DALLAS -- Pro football owners left here yesterday without a hoped-for labor agreement, but said they were close and getting closer to a deal with their players.The players, however, suggested it may be time to stop talking and resume slugging it out in court.The owners said they were prepared for that also, and, to prove the point, announced preparations to unilaterally impose a plan governing the movement of players between teams.For Baltimore, a delay in a negotiated settlement would appear to further delay the league's plan to expand.

Service workers fighting for higher wages will begin negotiating again with The Johns Hopkins Hospital April 30 during a meeting set up by a federal mediator, according to Hopkins and the union representing the workers.

The Federal Mediation & Conciliation Service stepped in after the two sides continued to disagree. Union leaders have said workers could strike again if an agreement is not reached.

Orioles center fielder Adam Jones is a dedicated tweeter. When he's not at the ballpark, he shares photos of his dynamic taste in food and his love for his dog Missy to his more than 133,000 followers on Twitter. He often offers clever short quips after games - he called the Orioles' series in Arizona, in which they lost all three games in walk-off fashion, a root canal without Novocaine. Jones, whose Twitter handle is @SimplyAJ10, said he aims to give fans a glimpse into the life of a major league baseball player.

There has been much back-and-forth recently on The Sun's op-ed page over which party is the more egregious tax abuser, Republicans or Democrats. As a moderate, registered independent, I often get a chuckle when these two sides begin slinging their rancorous stones at each other on this matter. It is like listening to children arguing which came first, the chicken or the egg. Owen Cummings

"Compromise or confrontation?" So ran a recent headline on CNN.com, above a story about the "fiscal cliff" and a confrontational-looking picture of President Barack Obama. The implication was clear: Our leaders must compromise or confront each other on the precipice. Even clearer, in the view of most Americans, was the solution: Compromise, already! Endless confrontation has made the need for compromise as obvious as the election results. Or has it? Actually, decades of negotiation research have cast doubt on the conventional wisdom, showing that compromise vs. confrontation represents a false choice, and compromise a false ideal.

A new round of spending by Penn National Gaming and MGM Resorts International has pushed the ad war in the referendum over expanded gambling into record territory, eclipsing the $34 million raised for the 2006 governor's race. In a filing posted Tuesday with the State Board of Elections, the ballot committee financed by Penn National reported that its outlay for the effort to defeat Question 7 has reached $21.6 million — $18 million of which has been spent. Meanwhile, a pro-expansion committee reported that it has spent $17.7 million.

Grochal, said Tuesday that two proposals for the bankruptcy court to consider recently fell through, although the major investors involved in each one are interested in working on new arrangements. He said negotiations are continuing, with a hearing scheduled Wednesday morning U.S. Bankruptcy Court to either present a plan or request more time.

Joe Linta , the agent for Joe Flacco , will meet Saturday with Ravens Vice President of Football Administration Pat Moriarty and team president Dick Cass to begin discussing the framework of a contract extension for the quarterback. Flacco is set to enter the final year of his rookie contract and top Ravens' officials, including owner Steve Bisciotti , have said that it's an offseason priority to extend the quarterback before the start of the season. Linta is taking a realistic approach to the meeting, telling The Sun last week that he plans on discussing the framework for a deal but he doesn't expect to exchange salary figures with Moriarty, who is the salary cap specialist in the Ravens' front office.

It's unlikely Obama will ever "sell out" Israel. However, he is doing some much-needed consciousness-raising. The American people have been brainwashed for over half a century about the facts surrounding the creation of the state of Israel and its current expansionist policies, such as the settlement push, that have infuriated the country's neighbors. Frankly, I have tired of the Middle East altogether and just wish my tax dollars could be spent elsewhere. I've watched the U.S. shell out trillions to countries halfway around the world when the entire region would have been better off without our meddling.

DENVER - Qwest Communications International Inc., the largest local-telephone service provider in the Northwest, and the Communications Workers of America, which represents 60 percent of its workers, remain at odds on central elements in a new contract more than a day after the old one expired. Contract talks between the company and the CWA are "stalled," said Candice Johnson, a union spokeswoman. She said the two sides are "still very far apart on key issues." Qwest negotiators averted a walkout after failing to reach an agreement before a 12:01 a.m. deadline Sunday, when the old contract ended.

Baltimore's teachers and school officials appear close to a tentative agreement in negotiations that have extended past the June 30 contract expiration. The two sides decided last week to extend the contract for a month while negotiations for the new two-year pact continue. Both sides said they expect to have a tentative agreement that could be distributed to teachers and voted on by the board and the system's 7,000 teachers in early fall. The two sides are discussing salaries, benefits and work conditions, including time allotted for teacher training, and teacher evaluations, said Mark D. Smolarz, the school system's chief financial officer.

Osama bin Laden's death in Pakistan last week at the hands of Navy SEALs was a moral and symbolic victory for the U.S., but it complicated the already tense relationship between the Obama administration and Islamabad. The feeling in Washington is that the Pakistanis either were complicit in hiding bin Laden or are simply incompetent. Pakistanis, meanwhile, are furious that the Americans violated their country's sovereignty by mounting a covert mission deep inside their territory without the government's knowledge or consent.

A murdered screenwriter who narrates from the grave. An idealistic script reader who thinks she can work her way up in a studio on smarts alone. A producer who would push a baseball project if he could turn it into a musical for a female star. Those are just the "normal" characters in "Sunset Boulevard," the anchor of the opening-day bill for "You Be Cinema," the University of Baltimore's new film series at UB's Student Center Performing Arts Theater, 21 W. Mount Royal Ave. Billy Wilder's coruscating pop tragedy, streaked with horror and black comedy, is still the ultimate Hollywood movie, 60 years after its premiere.
