In an article Monday in the Howard County edition of The Sun about crowded Howard County elementary schools, comments by County Council member Christopher J. Merdon were not attributed to him because of an editing error. Merdon expressed skepticism about enrollment and capacity projections the council must adopt under the county's law limiting development around crowded schools.

Merdon said, "We're asked to adopt legislation [the chart] that I have no confidence in." He said later, "I don't believe it's a good tool. The methods they use don't seem to work."

The Sun regrets the error.
