TOWSON — A state appeals court yesterday affirmed a decision of the city liquor board to strip the Dead Eye Saloon, a South Baltimore pub, of its liquor license.

The Court of Special Appeals ruled that the board was within its authority when it revoked Dan Davis' license in July 1995 for defying the board by offering live entertainment and serving alcohol on an outdoor deck at the saloon, which is on a city-owned tract behind a marina on Insulator Drive in Port Covington. The revocation was affirmed by a Baltimore Circuit Court ruling Dec. 12, 1995.

The appeals court said the board has the right to revoke a license "whenever it is necessary to promote the peace or safety of the community."

$50,000 USF&G grant to aid Stemmers students


CATONSVILLE -- A $50,000 grant from USF&G Foundation will be used to help 20 students from Stemmers Run Middle School remain in school and sharpen their learning skills.

The grant was given to the University of Maryland Baltimore County's Shriver Center to use in its Choice Middle Schools program in the county school system and in three other Maryland counties.

The program lets academic professionals identify students who could become drop-outs and help them and their families re-emphasize education through meetings and tutoring. The public-private partnership also stresses school attendance.
