Expect these stories to grab headlines on Newsday.com Wednesday. Check back for updates.
1) Will Julio Acevedo, the driver suspected of racing down a Brooklyn street at more than 60 mph and crashing into a livery cab, killing an expectant Orthodox Jewish mother and her husband, turn himself in to police? On Tuesday, he was conferring with a lawyer and said he planned to surrender to police, according to published reports.
2) And what of the Dow, after it closed at a record high Tuesday? But until the market closes Wednesday, you can continue to live (at least in your head) the lush life. A few suggestions on how to spend the dough if you've still got it by day's end.
3) Snow. Or rain. Or rain and snow, depending where you live. The latest nor'easter is expected to roll in overnight Tuesday and stay for awhile.
4) No groundbreaking date is certain yet on the Tappan Zee Bridge project. But jobs -- thousands of them -- come with the new bridge. The first "New NY Bridge Employment Information Forum" will be at 10 a.m. Wednesday morning. Expect details to be rolled out at that meeting and at a second forum Thursday.
5) Knicks star and leading scorer Carmelo Anthony could miss Wednesday night's game in Detroit because of a stiff and sore right knee that has bothered him for a few weeks. Anthony is listed as questionable for the game after he left the second quarter of Monday night's game in Cleveland. Anthony is currently the NBA's second-leading scorer and has been the only consistent offensive threat for the Knicks all season.
