A 65-year-old Linthicum man spread out a blanket and pillow in the back of his van and drove to a Baltimore County restaurant to meet what he thought was a nine-year-old girl, planning to perform sex acts with her, according to court filings. But the supposed child was in fact an undercover detective who had exchanged over 200 text messages with David Mitchell Rowe, posing as a girl he had previously molested at a hotel pool. He was arrested and charged with soliciting a minor to engage in sexual activity.

A 26-year-old Johns Hopkins University graduate was sentenced yesterday to six months in jail, to be served on consecutive weekends, for his role in a botched off-campus drug deal in which the boyfriend of a Hopkins student was shot to death. Baltimore Circuit Judge Paul A. Smith imposed the sentence on Atsushi Yasuno despite the tearful plea of his younger sister and an argument by his attorney that Yasuno should serve no jail time because he had kicked the heroin addiction he developed while attending Hopkins, and that he had turned his life around since the March 1997 incident.

3 THINGS TO WATCH No lack of offense Cornell averages 14.14 goals per game, tops in Division I, and has five players with at least 30 points, led by Eric Pittard (32 goals, 29 assists) and David Mitchell (43, nine). Duke ranks third in scoring (12.8 goals), primarily because no one has the ability to dodge, shoot and pass like Matt Danowski (42 goals, 49 assists) and no one finishes as well as Zack Greer (63 goals). Meanwhile, in goal ... As high-powered as both offenses are, the senior goalies could have the final say. Cornell's Matt McMonagle and Duke's Dan Loftus combined for 28 saves in Cornell's 7-6 victory in March in Durham, N.C., and they each have been ranked among the top three in save percentage for much of the season.

Cloud Atlas: A Novel, by David Mitchell. Random House. 510 pages. $14.95. British novelist David Mitchell's Cloud Atlas is a highly imaginative, inventively structured and sometimes exasperating work that will challenge any serious reader of fiction. It is a book with large themes -- civilization, conflict, power and redemption -- presented as six novellas, each set in a different time and each written in a different style. The six sections cover periods from the 1850s to hundreds of years from now. All except one are written in the first person, and all the episodes are connected because the narrators always discover the works, diaries or testimonies of their predecessors.

Black Swan Green David Mitchell Random House / 304 pages / $24.95 English novels named for places tend to emphasize not the particularity but the typicality of those places: See, for instance, George Eliot's Middlemarch and Elizabeth Gaskell's Cranford. David Mitchell's glorious fourth novel, Black Swan Green, observes this tradition and does it justice. The West Midlands village has an exotic-sounding name, like words torn from an imagist poem, but the place itself is anything but. It's small, dull, lacking swans of any color, and a brutal setting in which to lead the life of a sensitive, stammering schoolboy.

President Clinton, his wife, Hillary, and daughter, Chelsea, along with numerous other dignitaries owe one Harford County businessman a debt of gratitude.Every time a member of the first family or its guests left the reviewing stand during the inaugural parade to heed a call of nature, David Mitchell was flushed with pride. For it was he who provided a clean way station just a few brisk steps from the marching bands along Pennsylvania Avenue.According to Mr. Mitchell, his company, Mitch Pro Cleaning Services Inc. of Forest Hill, was sent to Washington last Tuesday to prepare and service the "Crowd Pleaser" -- a 10-toilet portable bathroom to be used by the president and vice president, their families, friends and other dignitaries assigned to seats on the reviewing stand.

Two years ago, they formed the most potent two-headed monster in Division I men's lacrosse, and Duke attackmen Zack Greer and Matt Danowski are not letting up. After Saturday's 11-9 victory at Johns Hopkins - in which Greer leveled the Blue Jays with six goals and Danowski teamed with Greer on all four of his assists - Greer and Danowski reasserted themselves as the game's premier one-two punch. Greer (50 points) and Danowski (49) are just behind Virginia junior attackman Ben Rubeor, the nation's leader with 54 points.

IT'S a Shakespearean moment when Judge David B. Mitchell takes the bench. His black robe blends with the dark leather of his elevated chair, making it seem as if he is sitting on a custom-made throne. Clerks and lawyers hover in front of the bench as he considers requests for trial delays. At times, the light above the bench hits the metal rim of his glasses, sending a flash into the courtroom. When he scolds errant lawyers, it looks like lightning. "You don't get it, do you?" Mitchell boomed recently at a prosecutor who had failed to disclose evidence in a high-profile multiple-victim murder case.
