As Bill Medley and Bobby Hatfield entered the banquet room, an "Ebb Tide" of memories came flooding back to their followers.

Martin Marietta Corp.'s receipt in November of a $526 million contract from the federal Housing and Urban Development department was unusual, and not only for its size. The 12-year contract was among a dwindling pool of federal non-defense spending awarded to companies in the Baltimore-Washington area last year.More typical was the $5.6 million contract that Cockeysville-based AAI Corp. won in October to improve targeting systems for fighter planes and helicopters.A sharp increase in such defense contracts put the Baltimore-Washington common market firmly in second place in federal spending last year, the Washington/Baltimore Regional Association said yesterday.
