The views are gorgeous. " Built of brick in true Southern Colonial style, the house is pleasingly symmetrical.

Henry Orenstein, perhaps the father of televised poker where the audience can actually see when a player pretends to have a good hand, knows a few things about running a bluff. More than 60 years ago, his life literally depended on it. And so did the lives of his brothers and several dozen other prisoners of a Nazi concentration camp. For most of World War II, the 82-year-old Orenstein - who developed and patented the camera concept that allows TV viewers to see poker players' hole cards - was held in a succession of five such horror camps.

Bluff, Utah. -- In the old town jail, within earshot of the tractor-trailers and recreational vehicles that grind along Route 163, stands Bluff's recently-opened symbol of hope, self-reliance and defiance -- a one-room public library.About 2 1/2 years ago, Pat Cook called up her friend and neighbor Rosalie Goldman, proprietor of the Bluff Bed and Breakfast, and said she was sick of driving 25 miles to Blanding and back just to return a book. Sure, the county had a bookmobile, but it stopped by only once every two weeks and carried a limited selection.

Every kid knows that falling off a cliff is never good, but what about a "fiscal cliff" - how would that feel? Americans may indeed find out, if Congress is unable to pass a budget plan prior to Jan. 1. So, what's at stake if such an event occurs? Plenty. First, some background. Members of both political parties have spent beyond the nation's means for many years. This economic fact of life is a bit more embarrassing for Republicans, since most GOPers at least try to talk a good game of fiscal sense.

On March 9, Gov. Martin O'Malleysaid he is likely to veto a medical marijuana law if the Maryland General Assembly passes one. His spokeswoman said he is concerned about a Feb. 9, 2012 letter from Charles Oberly, Delaware's U.S. attorney, to Gov. Jack Markell, threatening to prosecute Delaware officials as common drug traffickers if they carry out their state's medical marijuana law. Governor O'Malley should look carefully at this letter....

With time running out for Congress to raise the federal debt limit or see the nation face fiscal calamity and an almost certain end to the tenuous economic recovery, President Barack Obama has taken the lead on the issue with a proposal that accomplishes far more to reduce the nation's budget deficit than the Republicans have been demanding. It is tilted heavily toward spending cuts rather than tax increases, perhaps too much so. But it would both solve the immediate problem of the nation's debt limit and substantially address a long-term threat to American prosperity.

When Penn National Gaming bought the bankrupt Rosecroft Raceway this year, it promised to resume live harness racing there for the first time in nearly three years. To be sure, the giant national gambling conglomerate made clear its intent to also seek slot machines or other kinds of expanded gambling there. But the commitment to resuming racing sounded unconditional: "As the largest operator of pari-mutuel facilities in the country, and the host to an industry high 1,300 live racing events annually, we are uniquely qualified and look forward to working with Rosecroft stakeholders to attempt to restore live racing," the company's CEO, Peter M. Carlino, said in a news release after the purchase was finalized.

Allen Smith scored 14 points, including a pair of 3-pointers during Arkansas-Pine Bluff's second-half surge to a 61-44 victory over Winthrop (19-14) in the NCAA tournament's opening game in Dayton, Ohio. The Golden Lions (18-15) will play Duke - the No. 1 seed in the West - on Friday in Jacksonville, Fla., a stunning development for a team that lost its first 11 games of the season - all on the road - before rallying to earn the Southwestern Athletic Conference title and its first NCAA tournament berth.

President Bush is threatening to veto legislation that would extend a program that provides health care to 6 million children of the working poor and that would add enough money to cover 4 million additional children who are without health insurance. Democratic congressional leaders should respond: Go ahead, make our day. Picking on children whose parents are struggling financially is hardly a winning issue for the president or his party. In fact, so many Republicans are likely to support the measure when it comes up for a vote in the House tomorrow and Senate later this week that Congress may be able to override a veto.

IMAGINE a poker game in which one of your opponents lays down a big bet, and you're so sure he's bluffing that it's very tempting to call him on it. But you also know he's packing a gun and, if you clean him out, he's just crazy enough to use that weapon. You're very well armed, but some of the other players at the table are much less able to defend themselves and are sitting much closer to this dangerous loser. What a predicament. Do you call the lunatic's bluff and risk setting him off?

Los Angeles. -- In the phrase official Washington uses when it is confused, we are getting ''mixed signals'' from China. The masters of Beijing release a dissident here and arrest two over there. They speak softly on trade and carry their big stick on Tibet and other subjects of concern to Americans, including the shipment of arms all over the world and the use of prison labor to make products for shipment to the United States.We get even, so to speak, by sending mixed signals back.Last week Secretary of State Warren Christopher traveled through Asia saying that if Chinese human-rights violations continue, the United States will probably cancel China's most-favored-nation status -- essentially threatening to raise tariffs on the booming China-to-U.

LAKE CITY, PA. / / Erie Bluffs State Park is Pennsylvania's newest and the 117th in the state system. The still-wild tract 12 miles west of Erie and just east of the Ohio line is long on potential and short on amenities. There are no facilities, no trails, no toilets, no signs. There is a small unmarked parking lot off state Route 5, but that's just about it. The nature-based park -- it was dedicated by Gov. Edward G. Rendell in mid-2004 -- features the largest tract of undeveloped land on Lake Erie along Pennsylvania's 60 miles of shoreline.
