A story in the Tuesday, April 18, Post Independent misidentified Bill Lamont as the Garfield County Library Board chairman. The chairwoman is Paula Bush of New Castle. The Post Independent regrets the error.

In Reporter Bobby Magill’s melanoma story in Thursday’s Healthy Lifestyles section, both doctors were misidentified. Dr. Ira S. Jaffrey is a credentialed oncologist at Valley View Hospital and director of Western Slope Oncology Associates. Retired Dr. Jose Rodriguez was a Rifle plastic surgeon.

The same story should have reported that exposure to sun radiation increases four percent every 1,000 feet you climb in elevation. Mountain climbers atop Mount Elbert would be exposed to 56 percent more sun radiation than sunbathers at sea level.

In photo cutlines on page 2 of the health guide, Robby Pihl’s trainer and the New Castle Family Fitness assistant manager is Cinda Munroe.
