Correction: Because of an editing error, a headline on an item in the New England News in brief column in early editions of yesterday's City & Region section incorrectly said that a Marstons Mills woman was bitten by a rabid raccoon in her yard. The woman was bitten by a rabid coyote.

Correction: The Rock Notes column in yesterday's Weekend section incorrectly said that composer/musicians Steve Reich and Philip Glass would perform at Jordan Hall last night. Their music was slated to be performed by the orchestra, but Reich and Glass were not scheduled to play.

Correction: Because of an editing error, a story in Thursday's City & Region section on a Catholic priest charged with soliciting sex from a 12-year-old girl and her mother incorrectly stated that police had arrested the Swampscott priest. The Rev. Jerome Gillespie was summonsed to court for his arraignment.

Correction: Because of reporting errors, Wednesday's Perspectives column incorrectly stated that the rectangular frames that make up "The Gates" public-art project are made of steel. The gates themselves are vinyl. In addition, the column incorrectly located a memorabilia sales stand. It's at the corner of Fifth Avenue and Central Park South.

Correction: Because of a reporting error, a story in the Feb. 8 City & Region section on potential gubernatorial candidate Deval Patrick's role at the Coca-Cola Co. mischaracterized a judge's decision in a case involving the company. Coca Cola was dismissed as a defendant in a case when a judge determined that the company did not have significant controlling interest in a Colombian bottling plant where alleged labor strife had occurred.

Correction: Because of a reporting error, the Money Makeover column in the Feb. 6 Business & Money section incorrectly characterized an aspect of Polaroid Corp.'s employee stock program. Employees received company stock through their employee stock ownership plan.
