A headline accompanying an article yesterday on the Baltimore County NAACP's criticism of Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr.'s appointments to the county school board incorrectly stated the number of board members who are black. Two members are black.

An article on the future of the Hubble Space Telescope in Tuesday's editions incorrectly reported that NASA was reviewing 25 proposals for a robotic mission to service the instruments. Although 25 robotic mission "concepts" were reviewed this spring, a spokesman said that to comply with federal procurement regulations, NASA has never released the number of formal Hubble repair proposals that were subsequently submitted in July.

An item in Tuesday's City/County Digest incorrectly stated that the Baltimore City Council will take a final vote at its next meeting on a $34 million bond issue for school construction. In fact, the ordinance was passed Monday.

An article Sunday concerning suspected well contamination in the Fallston area of Harford County incorrectly characterized toluene, a chemical found in gasoline. The chemical is not a known carcinogen.

The article also incorrectly stated the amount of fuel that runs through the Colonial Pipeline. The pipeline transports an average of 96 million gallons of fuel each day, not each year.

In early editions Aug. 4, a headline incorrectly stated that the Lantern Inn in Betterton is closing. The inn is for sale, but remains open.

The Sun regrets the errors.
