Corrections: For the Record (NY Times, June 7, 2006)

An article on Saturday about Katharine Close, 13, the winner of the 79th annual Scripps National Spelling Bee, included incorrect information from spelling bee officials about her victory. She is the second New Jersey resident to win, not the first. (In 1971, Jonathan Knisely, then of Mullica Hill, N.J., won.) A related article in some copies misspelled the word that eliminated one finalist, Jonathan Horton of Gilbert, Ariz. It was sciolto, not cialto.
