The man prosecutors say masterminded the burning of two large crosses at Bowie High School in June 1997 was sentenced yesterday to nearly three years in federal prison. Robert Trainer, who pleaded guilty to conspiring to violate civil rights laws, offered no apologies at his sentencing before U.S. District Judge Deborah K. Chasanow. Trainer, now 20, did say that he is a different person than the 17-year-old who prosecutors said plotted ways to take revenge against black students, and he said jail time would serve no purpose.

Thousands of Prince George's County high school students missed a third day of classes Wednesday as school officials said it could take more than a week to sort out the chaos caused by a new computerized class scheduling system. Students were put in gyms, auditoriums, cafeterias, libraries and classes they didn't want or need at high schools across the county as their parents' fury over the logistical nightmare rose.
