BRIEFLY : RUNAWAY GIRL, 16, GETS LIFE IN MURDERS.

A 16-year-old Lancaster runaway was sentenced Thursday to four concurrent life sentences for her part in the grisly slayings of three members of an Arizona family.

Kimberly Lane, who was 14 at the time of the killings, also received seven years for armed robbery. That sentence is to be served consecutively, after the life terms.

Lane, who was charged in the killings along with a 49-year-old neighbor with whom she ran away from home and a young transient they met in Arizona, will be eligible for parole in about 29 years, Mohave County prosecutors said.

Area boy sentenced in manslaughter case

LANCASTER - A 16-year-old Lancaster boy convicted of voluntary manslaughter for shooting to death his mother's boyfriend was sentenced Thursday to serve time in the California Youth Authority.

The boy, whose name has not been released because of his age, could be kept in CYA until he turns 25, but his defense attorney said the teen likely will serve about three years.

The boy was charged in the September 1997 slaying of 42-year-old Reggie Poindexter, who was shot as he walked down the stairs in his home in the 44000 block of 17th Street East.

McKeon pushes bill on school funding

LANCASTER - Education legislation sent to the House floor would remove partisan federal politics from the process of distributing aid to schools, said U.S. Rep. Howard P. ``Buck'' McKeon.

The Dollars to Classroom Act, approved 19-18 on Wednesday by the House Education and Workforce Committee, would consolidate 31 different federal education programs totaling $3.37 billion next year and send the money to states in block grants, which remove the necessity for individual applications for aid.
