Name spelled incorrectly

The photo on the front page misidentifies state Rep. Craig Miner as Rep. Dan Carter and in the story his name is spelled wrong. It’s Miner not Minor.

It should have read: Republican State Rep. Dan Carter, far right, and Democratic State Sen. Martin Looney, far left, listen to Republican Rep. Craig Miner gives his presentation of  consensus proposals from Republican legislators on the Gun Violence Prevention Working Group at the State Capitol's Legislative Office Building March 5, 2013. Looney and Carter are co-chairmen with Looney of the 
Gun Violence Prevention Working Group.  Photo by Peter Hvizdak / New Haven Register
