Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette said Monday he wouldn't be engaging in contract extension talks with any players during the season -- meaning the future of pending free agents J.J. Hardy , Nelson Cruz and Nick Markakis will be on hold until after this season ends. “We're not going to be exploring any extensions during the season. We are focused on the club during the season,” Duquette said. “Once the season starts, I think it benefits the team and the players and the fans to keep the focus on the field and the players on the field.” In May 2012, Duquette reached a six-year contract extension with center fielder Adam Jones.

When Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake was campaigning for her job three years ago, she proposed hiring 300 new police officers. In a city perennially worried about crime, the idea was intuitively appealing. Since then, the department has been hiring at a steady clip - on average 184 officers a year, equivalent to about 6 percent of the force. The only trouble is that during that time, the department was losing officers at a rate of 240 a year. The result is that there are actually fewer Baltimore police officers in uniform now than when the mayor took office.

The Parking Authority is soliciting bids from technology companies interested in providing a mobile phone application drivers can use to pay at thousands of parking meters across the city. The quasi-governmental agency has requested bid proposals from companies by mid-May for a three-year contract.

A tentative agreement between Baltimore and its police union would cut vacant positions from the department while raising officer pay, a shift intended to stop officers from leaving for better-paying agencies. The proposed three-year contract marks a sweeping change for an agency that has struggled with vacancies as it lags behind nearby Baltimore and Howard counties in officer pay. Police also said the deal would shift many more officers to patrol units and put more officers on the streets.
