Born on Dec. 12, 2000, Hagerstown resident Kayla Bailey turns 12 wednesday, on 12/12/12. “It's kind of cool that they're all put together like that,” Bailey, a student at E. Russell Hicks Middle School said Tuesday. “My mom's taking me out to dinner for it.” Although this is the first time the day, month and year aligned for Bailey's birthday, she noted that her special day always does coincide with her new age.

A yacht for each day of the week. A garage filled with Bentleys, Lamborghinis and Ferraris. A veritable Xanadu to be built on the tropical island of your choice. All these and more treasures can be within the reach of someone lucky enough to win this Saturday's Powerball, which on Friday stood at $315 million. If there were a single winner, that amount could put the ticket-holder between the gross national products of Tonga and the Federated States of Micronesia. Taking the cash payoff of $193.4 million would still place a single winner ahead of the Cook Islands and seven other countries.
