For the record

November 27, 2011

Tax issues: An article in the Nov. 20 California section about a committee of influential Californians called Think Long reported that former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger is a member of the group. Although a tax proposal by Think Long listed Schwarzenegger as a member, a spokesman for the group later said the former governor has never been a member. Additionally, the article said that the California Federation of Teachers would push a proposal being crafted by labor groups to ask voters to raise income tax rates on high earners and increase the state sales tax. The union says it would only propose raising taxes on top earners.

Officer memorial: An article about a memorial to a fallen LAPD officer in the Nov. 20 Section A included a headline that made a reference to the officer's badge number. The number cited in the headline, 37029, was the officer's serial number.

Dubuque railway: An article in the Nov. 6 Section A about the Fenelon Place Elevator, an incline railway in Dubuque, Iowa, credited an 1882 photo of the railway to the Center for Dubuque History. The photo should have been credited to the Loras College Center for Dubuque History.

Oregon death penalty: An article in the Nov. 23 Section A about Oregon Gov. John Kitzhaber's declaration of a moratorium on the death penalty said that his decision canceled the scheduled Dec. 6 execution of Gary Haugen and came a day after the Oregon Supreme Court had cleared the way for Haugen's death by legal injection. It should have said lethal injection.
