Top 5: ‘I’ve heard the talk, but I haven’t seen the money yet’ (access required)

A proposed bowling alley in Hunt Valley, in which Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis is a partner, is still looking for financing, and a Baltimore hospital is being sued for Medicare fraud. Those stories and more in this week's business top 5. 1. State readies $9.5M offer to keep Bechtel workers in Frederick - by Nicholas Sohr Maryland is poised to offer Bechtel Corp. $9.5 million to keep the majority of its Frederick County workforce in place until 2018. The engineering and construction management firm, one of the largest employers in the county, has been considering a move to Northern Virginia. “It’s sad that the state has to consider something like this,” said Sen. David R. Brinkley, R-Carroll and Frederick. “You have someone who has been there, and it’s been their worldwide headquarters.” 2. Ray Lewis’ MVP Lanes still looking for financing - by Ben Mook MVP Lanes LLC hired RI Hispanic BancGroup LLC in June because its owner said it could help secure the financing that would help MVP move forward with a planned sports bar and bowling alley in Hunt Valley. MVP Lanes, which counts Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis as a partner, has had to head back to the drawing board to line up financing after RI Hispanic’s promise did not materialize. In the course of the lawsuit against the Providence, R.I.-based company, MVP learned that RI Hispanic has no assets, no relationship with a bank and no trace of the $90,000 it had collected from the developers as a fee.
