>> U.S. Department of Defense rules prohibit state Rep. Tulsi Gabbard Tamayo from running for re-election. A story on Page A3 in yesterday's paper incorrectly stated that the rules do not prohibit Tamayo from running.

>> The last words were cut off in some print editions of yesterday's editorial about the increase in drunken-driving fatalities, and the decision by police to maintain one sobriety checkpoint for each week of the year instead of just holidays. The last paragraph should have read:

"The Lingle administration also should seek federal assistance for the effort. Hawaii was not included among 28 states that received assistance last year by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in the form of sustained enforcement, periodic enforcement crackdowns and paid media advertising funded by Congress. Twelve of those states had decreases that accounted for three-fourths of the nation's total reduction in alcohol-related fatalities last year. Hawaii needs to receive part of that action."
