Correction of the day

How well is MediaNews Group's Santa Cruz Sentinel covering its former hometown from the new editorial headquarters in Scotts Valley? The paper named the wrong person mayor. Twice. In two different stories on different days, both on page one.

Here is today's correction:
    Setting it Straight: Dec. 16, 2008

    Santa Cruz City Councilman Ryan Coonerty was misidentified in a story about the tree-sit at UC Santa Cruz that appeared on Page A1 of Sunday's edition and again on Page A1 Monday in a story about Shakespeare Santa Cruz. Coonerty is the immediate past mayor; the new mayor is Cynthia Mathews.

Hey, it could have been worse. The stories could have been written in Hindi or Chinese.
