The main rivals of San Francisco in the race to host the America’s Cup say they will not have a bid to hand over to race organizers by the Friday deadline, but city leaders are not declaring victory.

A North Carolina jewelry store owner made a $400,000 bet against a white Christmas — and lost. Alan Perry, owner of Perry’s Emporium in Wilmington, promised refunds for everything bought at his store between Nov. 26 and Dec. 11 if more than 3 inches of snow fell in Asheville on Christmas Day.
