For the record
Berkeley bake sale: An article in the Sept. 28 LATExtra section about a UC Berkeley bake sale stated that SB 185 “would not violate” Proposition 209, which banned affirmative action in public university admissions 15 years ago. Proponents of SB 185 — under which the University of California and Cal State University systems would be allowed to consider race, gender, ethnicity, national origin, geographic origin and household income, along with other relevant factors, as long as no preference is given — say it would not violate the ban. A state legal opinion has said the bill is constitutional, but others challenge that finding.
L.A. River filming: An article in the Sept. 28 Business section about the popularity of the Los Angeles River as a film backdrop said the river runs behind Culver Studios. The waterway behind the lot is Ballona Creek, which was once part of the L.A. River but is now considered a separate watershed.
