City/County Digest

TOWSON — Baltimore public schools open today with 2,000 children lacking necessary immunizations, despite free shots offered at city health clinics, school officials said yesterday.

Children without an official record of their immunizations will not be allowed to begin school today unless the child's parents bring the record to school, said Vanessa Pyatt, public relations director of the school system. In recent years, many children have been turned away because they didn't have the shots, but a city campaign has reduced those numbers.

Officials staggered city school openings this year to save on bus transportation costs. Information on the starting time for each school: 410-396-7440.

Navy lists visiting hours for mine hunter USS Raven

The Navy has announced visiting hours for its newest ship, the mine hunter USS Raven, which will be commissioned in a ceremony at 10 a.m. Saturday at Baltimore's Inner Harbor.

The 188-foot-long Raven is moving to the Inner Harbor's west wall, where it will be open to the public from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday, Thursday, Sunday and Labor Day. It is scheduled to depart Sept. 8.

It is the third ship to bear the name -- the others having been a schooner that served in the War of 1812 (predating "The Raven" of Edgar Allan Poe) and a minesweeper built in 1940. It will be based with the other 10 ships of its class in Ingleside, Texas.

Gunmen kill woman, injure man in bar

City police yesterday were searching for two masked gunmen who opened fire in a South Baltimore bar, killing one patron and wounding another Saturday night.

Angela Nutt, 28, of Baltimore, was shot in the head about 11: 20 p.m. at the Hollinswood Inn in the 2800 block of Hollins Ferry Road. She died at Maryland Shock Trauma Center. Richard Hullett, 30, of Brooklyn Park, was shot in the right hip and was listed in stable condition last night at the center.

Police said they believe that Nutt and Hullett were not the gunmen's intended victims.

TOWSON -- Western county Del. Emmett C. Burns and state Senate candidate Robert F. Dashiell have been sent overdue notices by state elections board officials for not filing their campaign finance reports, which were due Aug. 18.

Dashiell, a lawyer and county school board member who is running against fellow Democrat Delores G. Kelley, said he takes "full responsibility" for the report's lateness, but said his campaign consultant, Julius Henson, was to have submitted the report.

Burns, an incumbent Democrat, is running for re-election in the same 10th Legislative District, which covers a slice of West Baltimore and the Liberty Road corridor. He said confusion over the forms delayed his report, which he plans to file today.
