An article yesterday about a new contract for Carroll County Schools Superintendent Charles I. Ecker gave the wrong date for when he became interim head of the district. Ecker was named interim superintendent in 2000 and superintendent in 2002.
An article yesterday about state assistance to municipal governments for road projects inaccurately attributed a quotation to legislative analyst Jonathan Martin. In fact, Del. Peter Franchot, a Montgomery County Democrat, characterized the conclusions by the Department of Legislative Services by saying that a dispute between the state Department of Transportation and municipal officials could be "easily resolved by writing a check to the localities tomorrow."
A news brief in the Feb. 3 editions about the Church of England's vote to acknowledge its complicity in the global slave trade erroneously reported that Britain abolished slavery in 1807. Britain outlawed the slave trade in 1807 but did not legislate to emancipate slaves in its territories until 1833.
The Sun regrets the errors.
