A state appellate court has thrown out the 12-year sentence of a drunk driver who killed an engineer in a traffic accident, saying that the driver's eight previous drunk driving convictions make him eligible for up to life in prison. "We're pleased with the ruling, and we expect the case to go back to court in about a month," said Sandi Gibbons of the Los Angeles County district attorney's office. Johnny Castro, 39, killed Mahdad Koosh in a January 1998 accident on the Golden State Freeway.

Minuteman Tech, a regional, vocational-technical high school in the western Boston suburb of Lexington, is a far cry from the old image of a vocational high school. Minuteman looks more like a high-tech office park than a school.

Among America's more than 250,000 model railroaders, John Nehrich is a living legend. When he graduated from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in 1972, he gave up a career as a chemist to devote his life to a model railroad layout in the basement of a college dorm. He spends at least 60 hours a week working on the massive layout that he and RPI students painstakingly have put together over the last two decades.
