• In our “Celebrate the Music” story last week about musicians performing at the Eugene Celebration, we inadvertently got the call letters mixed up for KRVM, the radio station that was sharing the stage with Eugene Weekly. 

• In our News Briefs story last week, “A Conservative Position on Pot,” we left out the word “million” in the third paragraph.
