Finally it's spring. That means baseball, hay fever and the start of painting season. "May through September are the biggest months for paint sales," says Mark Sposito, vice president of marketing for Sherwin-Williams' Eastern Division. As temperatures rise, so do the number of home painting projects, he notes. The Sherwin-Williams paint factory on Hollins Ferry Road is operating 24 hours a day, five days a week. Soon the plant will be working around the clock on weekends as well, says plant manager Mike Levitsky.

I'm confused about choosing a color to paint my kitchen. I've heard that green is the color of the year. And then I hear about gray being the new neutral. What are the best colors to paint the kitchen? A kitchen should be an inviting gathering space, so warmer or brighter tones are ideal, such as deep ivories, rich coppers, luscious reds, golden yellows and yellow-greens. Be sure to take countertops, appliances and floors into consideration when selecting your color. You'll want something that complements these accents and flows naturally into the surrounding rooms of your home.

Paint calculators that help gauge how much paint is needed are available online. 2. Take it one room at a time, starting with the most frequently used spaces, such as a bedroom or living room. 3. First paint the ceiling, then the walls and finally the trim. 4. Test out a new color by applying it to a small piece of foam board or poster board.

The day before he got the phone call that he had been anticipating for months, LaQuan Williams' patience, tried and tested throughout his football-playing life, had just about run out. He was holding a part-time job at a Sherwin-Williams store in Washington, manning the cash register, mixing paint and labeling products. It was the last place that Williams expected to be, but he needed to pay the bills and support his infant daughter, Layla. He was still working out and staying in shape.

The Sherwin-Williams Co. has agreed to pay $570,000 to settle alleged hazardous-waste violations at its southwest Baltimore paint plant, the Environmental Protection Agency announced Tuesday. EPA cited the Cleveland-based company for illegally storing hazardous wastes, including waste paint, resins and aerosol containers, at its factory in the 2300 block Hollins Ferry Road. A June 2009 inspection found some wastes in damaged, leaking and improperly maintained 55-gallon drums and tanks, according to the EPA. The government accused the company of storing wastes for more than 90 days in violation of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, failure to date and properly label the containers, failure to properly close them and keep them from leaking, failure to inspect them regularly and failure to respond immediately to wastes leaking from some rusted or damaged drums.
