When Herb Wetherington looks at the fading hulk of a building at East Baltimore and Haven streets, he becomes nostalgic and hopeful all at once. The building is the long-dormant Esskay Quality Meats Co. processing plant, once one of Highlandtown's biggest employers but now a vacant, down-at-the-heels relic most noticeable for its smashed windows. "Because of the memories, it puts a bit of a hole in my stomach to see what's going to happen to this building," Wetherington said as he stood in the parking lot near the building yesterday.

The college was supposed to rely on donated cash for its half of the $4.4 million purchase. But sufficient contributions didn't materialize, and college officials disclosed earlier this month that they instead had used money left over from last year's budget to complete the transaction.

The infrastructure improvements that made Arundel Mills mall possible will now also boost education. Anne Arundel Community College recently announced that it would build and open a four-story, 65,000-square-foot building near the huge mall. The Arundel Mills development inspired nearby highway construction and regional public transportation improvements that could become a plus for community college commuters. But it might turn into a mixed blessing. College and Mills Corp. officials should look into a crystal ball to see what could happen in mid-November 2003 if they don't plan for the crush of students and holiday shoppers converging on the Arundel Mills area at the same time.
