Jonathan Knight doesn't blame government cutbacks for forcing him to stand near a freeway ramp holding a "Please Take a Resume" sign. The young man aiming for a career as a legislative analyst realizes it's the tight economy that is making it difficult for recent college graduates to launch their careers. So Knight, who once interned with a U.S. senator in Washington, D.C., puts on a shirt and tie, grabs a sign that lists his qualifications and stands on street corners hoping passing motorists will slow down and grab one of his resumes.

They may be pushing 40, but the New Kids are returning to the block. The boy band New Kids on the Block, which sold 70 million albums in the 1980s and early '90s, has reunited and plans to release an album with new music and go on tour. The reunion comes 20 years after the release of the group's multiplatinum album, "Hanging Tough." The group disbanded in 1994. Donnie Wahlberg has since acted on television and in movies, while Jordan Knight, Joey McIntyre and Danny Wood released solo albums.

The spotlight operators at Staples Center earned their paychecks Friday night as they closely followed the members of New Kids on the Block, 98 Degrees and Boyz II Men -- a dozen singers in all -- through a 3½-hour concert packed with group choreography, dudes-on-stools balladry and Donnie Wahlberg's frequent excursions into the near-capacity crowd. This was the Los Angeles stop of the so-called Package Tour, a canny attempt by these three veteran boy bands to soak up some of the adoration (and the cash)

New Rumors on the Block: Is Tiffany going to turn out to be the Yoko Ono of the '90s? The Boston Herald reports that the teen singing queen is involved with Jonathan Knight, 21, of New Kids on the Block, and the other New Kids want him to break it off with her because their fans want them romantically unattached.

Not having been to a New Kids concert I cannot honestly say what their concert style is like, but I can say that if it's like their "Hanging Tough" or "Live at Your House" specials on Disney, then it's not as bad as you say. Saying that Jonathan Knight was a candidate for the Andrew Ridgely award for superfluous presence in a pop act was uncalled for. He holds the group together and doesn't need to be in the limelight. When I told my 9-year-old cousin what superfluous meant, she was upset.

As soon as I read your "reviews" of New Kids on the Block, I was disgusted and nauseous ("Low Voltage Outing for New Kids," by Mike Boehm; "Old Kids Watch From a Distance," by Randy Lewis, Sept. 14). It's people like you that feel they always have to dog the New Kids. I know I personally would rather listen to NKOTB than, say, Guns N' Roses. And then there are the people that write (and edit) without checking the facts before printing them for millions of American people to see. Unless that was Mr. Lewis' intention.

The two masked men who broke into a Lancaster home and killed a 35-year-old man early Tuesday did not choose their target randomly and may not have been motivated by robbery, as detectives first assumed, a Los Angeles County sheriff's investigator said Wednesday. Sheriff's officials originally said the slaying of Jonathan Knight appeared to have been part of a home-invasion robbery.

S quealing girls could be heard in the background when New Kid on the Block Donnie Wahlberg called from backstage at the Gene Stone Stadium in Greenville, N . C . Shrieking girls are, in fact, the unofficial trademark of this teen phenomenon. In the tradition of Frankie Avalon, the Monkees and the Bay City Rollers, the New Kids--Jordan Knight, Danny Wood, Jonathan Knight, Joe McIntyre and Wahlberg--drive the little girls wild and the critics to distraction.

Arizona's football teams have been swarmed by football injuries. Strange ones. The plague descended in the spring and has festered through fall camps, and both Arizona and Arizona State head into the regular season without key players. But just how some of them happened is rather bizarre. As in, the players weren't touched. "The injuries that we've had that were season-ending, they had nothing to do with hitting," Arizona State Coach Dennis Erickson said Tuesday during the weekly Pacific 12 football coaches' conference call.

Robbers in ski masks fatally shot a 35-year-old man in his home early Tuesday and escaped. The two men forced their way into Jonathan Knight's house on East Lingard Street just before 4 a.m. and shot him in the head, Deputy Alba Yates said. Four other family members were uninjured, Yates added. Anyone with information on the slaying is asked to call homicide detectives at (323) 890-5500.
