Elvis Presley has been dead for 25 years, yet still retains a hold on the imagination of fans around the world. The first-ever remix of an Elvis tune, "A little less conversation... " has just topped the European music charts. And a new box set that includes his 30 No. 1 hits has just been released. Isn't this a great time for a tribute to the king of rock 'n' roll? Yes, say officials of the Hagerstown/Washington County Chamber of Commerce, which is teaming up with the City of Hagerstown to stage "Elvis Lives" in downtown Hagerstown on Saturday, Sept.

The postponement was but a temporary hiccup in bringing the King and his still flaming star to Washington County.

In action and attitude, he has a stranglehold on the spotlight that is captivating for some, infuriating for others, and as raw and real as the rhymes he spits out with rapid precision. It's Eminem's show. We just listen/watch/respond to it. Do we ever. Next week, the multi-platinum selling rapper takes another step toward multimedia domination when "8 Mile," his film debut, opens nationwide.
