DETROIT -- General Motors Corp., the world's largest automaker, said it will build a $558 million Cadillac assembly plant in Lansing, Mich., its first new U.S. factory in 14 years. The plant will produce annually more than 200,000 luxury vehicles, such as the Cadillac Catera, and employ 1,500 workers within three years. The move comes after a record sales year for automakers, with U.S. consumers buying 16.96 million cars and light trucks in 1999. The factory, scheduled to open next year, is designed to let GM switch to other models on short notice as consumer tastes change.

Pity poor Lansing Avenue. One block and about 20 homes just off Broadway and North Avenue was all city planners gave it, and it couldn't even sustain that. Residents say it was a decent place to live until the drugs came, which also led to shootings and set fires. The good residents got fed up, the bad ones didn't care, everyone moved out, and nature took over. For years, pigeons have claimed one of the roofless brick rowhomes. Another is called the "Tree House" because a trunk has burst through the second-story window, prying a concrete block addition away from the main structure and sprouting leafy branches that provide a cool, if unwanted, canopy.

DETROIT - General Motors Corp., the largest automaker, plans to delay by as much as a year the start of production at a new $1 billion plant near Lansing, Mich. The company blamed slower demand for cars and trucks. The automaker was initially scheduled to begin production at the Delta Township factory in 2004, spokeswoman Renee Rashid-Merem said yesterday. General Motors is determining what models to build at the plant in view of lower industrywide sales and other market conditions. The Detroit automaker has reduced production an average of 18 percent in the first half of the year to reduce inventories of new cars and light trucks on dealer lots.

Injecting an added element of uncertainty into the Howard County school board race, Stephen C. Bounds said yesterday that even if re-elected this year, he would be willing to leave mid-term to take the right superintendent's job. Bounds, who is finishing the final year of his first six-year term, was named Monday a semi-finalist for superintendent of the Lansing school district in Lansing, Mich., an 18,000-student system. The 44-year-old Woodbine attorney will learn later in the month if he gets the job. But even if he isn't selected, Bounds -- who has applications out for jobs other than Lansing -- said he would continue to look for a job as superintendent of schools.

HOLLYWOOD - Sherry Lansing, a Hollywood pioneer who for three decades has been one of the most powerful figures in the movie business, plans to step down as chairwoman of Paramount Pictures when her contract expires at the end of next year. According to a source familiar with the situation, Lansing will stay long enough to help choose her successor and to aid in the transition. But after 12 years in one of the most high-pressure jobs in the business, Lansing has made it known that she does not plan to seek another entertainment industry job. Lansing's decision comes as she finds herself having to prove to her new boss, Viacom Inc. co-President Tom Freston, that she can reverse the fortunes of the struggling studio.

Up until the final out was made last night, when Delino DeShields' fly ball failed to touch the Camden Yards grass in left field, catcher Brook Fordyce was certain the Orioles would get a hit. Even as the strikeouts mounted and a succession of batters returned to the dugout, he believed they somehow would get to Hideo Nomo. He wasn't alone in this thinking, but they never did, in large part because Mike Lansing laid a glove on them. A defensive replacement, Lansing made a lunging catch of a pop-up by Mike Bordick in shallow center field with one out in the ninth.

When did Michigan State's Morris Peterson become The Man? Ask his family and they'll tell the story of a 5-year-old Peterson who believed he was already a man until he had to lead his family into their darkened house one day. He cried and begged not to be a grown-up yet, but a lifelong nickname stuck: Man. Ask Peterson and he'll recall the time two months ago, when Peterson had a Chinese symbol emblazoned on his chest. It was a tattoo signifying "Man," a permanent reminder of how a former role player turned into this season's Big Ten Player of the Year.

If women in Hollywood have made any inroads into what has always been a man's world -- and empirical evidence says they have -- you certainly wouldn't know it by picking up the latest copy of Vanity Fair.Outraged industry folks -- males as well as females -- say the magazine's current special issue on Hollywood is sexist and demeaning to women, who are largely depicted in suggestive high-fashion undergarments, or high-fashion designer-wear made to look like undergarments.A group photo of top screenwriters overlooks women altogether.
