-only education." Story only advocates for the inclusion of abstinence in sex education. We regret the error.

Last week's edition of "Mr. Smarty Pants Knows" said that Robert Vander­voort of Corpus Christi was the only person who has ever successfully looped the loop on a bicycle. This was in error. Since Vandervoort's feat in 1901, others such as Danny MacAskill have successfully done it, too. Vandervoort may have been the first, but not the only. Mr. Smarty Pants apologizes and hopes he has closed the loop on this.

In last week's News story "Midtowne Spa Shutters After Two Decades," the Chronicle mistakenly implied that Midtowne's spas in Los Angeles and Denver were owned by Mike Zappas and would also close. Those facilities remain open and are actually owned by Martin R. Benson Trust in L.A. We regret the error.

Oops! In our May 6 issue, we erroneously listed First Plates winner Valentina's Tex Mex BBQ (7612 Brodie Ln.) in the Lower East neighborhood, when in fact the trailer is located in South Austin. Apologies to Valentina's and our readers for any confusion.

May 5, 2016

In last week's "Public Notice," the Chronicle described Political Action Committee Texans for Accountable Government as far right and funded by the Koch Brothers, neither of which is accurate. The Chronicle regrets the error.

April 21, 2016

In last week's News story "APA President Files Grievance," we said Quianna Canada was arrested on Dec. 17, 2015, when in fact she received a citation. The Chronicle regrets the error.

In last week's story "Campaign Finance Reports Shed Light on Prop 1 PAC Spending," the Chronicle misrepresented the issue of background checks for TNCs. The city itself is not currently responsible for running background checks – as the article implied – nor would it be if Prop 1 passes. Instead, the city requires national background checks to be performed by a firm approved by the city, and would continue to do so should Prop 1 fail to pass. See this week's story "Prop 1: False Advertising Claims Escalate," April 22, for more.

In the Feb. 26 print edition of “Texas Platters,” the Hallucinant Telepherique’s Absorbed by the Forest received two stars instead of the intended three. We, in fact, dug the locals’ prog rock! The Chronicle regrets the error.

December 23, 2015

In the Dec. 18 News story "'Tis the Filing Season" current South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham was incorrectly attributed as a former senator.

December 3, 2015

The print edition of last week's "Public Notice" column mistakenly stated that "'granny flats' were already allowed in every residential zoning category throughout the city." In fact, they were – and are – allowed only in SF-3, which is primarily in the central city. Council declined to act on a recommendation to expand that to the more suburban SF-2. The online version was correct.

November 5, 2015

In our Austin Film Festival preview story "Booger Red Finds the Truth in Fiction," (Screens, Oct. 30) we incorrectly identified Patrick Kelly as still being incarcerated, when it is in fact Dennis Pittman who is still in prison. The Chronicle regrets the error.
