They say time flies when you're having fun. And even when you're not, time does have a way of moving way too fast. That reality is driven home to us every year when we are deluged by hype surrounding the 25th anniversary of this or the 10th anniversary of that. So to give you a heads-up on what we'll be facing this year, here's a clip-and-save guide of all the notable pop culture anniversaries we'll be "celebrating" in 2005. 50 Years (1955) July 9 - "Rock Around the Clock": Bill Haley and His Comets' hit (used as the theme for the film Blackboard Jungle)

HARRISBURG - Franklin C. Brown, a former Rite Aid Corp. chief counsel convicted of accounting fraud, was sentenced to 10 years in prison yesterday by a judge who rejected his arguments that the term would be a death sentence because he is 76 and ill. Brown was convicted last October of conspiring to inflate earnings at Rite Aid, the No. 3 U.S. drugstore chain, witness tampering and obstructing justice. Before the trial, he signed a plea agreement that would have brought him a much lighter sentence, but changed his mind and gambled on an acquittal at trial.

KABUL, Afghanistan -- The men at the Cinema Park theater easily name their favorite Hollywood stars -- Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jean-Claude Van Damme and Rambo. They prefer action movies, both from India and the United States, and even say they like one called Mission of Justice, starring "Rambo's wife." But the men also have a major soft spot for the theater's next film: Titanic, to be shown on the big screen in Kabul for only the second time since the fall of the Taliban. "I can't tell you how I got it," says Abdul Bashir Jamili, who buys most Cinema Park movies from India and Pakistan.

HARRISBURG, Pa. - A Rite Aid Corp. vice president should be tried on obstruction of justice charges separately from three former executives accused of accounting fraud at the No. 3 drugstore chain, a judge ruled yesterday. Eric Sorkin's case would be prejudiced by trying him with Rite Aid's former Chief Executive Officer Martin Grass, former Chief Counsel Franklin Brown and former Chief Financial Officer Frank Bergonzi, U.S. District Judge Sylvia Rambo ruled. Sorkin is accused of lying to a grand jury and conspiring with Brown and Grass to obstruct investigations into an alleged accounting fraud that led Rite Aid to restate $1.6 billion in profits.

Ordinarily, when a team wins a state title, the players and coaches are overcome with joy and there is ecstatic celebration scene on the field. That was not the case in yesterday afternoon's 2A girls soccer final at UMBC as No. 9 Hereford and Middletown, of Frederick County, were named co-champions after playing to a 1-1 draw. In Maryland, the finalists share the title if the state championship game is even following 80 minutes of regulation and 20 minutes of sudden-death overtime. "It just is not what we hoped for," said Hereford coach Steve Power, whose team won its first state title.
