In last week's (Sept. 18) "Developing Stories" column, "Goodie Basket Development," Cathy Echols was incorrectly identified as a planning commissioner. Also last week, in a story on the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality decision to allow expansion of the Sunset Farms Landfill ("Landfill Will Top Mount Bonnell in Height"), we inadvertently mixed heights of various structures with their corresponding elevations (above sea level). We regret the potentially misleading visualization. Note that while the landfill's eventual elevation (approximately 795 feet) could reach higher than Mount Bonnell (785 feet), the landfill's base is at a much higher elevation (640 feet vs. 490 feet), and the landfill itself will be 155 feet tall.
