On the first day of its 1997 drive to raise $1 million from parents, alumni and businesses, the Corona del Mar High School Foundation on Wednesday already had collected $225,000. Last year, the foundation raised $1 million just months after announcing its goal and used the money to pay for repairs at the school. Old lockers were replaced, walls were repainted, carpets were steam-cleaned and both computer and language labs got new equipment.

Less than six months after the Corona del Mar High School Foundation was founded by a group of parents, it has reached its one-year goal of raising $1 million to paint, landscape and buy new equipment for the school. Over the summer, the group spent $800,000 outfitting classrooms with new computers, installing a new telephone system and resurfacing the parking lot.

A former Corona del Mar High School football coach was at times tearful and defiant as he denied in court Thursday allegations that he had sex with his adopted teenage daughter as her "payments" for poor grades or items he bought her. Mark Aubrey Schuster, 49, said he was a hard-driving parent who referred to household chores as "payments" for his purchases of clothes or other merchandise.

What a difference $800,000 can make. The Corona del Mar High School Foundation spent that much money over the summer to clean and paint the school and outfit it with new computers and telephone systems. The finishing touches are now being put on a new language lab that cost the foundation $98,000. Even the parking lot got a make-over with new palm trees, benches and a resurfacing, all paid for by the foundation. "It really looks great," said foundation spokeswoman Kimberly Rothwell.

The more Corona del Mar boys' tennis Coach Tim Mang talked about spectacular freshman Taylor Dent, the more he realized how lucky he was. "He's a fantastic kid," Mang said. "And you know what, he'll never be affected by his talent. He'll never be arrogant. His father did a great job with him. "What a pleasure to work with him. After 25 years of coaching, that's probably my greatest reward--getting Taylor on the team this year. What a great kid." What a great player.
