Stan­ley We­ston: In the May 11 Cal­i­for­nia sec­tion, the obit­u­ary of li­cens­ing agent Stan­ley We­ston re­ferred to him as the per­son who con­ceived of G.I. Joe, the ac­tion fig­ure doll. Toy in­ven­tor Lawrence Reiner, who died in 2001, also played a role in its cre­ation and, like We­ston, was com­pen­sated for his ef­forts. Their fam­i­lies dis­agree on the level of each man’s in­volve­ment.

Hot Prop­erty: In the June 10 edi­tion of Hot Prop­erty, a pho­to­graph ac­com­pa­ny­ing an ar­ti­cle about Kevin Cost­ner’s Carpin­te­ria es­tate did not show the ac­tor’s prop­erty as the cap­tion in­di­cated. The prop­erty pic­tured was a Carpin­te­ria res­i­dence owned by mu­si­cian Mike Dirnt.
