The Nobel Peace Prize concert is not the first place you'd think of for a show by Robyn, Swedish pop goddess. Especially not last year's. It was a serious event with serious artists to honor a serious man, incarcerated Chinese dissident Liu Xiaobo. Elvis Costello was there, Denzel Washington presented, and Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel of Sweden were in attendance. Most performers would be fazed by that kind of crowd, but not Robyn, who performs Tuesday at Rams Head Live . She tore through three songs of her widely popular "Body Talk" trilogy without breaking a sweat, and three days later she was headlining a string of her own shows in Stockholm.

She was smiling now, chatting freely about her big day. Her hair was pulled back. With the pinkish hue on her cheeks and a soft coating of sweat, it was obvious she had been exerting herself physically. Still, she was hardly out of breath.Robyn Mincher, a 5-foot-9 senior at Annapolis, wasn't finished yet. In her Annapolis track T-shirt and lacrosse sweatpants, she laughed, talked about how track isn't even her best sport, then surrendered to her teammates, who were yelling from across the gym at the 5th Regiment Armory for her to come to the final relay event.

Long after the curtain fell on his career, his audience remains as devoted as any fervent constituents.And when people think you're messing with their legends, watch out. Indeed, Astaire's widow, Robyn, has found herself vilified over the way she has handled her guardianship of his image.

Robyn, the 16-year-old Howard County student who took her own life this month, left pages and pages of it, 150 poems and at least two novels, but still too few to satisfy those who loved her. With an IBM laptop that was a 16th birthday gift from her parents, she recorded her thoughts, hopes and observations about a world that she loved, but one that did not always welcome...

Robyn Michaels is in a tough spot. She's looking for work, spends more than she takes in and is coming up on retirement. But, experts said, the situation is not hopeless. When her dog-grooming business slowed last spring after eight successful years, Michaels first tried to downsize her 1,700- square-foot shop, Northshore Clippers, into smaller quarters. But when she couldn't find a smaller rental space that would allow pet traffic, she started to rethink her entire financial picture.
