Corrections for the Week of October 9

Quote from Maurice Weeks and name of ice cream maker.

Our October 2 news story, “Who’s Jacking Up Housing Prices in West Oakland?,” mistakenly attributed two quotes to Margaretta Lin, special projects director in the City of Oakland’s Community and Economic Development Agency. It was actually Maurice Weeks, campaign coordinator for Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment, who said: “[The activity of investors in Oakland’s housing market is] transferring homes where people have lived a long time, raised families, been part of the community, to younger folks, mostly white.” Weeks also said “[investors are] taking advantage of the [housing] crisis to accelerate gentrification.”

In our October 9 What the Fork column, “Oasis Food Market Plots a New Restaurant,” we misspelled the last name of ice cream maker Kim Byers.
