The county yesterday cashed a $2 million letter of credit against the developer of the 4,700-unit Seven Oaks development in Odenton, forcing Sovran Bank to pay the second installment for a new elementary school.The state Court of Special Appeals denied a request Wednesday by the Halle Cos. to stop the county from cashing the letter until an appeal could be heard. The bank is responsible for paying the $2 million, and Halle, in turn, owes the bank. The company also owes the county an additional $60,000 for lost interest.

WILMINGTON, Del. - A federal bankruptcy court judge approved yesterday more than a dozen legal motions filed by Tribune Co. that will allow it to borrow millions, pay thousands of employees and maintain critical vendor and customer contracts. The motions were designed to keep the media giant operating while it restructures its finances, a process that could take a year or more. It was the initial court appearance for the Chicago-based parent company of The Baltimore Sun and other newspapers, television stations and media properties across the nation after its Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing Monday, which encompasses 110 of the company's 127 subsidiaries.

Although escrow accounts may be one of the more popular ways builders handle deposits from homebuyers, surety bonds and letters of credit also can be used.There are pros and cons to each, according to John Nethercut, assistant attorney general in the Consumer Protection Division. "The bond or the letter of credit are good in the sense that they are, unlike a bank account, easier to get at and verify," Nethercut said."The good thing about the bonds and letters of credit is that they are publicly filed; the bad thing is that there may not be 100 percent recovery," he said.

Cleveland-based businessman Alfred Lerner is expected to file an application today to own an NFL expansion team in Baltimore, becoming the third owner vying for a local team.His emergence, with the encouragement of Gov. William Donald Schaefer, is at least a vote of no confidence for the two other potential owners who have been involved in the effort for more than a year: Florida-based corporate investor Malcolm Glazer and Baltimore-born retail executive Leonard "Boogie" Weinglass.Although officials would not confirm that Schaefer would endorse Lerner, Weinglass said he was told otherwise during a 50-minute meeting yesterday morning.
