The acquisition would allow the company to expand and create as many as 125 new jobs.

The company designs and builds commercial steel vessels and has been in Salisbury for more than 30 years. - Andrea K. Walker

The owners of the Sparrows Point steel mill plan to raze the closed plant, Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz said Thursday, as political leaders from Towson to Washington mourned the loss of a landmark that once employed tens of thousands. The officials, including Gov. Martin O'Malley, vowed to help steelworkers who have lost their jobs. But the head of United Steelworkers Local 9477 was angry that a key part of the plant is being sold to North Carolina-based Nucor Corp. — to be used for spare parts.

When the Defense Department set out to consolidate its domestic bases, Maryland officials sought to win big. They not only prevailed - with Maryland gaining more than any other state from the realignment plan that became law Tuesday - they hit the jackpot. The latest estimates - and they keep growing - are that the plan will bring more than 11,000 new jobs to the Aberdeen Proving Ground and Fort Meade within five years. But that's just the tip of the iceberg. Add another 7,500 new jobs expected at the National Security Agency at Fort Meade.

When it comes to the way we use energy, we are putting our country at risk. America's addiction to foreign oil hurts our economy, aids our enemies and puts our national security at risk. Rather than continuing to send billions overseas for foreign oil, it's time to change course. We should spend money here at home on clean energy sources, which will create new jobs, build new industries and make us more secure. When we invest in clean energy, this means our energy dollars won't go overseas; they'll go to American businesses to strengthen our economy.

Your Sunday article, "Expiring tax breaks loom large" (Nov. 29) reports that Republicans see lower tax rates on wealthy Americans as essential to job creation. The press, when reporting this position, should point out the absurdity of this assertion based on what we have learned from the past. Tax rates on the wealthy were far higher during the Reagan and Clinton years than at present. Job creation was 16 million under Reagan and 23 million under Mr. Clinton. When George W. Bush cut taxes on the wealthy, he managed to create an anemic 3 million new jobs over 8 years.

Gov.Martin O'Malleysays he needs higher taxes to create jobs in Maryland. Since Maryland does not require subcontractors to validate citizenship, most of the new jobs will most likely go to illegals, or new Americans as the governor likes to call them. Most working families in this state cannot afford higher taxes, tolls, and fees. Working people deal with spending cuts every month when the bills come in. It is high time the morons in Annapolis take a lesson from them. The Maryland legislature is lazy and has always taken the easy way out - taxes.
