With demand falling for the white pigment used in everything from house paint to U.S. currency, Millennium Chemicals Inc. reported yesterday that it lost $12 million in the third quarter. The loss follows the September idling of part of the company's Hawkins Point titanium dioxide plant in the southern part of Baltimore and the layoff of about 250 employees. The section that was shuttered makes pigment for the paper industry, while the part that remains in operation makes pigment for paints and plastics.

Millennium Chemicals Inc., which idled a large part of its Hawkins Point operation and announced layoffs of 250 workers in June, warned yesterday that third-quarter losses would be greater than expected because of overcapacity and weak demand in a slumping U.S. economy. The Red Bank, N.J.-based company said its results will be "slightly below the lower end of the range" of analysts' third-quarter expectations. Analysts surveyed by Zacks Investment Research Inc. had expected a loss of 17 cents to 32 cents a share.

Several months ago I started taking 160 milligrams of saw palmetto extract daily to slow the progression of male pattern baldness. To my surprise, the regimen seems to work. There is less hair in the bathroom sink, and I have noticed new growth on the temples. I haven't experienced any noticeable side effects, such as loss of libido. I looked in the medical literature for long-term side effects but found none. The longest clinical trial (for prostate enlargement) lasted two years. Do you know of any health hazards with saw palmetto extract?

It was a sunny day last month when Dick Gelfman finally dusted off his "sinister blue" Harley-Davidson motorcycle and went for a spin. A ride to a friend's house in nearby Mount Hebron wouldn't have meant much last year. But after what Gelfman has been through the past year, this was monumental. The affable newsman - whose televised "Get Gelfman" segment on WJZ-TV has made him a go-to guy for Maryland consumers with complaints - has struggled to recover from the fiery automobile crash one year ago yesterday that killed a teen-age girl and seriously injured him and his wife, Howard Circuit Judge Lenore R. Gelfman.
