A note to readers

Today, The Sun unveils important changes in the way we cover Harford County and the region.

The Sun will be publishing a new Harford section, with a new look, many new features and a new emphasis on community news.


The intensely local section will include:

Feature stories about people, places and events in the county written and illustrated by our award-winning writers and photographers.


A weekly look at Harford County's rich history, as well as a column of agricultural news.

A compendium of opinions from readers on an issue in the news, called Speak Out!

Redesigned, easier-to-read events calendars.

Stories and photos on Harford County school sports, as well as a page devoted to local education news.

The new, very local section will appear in The Sun each Sunday. Previously, readers received a mix of local, regional and state news in the Harford section.

The Sun remains committed to providing the best coverage of Harford County seven days a week. The Maryland section, which Harford readers will receive seven days a week beginning today, has been redesigned to provide more breaking news from the county and elsewhere in the state.

The Maryland section will also include new features, such as a weekly traffic map to help commuters avoid trouble spots, and, Mondays, a "Maryland Journal" with colorful scenes and stories from around the state.
