WASHINGTON -- U.S. companies added fewer jobs than expected in October and the unemployment rate held at 4.6 percent, as the Labor Department caught investors off guard yesterday by mistakenly releasing its employment report a day early on the Internet.Last month's increase of 116,000 jobs was the smallest gain in seven months and fell short of analysts' forecasts of a gain of 180,000. A revision to September's employment figures showed the economy added 157,000 jobs that month, more than twice the 69,000 previously reported.

State biologists have bagged a bundle of bad news: a 3-inch fingerling that looks a lot like a baby northern snakehead, the invader from overseas that has infested a pond in Crofton. Snakehead stalker Joe Gillespie - the Crofton angler who landed a 26-inch specimen two weeks ago - packed the little green creature in a plastic bag and gave it to Maryland Department of Natural Resources biologists yesterday. Gillespie told them he netted seven more just like it Monday night, said DNR spokesman John Surrick.

NORTH EAST -- The shortnose sturgeon is a little thing, as sturgeon go, and so easily caught that here on the Chesapeake it was fished into oblivion a century ago. It's such a rare fish in the bay that the last confirmed sighting of one was in 1986.So when two fishermen who work the waters at the head of the bay checked their nets Tuesday and found one, it seemed like pretty big news. When they went back the next day and found two more, it was like hitting the sturgeon jackpot.For a fish that's long been on the endangered species list, it was an embarrassment of riches.
