Boatbuilder Brunswick Corp. plans to close its last Maryland plant that makes the Trophy offshore fishing boat and move the production to Tennessee, the company announced yesterday. About 115 workers will lose their jobs when the Cumberland plant closes by the end of the year. The Lake Forest, Ill.-based Brunswick said the plant closure is part of continuing plans to shrink its North American operations as it deals with the economic downturn and the impact on marine sales.

McCoy said in a statement.

Eleven miles away, just across the West Virginia border, a part-time factory worker and a retiree cheerfully drain money into a bank of five slot machines lining a cramped, windowless room near the regional airport, along with three other Cumberland women.
