Contributed photo CORRECTIONS The editorial in the May 3 issue incorrectly said that Sarasota County Commissioner Nora Patterson always had opposed proposals for paid beach parking. Patterson was one of three commissioners who voted on May 14, 2008 to advertise for a request for proposal for a parking management firm to implement a proposed Beach Paid Parking Pilot Program at all county beaches. However, one of that majority — Commissioner Shannon Staub — changed her mind, prompting Patterson to put forward a motion on May 27, 2008, withdrawing the authorization for the request for proposals. That motion passed unanimously. In a photo in the May 3 A&E Briefs, Ricardo Rhodes was misidentified in the early edition of the News Leader in a photo from Symphony of Sorrows. That ballet was performed by Sarasota Ballet company members in 2012. % The Sarasota News Leader No-Nonsense Reporting
