3 freed after raid on massage parlor

Three of the four people arrested in Friday night's raid on the county's only massage parlor were released from the Carroll County Detention Center yesterday.

After a hearing before Carroll District Judge JoAnn Ellinghaus-Jones, Tae Sun Brock, 38, of Reisterstown, and Candy Doe, alias Miyon Y. Heil, 33, posted $200 surety bonds to guarantee their $2,000 bail.

The two are charged with engaging in prostitution, a misdemeanor, and face a maximum sentence of one year in jail and a $500 fine. They had been held in lieu of $25,000 bond since Friday night, when they were arrested after a raid on Sunn Express Inc. of Finksburg.

Sun Cha Yun, 37, of Reisterstown, also was released after paying a $200 surety bond. She had been held in lieu of $50,000 bond since Friday. She has been charged with keeping a bawdyhouse and other related misdemeanor prostitution counts.

Byorg Ho Son, of New York City, also was arrested during the raid. He was charged with possession of cocaine with the intent to distribute and with possession of drug paraphernalia. He remains held in the detention center on $100,000 bond.

The Friday raid was conducted -- by state police, Howard County police and the Carroll state's attorney's office -- after a confidential informant paid someone in Sunn Express to have sexual intercourse last week, authorities said.

Football player appeals dismissal of her case

Carroll's first female high school football player has appealed last month's dismissal of her $1.5 million lawsuit against the county school board.

On Thursday, Tawana Hammond, the former Francis Scott Key Eagles halfback and safety who was severely injured during a 1989 practice game, filed an appeal to Carroll Circuit Judge Raymond E. Beck Sr.'s dismissal of the case.

The appeal moves the case out of Carroll Circuit Court, where it has been since August, to Maryland's Court of Special Appeals. A hearing date has not been set.

Ms. Hammond claimed the school board did not adequately warn her of the inherent dangers of high school football.

Judge Beck dismissed the case June 25, saying the school board owed no duty to warn Miss Hammond of the "obvious" risks associated with varsity high school football.

Miss Hammond, now 20, suffered injuries to her spleen and pancreas. Her lawyers have said the injury will prevent her from bearing children.

Commissioner Dell elected to BMC board

The Baltimore Metropolitan Council has elected Carroll County Commissioner Donald I. Dell to its 1994 board of directors.

Baltimore Mayor Kurt Schmoke was elected chairman and Baltimore County Executive Roger Hayden was elected vice chairman. Other board members include Anne Arundel County Executive Robert Neall, Harford County Executive Eileen M. Rehrmann and Howard County Executive Charles Ecker.

The council is a new, private, nonprofit organization that serves as the forum for regional problem solving, information sharing and policy making.

Heart Association closes local office

The American Heart Association closed its Carroll office at 280 E. Main St. in Westminster July 1, but has hired a new county director who will work out of her home.

"It was strictly a cost factor," said Kay Hoffman, regional director.

By saving rent on the office, the Heart Association was able to hire a new director, Susan Reitenbach of Westminster, who will begin training for her new duties next week, Ms. Hoffman said.

While Ms. Hoffman is preparing to start her job, anyone who needs information about the American Heart Association can call the Frederick office at 800-684-1000.

The association maintains a Carroll mailing address at P.O. Box 550, Westminster 21158.
