In "Point Austin" last week, Michael King mistakenly placed the George McGovern presidential campaign in 1968 instead of 1972. In his defense, he lived through the Sixties, so he doesn't remember them. He deeply regrets the error.
In last week's News story about the capital murder case of Joseph Nichols ("Nichols Execution: Another Texas death row travesty"), the Chronicle incorrectly reported that the victim, Claude Shaffer, was 70 at the time of his murder. Shaffer was, in fact, 64. Further, the Chronicle incorrectly reported that, according to court records, Shaffer reached for a gun when Nichols and co-defendant Willie Williams pulled out their firearms. In fact, court records reflect that Nichols believed Shaffer was reaching for a gun, prompting him to fire a single round that passed Shaffer and lodged behind a rack inside the deli. We regret the errors.
