• Wednesday’s front page story “Syngenta settles pesticide violations” should state: The school (Waimea Canyon Middle School) has experienced at least three incidents over the last two years that sickened students, staff and teachers after a nearby field was sprayed with pesticide. The company that responded to those incidents was Syngenta Seed Co. Officials claim cleome gynandra, or wild spider flower, was causing those illnesses, not pesticides.
Syngenta has since begun to work with the school to reach a solution.
