When Maryland racing had its renaissance in the late 1980s, the barn areas at the three major tracks were crowded, and full fields made for interesting racing. In turn, fans bet with enthusiasm. Handle soared, and purses increased.But a recent malaise in racing throughout the nation has not bypassed the Maryland circuit. Short fields are the rule. Handle is down 9 percent at the 58-day-old Pimlico meet. And barns at Laurel and Pimlico race courses and the Bowie training center BTC are at about 85 percent capacity, said Tim Capps, the tracks'vice president for racing and publicity.

People don't like thinking about dying or being incapacitated. But at some point it may become necessary, and that means deciding who will handle their affairs when they no longer can. Choosing fiduciaries - those who can make financial, medical and other decisions on your behalf - is not always easy. And often the same person can't fill all roles. For instance, the best person to advise doctors on your care may not be the one you want managing your portfolio. And the candidate who can efficiently carry out the wishes of your will may not be first choice to rear your children.
