Barbara Boatman and her granddaughter Katherine Herbst celebrate their birthdays — Mrs. Boatman's 80th, Ms. Herbst's 21st — at the Maryland Live Casino on Thursday. It was the first day for 24-hour operations at the casino, which will add table games and poker in the spring to the existing slot machines. (Rod Lamkey Jr./The Washington Times)
