In "Point Austin: Racism and Heroism" (June 26), a formatting error left unclear that one paragraph – beginning "Mother Emanuel" and ending "the history of America" – was quoting President Barack Obama's remarks on the Charleston massacre.

In "Public Notice: Be a Good Citizen" (June 26), Travis County Commissioner Gerald Daugherty's last name was misspelled.

In "Council: No More Pencils, No More Books ..." (June 26) a remark on wayfinding and smartphones made by District 10 Council Member Sheri Gallo was incorrectly attributed to D8 CM Ellen Troxclair; both CMs objected to cost of the program. And the "drainage fee" cited in the story is assigned to the Watershed Protection Department, although the charge is included on Austin Water's water and wastewater bill.
