GAMBLING MALFUNCTIONS

ATLANTIC CITY — Roulette balls glance off the wheel onto the table. Slot machines jam. Dice go flying off the felt. And sometimes, the cards aren’t shuffled. FanDuel’s recent decision to pay an $82,000 payout its computers wrongly promised a bettor highlights a constant but little-publicized fact about the gambling industry: Things do go wrong, and when they do, it almost always voids the bet, despite FanDuel’s decision to pay.

EXCHANGE-ARTIST-UNDERGROUND RAILROAD MUSEUM

FOLSOM — E.B. Lewis had already earned world-class artist status and illustrated more than 50 children’s books when he came to the realization in the late 2000′s that he didn’t think of his work as important or valuable. Lewis’ feelings about his own work caused him to give up painting for more than two years, doing only illustrating work. Since Lewis, 61, returned to painting, he has tackled one significant job after the other, including illustrating a 2016 book about civil rights leader John Lewis, titled “Preaching to the Chickens, the Story of Young John Lewis.” One of the biggest projects of the Folsom artist’s life can be seen inside the Niagara Falls Underground Railroad Heritage Center in Upstate New York, which had its grand opening earlier this year.
