For the record

January 28, 2011

"Skins": An article in the Jan. 27 Calendar section about the controversy surrounding the TV show "Skins" said that MTV would probably run all 10 episodes of the series as originally planned. The network has since confirmed that all 10 episodes will air.

European property sales: Because of a production error, part of a sentence was omitted from the Column One article that appeared in the Jan. 26 Section A, dealing with the sale of historic properties by European nations. It should have read, referring to the 18th century Hotel de Seignelay in Paris: "With gold molding on its salon walls and a tombstone for Marie Antoinette's dog in the back garden, the mansion is one of hundreds of buildings for sale or long-term lease by the French government."

Horse racing: Liam Durbin's Santa Anita handicap in the Jan. 27 Sports section mistakenly listed his charts for Jan. 28 races at Tampa Bay Downs in Florida.

"The King's Speech": An article in the Jan. 26 Calendar section about efforts by executive producer Harvey Weinstein to broaden the audience for "The King's Speech," including considering alterations to win the film a lower rating, said Weinstein last year unsuccessfully appealed the Motion Picture Assn. of America's decision to give the film an R rating. Weinstein Co. protested but did not appeal.

Chinese investment: An article in the Jan. 25 Business section reported on a deal by Riverside firm MVP RV Inc. to build recreational vehicles for export to China. Winston Chung, the Chinese entrepreneur who struck the export deal with MVP RV and is its majority owner, was quoted as saying that gasoline-powered RVs will be the firm's focus. In fact, as the article noted elsewhere, the vehicles covered by the deal are diesel-powered.

Apartment project: In the Jan. 26 LATExtra section, a brief news item about a Los Angeles County supervisors decision that would permit the construction of an apartment complex north of Los Angeles International Airport incorrectly identified some of the opponents of the project. Groups listed in county documents as the Del Aire Homeowners Assn. and the Del Aire Neighborhood Council are, in fact, called the Del Rey Homeowners Assn. and the Del Rey Neighborhood Council.

MLK Day menu: In the Jan. 27 LATExtra section, an article on complaints about a UC Irvine dining hall's menu of fried chicken and waffles on Martin Luther King Day incorrectly referred to "the late Dick Gregory." Gregory, 78, remains active as a commentator and performer.
