Rene Verdon: In the Feb. 10 LATExtra section, the obituary of Rene Verdon, who in 1961 became the first professional chef to work in the White House, included a photo caption that gave an incorrect name for the restaurant he later opened in San Francisco. It was Le Trianon, as the article noted, not La Trianon.
Koch brothers: A Feb. 6 Section A article about the political influence of billionaire brothers David and Charles Koch said Rep. Mike Pompeo (R-Kan.), who represents the home district of their company Koch Industries, launched an aerospace company with investment help from a Koch subsidiary. In fact, the Koch investment occurred in 1998 and not at the time of the company's launch in 1996. Pompeo, who was elected in November, sold his interest in the firm in 2005, not last year, as The Times reported.
