In the Feb. 13 news story “Bad Omens,” Shreveport political analyst Elliott Stonecipher was quoted as criticizing Gov. Bobby Jindal’s proposal to revamp the ethics boards, particularly the lack of whistleblower protections offered in the governor’s official call for the special session. Jindal did include such language in his call, inviting bills “expanding whistleblower protection to prohibit threats.” Also, state Rep. Joe Harrison of Napoleonville was incorrectly identified as a Democrat. He is a Republican.
Three players on STM’s state championship soccer team were incorrectly listed as sophomores in last week’s issue. Rebecca Cernich, Emily Pontiff and Natalie Dronet are juniors.
