DETROIT - Ford Motor Co. has offered buyout or retirement incentive packages to all of its 41,000 U.S. hourly workers as it tries to further reduce its factory work force. Ford, the healthiest of Detroit's three automakers and the only one to avoid government aid and bankruptcy protection, still has more workers than it needs to produce cars and trucks at current sales levels, said company spokesman Mark Truby. He would not say how many workers Ford expects to take the packages, which include cash payments and other incentives such as vouchers to buy cars and short-term health insurance.

Neither Claire Ford of Notre Dame Prep nor Matt Stambaugh of Eastern Tech sought the spotlight in their high school sports careers. On Monday night, however, both seniors found themselves literally bathed in it at the 74th Annual McCormick Unsung Heroes Awards in Hunt Valley. Ford, who switched from shooting guard to point guard her senior year of basketball, and Stambaugh, who excelled as a guard in football despite his 5-foot-9, 165-pound frame, each were named winners of the event's crowning prize, the Charles Perry McCormick Scholarship, worth $36,000 over four years.

The Abell Foundation, best known for its charitable work battling poverty in Baltimore, went to court this week over a very different venture: designing hybrid engines for vehicles. Over the past 15 years, the foundation quietly became a player in the future of automobile development. It invested more than $25 million in Paice, a Baltimore firm that invented a way to improve the performance of combined gas/electric engines but in recent years has spent considerable time in court.

Mrs. Dolly Gallagher Levi, widowed too soon and left to her own devices in 1890s New York, turns meddling into a sly, lucrative art.

And when she decides on a plot to snare as her next husband the well-known “half-a-millionaire” Horace Vandergelder in Yonkers, she generates plenty of frantic activity - and one of the best of...

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and her pick to run the city Fire Department said Monday they hope to hire and promote more minorities and women - even as the department cuts positions. In introducing Niles Ford, 48, as her selection to lead the Baltimore City Fire Department, Rawlings-Blake called a lack of diversity in the agency a "persistent problem. " She pointed to Ford's work as fire chief in Lincoln, Neb., where he created a plan to hire more minorities and women. "Dr. Ford was also a leader in opening the door for women and minorities in Lincoln, promoting the first female battalion chief in their history," Rawlings-Blake said.

I suppose it is possible that, in 2010, when Ford sent safety recall notices to 492,000 owners of Windstar minivans because of a rear-axle problem, it missed Mr. Philip George of Ocean City , Md., whom everyone calls "Bill. " It is equally possible that, a year later, when Ford mailed 425,000 recall notices because of another Windstar safety problem, it missed him again. When a big company has problems on the scale of Ford's flawed Windstars of 1999 to 2003 — there were six recalls on the 2002 model alone — some customers just might never get the memo.

Walmart just reported shrinking sales for a third straight quarter. What's going on? Explained William S. Simon, the CEO of Walmart, referring to the company's customers, "Their income is going down while food costs are not. Gas and energy prices, while they're abating, I think they're still eating up a big piece of the customer's budget. " Walmart's CEO gets it. Most of Walmart's customers are still in the Great Recession, grappling with stagnant or declining pay. So, naturally, the company's sales are dropping.
