One of the colts entered in Saturday's 138th running of the Preakness Stakes can lay claim to a distinction not shared by seven others: He's actually finished ahead of the expected favorite Orb in a race. Titletown Five, one of three Preakness entries trained by Hall of Famer D. Wayne Lukas, and Orb were both entered in a seven-furlong, maiden special weight race for 2-year-olds at Saratoga last Aug. 18. Maiden special weights are for horses that have never won a race in their career.

YORK, Pa. -- In other cities, the mayor gets arrested, and it's for putting his imbecile brother-in-law on the city payroll or extorting a kickback on the garbage contract or, the worst-case scenario until now, smoking crack with hookers in a hotel room wired for sound and video by the FBI. In York, our mayor gets arrested, and it's in connection with murder. Well, Mayor Charlie Robertson always wanted to put York on the map, to attract attention to our fair city, to put York in the spotlight.

Maryland lost a five-state battle for a key economic-development plum yesterday, as fast-growing Seattle coffee chain Starbucks Corp. said it would open a coffee roasting and distribution plant in York, Pa.

NEW YORK -- The other night in one of the city's most popular midtown steakhouses, every table on two floors was filled and there was standing room only at the restaurant's three bars. It was a balmy, shirtsleeves night uncommon for October, and New York was back. Or so it seemed at this one prominent feeding and watering hole, and on the busy midtown streets, about a month after the two terrorist attacks that had turned lower Manhattan's financial district into a war zone. As debris movers, firefighters and police continued to toil there, much of the rest of New York seemed to be heeding President Bush's advice to "get back to normal."
