CUMBERLAND -- John A. Miller IV, described by prosecutors as a "highly motivated predator" who lured a Carroll County girl to her death, was convicted yesterday of murder and sexual assault, setting the stage for a death penalty hearing next week. Miller, 27, was found guilty of first-degree murder, a first-degree sexual offense, robbery and false imprisonment in the strangling of 17-year-old Shen D. Poehlman in Reisterstown in July 1998. The defense had conceded that Miller killed the girl but had fought the sexual-assault and robbery allegations, knowing that prosecutors needed those convictions to pursue the death penalty.

WASHINGTON -- In giving the commencement address at Boston College in 1982, then Vice President George Bush said it was an especially great day for him because he had a daughter in the graduating class.It was news to most of the students there.Just as it was news to the public affairs director of Maine's tourism office that the young woman who had started work there one morning in 1988 was the president's daughter. And news to the customers at Deering Ice Cream shop in Portland, Maine, that the woman coming in for lunch, dressed in a sweat suit and lugging one kid under one arm, another by her side, was anything more than just another mother, just another Mainer.

It shut down. Totally. Well, almost.In 1942, only four months after the start of the war, the course was closed for the duration.

We would have remembered him if it was just the songwriting or just the dancing or just the eyebrow-raising fashion. But Michael Jackson dominated each of those artistic avenues - and so many others. You see his influence in every Justin Timberlake who sweats to perfect a signature move. Every movie-esque flourish in a video. Every African-American artist who sits atop the pop charts. His legacy is as enduring as it is multi-faceted. 1. Sound When America first met Jackson, he was a lovable, pint-sized pre-teen with a puffy Afro and an electric voice.
