In Thursday's edition, The Observer incorrectly stated that Julie Howell, 24, 1112 Tillman Road, was charged with possession of cocaine on Tuesday. Howell was detained for questioning but was released without being charged. The Observer regrets the error.
In a recent article, The Observer incorrectly attributed a statement to the Rev. Jerry Clark, Chicago manager of church relations and special events for the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews, regarding a Christian mission group venturing to Israel even though there is a law against proselytizing. That portion of the statement was actually made by Dr. Sam Whatley, husband to one of the group's members.
Additionally, Clark was quoted in the article as saying that Palestinians and Israelis were comfortable with the group's mission. He clarified later that was his assumption, because the group was allowed into schools in both Jerusalem and Bethlehem.
The Observer regrets the errors.
