At the time, the union had sent a letter to the state saying negotiations had stalled. Negotiation teams from both TAAAC and the schools met again in early October and said they again were unable to reach an agreement. Discussions will now move into a mediated process.

Annapolis officials are considering putting speed cameras near schools, a move that may reduce the number and severity of traffic accidents and may cost the lead-footed $40. “I think it’s a good idea,” said county police officer and city Alderman Mathew Silverman. The plans are preliminary, and it’s uncertain how many cameras would be used or where they would be posted in the city. The cameras must receive City Council approval first and there are other legal requirements that must be completed, including a published notification and road signs warning that the cameras are in use. There’s also a 30-day grace period once they are in place.

By Joshua McKerrow — The Capital BAY BRIDGE SCARY? Check out some of the competition AP file photo The William Preston Lane Jr. Memorial Bay Bridge, better known In these parts simply as the Bay Bridge, was recently named one of the world’s scariest bridges by Travel + Leisure magazine. By SHANTE^ WOODARDS Staff Writer It’s been said that the Bay Bridge provides one of the best views of the Chesapeake Bay. Not everyone would agree with that statement, however.

In the October issue, the magazine lists 27 of the worlds’ scariest bridges.
