Doo Dah Parade: An article in Monday's LATExtra section about the move of the Doo Dah Parade to the Lamanda Park neighborhood of Pasadena said the event had never strayed from Old Town Pasadena. Although parade organizers have said this year's event would be the first outside that area, a scaled-back parade in 1993 was held at City Hall Plaza, several blocks east of the Old Pasadena business improvement district.

Amber Dubois case: An article in Wednesday's LATExtra section about John Albert Gardner III, the suspect in the Amber Dubois murder case, incorrectly reported that her skeletal remains were discovered Sunday. They were found Saturday.

"The Wizard of Oz": An article in Thursday's Calendar about proposals to remake "The Wizard of Oz" said that Temple Hill Entertainment envisions a film franchise that would adapt as many as 22 books about the Land of Oz written by L. Frank Baum. Baum wrote 14 Oz books; the remaining eight are books written about the Land of Oz by other authors after Baum's death that were based on the author's characters.

Home Savings: The Home section's Lost L.A. column on Saturday about artwork at Home Savings of America branches said that Washington Mutual acquired Home Savings in 1992. The correct year was 1998.
