OWINGS MILLS -- Having recently completed a successful $12 million capital campaign, Garrison Forest School is increasing its fund-raising goal to $17 million to continue expansion and renovations.

The 550-student girls school will use the additional money to build a field house with a fitness area, add playing fields, expand its riding facilities, renovate and enlarge the kitchen and dining room and increase on-campus housing for faculty.

The new goal includes a recent pledge of $1.5 million, the largest gift in the school's 86-year history, to be used for expansion of its lower school over 18 months.

Tree-lighting ceremony set for Monday in Towson

TOWSON -- The county's annual tree-lighting ceremony takes place at 6 p.m. Monday at the courthouse plaza behind the old courthouse on Washington Avenue.

A woman who was killed in a one-car accident on the southbound Jones Falls Expressway on Sept. 15 had nearly twice the legal limit of alcohol in her system and had previously ingested cocaine, the state medical examiner's office has ruled.

Dusty Klein, 28, of Tindeco Wharf Apartments in the 2800 block of Boston St. in Canton died of massive head injuries she suffered in the crash when a 1990 Jaguar she was driving struck a barrier, slid across three lanes, crashed into a concrete barrier along the shoulder and overturned.

Dr. Ann M. Dixon, a deputy state medical examiner, said in her report that Klein had a blood alcohol content of .19 percent when she died, nearly twice the legal limit. Evidence of cocaine was found in Klein's urine, but Dixon said she was not under the influence of the drug when the accident occurred.

Police tentatively identify victim of Saturday crash

The teen-ager killed Saturday in a fiery crash in Northwest Baltimore was tentatively identified by city police yesterday as Michael Rivers of Baltimore County, a student at the Woodstock Job Corps program.

Police said they will use dental records to positively identify Rivers, 16, of the 3500 block of Aurora Lane in Woodmoor.

Officer Raymond Howard of the traffic investigation section said Rivers was in his father's 1985 Dodge Caravan, which he had taken without permission, and driving north in the 3400 block of Park Heights Ave. when he apparently lost control of the vehicle and struck a concrete median strip. The vehicle flipped over, struck a utility pole and burst into flames.
