The state plans to award a contract for up to $20.9 million as it prepares to expand a program that issues tickets to drivers caught on camera speeding in highway work zones. The equipment and management services award to ACS State & Local Solutions Inc. of Germantown, which holds the contract for the existing program, is scheduled to go to the Board of Public Works for approval next week. The contract would permit the state to expand the work zone enforcement program that was authorized by the General Assembly last year.

The Ravens have decided to terminate the contract of Bobbie Williams, the team announced. Looking to find a steady replacement for departed left guard Ben Grubbs, the Ravens signed the veteran guard before the 2012 season. He made six starts and played in 12 games, but was a reserve during the playoffs.   Williams, who turned 36 in September, signed a two-year, $2.925 million contract last spring that included an $800,000 signing bonus. By terminating his contract, the Ravens will free up $800,000 in salary cap space.

Commendations to Johns Hopkins Hospital and members of 1199 SEIU United Healthcare Workers East for their $15 per hour wage agreement ( "Hopkins workers approve contract," July 12). When wages are so low that workers cannot meet the basic needs of their families, it is not only degrading to the individual but non-productive for the employer. By contrast, paying a fair wage manifests self-respect in the employee who rewards the employer with more productivity, less sick days off and more loyalty to the company with less turnover.

Baltimore teachers rejected a contract Thursday that would have provided six-figure salaries for an elite corps but would have tied the pay of all educators to how they perform in the classroom, a vague provision that caused discomfort for many union members. More than 2,000 educators represented by the Baltimore Teachers Union voted on the tentative agreement, which had been hailed as the most innovative in the nation since its details emerged two weeks ago. However, it proved to be one of the most contentious ever in Baltimore, with its overhaul of how teachers are compensated, promoted and evaluated.

The signing came after the city school board voted to unanimously in a special meeting Wednesday night to approve the contract, which overhauls the way teachers are compensated and promoted in the district. School and union officials will begin meeting immediately to appoint committees that will oversee the implementation of the contract, and plan to announce those appointments in January.

Like Ravens running back Ray Rice , Joe Flacco is waiting for some good news regarding a long-term deal with the franchise. And like Rice, the quarterback doesn't have any details on the negotiations. For his part, Flacco - who has one year remaining on the rookie contract that he signed in 2008 - remains unfazed about his future. "I'm not worried about it at all," Flacco said at Lardarius Webb 's charity softball game at Ripken Stadium in Aberdeen on Sunday.

The Orioles have signed left-hander Dontrelle Willis to a minor-league contract, according to an industry source. It is a split contract, which would pay him $700,000 if he remains in the major leagues all season. He is scheduled to report to Sarasota on Wednesday, the source said. Willis, 30, was released by the Phillies last week. He had signed a one-year, $1 million deal with Philadelphia in December. He was auditioning for a bullpen spot this spring, allowing five runs in 2 2/3 innings and recording a 16.87 ERA in three appearances, walking four and striking out none before being released on Friday.
