Because of an error by a state contractor, the preliminary totals for the modern firearms deer hunt were underreported in Wednesday's editions of The Sun. Hunters shot 44,941 deer during the two-week firearm season, a 1.5 percent increase over last year. Using a new Internet and telephone checking system, hunters reported to the Department of Natural Resources that they killed 16,123 antlered deer and 28,818 antlerless deer.

An article in yesterday's Health & Science section describing a star where planets like earth may be forming was incorrectly labeled. The label should have read "Astronomy."

An article in the Dec. 9 editions stated that "the bulk of school construction funding in Baltimore comes from the state." In the current fiscal year, Maryland officials say, the state has provided $18.8 million to the city for school construction. Baltimore officials say the city has provided $17 million for school construction.

The Sun regrets the errors.
