AP Writer RICHMOND, Va. (AP) ? Friends knew Richard Marc Evonitz as a nice guy ? a married Navy man who was active in his community. Lurking beneath that exterior, authorities say, was a ??sexually sadistic psychopath" who abducted and murdered a string of young girls. Evonitz, 38, fatally shot himself in June after police tracked him to Sarasota, Fla. He had been sought in the abduction and rape of a 15-year-old girl in Lexington, S.C. On Tuesday, police announced what investigators had suspected since soon after Evonitz's suicide: that he had murdered three Virginia girls in 1996 and 1997.

Chrysanthemums, gladiolas and orange jasmine from Mexico are prohibited through the passenger ports of entry, according to a press release from Customs and Border Protection. So travelers cannot bring arrangements with those flowers into the country through a passenger port of entry, like the Calexico border crossing.

Ella explica los puntos a favor y en contra: Entre las ventajas están: - Usted podrá aprovechar las ofertas de la tienda e ir pagando poco a poco su mercancía.  - Podrá pagar por la mercancía que puso en apartado en determinado plazo, y no tiene que hacer la compra con cargo a su tarjeta de crédito; así se evita el pago de intereses.

My children have several foot-powered (i.e. Razor) scooters and they wear their helmets. I have seen several other children in the neighborhood riding without helmets. Some other parents and I were wondering if there is a helmet law for such scooters, as well as for skateboards. They are concerned that they will be fined if there is a helmet law and it is enforced. — Concerned Parent Besides being a very bad idea, it is apparently illegal for kids to be zipping around on their scooters with no helmet.

Call it the revenge of Milli Vanilli. You remember them, right? The pop music duo that came out of nowhere to score one of 1989's biggest hits, an album called "Girl, You Know It's True"? But "true" is one thing Rob Pilatus and Fabrice Morvan never were. One year, 7 million albums and a Grammy Award later, we learned that they had sung not a note. Milli Vanilli was a fraud. I was a music critic then, and I made Pilatus and Morvan (along with New Kids on the Block and a few others)

Through the 1980s, MTV defined a generation. Through the 1990s, it chartered new ground. And now, 25 years later, MTV is having the kind of effect on a generation that it did when it first aired ? kind of. Launched in 1981, Music Television recently turned 25 years old, but did so not so much with a bang, but rather with an attentionless thud. ?MTV didn?t even celebrate its 25th anniversary,? said Robert J. Thompson, popular culture professor and director of Syracuse University?

Since Valentine’s Day is just a few days away, I would like to share a redneck Valentine love poem sent from the South Carolina part of the family: “Collards is green, my dog’s name is Blue, and I’m so lucky to have a sweet thang like you. Yore hair is like corn silk a-flapping in the breeze, softer than Blue’s and without all them fleas. You move like the bass, which excite me in May. You ain’t got no scales, but I luv you anyway.
