Miles does not hold presidency

RegisterCitizen.com on Jan. 30 linked to a post from Connecticut Devils Advocate blogger Terry Cowgill. That post addressed a rift between WHDD radio's Marshall Miles and an assistant superintendent of the Region One School District. In the link promo, Miles was listed as president of WHDD. That is incorrect. He is a co-founder of the radio station.

CORRECTION: Taco protest mayor is from East Haven, not New Haven

A previous headline on the online version of the story, "East Haven mayor deluged with 500 tacos after questionable comments," and the headline that appeared in the print edition of the Jan. 27 Register Citizen, incorrectly said, "New Haven mayor deluged with 500 tacos after questionable comments." The story refers to the mayor of East Haven, Joseph Maturo Jr., not the mayor of New Haven, John Destefano, who is a longtime advocate for the rights of immigrants.

Reports of Joe Paterno's death incorrect

The Register Citizen was among the news outlets that reported tonight that former Penn State football coach Joe Paterno had died. The Register sent out text alerts and tweeted the news — based on a report from CBS Sports — before a Paterno family spokesman said the reports of his death were false. Because the correction came quickly after the initial reports, Paterno's death was not reported on our web site. Paterno, who has lung cancer, was in serious condition tonight, his family said.
