A New Jersey company announced yesterday that it has agreed to purchase glass molds, customer lists and production contracts of the recently closed Carr Lowrey Glass Co., the last member of the once-shimmering Baltimore glassmaking industry. Terms of the deal were not released. The purchaser, Glass Group Inc. of Millville, N.J., also said it intends to hire an unspecified number of Carr Lowery Glass sales and manufacturing specialists. Those employees will probably be moved to the Glass Group's operations in Park Hills, Mo., said V. Paul Weikel, the company's vice president of engineering.

Bad Boys II is the apotheosis of adolescent junk. Every sequence spews or splats carnage-filled effects. It's over-the-top, but not pleasurably so - it's calculatedly over-the-top. The only way to get off on it is to revel in its prodigal waste of materiel. More bullets get shot, more cars totaled, more dummies crushed or decapitated than in the Beverly Hills Cop and Lethal Weapon series combined. It's fitting that the movie features filthy lucre stuffed in coffins and eviscerated bodies.

For nearly a quarter-century, Mike Drocella has made a living amid the steamy furnaces at the Carr Lowrey Glass Co. on the banks of the Patapsco River, just like his father before him.Enduring as it had been, Drocella's was a way of life under threat -- a threat that grew more ominous last year as the 110-year-old company, lagging behind its competition, struggled to find a buyer.That is, until an unlikely investor entered the picture: Baltimore's Abell Foundation.Recruiting partners to help manage the investment and the company, the nonprofit foundation put up $7 million to buy Carr Lowrey last year.
