LAUREL -- Four new Maryland Racing Commission rules involving the bettor went into effect yesterday, including one that concerns the carry-over of the Double Triple pool on the final day of a meeting.That rule eliminates a special distribution of the pool money in the exotic wager, which requires a patron to pick the first three finishers in both the third and fifth races on any day's program. Instead, the pool money will be carried over to the beginning of the next meeting at either Laurel or Pimlico race courses.

Allison Barnabe is soooooo tired of people asking her what it's like to be a triplet. It's just like being any other kid, she says. Fortunately for her, some of the attention has been diffused lately, now that she and her sisters, Nicole and Corinne, attend school with another set of triplets: Kyle, Dylan and Bryan Ruygrok. The six youngsters, all 12 years old, are seventh-graders at Ellicott Mills Middle School. Last year, said Principal Michael Goins, a third set of triplets, two girls and a boy, also attended the Ellicott City school.

Gabriel Lasco, 27, a waiter at Maria's Pescado Frito at the Grand Central Market in Los Angeles, knows how to get around the surcharges to call his father in Mexico City.

On Mother's Days past, our son (assisted by his dad) liked to make breakfast for me. Following much clanging of pots and pans, I would be greeted by a smiling junior chef, proudly holding a tray loaded with breakfast. In those days, our child rarely ventured into the kitchen to cook. Mother's Day was the single exception. But now, a few decades later, he's a parent himself, and more than a little talented when it comes to cooking. In fact, he does most of the meal preparation for his young family, and loves celebrating special occasions with good food.

Walgreen discovered the error on Christmas Day and electronically reimbursed customers whose credit or debit cards had been incorrectly double- and triple-charged, company spokesman Michael Polzin said. Some credits may not post on customers' accounts until early next week, he said.

Prices for small, modest homes that a few years ago may have sold for as little as $30,000 or $40,000 have been selling for two and three times that amount as young professionals are eager to move to the hip waterfront neighborhood. Connie Breeden, a personal chef with her own business - Just a Matter of Thyme - knew Canton was the place to live three years ago when she decided to move from her home near Patterson Park.

Downtown Howard Street is slated for an overhaul in coming years that proponents say will infuse the west side with millions in public and private dollars and return residents and merchants to the city's former premier shopping area. But as far as the state is concerned, things are already looking up on Baltimore's west side, where some of the largest increases in property values were recorded in the latest round of reassess- ments downtown. Although that area represents just a fraction of the $1.8 billion in taxable property downtown, where values increased 20 percent overall, the west side had the largest cluster of assessments that doubled and tripled.

Wherever he plays, no matter how many points he scores, Mount Hebron's Eric Toback leaves a lasting impression. He's the Vikings player that opposing coaches double-team routinely and triple-team when they can. The 6-foot-6, 210-pound junior center's 29-point, eight-rebound effort Dec. 15 in the Vikings league-opening 69-64 victory over Long Reach e-mailed his capabilities far and wide. He sank four of five three-pointers and 11 of 12 free throws in that game, and displayed great hands and a deft shooting touch that led Lightning coach Al Moraz to call him `phenomenal.
