A studious young man with an aptitude for computers, Majid Shoukat Khan was working as a database administrator in a high-rise office building in Tysons Corner, Va., on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001.

An 18-year-old Baltimore man was sentenced to 15 years yesterday for his role in the fatal shooting of a former Owings Mills wrestling standout at Owings Mills Mall. Avion Richard Rodriguez of the 8000 block of Woodgate Court was sentenced after he entered an Alford plea of guilt to first-degree felony murder and a handgun violation in the killing of Kevin Garmzaban on Dec. 18. The plea means that Rodriguez does not admit guilt, but acknowledges that the state has sufficient evidence to convict him. Baltimore County Circuit Judge J. Norris Byrnes sentenced Rodriguez to life with all but 15 years suspended after prosecutors recommended the sentence as part of a plea agreement.

NOBODY WANTS to put the knock on Margaret I. Spicer, the principal of Owings Mills High School. She's only trying to protect people's feelings in a sensitive time. But she's taken a piece of literature and reduced it to a curse.The literature is "To Kill a Mockingbird," the heart-wrenching 1960 Harper Lee novel about a white Southern lawyer who defends a black man wrongly accused of raping a white girl.So powerful is the message of racial bigotry, and the courage to overcome it, that the book became a marvelous movie, and the movie was translated to theater.

Tony Smith was an average ninth-grade student with an interest in basketball when one of his teachers at Owings Mills High suggested he sign up for a program that would help him get into college. Now a junior, Smith has taken the SATs twice, compiled a list of colleges to apply to and set a career goal of becoming an accountant. Without being taught study skills and pushed to take more advanced-level classes, Smith and a number of students at Owings Mills High in Baltimore County said they would be right where many of their friends are: with no idea where to apply to college or what academic skills they need to survive there.

When it comes to attacks, terrorism experts say, al-Qaida has historically sought something more spectacular than setting gas stations ablaze -- a plan ascribed to a former Baltimore County man who was locked up in a secret CIA prison. Even an attack on a mall would probably kill more people and have more of an effect on the economy, said Robert Liscouski, a former senior official at the Department of Homeland Security. But, he added, blowing up gas stations could underscore "a vulnerability of everyday life," not unlike the Washington-area sniper attacks.

Sawdust speckles hallway floors, and classroom televisions have yet to be installed. A power saw whirs in the distance, as workers cart away cardboard boxes that carried the computers filling up laboratories at New Town High School in Owings Mills. Less than two weeks before its opening, Baltimore County's first new high school in 25 years remains a work in progress - though one that is nearly finished. Outside, workers are sweeping the dirt off just-completed sidewalks; inside, teachers are decorating their classrooms.
