— A Wednesday story on caucus results and nonpartisan petition candidates should have said Lawrence Bay, of Port Byron, is a Republican nominee for mayor and organized the caucus, the second in 20 years for the village. No other candidates were nominated. We regret the error.

— A story in Tuesday's paper from Illinois Watchdog news service listed an incorrect amount for the state's unfunded pension liability. It should have said $96 million. We regret the source's error.

— A Sunday article on "'Twas the Artmare Before Christmas" at the Village Theatre in Davenport incorrectly reported Tera Conine was the final body-paint model at the Saturday event. She did not participate. We regret the source's error.

— A recent story about WQPT's broadcast of the PBS documentary "Poor Kids" incorrectly stated the number of people nationwide who have donated online to a fund for the children in the film. More than 1,500 people have visited truevisiontv.com/poor-kids-fund; not all have made donations. We regret the reporter's error.

— A brief in Wednesday's Metro East incorrectly stated the First United Methodist Church in Port Byron was hosting its annual Christmas Traditions on Saturday. The event was last weekend. We apologize for the error.

  Today is Monday, Sept. 22, the 265th day of 2014. There are 100 days left in the year.

1864 -- 150 years ago: The board of education has granted Thursday as a holiday for the children, with the expectation that parents who desire to have their children attend the Scott County Fair will do so on that day and save irregularity the rest of the week.
1889 -- 125 years ago: The guard fence around the new cement walk at the Harper House has been removed. The blocks are diamond shape, alternating in black and white.
1914 -- 100 years ago: The Rev. R.B. Williams, former pastor of the First Methodist Church, Rock Island, was named superintendent of the Rock Island District.
1939 -- 75 years ago: Abnormally high temperatures and lack of rainfall in Illinois during the past week have speeded maturing of corn and soybean crops.
1964 -- 50 years ago: Installation of a new television system in St. Anthony's Hospital, which includes a closed circuit channel as well as the three regular Quad-Cities channels, has been completed and now is in operation.
1989 -- 25 years ago: When the new Moline High School was built in 1958, along with it were plans to construct a football field in the bowl near 34th Street on the campus. Wednesday afternoon, more than 30 years later, the Moline Board of Education Athletic Board sent the ball rolling toward the possible construction of that field by asking superintendent Richard Hennigan to take to the board of education a proposal to hire a consultant.
