In a June 19 story with the headline "BridgestoneFirestone leaves Akron," The Associated Press misstated sales figures for BridgestoneFirestone, Goodyear and Michelin. In 1989, according to the trade newspaper Tire Business, BridgestoneFirestone had $2.32 billion in sales, while Goodyear sales totaled about $3.5 billion and Michelin had sales of about $2.1 billion. The original story erroneously listed those figures as tires sold in 1990. The Herald & Review strives for accuracy.
