Week two of the Race begins in Iqueque, Chile, the city of eternal sunshine, situated on the edge of a desert and the Pacific Ocean. It's pretty amazing. And it's time to leave. The teams depart around 3 in the morning, and they are sent to a historic ship. The ship doesn't open until the morning, so they bunch up at the dock. Marie, the Ex with the pink hair, orders everyone to line up their backpacks in proper order.

In fact, the owner had been named in court papers as an unindicted co-conspirator.+ The Sun regrets the errors.The federal indictment of Anne Arundel County's biggest bingo hall owner on racketeering, arson and mob-connection charges raises troubling questions about the county's laissez-faire attitude toward for-profit bingo.Is it appropriate for the county to permit a form of gambling that is tailor-made for the mob's money-laundering needs, one outlawed everywhere in the country save Indian reservations?

Pieces of column too short to use . . .Let the chips fall where they may . . . To raise funds, Our Lady of Mount Carmel High School is sponsoring several activities the weekend of Dec. 6, most of them conventional: a reunion dance, an ice cream sundae night, a pancake breakfast, a Christmas craft show. The highlight, however, is decidedly unconventional: Betsy Bingo. As far as I can ascertain, Betsy Bingo is an exotic game of chance played in the great outdoors. What happens is, large squares are arranged on a soccer field to form a giant outdoor Bingo card.

In Carroll County, betting on billiards is illegal - unless the game is held in a senior center on a day other than Sunday and the prize is capped at $5. Those rules are part of the hodgepodge of regulations enshrined in Title 13 of Maryland's criminal code. It governs local gambling operations, ranging from tip jars in Western Maryland to slot machines at Eastern Shore veterans' halls to commercial bingo in Calvert County. The staff of the Maryland Lottery and Gaming Control Agency laid out the issue of inconsistent and confusing local laws Thursday at the first meeting of a new General Assembly committee charged with oversight of gambling in Maryland.

Patapsco Bingo in Baltimore on Thursday lost its court bid to stop city police from enforcing a ban on Internet "sweepstakes" parlors offering cash prizes on games that play like slot machines. After a Circuit Court hearing, Judge Jeffrey M. Geller denied a request by the business' operator, BBB Management Inc., for a temporary restraining order, saying the business did not show that "immediate, substantial and irreparable harm will result" to the operation before a full hearing can be held.
