Tribune Co. completed the spinoff Monday of Tribune Publishing Co., which includes The Baltimore Sun and nine other daily newspapers. Tribune is just the latest multimedia news company to split up its broadcasting and publishing assets, joining Rupert Murdoch's News Corp. and E.W. Scripps, which completed such a spinoff just last week. Such separation is gaining momentum as traditional media seek to adapt to the fast-evolving digital landscape. An amicable corporate divorce is generally seen as best for both sides, streamlining them to compete against new media behemoths such as Google.

A vandal painted the words "No illeagles here," on a Carroll County building that had been under consideration as a temporary shelter for undocumented immigrant children. "No undocumented Democrats," continued the message painted on Westminster's former Army Reserve Center. While the graffiti provoked online banter about sick birds of prey, the Maryland State Police took the incident seriously. The Carroll County Times reports that the state police are investigating the graffiti as a hate crime due to its ethnic implications.

I am pleased to see that The Sun recently acquired the Carroll County Times ( "Baltimore Sun Media Group buys The Capital in Annapolis and the Carroll County Times," May 1). The Times has done an outstanding job as a local newspaper for decades, and it's my hope that the purchase by The Sun will restore statewide coverage of Carroll County politics as it once provided when The Sun maintained a local bureau here. Commentary and coverage of Carroll County to a statewide audience is important to those outside the county so that everyone in the region is aware that our current county commissioners and legislative delegation would as soon secede from the state as participate in coordinated efforts restore the Chesapeake Bay or even increase its recycling rates.

Carroll County commissioners have lost their case against several media organizations and now must decide whether to comply with a judge's order to turn over email lists or appeal. The five commissioners plan to meet in closed session Thursday to discuss the case, which resulted in a court order last week giving the board until early February to provide email distribution lists used by the commissioners, including the email addresses. If they choose to challenge the ruling before the Maryland Court of Special Appeals, they would have until mid-February to do so. In an opinion issued Jan. 16, retired Howard County Circuit Judge Dennis M. Sweeney ruled against the commissioners, who in March denied a Carroll County Times reporter's request under the Maryland Public Information Act for mailing lists, including email addresses, that the commissioners use to contact groups of people.
