For the record

May 06, 2012

CalSTRS lawsuit: An article in the May 4 LATExtra section about the California State Teachers' Retirement System suing Wal-Mart Stores Inc. executives and board members erroneously referred to the retirement system in one instance as CalPERS, rather than CalSTRS. CalPERS — the California Public Employees' Retirement System — is not involved in the lawsuit.

Orange County government building: An article in the May 5 LATExtra section about a potentially toxic government building in Orange County said that the employees union sought a restraining order to prevent soil from a nearby construction site from being disposed of. Those seeking the restraining order were former and current employees of the county's social services agency, not the union.

"Battleship": In the May 6 Calendar section, an article about the movie "Battleship" included a photo of actor Scott Porter from the TV series "Friday Night Lights." The photo should have shown Taylor Kitsch, also from "Friday Night Lights," who stars in "Battleship."

Joseph Pereira: In the May 6 Arts & Books section, an article about timpanist Joseph Pereira said that Gustavo Dudamel would be conducting Tuesday's Green Umbrella concert, which includes a new composition by Pereira. After the section went to press, Dudamel withdrew from the concert. Jeffrey Milarsky will conduct.

Expo Line map: In the April 29 California section, a map with articles about the opening of the Expo light rail line erroneously showed a portion of the route paralleling the 110 Freeway on the east. From the 23rd Street station until it turns west at Exposition Boulevard, the route runs along Flower Street, which is west of the 110.

Kings-Blues hockey: In some copies of the April 29 Sports section, a photo caption accompanying an article about the Los Angeles Kings' 3-1 playoff victory over the St. Louis Blues misspelled the last name of St. Louis player Chris Stewart as Steward.

Book festival: An article in the April 21st LATExtra section about the Los Angeles Times Book Festival misstated the title of a Stephen King novel. It is "11/22/63," not "11/22/1963."
