Corrections

• In a Sunday story about medical marijuana advocate Alfred Robinson, it was defense attorney Michael Minardi who argued his client had a First Amendment right to wear his pot shirt to court. In that same exchange, Circuit Judge William Webb was speaking to the defense attorney when he said he could hold Robinson in contempt of court. Minardi ended the exchange by saying "okay." The story Sunday incorrectly attributed those statements.

• The Healthy Start Coalition of Pasco's board of directors will meet from 9 to 11 a.m. Thursday in conference room C at Medical Center of Trinity, 9330 State Road 54, Trinity. An item in Sunday's Pasco Times gave an incorrect location.
