Laid-off Sparrows Point workers and retirees from the steel mill should soon be able to sign up for health insurance through a plan set up in another steelmaking region. Mill owner RG Steel - which stopped benefits Aug. 31 - asked for court approval Thursday to allow the Wheeling-Pittsburgh Steel Corporation Retiree Benefits Plan to accept workers and retirees from Sparrows Point and its other facilities. The United Steelworkers union agreed to expand eligibility in the plan, and RG Steel said it doesn't think court approval is necessary, though it asked for it just in case.

WHEN JOHN SAUNDERS saw the scene at the Palace at Auburn Hills last Friday, he had a visceral reaction. Quite visceral, in fact. Saunders, host of ESPN's NBA studio show, saw players and fans battling in the stands and on the floor. But he also saw red. He laid the blame on the paying customers, saying the fans involved in the melee were "a bunch of punks." In the days that followed, Saunders would soften his stance, saying the Indiana Pacers who went after the crowd also were in the wrong, but in a phone interview Tuesday, he explained his initial harsh response had much to do with his own unfortunate brush with an ugly crowd 27 years ago. In 1977, Saunders was a college hockey player for Ryerson University in Toronto.
