For the Record


Police are investigating thefts from vehicles in Southeast Roanoke. The location was wrong in a story in Tuesday's Virginia section.

The gender of the mental health patient who committed suicide while being held in the Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital emergency room was incorrect in a headline in Tuesday's Virginia section. The patient was a woman.


An item in the What's On Your Mind column published Monday may have added to confusion regarding saving plastic soda lids for charity. Rumors that the collection of the plastic, screw-on lids will help a charity appear to have been a hoax. The tabs from aluminum cans, however, are collected by Ronald McDonald House as a fundraiser. In Roanoke, those aluminum tabs may be brought to the Ronald McDonald House at 2224 S. Jefferson St.
