An article in yesterday's editions of The Sun about the governor's blue-ribbon commission on Pfiesteria gave incorrect information about its schedule. Meetings will be held at 7 p.m. Tuesday, 9: 30 a.m. Thursday, 9 a.m. Oct. 27 and 9 a.m. Oct. 29 in the Environmental Matters Committee chambers, Lowe House Office Building, Annapolis.

The Sun regrets the error.

Meetings will be in the Environmental Matters Committee chambers, Lowe House Office Building, in Annapolis at 7 p.m. Monday, 9: 30 a.m. Thursday, 9 p.m. Oct. 27 and 9 a.m. Oct. 29.
