An article published in Sunday's editions of The Sun incorrectly stated the dates and circumstances of the founding of Hollywood, Md., and California, Md. According to "History of St. Mary's County, Maryland, 1634-1990," written by Regina Combs Hammett, the post office at Hollywood, named for a holly tree, was established in 1865, and the post office at California, named according to legend by homesick Californians, was estabished in 1874.

The Sun regrets the errors.
