-- An Aug. 9 A-section article on disabled veterans and soldiers training for the Paralympic Games misspelled the name of the Mologne House at Walter Reed Army Medical Center.

-- In Robert McCartney's column in the Aug. 9 Metro section, a paragraph referring to Virginia state Sen. R. Creigh Deeds, the Democratic nominee for governor, was omitted in some editions because of a production error. The missing paragraph and its lead-in should have read: "The idea isn't as wild or self-defeating as it sounds, for three reasons: It's what he's thinking. Urging a tax increase would just mean that Deeds admits to the voters before the election what he's planning to do anyway if he wins."

-- An Aug. 9 Metro article misstated the age of Christopher Myles Ford, a motorcyclist killed in an accident Aug. 8 on the Capital Beltway. He was 22.

-- An Aug. 9 Magazine article about Washington City Paper misspelled former editor Jack Shafer's last name.

-- An Aug. 7 Weekend article gave an incorrect address for Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens. The correct address is 1550 Anacostia Ave. NE.
