The sentences Jeff Logandro, 32, and Daniel Michielli, 27, both of Blackwood, would receive had been negotiated - three years' probation, 30 days of house arrest, minor fines, and the revocation of their teaching licenses and of contact with the students.

JOHN TRAVOLTA is digging in his (high) heels when it comes to coming out.   No matter how many men come forward about his interest in massage, no matter if he's photographed smooching with his male pilot on the tarmac, Travolta is straight. Straighter than straight. The irony of all this is that no one cares. Travolta isn't a buff, virile action hero, and he hasn't been a romantic lead since the 1980s. Travolta rumors have been around so long, people already assume what they want to assume.
