They sport pierced tongues and navels. They wear baggy denim pants and sheer tops exposing their undershirts and bras. They come from all corners of the world, and have few problems interacting with people of different backgrounds. They are members of a freshman class at Chatsworth High School. According to HBO, they represent the changing face and flavor of young America, and they offer a commentary on the nation's present and a peek into its future.

Most of Chatsworth High's baseball players stayed over at first baseman George Spadier's house Tuesday night. They didn't go to sleep until 4 a.m. The players were so excited after defeating Roosevelt, 2-1, to win the City Championship at Dodger Stadium they called Coach Tom Meusborn. This would have been fine, except it was 2:30 in the morning. Prank calls to your coach usually result in running laps until your feet are ready to fall off.

Oh, those 'D' words. Pick one, two, three descriptors--degrading, demeaning, devastating--and they describe Chatsworth High's tough luck in City Section baseball championship games. Another word, this one more appealing to Chatsworth fans, now comes to mind: Dynasty. After the Chancellors defeated Roosevelt, 2-1, for the City Championship before 3,546 Tuesday night at Dodger Stadium, the on-field soiree began. Most of the attendees were underclassmen.

Roosevelt High's baseball team practices at a park that has no mound but plenty of winos. Its star pitcher wears cleats that are falling apart. Few players can afford to buy their own bats. In contrast, Chatsworth has four game uniforms, a pristine home field with a fancy scoreboard, three batting cages and players who pay private coaches when they need to come out of a slump. "There's so many things they have that we don't have," Coach Scott Pearson of Roosevelt said.

Area principals viewed a round of bonuses awarded to schools Wednesday as rewards for test-score improvement but also as motivators for students who will endure another battery of achievement tests in April. Because of that, principals said, schools need to receive their bonuses soon so students see what their hard work can deliver: new computers, textbooks, televisions and even trees to shade their campuses.

You could say the Superior Street kids at Chatsworth High School have been living a 13-year episode of "Friends." But with 20 of the 40 students from Superior Street School's kindergarten class of 1987 graduating together Thursday after spending their entire school careers together, it's more like "Friends" meets "Saved by the Bell" and "The Real World."

On his ninth birthday a couple weeks ago, Sean Meusborn received a pack of baseball cards as a present. When he started going through each one, he stopped when he saw the card for a pitcher from the Philadelphia Phillies. "Hey, Dad, I've got a Randy Wolf card," Sean told his father. Tom Meusborn, baseball coach at Chatsworth High, almost froze in horror. It was as if a fortune teller had selected a tarot card that forecast danger.

The Los Angeles Unified School District's environmental chief has abruptly resigned after weeks of mounting questions about the adequacy of his response to asbestos hazards discovered at several schools last fall.

The Los Angeles Unified School District, which has closed numerous schools and classrooms as the result of asbestos discoveries in the last five months, has adopted new safety guidelines for school repairs and maintenance. The reforms were implemented in the wake of the five-day closure of Chatsworth High School earlier this month, after district inspectors discovered asbestos had been released by work crews drilling holes in classroom walls for wiring.
