Reports of Joe Paterno's death incorrect

The Middletown Press was among the news outlets that reported tonight that former Penn State football coach Joe Paterno had died. The Press sent out text alerts and tweeted the news — based on a report from CBS Sports — before a Paterno family spokesman said the reports of his death were false. When the correction came after the initial reports, a story with the family denying Paterno's death was posted on our website. Paterno, who has lung cancer, was in serious condition tonight, his family said.

Correction in engagement announcement

CORRECTION: The initial headline in this engagement announcement said "Beverly Combe engaged to Stephen Ehlers." Combe is the mother of the bride-to-be, Stacey Ehlers, and Stephen Ehlers is the father of the bride-to-be. The correct headline should be: "Stacey Ehlers engaged to Adam Lyke."

And while the bride-to-be found the mistake funny and memorable, we deeply apologize for the error. The headline has been corrected online and the announcement will run again in the print edition of the paper.
