CUMBERLAND - The textile factory closed in 1983, the tire plant in 1987. By the early 1990s, the glass company that once employed 1,300 moved its final 50 jobs out of town. When word came recently that a cabinet manufacturer would bring 500 jobs to Allegany County, the biggest new opportunity in a generation, some residents didn't believe it until the steel skeleton of the plant began rising in a field where cattle once grazed in the shadow of the ever-present mountains. Then the floodgates opened.

HOUSE SPEAKER Casper R. Taylor Jr., who needs all the friends he can get these days, has found one in Gov. Parris N. Glendening. Taylor has come under fire in his hometown, Cumberland, for his role in a controversy about school closings. He was the subject of an effusive testimonial by the governor last week in a letter to the Cumberland Times-News. Praising his fellow Democrat's "character and integrity," Glendening defended Taylor against rumors that he had "sold" his vote on the governor's gun-safety bill for $1 million to stave off school closings in Allegany County.

Arthur H. Bremer, who shot and paralyzed former Alabama Gov. George Wallace in 1972, is living in an apartment in Cumberland as he begins the transition to life in the outside world after 35 years behind prison walls, an Allegany County official said yesterday. "He is in Cumberland. ... It's really not a big deal," said Allegany County Administrator Vance Ishler. In an effort to avoid media attention, Bremer, 57, was released from a state prison in Hagerstown on Friday before dawn. Prison system officials declined to say where he would be living but had previously said they would try to find a place for him in a rural part of Maryland.

About 85 vehicles driving along a foggy mountaintop in Garrett County crashed yesterday in a series of accidents that killed at least two people and injured more than 60, authorities said. The accidents left a tangle of damaged cars, trucks and tractor-trailers in the eastbound and westbound lanes of Interstate 68. Firefighters and emergency workers worked through the fog and rain on Big Savage Mountain, one of the highest points in Maryland, to rescue the injured. "It looked like a junkyard, cars piled on top of each other," said Keith Bailey, 48, a truck driver from Grand Rapids, Mich.
