Morning Roundup: Tuesday, Oct. 19

Good morning.

The National Weather Service has forecast a chance of showers this morning with a high near 56 in the Buffalo area. A chance of rain will show up again Wednesday.

Here's a look at a few of the latest headlines:

- The debate between seven candidates for governor in Hempstead on Monday will likely be more recalled for one-liners and comic relief than a substantive discussion of policy, The News' Tom Precious writes. A group of minor-party candidates questioned everything from Andrew M. Cuomo's integrity to his environmental policies in the debate.

Meanwhile, Republicans are pleading for more debates.

- The operator of a popular Elmwood Avenue restaurant, Casa-Di-Pizza, was ordered Monday to deliver 12 sheet pizzas to the City Mission once a week for a year as community service in his sales tax fraud case, News Staff Reporter Matt Gryta reports.

- A confrontation between St. Bonaventure students and Southern Tier residents turned violent early Sunday, when a "Molotov cocktail" was thrown into an Allegany apartment, News Staff Reporter Charlie Specht reports.
