internet gambling at pennsylvania casinos, more slot machines, horse racing, betting parlors, and airports in pennsylvania, but even supporters know it's tough to get how much money the state will make off this. for example, in 2013 lawmakers estimated that legalized gambling in bars would bring in about $150 million a year for the state, but only a small fraction has materialized. about half a million dollars in the last fiscal year. still, gambling money has helped finance pennsylvania. taxes from table games, lottery tickets, and slot machines added up to $2 billion just in the last fiscal year. >> if you're a politician in delaware, it's just what you do on columbus day. nbc 10 in wilmington for the annual columbus day communion breakfast. delaware's congressional delegation with hundreds of guests to celebrate contributions italian americans made in delaware.

>> the dodgers confirmed he is not in tonight's starting lineup, but utley has appealed tonight's starting lineup, which means he can play. nbc 10's lauren mayk found that many phillies fans still support him. >> reporter: this is the kind of thing where if you've seen it, you probably have an opinion on it, and we found some here. to sports fans here, the slide wasn't just any slide, it involved a guy who was their guy for more than a decade. so when manager tom carroll saw it -- >> i thought to myself, take the man out of philly, but can't take philadelphia out of the man. >> reporter: you think that this slide embodied philadelphia? >> a little bit, yeah. it's got to be tough. >> reporter: the play in los angeles got utley a two-game suspension, but to jim -- >> it was a legal slide. if you watch the last two weeks of baseball, everyone did that slide. >> reporter: across the table, a cubs fan. >> i think it was aggressive, but i agree with what my friend here said. it happens in baseball all the
time. >> reporter: aggressive but not illegal. >> yeah, aggressive but not illegal. until they make a rules change, he was well within his rights to do what he did. >> reporter: should there be a rule change? >> yeah, yeah, guy had his leg broke. >> reporter: all the fuss over the slide reached michelle this morning. >> i was surprised. it was pretty violent crash. i thought it was pretty dirty play. >> reporter: do you think it was intentional? >> i want to say no, because i really like chase, but it seemed a little on the deliberate side, yeah. >> reporter: as for that punishment, she's not so sure. >> maybe one game. i think one game is probably appropriate. >> reporter: chase utley still has fans here, but they are not all letting him off the hook completely. in philadelphia, i'm lauren mayk, nbc 10 news. >> philly fans might remember these two players have a history. we found the video you're about to see from 2010. you can see utley crashing into the same guy, ruben tejada,
during a game at citizens bank park. this time there were no injuries after that play there. as we mentioned before, many are wondering if the mets will try to get revenge against utley tonight, and today's "new york daily news" seems to be fanning the flames. it reads "payback is a pitch." despite the appeal not being heard, utley's availability is anything but guaranteed. >> dodgers' manager don mattingly could choose to keep him out of the game tonight. nancy wrote, for instance, "he absolutely should have been suspended for at least the two games he got, maybe more. terrible play, chase." sydney says, "he totally meant it. did he try to break a leg? no, but geez, utley took him out like a sucker punch. dirt bag play." >> kandi saw it a different way. she said "he shouldn't be suspended, it was a slide, he wouldn't intentionally try to
hurt someone. he's always been a great guy." and kelly had this to say, "the only reason he was suspended is because the guy's leg broke, otherwise it wouldn't have been looked at." you can join in the discussion, too, by posting comments on our nbc 10 facebook page. also tonight, other sports news, a local college football player arrested. who police say he attacked and the serious charges he's now facing. plus, police didn't have a hard time finding one drunk driver. >> i'm driving home drunk. >> that's because she admitted to the crime live on the internet. what she said after her arrest coming up on nbc 10 news at 5:00.

