Erickson Living, a Catonsville-based developer and manager of retirement communities, laid off 30 corporate employees earlier this month as part of business restructuring that has been under way since the company emerged from bankruptcy under new ownership in the spring. A spokesman for the company, previously called Erickson Retirement Communities, said half of those employees worked in the Baltimore region and that all were given severance and outplacement help. The spokesman, Dan Dunne, said the company has hired more than 2,000 people since June at various levels, including 50 in the corporate offices.

Just months after Erickson Retirement Communities filed for bankruptcy, the company's new owners say they are poised for expansion with the same business model that seized up along with the housing and credit markets last year. Local entrepreneur Jim Davis, whose Redwood Capital Investments LLC bought Erickson for $365 million this month, said the Catonsville-based company is more financially sound than ever after wiping out most of its debt through the bankruptcy. That will enable Erickson to move forward in the next year with new housing at about a dozen of its existing communities that are not fully developed, he said.

The movie begins with tender vows between an Afghan-war vet, Jim Davis (Christian Bale), and his Mexican betrothed, Marta (Tammy Trull). It ends in carnage on the street. But for most of its meandering running time Harsh Times is just a rough South Central L.A. buddy movie about a slacker named Mike (Freddy Rodriguez) and a psycho (Bale). Rather than face up to the demands of adulthood, they retreat into the feckless, footloose ways of their youth. They don't foresee petty crimes becoming major.

The founder of the Catonsville-based retirement community company that pioneered campus-style continuing-care facilities nationwide faces a $100 million lawsuit brought on by a trustee this month. John C. Erickson, who founded the Baltimore County Erickson Retirement Communities in 1983, is accused, along with his family members and other former board members, of approving company assets for private use. The company has since been bought by a local entrepreneur and operates under new leadership as Erickson Living.
