ATF: An article in the Aug. 16 LATExtra section reported that the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives had promoted three field supervisors of a controversial gun-trafficking surveillance operation to management positions at ATF headquarters in Washington. The ATF said in a statement Aug. 17 that the three supervisors were "laterally transferred" from operational duties into administrative roles, and were not promoted.

Eisa Davis: An article in the Aug. 14 Arts & Books section about actress-playwright Eisa Davis said her mother Fania worked as a civil rights lawyer ensuring such things as wheelchair-accessible bathrooms and public recycling bins. In fact, her work focused on the movements for racial and women's equality, anti-apartheid and peace.

Safety net: An article in the July 31 California section about cuts to health and social services said that Medi-Cal beneficiaries are being charged co-payments of $5 for prescriptions, $50 for emergency room visits and up to $200 for hospital stays. No co-payment is currently required; the state is waiting for federal approval to begin charging.

NASA art show: In the Arts & Books section elsewhere in this edition, an article about the "NASA/ART" exhibition said that Edward Hooper was among the artists who backed out of participating in the NASA Art Program. The artist was Edward Hopper. The error was detected after the section went to press.

Jeff Bridges: An article in the Aug. 15 Calendar section about actor Jeff Bridges and his new album misspelled the last name of a musician with whom Bridges had played. He was the late Stephen Bruton, not Brouton.
