<bt>In the article "Face to Face at Last" of the Dec. 13-19 issue of the McLean Connection, U.S. Marine Brendan McBreen was incorrectly identified as Brendan Geraghty.

In the article "Crime in Great Falls," it should have stated that the for profit community e-mail network "Neighbors" is working with the Great Falls Citizens Association Crime Watch Task Group, not the non-profit Neighbors International Foundation.

Also, Reston District Station Crime Prevention Officer Katy Fernbacher was incorrectly referred to as Reston District Station Capt. Deborah Burnett.