which is pretty much near its peak, so great place to go locally to see a lot of fall foliage. tomorrow, though, different conditions than today, we had the clear skies out there in the poconos and everywhere, but tomorrow showers and clouds moving in. another cooldown after the rain leaves, so that will mostly be wednesday, you'll notice the cool down, then over the weekend an even bigger cool down. you can call it colder over the weekend, especially when you see sunday morning's temperature. live look at center city, sunny skies, 74 degrees, low humidity, very comfortable. and through the lehigh valley we're still in the mid 70s, mid 70s for allentown. 71 westchester, 73 glassboro. some areas in the upper 60s like atlantic city, dover coming in at 69 degrees. your evening will be comfortable, clear skies, radar nice and dry, but tomorrow we'll see more clouds around and even some scattered showers. it's all back to our west near chicago, moving into parts of ohio and part of a cold front, so once we see the clouds and
rain leave the area, that's when that cool air starts to move in. here's future weather through the overnight hours. tonight will still be cool, dropping into the 50s and then tomorrow morning 9:00 you'll notice more clouds moving in. i think most of the morning commute should be on the dry side, couldn't rule out a few showers by the later part of the commute, but then through the middle of the day we could still be mostly dry, temperatures in the 70s, mild day, and most models have been consistent with showing another line of showers moving in around the evening commute. should be a pretty quick mover here leaving the area by about 8:00, 9:00, then we start to cool down into wednesday. clouds will be with us through part of the day wednesday, temperatures though only in about the mid to upper 60s and that's going to stay that way through the rest of the week. once that cold front moves through, look at this cool air mass moving in. that's wednesday. milder air gets pushed down south, then thursday, friday, cool air sits with us over the weekend, though, big cold air mass from the north, that starts
to move in and this is what will be really dropping those weekend temperatures. so the rest of this week will be cool, aside from tomorrow, and then an even bigger drop for your saturday and sunday. tonight, though, low temperatures will be in the 50s, more clouds around, 50 degrees for the lehigh valley. 57 philadelphia, new jersey and delaware about the mid to upper 50s. tomorrow mostly cloudy, scattered showers around, we'll see some spotty showers around through the afternoon, i think, through most of the area. temperatures anywhere from 73 to 76 degrees. still fairly mild until we see that drop into wednesday, 67 degrees, cooler and breezy for your wednesday, then thursday and friday still in the mid 60s, average high is 68 degrees. today and tomorrow both we're going to be well above normal, then we drop down to below normal as we end out the week. going into the weekend, we have another drop in temperatures saturday, colder and breezy, high temperature around 60 degrees. some areas may not even get out of the 50s for daytime highs.
then come sunday morning, 39 degrees. that's through the philadelphia area, i think the lehigh valley could be closer to freezing, then by sunday afternoon some areas still not even getting out of the 50s and we start the following week on the chilly side. we have new developments in the case of a man accused of killing his toddler by leaving him in a hot car. detectives now say the man intentionally left the child there and wanted freedom from his family. justin harris is accused of intentionally leaving his 22-month-old son in an suv in june 2014. harris is facing multiple charges, including murder. his attorneys argue the death was a tragic accident. the judge says his trial could start as early as february 2016. the washington post says it will keep fighting in court for its reporter convicted of espionage in iran. iran's state media says jason rezaian has been convicted but didn't say anything about his sentence. the newspaper says it's already working with the family to file an appeal and try to get him

that's one area you can head to see the beautiful colors before the leaves start to fall off. we know it doesn't last long. tonight clouds increasing, temperatures around 50 degrees for the lehigh valley. 57 for the philadelphia area, about the mid 50s for new jersey and delaware, but we stay dry tonight. tomorrow mostly cloudy with scattered showers around, 73 to 76 degrees. still fairly mild, enjoy it, because we do start to cool down as we go into wednesday. around 67 degrees, mid 60s thursday and friday. another cold front moving through friday. take a look what it does to the weekend temperatures. saturday, some areas may not even get out of the 50s. saturday night into sunday morning you see the 39 going into sunday morning, some areas north and west of philadelphia like the lehigh valley could be closer to freezing. so it's going to be a cold start sunday and by sunday afternoon expect to be in the upper 50s. a return to broad street as the flyers play their first home game tonight. >> tough start losing two games in florida and now the team has
