On Sunday morning, I ventured out to do my grocery shopping before the snow storm arrived. Being a native of Western New York, I favor the familiar offerings of Wegmans, so I have little difficulty justifying the drive from Baltimore to Columbia every week. As I was leaving the store, the snow had begun in Columbia, and I anticipated some slow going for the drive home. I progressed up Route 29, and the snow became heavier to the point of obscuring the lane lines. People from snowy areas would not call this heavy snow since visibility was still fair, but it was persistent and a healthy amount creating challenging driving conditions.

NEW YORK - After months of negotiation, the Seneca Nation of Indians and New York state have signed an agreement to open casinos on Indian land in Buffalo and Niagara Falls. The plan must still overcome legal challenges and be approved by the federal Bureau of Indian Affairs. But with the recent signing of a 14-year compact that is estimated to bring several billion dollars in revenue to the Seneca Nation and hundreds of millions of dollars to the state over the life of the agreement, the two casinos came one step closer to reality.
