LAS VEGAS - The stigma of living here is starting to wear off. Built on gambling joints and long personified by the mobsters who ran them, this neon oasis in the desert is now gaining legitimacy as a residential destination of choice. And as the fastest-growing metropolitan area in the United States, it's taking on the trappings of upscale America. Who might have imagined: A master-planned community here is selling homes at a faster clip than any other in the country. To be sure, the development is safely tucked away at the feet of the Spring Mountains, 12 miles west of the Las Vegas Strip's casinos, wedding chapels and topless bars.

Owings Mills graduated eight starters from last year's 12-6 baseball team. And after losing two of the first three games this season, coach Howe Rudow wasn't quite sure what to expect. But what the third-year coach received was "a big surprise." The Eagles have won 11 consecutive games, clinching the Baltimore County 2A-1A crown heading into today's non-league game against Dulaney. "The formula is simple: We have no superstars, just playmakers," said Rudow, whose team starts four seniors.

Consecutive pins by Ben Himowitz and Jason Summerlin at 160 and 171 pounds, respectively, led No. 11-ranked Owings Mills to a come-from-behind, 31-29 upset of No. 8 Atholton in a tri-meet yesterday at unranked Westminster.Himowitz, who is unbeaten in two varsity bouts, gave Owings Mills its first lead, 25-19, with a fall in 3 minutes, 3 seconds, before Summerlin headlocked previously unbeaten Mark Carbone (5-1) for the pin at 1: 42 in a bout that had figured to be a toss-up.Atholton needed pins in its final two bouts to salvage a tie, but Richard Markowitz yielded no near-fall points in an 8-0 loss to Atholton's Brian Mullinix (189)

As a real estate company, the Rouse Co. has been all over the map - literally buying and building all kinds of real estate properties around the country. But the company known for its shopping centers and the communities of Columbia and Summerlin, outside Las Vegas, has been concentrating in recent years on being a mall owner. Last month, the company announced that it sold ExecuCentre, a collection of furnished, ready-to-use offices that can be rented from an hour to a year. That caps off sales of strip shopping centers, offices and side businesses, in addition to land sold for commercial and residential development in Columbia and Las Vegas.

The Rouse Co. reported yesterday that all three of its core businesses performed well in the third quarter, boosting funds from operations 9 percent from the corresponding quarter of 1999. FFO, a key measure of real estate investment trusts, was $60.7 million, or 79 cents a share, in the quarter ending Sept. 30. That beat the analysts' consensus estimate by a penny. Third-quarter 1999 FFO was $55.7 million, or 71 cents a share. For the first nine months, Rouse's FFO was $188.2 million, or $2.45 a share, compared with $166.

FREDERICK -- Owings Mills coach Guy Pritzker was not surprised when Kent County jumped out to a quick 28-point lead after only five matches yesterday.Pritzker had said before the match that he expected his team would be in the hole after the lighter weights. He also hoped that, with eight matches remaining, the No. 10-ranked Eagles could mount a comeback.But Kent County never wavered. The Trojans split those final eight matches to blunt an Owings Mills comeback and rolled to a 43-18 victory in the Class 1A-2A state dual meet semifinal at Frederick.
