More than 500 Baltimore-area workers will be out of work during the next two months as the unemployment rate in the state continues to climb amid the recession. Mail services provider Pitney Bowes is closing its mail presorting facility in Baltimore by the end of the month, resulting in 70 employees losing their jobs, the company said Wednesday. The move is intended to help streamline operations in the Eastern region, Pitney Bowes said in a statement.

In the Region CareFirst trying to maintain ties to Delaware plan A CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield spokesman said yesterday that the health insurer is seeking a way to maintain an affiliation with Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Delaware in light of conflicting rulings from insurance regulators in Delaware and Maryland and from a Delaware court. "We've got to reconcile the differences of the regulators and the courts in the different jurisdictions," Jeffery W. Valentine said. The Delaware plan has been an affiliate of CareFirst since 2000, and was seeking a looser connection that would allow it to sever itself from the regional insurer if it chose.

The mention of Shakespeare usually brings to mind drama, death, and lurid romance -- not fun family outings. This year, the Chesapeake Shakespeare Company is hoping to change that perception. In addition to alternating performances of the romantic comedy As You Like It and the historical drama Henry V, the company will offer activities designed to introduce children to The Bard. Performances of As You Like It begin the season this weekend at Patapsco Female Institute Historic Park in Ellicott City.
