Like many artists before her, Lisa Su has found inspiration from the intricate patterns and textures found in nature: the red seeds from the inside of a pomegranate, barnacles adhering to a rock. Yet the materials she uses are not beautiful or intricate. They are the stuff we throw away: old newspapers, egg shells, plastic bags, pencil shavings and light bulbs. Su's work, which ranges from the realistic bust of her friend to the abstract paper pulp sculpture that is reminiscent of barnacles, has earned her recognition as one of the top high school visual artists in the nation.

Green Bay, Wis. -- It took two days to find Tom Monfils' body, sunk to the bottom of a giant paper mill pulp vat, a 45-pound weight around his neck. It took 2 1/2 years to charge six co-workers in his murder.When the arrests finally came last month, weary police detectives paused quietly for a beer. The Green Bay Press-Gazette put out a rare special edition. And in a tidy brick house on South Roosevelt Avenue, Joan and Edwin Monfils gave thanks that someone, at last, would have to answer for the death of their son."

The port of Baltimore handled more automobiles, cargo containers and wood pulp in 2013 than ever before, a record-setting performance despite continuing labor unrest on its public docks. Solidifying its place as the nation's No. 1 port for automobile imports and exports, the Maryland Port Administration said Tuesday that it handled 749,100 cars and trucks in 2013, up from 652,000 in 2012. The increase was due in part to newly inked contracts with auto manufacturers, including a five-year deal with Mazda announced in August.

Americans wrote them, but it took the French to figure out what to call them: roman noirs, black novels.Derived from the tough-guy pulps of the '30s and '40s, the American roman noirs had their peculiar heyday in the mid-'50s, when mass-market paperback publishing had just been invented. They were the quintessential bus- and train-station book, less than 200 pages long, meant for tired travelers on all-night rides between trunk towns like Memphis and Texarkana. They looked the same: on the cover, a bosomy blond with a .45 automatic and a cigarette, and on the back a block of copy in red full of words like "vortex" and "whirlwind" and "web of fate" -- but never, ever "literature."

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has asked a federal judge to shut down Westvaco Corp.'s pulp and paper mill in southern Allegany County until the company installs new pollution control equipment and to fine the company hundreds of millions of dollars for allegedly violating clean air laws. The agency charged in a lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Baltimore that Westvaco has continually expanded its plant in Luke since 1981 without obtaining proper federal permits and without installing air pollution controls, causing large increases in emissions of nitrogen oxide and sulfur dioxide.

LONDON - It's another hard day of performance art and clearing out of closets for Michael Landy. Dressed in a blue boiler suit and standing on a scaffold, the 37-year-old British artist is watching as his lifetime's possessions literally pass along a conveyor belt, each object destined for an industrial shredding machine. He is examining them this one last time in company with an audience of strangers. David Bowie records? To be sent to the shredder. An air intake box from a 1988 Saab 900?

A slimmed-down Edna Turnblad shared the stage with her creator, John Waters, last night, much to the delight of scores of star-crazed fans. Well, it wasn't exactly Edna, the zaftig stage mom from Waters' "Hairspray," who took to the stage at the Maryland Institute College of Art . Rather, it was actor John Travolta, who brought Edna to the big screen in the 2007 musical version of Waters' film, up there on the stage. But the crowd embraced him like one of their own. "You've always been my favorite actor," one fan said from the audience, noting that she spent her teen years with pictures of Travolta plastered to her wall.

The Port of Baltimore's public terminals set new marks last year in the handling of vehicles, containers and wood pulp while also posting a strong showing in the areas of general cargo and farm and construction machinery. The figures, released Thursday, indicate that the port has rebounded from the economic slump, Gov. Martin O'Malley said. Port workers processed 612,480 auto imports and exports in 2011 and more than a half-million tons of wood pulp, both records. Container traffic was up 4 percent from 2010, and roll-on/roll-off volume increased 51 percent.

Two cargo categories saw steep declines in the fiscal year that ended in June — farm and construction equipment dropped 31 percent and paper products fell 27 percent. Overall, the port handled 9.1 million tons of cargo in the past fiscal year compared with 9.2 million tons the year earlier.

Certainly anything that increases recycling is a good thing ("Recycling an idea for residents' convenience," Feb. 1). But what is getting lost in the praise of "single stream" is that "collection" is not recycling. Nor is processing. Recycling takes place when the collected materials are made into a product containing recycled content. So what is the amount actually recycled -- the amount used in the making of a new product? Has anyone inquired as to the residue rate at the facility where single stream is processed?

Three months after the hype and headlines, I have finally read Game of Shadows, the book by two San Francisco Chronicle investigative reporters who broke open the Bay Area Laboratory Co-Operative (BALCO) steroid scandal. Before turning the first page, several fellow baseball writers had already shared their feelings about the book. One said it read like a 250-page newspaper article. Another said there was too much track and field and not enough focus on San Francisco Giants slugger Barry Bonds, whose back adorns the front cover.
