In our story last week on three pending executions ("Three Executions Pending," News, April 5), we reported that a writ of habeas corpus was filed last week in support of Rigoberto Avila, who may be innocent of the 2000 death of a toddler left in his care. In fact, the writ has not yet been filed. Instead, Avila's execution date was rescheduled in order to give lawyers more time to investigate before filing the appeal.

In last week's story about the city's Office of Sustainability ("It's Not Easy Being Green," News, April 5), we reported that the idea for an independent environmental office was brought up by Paul Robbins in a brainstorming session prior to the 2010 election. The meeting actually took place before the May 2009 election.
