While Marylanders are consumed with the debate over whether to allow a sixth casino and table games like poker and blackjack, the state is quietly moving ahead with an idea that could make gambling much more pervasive: Internet lottery sales. And in contrast to the state's casino program, which has been playing catch-up with neighboring states for years, the State Lottery Agency is contemplating plans that would instantly catapult Maryland to the cutting edge of this new frontier of gambling - all without the General Assembly ever taking a direct vote on the issue.

An Annapolis lobbyist responsible for collecting sponsorship ticket money for the Legislative Follies defended his role in the event yesterday. Laurence Levitan, a former state legislator, said that he did not sell tickets to the March 28 event. He also said he complied with state law that prohibits lobbyists from engaging "in any charitable fundraising activity at the request of an official or employee." "No elected official has asked me to raise funds, nor have I raised any for this worthwhile charity, therefore it is clearly permissible under the law," Levitan said.

It sounds hard to believe, but a school could end up losing money by being in the Final Four. And that's because of the good, ol' NCAA. According to a report in The Dallas Morning News, the NCAA slaps schools in the Final Four with required costs, such as spending $32,000 on a party and buying 470 hotel rooms at a four-night minimum - sometimes at a hotel far from the arena - while it also has cut the number of tickets allotted to each team. This year, each got 3,750, down from 4,500 six years ago. (The schools can then resell the rooms and tickets.

100 Years Ago* Mr. Chauncey E. Jerome, of this city, was charged before Justice Crapster, on Monday, with selling tickets of the Louisiana Lottery in violation of law, but proved his innocence conclusively. The facts were that someone in Kansas sent Mr. Jerome a package by express, which he at first declined to receive, having had no knowledge of the sender. The express company's agent thereupon communicated with the latter, who replied that the package was properly directed and was intended for Mr. Jerome.

In a move designed to limit ticket-scalping at Camden Yards, the Orioles say they'll soon announce a program allowing fans to sell back their unwanted tickets or trade them for tickets to future games.Details of the plan still are being worked out, but team owner Peter G. Angelos said he hoped fans would take advantage of the program rather than selling their extra tickets to scalpers or brokers."I want tickets that season-ticket holders are not able to use to be returned to the club so we get them in the hands of fans, not those who'll charge more than face value," Angelos said yesterday.

With the second Baltimore Grand Prix less than five months away, organizers of the race have yet to sign key agreements, land sponsorship deals, launch a marketing campaign or start selling tickets. Downforce Racing LLC has not fulfilled three of five benchmarks that its contract with the city required to be done three weeks ago. The contract, drawn up following the financial debacle of last year's race, was designed to prevent the new racing group from falling into the same problems as the previous organizers.

Would you take a $100 chance on winning a $1.6 million house? Organizers of an estate home raffle in Baltimore County are betting as many as 35,000 people will step up to buy a ticket, compelled by the unusually big prize - a 5-bedroom mini-mansion on an estate lot in Phoenix - and the chance to help out a local charity. House raffles such as this one have been used as fundraisers by a handful of nonprofits for years, and they are a growing phenomenon as home sellers caught in a recession look for creative ways to stand out and nonprofits seek alternative funding.

COLLEGE PARK -- Last season, luxury seating at the University of Maryland's aging football stadium was a work in progress. Fans could look past the scaffolding and see the modernized version of Tyser Tower - a concrete, brick and glass structure that will house 64 suites - beginning to take shape on Byrd Stadium's south side. Five weeks from the home football opener, the suites and mezzanine seating are nearing completion inside and below the five-story tower, giving the 59-year-old stadium a more contemporary look.

I listened last week to Ravens players telling area fans not to sell their tickets to Steelers fans, and that if they did it was a lack of respect, and that those who did weren't true fans. Sometimes, players live in their own little worlds. Outside the locker room, and in the real world where we live, a lot of people are getting laid off or taking pay cuts. A lot of companies are filing for bankruptcy. So if a fan sold his tickets and made a few bucks for Christmas this year or made some extra money to pay a few bills, good for him or her.

I'm as big a proponent of hometown loyalty as the next chap, but I can't muster any outrage at Ravens ticket holders who are flipping their ducats to Steelers fans for tidy profits. Look, the economy is bad, worse than it has ever been in my lifetime. And the holidays, with all their gifting obligations, are upon us. So if mom and dad are strapped enough that mortgage payments are tough, and they want to sell their tickets so junior can have his Wii, who am I to wag my finger? I might be exaggerating by planting images of Tiny Tim, heartsick over a lack of Guitar Hero, in a discussion about football loyalties.

What could be more disturbing than to see M&T Bank Stadium, a place that should be a purple purgatory for visiting football teams, speckled with fluttering yellow Terrible Towels? Did I say disturbing? I meant disgusting. And yet, we have seen it far too often. Pittsburgh Steelers fans, rabid as any in the NFL, troll the Internet snapping up loose tickets to away games, and road trips to Baltimore are especially targeted. When those tickets come from brokers who own the season tickets, it might be understandable that a few stray Ravens ducats wind up in Steelers hands.

You recently took my daughter to the airport for an 8:50 a.m. flight. Although you did a good job of getting her there - she was an hour early - she missed the flight. Her ticket said US Airways (which is in Terminal 1 at Los Angeles International Airport), but she actually was on a United flight (which is in Terminal 7). It was a code share. How were we supposed to know? Why didn't you know this? What kind of aunt-sister are you? Judith Ramsey, Arnold, Md. Wait a minute. You think just because you're my older sister you can yell at me and boss me around?
