Clearing the record

Posted: June 21, 2012

An obituary Wednesday for former Philadelphia Police Commissioner Kevin Tucker wrongly described a part of his background. Mr. Tucker worked as a Rahway, N.J., police officer while in college. Also, the family has suggested contributions to the Albert R. Taxin Brain Tumor Research Center of the Wistar Institute, 3601 Spruce St., Suite 242, Philadelphia 19104. The director of the institute is Dr. Russel E. Kaufman.

A story Wednesday about a bill to transfer oversight of church-based day-care facilities from the Pennsylvania Department of Public Welfare to the Department of Education misstated the response of DPW spokesperson Cary Miller when asked about Gov. Corbett's position on the legislation. Miller provided a statement: "This administration supports religious freedom in curriculum for all programs (schools, child care, etc.) but the governor believes it is also important to ensure the health and safety of our children. This is why we have health and safety regulations in place for the protection of our children in child care settings. We will continue to work with the General Assembly and stakeholders on this issue."

A list Tuesday of abortion clinics that have been provisionally licensed under a new Pennsylvania law omitted the Reproductive Health and Counseling Center in Chester, which has been given a six-month license.
