WASHINGTON - Archer Daniels Midland Co., Cargill Inc. and another maker of corn sweeteners must face a trial over price-fixing claims, after the U.S. Supreme Court refused yesterday to hear an appeal seeking to throw out a $4 billion lawsuit by food companies. The lawsuit says the producers colluded to fix the price of a corn sweetener used in soft drinks, candy and baked goods. In a separate case, Archer Daniels, the world's largest grain producer, paid a then-record $100 million fine in 1996 and three executives were sent to prison for conspiring to fix the price of lysine, an animal feed additive.

In winter, Sweden starves for sunlight. A December day in Stockholm may bring five hours of light; go farther north, and the sun won't bother rising until spring.The Swedes decorate to combat darkness with reflected light, a sense of grace, copious storage to banish clutter, and an appreciation of half-empty space. They also have a secret ingredient: paint."During the winter, when what little sunshine there is bounces off the snow, subtle Gustavian whites and grays help to maximize that light," writes Katrin Cargill, author of "Creating the Look: Swedish Style" (Pantheon Books, $27.50)

Eastern Tech pitcher Jordan Cargile led her team to its best season in the program's history last season. Now, she is fully focused on taking her team to an even higher level. The Mavericks surged through the 2013 regular season and playoffs, only to fall short in the Class 3A championship game to Northern-Calvert, which at the time was the top-ranked team in the nation by MaxPreps. Cargile, the reigning All-Metro Player of the Year, is confident her team has the talent to make another run at the title, and she can't wait to get back on the field.
