A column Monday about the Television Critics Association awards gave the wrong first name for author Jon Winokur, who accepted a lifetime achievement award from the TCA on behalf of actor James Garner. A July 26 story on a letter to President Obama by student Stefan Johnson incorrectly stated that Johnson was the first African American Catholic to be elected student council president at Roman Catholic High School. Johnson's letter made that claim, but at least three other African American Catholics have served as president in recent years.

LAST DEC. 8, Merrill Reese looked out from the Lincoln Financial Field radio booth and, amid an unexpected deluge of snow, he could barely see a thing. The players on the field resembled stick figures; the longtime Eagles' broadcaster called the beginning of the game based on which player lined up in which slot on the field.

HER HAIR has grayed since her time on the lacrosse field sandwiched between Montgomery Avenue and Norris Street right off 15th. Her voice danced in a singsong melody when she spoke. Women lined up at 13th and Market streets at the Wanamaker Building to meet her, to thank her, just to see her up-close and personal. Tina Sloan Green had been a pioneer for African-American women and athletes for decades. From across the Crystal Tea Room in the Wanamaker Building yesterday afternoon, she resembled the late poet Maya Angelou, from the way she walked to the way she talked, to her long, black-and-white printed gown.
