Worthington Industries warned state officials Wednesday that it will close its 54-employee steel processing plant in Essex next year, a move that follows the collapse last year of the nearby Sparrows Point steel mill. "With the consolidation of the steel industry, many of the mills that previously supplied the Baltimore facility have closed, negatively impacting the supply chain there," Worthington said in a U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission filing. "The Company has concluded that it can more efficiently service its customers in the Mid-Atlantic Region from other Worthington facilities and processing partners.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- Baltimore Orioles third baseman Craig Worthington agreed to terms on a one-year contract yesterday, accepting the same salary for 1991 that he earned last year.Worthington, who batted .226 with eight home runs and 44 RBI in 1990, will make $207,500. He had more than doubled his salary the year before with a rookie season that featured 15 homers and 70 RBI, but reported to camp late last year and struggled from start to finish.His bargaining position was diminished further by the presence of third-base prospect Leo Gomez, who was the most dangerous hitter in the International League last year and added to his credentials with a solid performance in the Dominican Winter League.

Immediately after the San Diego Padres acquired third baseman Gary Sheffield from the Milwaukee Brewers, former Oriole Craig Worthington marched into general manager Joe McIlvaine's office and demanded a trade. The Padres told him they would try to accommodate him."Now that they have another third baseman, I'm no use to them," said Worthington, who hit his first home run of the spring earlier Friday. "I've got to play every day."I just don't know why they did this. At the very least, give me a good month into the season to see what I can do. They have no idea what I could do."

It's hard not to think: Why hasn't all this gorgeous landscape been ruined, as close as it is to downtown Baltimore? It's taken me a while to realize why the areas such as the Worthington and Greenspring valleys remain so unspoiled.

Worthington Elementary School in Ellicott City will soon receive nearly 90 percent of its electrical power from the sun. Howard County Board of Education officials say they've partnered with the county's Department of Public Works to place about 2,000 solar panels on a landfill next to Worthington Elementary that will supply the school with solar energy year-round. The project, which will be discussed at Worthington's Media Center on Tuesday night, is a boost to a school that already employs environmentally conscious practices such as Waste-Free Wednesdays, when students are encouraged to pack meals in reusable containers and use cloth napkins.
