Hospital benefits from home's sale

All Children's Hospital in St. Petersburg just got $20,000 from the Pasco Building Association. The association passed on the gift from McCar Homes. It was part of the proceeds from the sale of the association's 2006 Showcase Home. McCar Homes built last year's showcase home in Grassglen village in the Seven Oaks development off Bruce B. Downs Boulevard and State Road 56. McCar Homes products in Seven Oaks sell in the $300,000 range.

Clarifications

- Although the Pasco County school district has raised questions about how money was handled at two of its charter schools, charges were filed in just one case, in which an employee of Deerwood Academy was found guilty of racketeering. The second investigation, involving the Language Academy, never resulted in criminal proceedings. A story Friday was unclear on the distinction.

- The driver in a Friday story whose blood-alcohol level was 0.481 was driving a Chevrolet Astro van. Neither the driver nor his vehicle is affiliated with New Port Richey-based Astro Limo.
