Our latest batch

Photographer Martha Grenon, who has a much better memory than us, pointed out the following errors in our anniversary issue (Vol. 26, No. 1, Sept. 8, 2006): 1) The Great Golfcart Rustling occurred in the fall of 1985, not '84. 2) The photo of Bud Shrake was taken by Andrew Long. 3) The logo for Michael Corcoran's "Don't You Start Me Talkin'" column was designed by Paul Sabal. Our apologies to all misidentified.

Last week, in Diana Welch's story about AWOL soldier Mark Wilkerson, Stars and Stripes is misidentified as a "military magazine." As the Mideast bureau chief of the paper informed us, "Stars and Stripes is a daily, editorially independent newspaper, not a magazine." Also, in last week's election coverage, one item is headlined "Teachers Push Cohen, Cops Back Wong." Actually, as the name of the organization supporting Ellen Cohen implies, the Texas Parent PAC is not a teachers' organization, but is better described as a "pro-public-education" group. Lastly, a Sept. 1 "Naked City" news item citing new data from the U.S. Census Bureau incorrectly states that Travis County's poverty rate was about 26% in 2005. It was actually 15.7%. The Chronicle regrets the errors.
