In our August 3 Legalization Nation column, "Gay Pride Tussles With Hemp Expo," we misstated the number of people who attended last year's Oakland Pride Celebration. Attendance was estimated to be at least 30,000. That article also contained an incorrect quotation estimating Pride's size relative to other similar events. The quote should have read that Oakland Pride is "arguably the second-largest Pride event in Northern California."
In our August 3 Eco Watch, "Soundwalls Bound for Rockridge?," we incorrectly summarized resident Jon Gabel's position on the Rockridge soundwalls. His position is that along most of their routes, they are not justified by the measured noise levels.
