When kids see their parents divorce, sometimes again and again, what kind of influence is to be expected? Certainly not cute little kids with good values. Family values are eventually going to have to undergo major reconstruction in our society and in our country if this problem is really going to be solved.

A Kansas-based church known for celebrating at the funerals of American soldiers killed in war plans to protest the staging of the musical "Rent" at an Orange County high school Friday. The Westboro Baptist Church intends to picket at Corona del Mar High as classes let out and as audience members arrive for the play. Counter-protesters also plan to attend.

Students arriving at Corona del Mar High School on Wednesday, just a week before finals, were stunned to discover that a power failure had blown the school's transformer and shut down the campus, possibly until next week. The power failure at 9:30 p.m. Tuesday affected the school and more than 2,600 residents, a spokeswoman for Southern California Edison Co. said. But just as power was being restored at midnight, a power surge destroyed the school's transformer.

More than a month after controversy erupted over Corona del Mar High School's reported cancellation -- then rescheduling -- of a production of "Rent," the American Civil Liberties Union sued school officials Wednesday for fostering a "sexist" and "homophobic" atmosphere.

I come from a culture where sex is socially accepted, even among teen-agers. I think that over here, kids are forbidden to have sex, almost even to talk about it, which makes it even more exciting. We have a saying in Sweden: "Forbidden fruit tastes the best." I think a lot of American kids have sex for all the wrong reasons--either to upset their parents or impress their peers, but not because of love.

A Corona del Mar High School parents group will announce on Monday the establishment of a foundation to raise money for improvements to the campus, including a 500-seat theater and a technology center. The Corona del Mar High School Foundation was the brainchild of parents who felt that the school had deteriorated in recent years as programs have been canceled and repairs put on hold because of budget restraints.

At Corona del Mar High School, the show will go on. After a flap that raised the ire of the gay community and ruffled feathers across the Newport Beach campus, drama students will be allowed to stage a production of "Rent," a musical about struggling artists in New York City. "I never had a problem with the play selected" by drama teacher Ron Martin, Corona del Mar Principal Fal Asrani said in a statement released Wednesday by the Newport-Mesa Unified School District.

Thirty years ago, a pack of teenage friends could see the end coming. They were football jocks, mostly, guys who had bonded as freshmen and sophomores on the gridiron at Corona del Mar High School. When high school ended and they scattered to the winds, they wondered, what would become of those friendships forged in Sea Kings jerseys, in the shared grit and pain of twice-a-day practices? So they made a pact, 17 of them.

A Newport Beach father defamed his son's high school baseball coach, an Orange County civil jury concluded Thursday, awarding the coach $700,000 in damages. The Superior Court verdicts, reached after less than six hours of deliberations, could help protect youth coaches from so-called "disappointment" lawsuits by parents who claim that coaches fail to help young athletes reach their potential.

Before, there was always someone else, either on the court with him or in the limelight instead of him. Now, it's Garrett Snyder's turn, and this week, he takes center stage for the Corona del Mar boys' tennis team. "I look at it as an opportunity," Snyder said. "I'm just going out there and trying my best. I really want to win and have fun doing it." Playing at No.

Lunchtime arrived at Corona del Mar High and hundreds of students raced to the parking lot, hoping to avoid the daily bottleneck that engulfs this stretch of Eastbluff Drive as they headed off campus to eat. Inside Room 272, a dozen of the school's approximately 200 special education students sorted through brown bag lunches or had just returned from the cafeteria, taking advantage of a head start over the rest of the student body.

Fountain Valley junior Julie Allen, The Times' Orange County girls' cross-country runner of the year in 1999, will transfer to Corona del Mar High next semester. Allen's family is moving into the Corona del Mar attendance area in January, said Julie Allen's mother, Leslee. The Allens put their house on the market last week and it sold within two days. "I'm excited but also sad to leave my friends and teachers," Allen said. "The school has been great my first 2 1/2 years.

It's no surprise that colleges lined up to recruit Kevin Hansen, Corona del Mar's 6-foot-4 senior setter. That was expected, right? His coach does call him one of the best players to ever play at the school. But that's his basketball coach. "I've been here for 30 years," Corona del Mar boys' basketball Coach Paul Orris said. "And if you took the five best basketball players I've seen here, I'd put Kevin right there with them." Not bad for your second sport.
