PORTLAND (AP) – In a story Wednesday about the school board approving birth control pills for female students at a Portland middle school, The Associated Press misstated the vote. It was 7-2, not 5-2. The story also erred on the year when condoms were first made available to students at King Middle School. It was 2000, not 2002. Additionally, the surname of the school board chairman was misspelled. His name is Peter Coyne, not Coynie.
