St. Paul Cos., the Minnesota property and casualty insurer that acquired USF&G, announced yesterday that it might cut 500 to 600 more jobs by the end of next year, a move that could include some job losses in Baltimore.The reductions were billed as a way to offset the company's falling profits in its commercial insurance business, and would be in addition to 2,000 job cuts already announced when St. Paul Cos. bought USF&G for $3.5 billion in April.Before it was acquired, USF&G employed about 2,500 people at its Mount Washington complex.

All of this talk about Pro Bowl outside linebacker Terrell Suggs playing Sunday against the Houston Texans is pretty funny. But, let's just use some common sense here. If the Ravens somehow lose their minds and put Suggs on the field, do you think it will be for more than five plays? Do you think he would have a significant impact? Now, ask this question: Why would the team put Suggs on the roster Sunday when the Ravens have a bye week coming up? It makes no sense. Suggs might have returned to practice Wednesday, but the Ravens will be very cautious when it comes to putting him on the field.

MIAMI -- Where is the airplane?When a diver descended into the 8-foot deep, muck-encrusted tomb of ValuJet Flight 592 earlier this week, he found no cockpit voice recorder, no human remains, no substantial pieces of the jetliner.What diver Paul Toy did find was persuasive evidence to confirm investigators' worst fears: The DC-9 was virtually pulverized on impact."There is no aircraft in the pit," said Toy, who began -- and soon completed -- the underwater survey at the precise site of impact.

A consultant is recommending that Anne Arundel County quadruple impact fees for single-family homes and quintuple such fees for townhouses as a way to recoup the county's costs for roads, schools and other services. Since builders pass the one-time fees on to buyers, the increases would add nearly $9,000 to the price of a new single-family home and about $8,000 to the price of a new townhouse. But County Executive Janet S. Owens said yesterday that she doubted the increase would be that high for "pragmatic" reasons.
