An article in yesterday's Sun incorrectly described the time period of Howard County's goal to cut off-duty use of gasoline by police officers who are allowed to take their vehicles home. Chief Wayne Livesay expects a 10 percent reduction by the end of this month. The conservation effort will stay in effect until the chief announces otherwise. Fleet administrators will monitor the program.

In yesterday's late editions, the result of the Kim Clijsters-Venus Williams tennis match in the U.S. Open was reported incorrectly. Clijsters defeated Williams, 4-6, 7-5, 6-1.

The Liberty High School volleyball team tied a metro-area mark with its 39th consecutive victory on Tuesday, but did not tie the state record, as reported in a sports article yesterday. Northern-Calvert established that mark by winning 76 consecutive matches from 1994 to 1997.

A notice in the Sunday Carroll County section contained incorrect information on the Honey Harvest Festival to be held Sept. 11. The festival will be held from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Bear Branch Nature Center, 300 John Owings Road. Activities will include beekeeping demonstrations and related events only. There will be no breakfast brunch, children's activities, folk music or crafts. There is no admission or parking fee for the honey festival or the Carroll Carvers Festival of Carving, also scheduled at the nature center Saturday and Sunday. For information, call 410-848-2517.

A literary arts listing in the Sept. 1 LIVE section misstated a book title. It should have read Brother in the Bush: An African American's Search for Self in East Africa.

The Sun regrets the errors.
