For the record

UC Irvine flag controversy: A column in the March 13 California section about the controversy over displaying the American flag in one office at UC Irvine misidentified UCI Vice Chancellor Thomas Parham as UC Vice Chancellor Robert Parham. 

Red light cameras: In the March 8 California section, a photo with an article about a bill to ban red light cameras in the state showed a red light camera at La Brea Avenue and Santa Monica Boulevard, which the caption said was in Los Angeles. The intersection is in West Hollywood. 

Kendrick Lamar: In the Arts & Books section elsewhere in this edition, an article about rapper Kendrick Lamar says that his new album will be called "Untitled." The title has been changed to "To Pimp a Butterfly." The change was made after the section was printed. 

Santa Anita Handicap: In the March 8 Sports section, a column about the Santa Anita Handicap said that winner Shared Belief had been victorious for the ninth time in 10 outings. In fact, it was Shared Belief's 10th victory in 11 races. 

Lillian Nakano: In the March 8 California section, the obituary of Lillian Nakano, an activist who sought redress for fellow Japanese Americans interned during World War II, said that she had died Saturday. She died on Saturday, Feb. 28, not March 7. 

Sylvia Kunin: In the March 8 California section, the obituary of Sylvia Kunin, who was an activist for young classical music performers, identified Misha Dichter as a violinist. He is a pianist. 

"Wrecking Crew" film: A March 8 Arts & Books section article on "The Wrecking Crew!" documentary about Los Angeles studio musicians stated that one of guitarist Tommy Tedesco's well-known parts was the acoustic guitar intro on the Mamas & the Papas' "California Dreamin'." Tedesco did not play in that recording session. Also, keyboard player Don Randi was misidentified as a horn player. 

Placerville photos: In the March 8 Travel section, several images accompanying an article about Placerville, Calif., were wrongly credited to Tom Bentley. The photos of the pizza, waffles and cheese shop should have been credited to Alice Bourget.
