Prosecutors dropped attempted-murder charges yesterday against an 18-year-old Baltimore soldier who had been arrested in Oklahoma, saying authorities lacked enough evidence to hold him responsible for a shooting that left five people wounded in the city last month. Jerrell Hill, 18, who had been detained at Fort Sill and later moved to the Comanche County Detention Center, was expected to be released last night, officials said. An assistant state's attorney appeared in District Court in Baltimore yesterday to formally drop the case and withdraw an extradition warrant.

Savannah G. "Penny" Vernarelli, a registered nurse who served in the Army in World War II and Korea, died of lung cancer Tuesday at Gilchrist Center for Hospice Care.

"People think she was named for Savannah, Georgia, but she wasn't. Her father, a Norfolk and Western Railway conductor, gave her the nickname of Penny because she was so small," said a son, Mark A. Vernarelli of Baldwin, a spokesman for the state Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services and former television news reporter.

He was a 19-year-old private from Baltimore, stationed in Hawaii at the Army Air Corps' Hickam Field. Now, he is 80 and a retired officer living in Columbia, hearing noises he hasn't heard in 60 years. When pundits compare yesterday's attacks on the United States to the Dec. 7, 1941, bombing of Pearl Harbor, survivor Hugh Roper says they are right in more ways than one. The weather "was unbelieveably gorgeous" that December morning in Hawaii, he says. Much like yesterday's blue skies and light breeze.
