(AP) - Republican gubernatorial hopeful Rob Astorino won't be getting any help from New Jersey Governor Chris Christie in his uphill battle to unseat Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo.

CONCORD, N.Y. (AP) - A Lancaster woman is hospitalized after a pickup hit her husband's motorcycle yesterday afternoon, knocking her 30 feet into a creek in Concord, south of Buffalo. Erie County authorities say Barbara Yocum was rescued by the pickup's driver and is in intensive care. Her husband was treated for a leg injury.

SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. (AP) - A Sarasota Springs couple faces drug charges after a police raid on their home turned up more than 100 marijuana plants.
