Corrections for the Week of April 30

The date when Berkeley city staffers' report on LAZ Parking will be completed and the relationship between drummer Phil Thompson and bassist Scott Thompson.

Our April 23 news story, “The Failure of Berkeley’s Living Wage Law,” erroneously stated that city staffers planned to bring their report detailing the results of their investigation into LAZ Parking, to the city council on May 6, according to Berkeley city spokesperson Matthai Chakko. Chakko has since corrected his comment, saying that a date has not yet been set for when the report will be completed.

And in our April 23 music story “The Return of Dee Bell,” we incorrectly stated that drummer Phil Thompson and bassist Scott Thompson are father and son. In fact, they are not related. 


Oakland mayoral candidate Joe Tuman said after we published our April 23 Seven Days column “The Great Contradiction of 2014” that when he said at the April 3 debate that “new revenue measures need to be in place” to help pay for adding three hundred police officers, he meant he believes the City of Oakland can grow existing tax revenues without having to necessarily increase taxes or create new ones.
