Video gaming task force story contained mistake

A story in Friday’s edition of the New Haven Register incorrectly reported the manner in which a legislative task force studying video gambling was formed. Lawmakers representing the three towns that contain off-track betting sites formed the task force to study the idea. There was no bill passed to do so.

Vote count will be at 200 Orange St. in New Haven

A Tuesday story on the random poll audit to be held Wednesday on the results of the Democratic mayoral primary in Ward 21 gave an incorrect location for the noon vote count.

The count will take place at the 200 Orange St.

The public is invited to attend when the registrar of voters does a manual audit to ensure that the optical scan voting tabulators properly recorded all votes during the Sept. 10 primary in that ward.
This is part of a statewide check as randomly chosen by the secretary of the state’s office.

Spokesman misidentified

The initial version of a story about what would happen if a storm with the force of the Hurricane of 1938 hit today, Scott DeVico, spokesman for the state Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection, was incorrectly identified.

Incorrect photos

At least two 1950s-era storm photos were mistakenly included in a photo gallery on the Hurricane of 1938. The photos, which showed cars from the 1950s, have been removed. The original archived photos did not have caption information that included dates and were inadvertently placed in a 1938 photos folder.

Tracey Thurman survived attack

An earlier version of a column by Norm Pattis this morning, which also appeared in the New Haven Register's print edition, incorrectly stated that Buck Thurman stabbed his wife Tracey Thurman to death in Torrington in 1983 in a case that led to modern domestic violence laws. Tracey Thurman was not killed in that attack and is still alive today.
