Articles in Sunday's and yesterday's editions of The Sun about the state prosecutor's investigation of Mayor Sheila Dixon misspelled the name of attorney Gerard P. Martin.

Making $100 monthly payments on $5,000 worth of credit card debt with a 12 percent interest rate would take about 70 months to pay in full. That amounts to about $1,976 in interest. An article in Sunday's Money & Life section headlined "Shoring up your credit" was incorrect.

An article in Friday's editions about Dr. Benjamin S. Carson Sr. receiving a Presidential Medal of Freedom incorrectly credited Dr. Denton Cooley, a previous medal recipient, with performing the world's first heart transplant. The first successful procedure was completed by Dr. Christiaan Barnard of South Africa.

An article about pet detectives in Monday's editions incorrectly referred to ferrets as rodents. Ferrets are in the weasel family.

The Sun regrets the errors.
