Quick Breads By Linda Collister 100 Magnificent Muffins & Scones By Felicity Barnum-Bobb Collins / 2007 / $13.95 The chocolate-sauce covered "muffin" topped with a candy bar on the cover of this pretty book is telling: A good number of the muffins inside strongly resemble their popular cousin, the cupcake. Pink Fairy Muffins and Marbled Soccer Muffins are dressed up for birthday parties. White Chocolate Rose Wedding Muffins would make a stunning and different presentation for a nuptial celebration, though with dessert wine among the ingredients and more than 1,000 calories for the "mega" size, I wouldn't eat them for breakfast.

SAN FRANCISCO - A judge yesterday ruled that Barry Bonds' record-setting 73rd home run ball belongs to both fans who battled for the hunk of sports history in the stands of a delirious Pacific Bell Park last year. And neither is happy about it. Superior Court Judge Kevin McCarthy ordered that the scuffed-up ball, with an estimated value of $1 million, be put up for auction and the profits split between Berkeley, Calif., restaurant owner Alex Popov, who first touched the ball as it flew into the right-field seats, and Sacramento marketer Patrick Hayashi, who recovered it after a fierce rumble.

ATLANTA -- Gary Hall Jr. tried to play it down, but he wanted badly to unseat Russian world-record holder Aleksandr Popov in last night's Olympic 100-meter freestyle at the Georgia Tech Aquatic Center.Popov, after all, has been known to pop off."When I am at the top of my game, nobody can beat me," Popov said at the 1994 World Championships in Rome, "and when I am not at the top of my game, nobody can beat me."Hall wanted to prove him wrong last night, but he came up just inches short in a finish that left him again standing on the second-place platform, though it was a little easier with a silver medal around his neck.

MOSCOW -- Mikhail S. Gorbachev, who once rode only in heavily guarded limousines, finally has rejoined the ranks of the common man.His car was stolen.Car theft is becoming all too common. Every day 40 cars are stolen in this former police state where crime was as once as rare as profit.Most residents of U.S. cities would consider this figure negligible. But such crime has traumatized people who may wait years just for the privilege of being able to buy a car. Gavriil Popov, the former mayor of Moscow, proposed last year that anyone found even touching someone else's car get a seven-year jail term.

Trifles offers full-service dining with a choice of three appetizers and entrees, coffee and dessert.

BARCELONA, Spain - The world championships finally provided a head-to-head meeting between the two best swimmers in the world. Ian Thorpe arrived as the reigning king in the sport, but he is being deposed by a Baltimorean who a few years back was known not as "The Phenom," but as "Little Phelps." Last night, they matched up for the first time, at the Palau Sant Jordi in front of 11,150, in a semifinal that was anything but routine. For the second time in three nights, Michael Phelps, 18, bettered one of his world records in the penultimate round, lowering the standard in the 200-meter individual medley to 1 minute, 57.52 seconds.

St. Louis coach Don Popovic said late last night he has a hard choice to make -- but is delighted."All my coaching career I have been blessed with goalkeepers," he said. "I've never had to think much about them. First it was Shep Messing and then it was Zoltan Toth."Now I have to decide on a new one and I am blessed again in that I must choose between two of the best -- Scott Manning and Jim Gorsek."Manning, 34, of course, played the last 10 years with the Blast and is recognized as one of the premier keepers in the league.
