Confronting their racial, ethnic, gender and sexual-orientation differences head-on wasn't always easy for the 20 or so Reseda humanities magnet students who took a class in Interdisciplinary Theater Exchange.

And so Guadalupe Gonzales, a ninth-grader at Panorama High School in Los Angeles, put the two ingredients together in a dish that was named the top winner Tuesday in L.A.

Los Angeles police said they relied heavily on students and their social media skills in tracking down and arresting a trio of suspects Thursday in the fatal stabbing of an 18-year-old at a Reseda high school. Using tweets from students, police said they were able to identify and ultimately arrest the suspects - two of them reputed gang members - in a Van Nuys neighborhood. Kevin Orellano was stabbed to death Wednesday as he was playing handball on campus, which he had attended before transferring to an occupational center last fall.

The Cleveland High School indoor swimming pool will celebrate its reopening Thursday with a synchronized swimming exhibition and swim party. Renovations to the facility--including new electrical equipment, lighting and wider access steps--cost about $500,000. The pool was closed because of severe damage in the 1994 Northridge quake. It reopened a year later, only to be closed again in February 1998 after a defective electrical ground system was found to be inflicting mild shocks on swimmers.
