The Sun takes fixing the mistakes it makes almost every day very seriously. The newspaper's policy is to publish a correction as soon as possible after the discovery and confirmation of an error. The seriousness of errors varies. Most common are relatively simple "black and white" mistakes - misspelled names, historical inaccuracies and erroneous geographical locations. Some are the result of inaccurate material provided by an outside source. Others come when writers or editors fail to add vital details.

In Wednesday's column about the Georgia couple held up at gunpoint in Federal Hill, I mistakenly reported that they were scheduled to settle on the purchase of a $339,000 downtown house the day after the armed robbery. In fact, they were scheduled to submit a contract for the house; they canceled their plans to do so after the holdup. I regret the error.There's been a lot of reaction to Wednesday's column. Some of it will appear in this space next week.Pub Date: 3/28/97@

Kweisi Mfume has issued an apology for inadvertently voting in favor of an appropriations bill amendment that would fund 61 "pork barrel programs that I vehemently oppose."The apology, contained in a news release from his office, said Mfume, D-7th, had been attending a meeting to salvage the 1990 Civil Rights Act Oct. 20 and rushed to the floor of the House, where he quickly voted on the amendment.The measure supports a Senate amendment that would transfer $54 million from housing programs to an account that would fund "special purpose projects."

Correction: In a recent column, it was reported that a "twister" was sighted in the kitchen of a Baltimore home. The word should have read "toaster."We apologize for any inconvenience this error may have caused.The column also made reference to a neighbor, Floyd A. Longmeir, who had reportedly observed the "twister" from his back porch.The man's name should have read Floyd R. Longkettle. Mr. Longkettle now insists that he clearly stated to this reporter that he had seen a "toaster," possibly a four-slice General Electric.

Most of us have never caught a home run at a Major League Baseball game, which is why it's absolutely amazing that a 17-year old Orioles fan named Tim Anderson caught one in three straight games during this week's series against the White Sox at Camden Yards.
