• A story in Friday’s Las Vegas Review-Journal about the outlook for Lake Mead mischaracterized the impact of the shrinking lake on Mexico’s allocation of Colorado River water. Current shortage rules do not include specific cuts for Mexico. International talks now under way could address how Mexico would share in a shortage on the river, but those discussions are still in the early stages.
• In Tuesday’s Las Vegas Review-Journal, a line of text in the Valor series story was dropped. The quote from Pfc. Marc Silvestri should have read: “The guy was popping up, letting off rounds, getting down. Popping up, letting off rounds, getting down,” Silvestri said. “I stepped out and waited for him to pop back up. When he stepped out and leaned over the rock, I let a burst go and hit him in the chest. He dropped his weapon and slumped over the rock.”
