Health officials have linked three cases of potentially fatal E. coli in Maryland to the nationwide outbreak caused by tainted spinach. They're also investigating a possible link in several other cases, including one death. The three cases, confirmed by DNA tests of the bacteria, occurred in children who have all recovered, said Dr. Michelle Gourdine, deputy secretary for public health services at the state Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. Among the pending cases, Gourdine would identify the person who died only as "an elderly resident."

John Dunning spends several hours a weekend watching cable, mostly sports. But Dunning, 64, a metallurgist in Corvallis, Ore., says he has begun to think that his bill - $40 a month for about 50 channels - is high. He toyed with switching to satellite, but he receives high-speed Internet access through his cable provider, a service that satellite systems do not offer. And "it is a bit of a hassle to switch," he said. Dunning's attitude may not be unusual among cable subscribers. A recent report by the General Accounting Office shows that the average monthly rate for expanded basic cable service is $36.47.

The authority, which operates the E-ZPass system in New Jersey and Delaware, had projected an income of $106 million this year from these scofflaws, who use the special lanes without having enrolled in the computerized toll collection system, which went into use on the New Jersey Turnpike last September.

The novel "The Killer Angels" was turned down by all the major publishers when Michael Shaara, a professor at Florida State University, finished writing it in the early 1970s. It was finally published in 1974 by David McKay Co., a small New York publisher, and was largely unheralded by critics.But in one of the major surprises in publishing, "The Killer Angels" won the Pulitzer Prize in 1975. For Shaara, it was vindication after years of writing in obscurity. "Mike had been pretty discouraged about the acceptance of his writing," says Webb Salmon, a retired professor of English at Florida State who was a good friend of the author.
