Hurricanes Katrina and Rita were the cause of at least half of stillbirths reported in the areas hardest hit by the storms, a new study out of the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy has found. The study by Ian Breunig found that stillbirths were highest in parishes that suffered the most damage during the 2005 storms. The numbers of live births was nearly 40 percent lower in 2007 than in 2004 in these areas. Live births fell 79 percent in areas where more than half of residences were damaged.

While most Marylanders will be shoveling snow and cursing freezing rain Monday, a seasonal chain will be doing operating at the opposite end of the spectrum. They'll be selling ice. Owners of about half of Maryland's Rita's Italian Ice locations are facing a tough decision, just two days after opening for the 2014 season. Michele Hoover, owner of the Dundalk location, opened Saturday. "Not the best timing," she said with a laugh. "The weather is not cooperating so far. " But one aspect of being a Rita's owner makes a snow day less than a laughing matter.
