Wood, on Friday, said David Tillman, a spokesman for the city Department of Housing and Community Development.

The Belvedere in historic Mount Vernon boasts a 40-foot-long mahogany bar where the likes of Theodore Roosevelt, John F. Kennedy, the Duke of Windsor and Clark Gable sidled up for a drink. The Suite Ultralounge Nightclub is in the basement of the Belvedere and boasts being "the only upscale venue in Baltimore where you can bring your own bottle of top shelf." Its Web site promo wants you to "swagger like us" and "come get your party on." One does not seem to go with the other. Early Saturday, loud music gave way to gunfire on East Chase Street in front of the Belvedere, leaving two people wounded by bullets, a third person stabbed and a bartender using a towel to try and stop the flow of blood.

In the same basement where Prohibition-era bootleggers once stored casks of whiskey, city officials say two young entrepreneurs opened an illegal nightclub that has residents of the historic Belvedere Hotel's condominiums complaining of thumping rap music and violence. In response to the complaints, city officials and vice police have staged a series of raids at the venerable Mount Vernon landmark, where they say liquor laws are once again being breached. During an early-morning raid this month, police seized alcoholic beverages, cash and a handgun.

Thompson, who plays from Chestnut Ridge Country Club, will face 1997 champion Mallory Crosland, from the Chevy Chase Club, in this morning's 18-hole final. Crosland defeated Jessica Lewis, Columbia CC, 6 and 4. Paik, 15, from Indian Spring CC, and backed by 1 1/2 years at David Leadbetter's golf school in Florida, was solid in twice going 2-up, but Thompson squared the match by running off six straight pars leading to the last hole.

When the Los Angeles County Museum of Art acquired Video Flag Z in 1986, the piece by video artist Nam June Paik canonized a culture driven by technology. A 6-foot-high grid of 84 white Quasar monitors flashed a changing mosaic of images that together formed an American flag in pulsating red, white and blue. Today, the screens of Video Flag Z are dark, victims of the modernity to which they paid tribute. The artwork's parts, including the 84 defunct television sets, are packed in the museum's warehouse.
