More than 55 years ago, Isabel Jackson left her native El Paso, Texas, bound for a new life in Baltimore. Sometimes she would look at the pictures she brought with her, including one of her walking hand-in-hand with her daughter, but mostly, she didn't talk about the past. This weekend, the girl in the photo, who is now 63, will arrive in Baltimore herself. She will meet the man her mother had married, see the East Baltimore house in which they lived and visit the graveyard in which her mother is buried.

All right, "Sinatra," the CBS miniseries about Frank Sinatra, was awful. But even at its worst, it never had anything that could compare with scenes featuring Michael Jackson as a small child talking to a rat in "The Jacksons: An American Dream," an ABC miniseries about the Jackson family that begins Sunday."

Washington--Another unauthorized biography. Another no-holds-barred, warts-and-all portrait of a glitzy, high-profile, enigmatic figure. Another hefty tome of sex, lies and, in this case, videotapings. More luscious scandal. More good dirt.But Michael Jackson biographer J. Randy Taraborrelli, a white kid from Philly who used to dream of being one of the Temptations, wants to make one thing clear:He's no Kitty Kelley.On a tour to promote "Michael Jackson, The Magic and the Madness," Mr. Taraborrelli has heard it over and over again: "People like you and Kitty Kelley . . ."

Family reunions are often strange affairs. But the public reunion of the performing Jackson clan on Saturday night was, even by Las Vegas standards, one of the strangest spectacles in theatrical history.Part soap opera, part tragedy and part weird comedy, the Jackson family epic took another turn in a reunion (minus one outcast daughter) before 15,000 people at an arena in the huge MGM Grand Hotel. The show is to be televised on NBC tonight. But most of the real-life drama actually took place offstage.

rTC 7 Gov. William Donald Schaefer appointed a commission today to increase private funding for the arts to fill a void that will be left by a cutback in state aid. "Given the shape of the state's economy, we need to be looking for funding alternatives that will ensure Maryland is a leader in the arts," the governor said. Schaefer has not given any details of his budget plans for the rest of this year or next year. But with the state looking at a combined deficit of more than $1 billion for the next two years, arts funding is expected to take a big hit. The 55-member Governor's Commission on the Future of the Arts in Maryland includes top executives from a blue chip list of Maryland corporations.

A company controlled by the family of former strip-club manager Kenneth A. Jackson has bought a three-story building on Baltimore's Antique Row for a restaurant that is to feature international cuisine and guest stints by celebrity chefs. The El Dorado Lounge, which has closed, won't be moving from West Baltimore Street to the Howard Street location, said attorney Lisa Harris Jones, who represents the Jackson family and its business, KAJ Inc. The liquor license for 889 N. Howard St. requires that 40 percent of the establishment's sales be from food, and zoning of the site bans adult entertainment businesses there.

ATLANTA - Attorney General Janet Reno and other top Justice Department officials assured the Rev. Jesse Jackson at a 90-minute meeting in Washington yesterday that the department was actively investigating the hanging of a black youth in his front yard in Kokomo, Miss., a month ago. An autopsy concluded that the death of the youth, Raynard Johnson, 17, was suicide. But his family and Jackson say they are convinced he was lynched because of his relationships with white girls. State, local and federal officials, under persistent pressure from Jackson, have been investigating the June 16 death despite the preliminary finding of suicide by a state medical examiner.
