County Executive Janet S. Owens has finally achieved labor peace, as Anne Arundel County's largest union has overwhelmingly adopted a new three-year contract. Most of the union's 850 members, who include public works and maintenance employees, will receive 11.5 percent raises over three years. For others, it will take longer to see the entire raise. Wednesday night's 179-22 vote by Local 582 of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees came eight months after members rejected a less generous three-year offer that grew out of acrimonious talks last spring.

Professional and technical employees of Anne Arundel County voted yesterday to join the Teamsters, a decision that comes days after County Executive Janet S. Owens proposed sharply increasing the pay scales of many of the county's nonunionized employees. The vote was 23-18, said William Mowrey, business manager for Teamsters Local 103 - "not resounding but it was a definite yes" to create a 60-member unit within the local. In the wake of last year's double-digit pay raises for police and firefighters that left other employees feeling undervalued, Owens is proposing pay scale raises for professionals and supervisors.

Gov. William Donald Schaefer's decision to cut $150 million in local aid leaves Carroll's commissioners with the extremely unpleasant job of deciding which of the county's programs to pare.While they expect about $5 million in cuts, the precise form of those reductions is still unclear. They do, however, accept these cuts as being real and not another of the governor's bluffs designed to rattle legislators.Anticipating this latest round of budget reductions, county budget officers have already compiled a detailed analysis of county spending over the past few years.

Player of the Year Laura Shand, Liberty: This multidimensional junior was a huge cog in the Liberty machine that devoured county competition this season and advanced to the Class 3A state semifinals. The setter consistently set the table for Liberty's big hitters, averaging 7.6 assists a game, good for second in the county. What made her so special, however, was that she also led the county in blocks, averaging more than 1.1 a game despite standing just 5 feet 9. Her dual functionality kept her constantly on the move, often getting into position for a set, then spinning around in an instant to defend the net. What's more, Shand was one of the area's top servers, putting 94 percent of her balls in play.
