An article on Page 1B of some editions yesterday said that climbing the greased Herndon Monument is a senior class spring rite at the Naval Academy. In fact, the tradition applies to the "plebe" class of freshmen at the Academy.

A headline in yesterday's Sports section incorrectly stated that the New England Patriots' Deion Branch scored a touchdown in the Super Bowl.

In some editions yesterday, a Sun News Digest item about a Loyola College men's basketball game misspelled the name of Loyola player Linton Hinds.

An article in yesterday's Sports section incorrectly reported that one of the players named as a steroid user in Jose Canseco's coming book was Jose Gonzalez. The player named actually is Juan Gonzalez.

An article in Sunday's editions about a General Assembly bill that would require state senate confirmation of Baltimore County school board appointments misstated how school board members in Baltimore City and in Prince George's County are appointed. The Baltimore mayor makes joint appointments with the governor for the city school board, and the Prince George's county executive makes joint appointments with the governor for that county's board. In both cases, appointments are based on nominations submitted by the state Board of Education.

An article in Sunday's Business section incorrectly stated the age a child must be for parents to receive the child tax credit. The child must be under 17 at the close of the tax year.

The Sun regrets the errors.
