September 28, 1992
Today marks a new era in the history of The Evening Sun -- an era in which the newspaper will cover the metropolitan counties more thoroughly than ever before. You and your neighbors in Carroll and Howard counties now receive a Sun tailor-made for you; in Baltimore City, Baltimore and Harford counties, localized editions are to be published beginning next year.Why the focus on local news? Because while we know readers depend on us for state, national and world news, we realize that they care just as much about what is happening in their hometowns.
