Edwin M. McGowan lives in Fort Montgomery. His hometown was incorrectly listed in an obituary about his father, Gerard F. McGowan, published Sunday.
The Another Voice column Saturday had incorrect dates for when the phrase "In God We Trust" began appearing on U.S. money. According to the Treasury Department, the phrase first appeared on the 1864 two-cent coin. The motto disappeared from the five-cent coin in 1883 and did not reappear until production of the Jefferson nickel began in 1938. Since 1938, all U.S. coins bear the inscription. "In God We Trust" was first used on paper money in 1957, when it appeared on the one-dollar silver certificate.
An incorrect photo accompanied Sunday's story on a leadership shake-up in the Erie County Legislature. The photo was that of Thomas W. Mazur of the county comptroller's office, not Thomas J. Mazur, the newly elected county legislator from Cheektowaga.
