New York ushers in a new era in betting on horse racing today when Aqueduct Race Track and Offtrack Betting parlors across the state take bets on seven live races at Aqueduct plus five that are to be televised from Gulfstream Park in Florida, 1,100 miles away.The format was approved last month by the Legislature and was signed into law by Gov. Mario M. Cuomo as the alternative to closing down winter racing in New York for perhaps six weeks.A new law was required because simulcast betting on "imported" races had been limited to 50 races a year under an earlier law adopted to protect live racing.

An icy commute is expected Monday morning, with all of Central Maryland under a winter weather advisory and several hundredths of an inch of ice accumulation possible, according to the National Weather Service. It could be a treacherous start to a strange and varied week of weather. A wintry mix of precipitation is forecast to start in the early morning, but with some warmer air moving in overhead is expected to switch to freezing rain. Though precipitation is expected to be light, it could cause icing problems on bridges, walkways and highways.

Hundreds of years ago, Halloween ornaments were displayed throughout Old World landscapes to scare off the unwelcome spirits of deceased relatives that insisted on paying their living relatives a visit on Halloween. But just like today, some of their Halloween displays weren't as frightening as they could have been, because their plant-life backdrops were mundane. There's nothing particularly frightening about scary-looking Halloween ornaments dangling from or peeking from behind commonplace trees and shrubs.

Forecasters are lowering expectations of a nor'easter's impact in Maryland, canceling a winter weather advisory for northern Baltimore and Harford counties as of 5 p.m. The advisory was in effect through 1 a.m. Thursday, with an inch of snow expected. The advisory previously included Baltimore City, southern Baltimore and Carroll counties and extended through the night to 6 a.m. Thursday. Cecil and Kent counties remain under a winter weather advisory. But the storm has tracked slightly more east than expected, and with a tight gradient of precipitation on its west side, the moisture isn't reaching further west than the Delmarva peninsula and northeastern Maryland, said Jared Klein, a forecaster with the National Weather Service.
