For the record

Air France crash: An article in the July 30 Section A on the crash of Air France Flight 447 said the plane dropped through the sky at 10,000 feet per second. It fell at a rate of 10,000 feet per minute.

Pet cemetery: A caption that accompanied an Aug. 1 article in Section A about pet owners picking cheaper services for deceased pets said the dog Skippy, who is buried at Pet Haven Cemetery & Crematory in Gardena, played television’s Lassie. In fact, Skippy was an Army K-9 Corps dog.

Teen volunteerism: A July 30 Home section article about teen volunteerism gave the wrong last name for a college counselor at Sage Hill School. He is Greg McCandless, not McKinnon. Also, Sage Hill is in Newport Coast, not Long Beach.

Yosemite trees: In some copies of the July 30 Section A, an article about a plan to fell thousands of trees in Yosemite National Park to preserve iconic views erred in saying Yosemite was set aside as the first national park. Yellowstone National Park was established in 1872, Yosemite in 1890.


“Against the Wall”: A review of the TV series “Against the Wall” in the July 30 Calendar said it was the first original cop show to air on the Lifetime channel. It is not the first.
