· A June 13 Metro article misstated the number of students at Severna Park High School accused of cheating in May on an Advanced Placement exam in U.S. history. More than 40 students at the Anne Arundel County school were asked to retake the exam because of alleged testing irregularities. Three students involved in the incident were not allowed to retake it.

· A June 13 Food article incorrectly said that avocados are high in LDL, or "bad" cholesterol. Avocados contain no LDL but are rich in monounsaturated fat, which is considered more healthful than saturated fat.

· A photo caption with a June 13 Style article misidentified the Fox News host pictured talking to Dan Rather. It was David Asman, not Neil Cavuto.

· A June 10 Metro article about a Korean pavilion, bell and garden planned for a park in Vienna included an artist's conceptual rendering of the project. The caption should have noted that the rendering overlaid an image of a bell on a photograph of a Korean pavilion at VanDusen Botanical Garden in Vancouver, which does not have a bell. Also, the illustration was incorrectly credited; it was provided by VanDusen Botanical Garden.

· A June 9 Metro article misidentified a Prince George's County police officer involved in a Beltway traffic accident on May 30. He is Scott Campbell, not Steve Campbell.
