Say goodbye to the herb ravioli and veal with dried figs and red pepper. Who knows if Fiori, the northern Italian restaurant in Owings Mills, will be around much longer?When Baltimore County approved a proposal by the property owner, Painters Mill Associates No. 1, to build where the restaurant and a parking lot are at Painters Mill and S. Dolfield roads, the assumption was that one of two things would happen. Either the historic 18th-century home of Samuel Owings could be moved, or the restaurant would take a first-floor space in the new office building.

NEW YORK -- The hottest new stock offering of 1993 is a company run by a football player. If the market prices hold, Lawrence Taylor, the star linebacker for the New York Giants, stands to make millions on an investment of a few thousand.It is hard to tell whether the amazing performance of All-Pro Products Inc. reflects the popularity of Mr. Taylor or the excesses of a bull market that has gone wild. Probably it is a little of both.All-Pro, which hopes to make money in the very different businesses of video games and sports drinks, went public Nov. 9 at a price of $5 for a unit, consisting of one share of stock and a warrant to buy another share.

Or are you going to cut and run?This question greatly worries investment professionals. Because of the low interest rates at banks and money-market funds, people who normally don't buy stocks jumped into the market with both feet last year.
