A Baltimore City Councilwoman says she has backed out of talks with Walmart officials about worker pay at a proposed store in Remington after they asked her to withdraw her support for a bill that would require all major retailers to pay a "living wage. " Councilwoman Belinda Conaway said she had attempted to negotiate higher wages for store employees, but that she refused Walmart's request that she abandon the living-wage bill proposed by Councilwoman Mary Pat Clarke. "You get to a point where you don't have anything to negotiate with," said Conaway, who represents portions of West Baltimore, including the proposed site of the 25th Street Station development.

Baltimore Circuit Court clerk and frequent mayoral candidate Frank M. Conaway Sr. announced Friday that he plans to seek the city's highest office again next year. Conaway, 77, who has been involved in city politics for four decades, said in a statement that his decision to run was inspired by his recent primary victory in his re-election campaign. As clerk of the court, Conaway oversees a budget of $10.5 million and a staff of more than 250. "I owe no allegiances to special interest groups, have no political ax to grind, and will work with robust energy and years of relevant experience to bridge the gaps in the economic, education, health care, criminal justice and community pride that presently divides our city into two camps — the haves and the have-nots," Conaway said in the statement.

Frank Conaway and family are giving away 500 cameras Thursday and urging law-abiding Baltimoreans to use them to snap pictures of crime in progress. "Frank M. Conaway, Clerk of the Circuit Court, today called on Baltimoreans in high crime areas to shoot back at criminals — with cameras, not guns," begins the news release. "People in the neighborhoods know where crime is taking place. I am hopeful that they can discreetly document dangerous situations with these cameras. They can either develop the pictures themselves or they can turn the cameras over to the police.

A city councilwoman wants police leaders to explain the disciplinary process for officers involved in off-duty incidents, a hearing spurred by concerns over the recent shooting in which an off-duty officer has been charged with first-degree murder. Councilwoman Belinda K. Conaway, a Democrat whose district includes parts of West and Northwest Baltimore, is requesting a hearing in which she also wants to explore possible changes to policies requiring officers to carry their weapons while off the job, and will request that the commissioner compile a report on the number of incidents over the past five years in which "civilians or officers have been harmed or killed by off-duty officers."

The Conaway political dynasty seems to be building a fleet of unusual campaign vehicles. Last year, the family of four officeholders bought a 10-year-old Chevy Astro van and tricked it out with a $2,700 "wrap" emblazoned with images of the whole gang: Circuit Court Clerk Frank Conaway Sr ., City Register of Wills Mary Conaway , state Del. Frank Conaway Jr. and City Councilwoman Belinda Conaway . This year, it's a $1,000 Stand-N-Ride...

Frank M. Conaway Sr., the elected clerk of the Baltimore Circuit Court, thinks the city's jury commissioner has bungled the way people are summoned for jury duty. He wants to take over the job, and he argued his case Tuesday before the House Judiciary Committee in Annapolis. No one was there to oppose him. Conaway has the backing of Del. Curt Anderson, a Democrat who chairs the city delegation and agreed to sponsor legislation fulfilling the court clerk's desires. Conaway hugged the committee's tough-minded chairman, Joseph F. Vallario Jr., who made sure the former two-term delegate (he served 1971 to 1975 and from 1979 to 1983)

Some people have lived in Baltimore for decades and have never been summoned to jury duty. Others have lived here just a few years and seem to get the notices as frequently as annual tax bills. Frank M. Conaway, the clerk of the Circuit Court for Baltimore City, is tired of the complaints. He said dead people have been called to pass judgment on their fellow citizens, and summonses have been delivered to empty lots and to addresses of people who moved years earlier. And so Conaway - a one-time mayoral candidate - is now trying to stage a legislative coup at the state Administrative Office of the Courts.

Bealefeld III to a public hearing to discuss documenting incidents in which officers have contact with citizens but do not make an arrest.
