A note to readers

February 24, 2005

This Sunday, The Sun will unveil important changes in the way we cover news of Howard County and the region.

The Sun will be publishing a redesigned Howard section with a new look, many new features and a new emphasis on community news.

The intensely local section will include:

Feature stories about people, places and events in the county written and illustrated by our award-winning writers and photographers.

A weekly look at Howard County's rich history.

A column for federal workers.

Another column devoted to Howard politics.

A compendium of opinions from readers on an issue in the news.

Redesigned, easier-to-read events calendars to help you plan your week.

A page each week devoted exclusively to local education news, as well as another devoted to local high school sports.

Familiar features, such as Howard at Play and Howard Live, will continue to provide comprehensive coverage of Howard County entertainment and recreation.

The new, very local sections will appear in The Sun each Sunday, Wednesday and Friday. Currently, readers receive a mix of local, regional and state news in a Howard section published six days a week.

The Sun remains committed to providing the best coverage of Howard County seven days a week. The Maryland section, which, beginning Sunday, Howard readers will receive each day, has been redesigned to provide more breaking news from the county and elsewhere in the state.

The Maryland section will also include new features, such as a weekly traffic map to help commuters avoid trouble spots, and, each Monday, a "Maryland Journal" featuring colorful scenes and stories from around the state.
