Constellation Energy Group is reportedly in the final stages of takeover negotiations that could see it absorbed by the Chicago-based power company Exelon Corp., a deal that would usher Baltimore's last Fortune 500 company headquarters out of town. For Constellation, the deal comes less than three years after the company narrowly averted bankruptcy and would be the third attempt to sell itself since 2006. Sources familiar with the matter told several publications late Wednesday that Exelon was in late-stage talks to buy Constellation.

Chicago is the zingiest, most inventive movie of its kind since Cabaret. It leaves viewers feeling juiced-up, smart, alive - clamoring for a new era of big-screen musicals with sass and sensibility. Director-choreographer Rob Marshall and screenwriter Bill Condon embrace the effrontery of the lowdown-classic story. Once again, a Roaring '20s chorine named Roxie Hart (Renee Zellweger) and a headliner named Velma Kelley (Catherine Zeta-Jones) use their notoriety as killers to fuel show-biz celebrity.

The National Professional Soccer League has ceased operations of the Edmonton Drillers, a franchise in the league since 1988, effective immediately, according to commissioner Steve Ryan. The league, which took over operations of the franchise on Nov. 15 on an interim basis after Edmonton ownership failed to meet payroll obligations, was unable to find new local ownership. The league is now working on revising the remainder of the 2000-2001 schedule. It will also conduct a re-entry draft for the Edmonton players on Monday afternoon, providing them with an opportunity to finish the season with other teams in the league.
