A reference in an article yesterday about food companies' use of trans fat oils misidentified the fast food chain that was sued by a retired Maryland doctor and has spent two years searching for an alternative fat. It should have said KFC.

An article in the Maryland section yesterday gave an incomplete description of the political background of Republican Baltimore County Council candidate Wayne M. Skinner. In addition to being elected to the council in 1998 and serving on the Democratic Central Committee, he ran unsuccessfully for County Council in 1986.

In the Sports Digest yesterday, former Boys' Latin lacrosse player Cavendish Darrell was reported as having won a gold medal with the U.S. lacrosse team in the 1932 Olympics. Lacrosse was only a demonstration sport in 1932.

An article in Saturday's sports section stated that when former Gilman football player Victor Abiamiri was being recruited, he was given a video game system by a University of Maryland assistant coach. The assistant coach gave cash to Abiamiri after the player told him he wanted a game system.

The Sun regrets the errors.
