A headline accompanying a front-page article in Oct. 20 editions of The Sun, "Ehrlich OK'd deal for land," may have left readers with the impression that Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. had given final approval to a plan for sale of public lands. The article reported on testimony by Maryland Department of General Services Secretary Boyd K. Rutherford, in which Rutherford said Ehrlich was briefed in 2003 and "said it was worth pursuing." Only the Board of Public Works, on which the governor serves, can authorize final approval of any public land sale.
