The message in Little Red Riding Hood is supposed to be: Don't talk to strangers. But Culver City school officials have eliminated an illustrated version of the Grimm fairy tale from their fall reading program because they believe that it sends youngsters a very different message: Alcohol will make you feel good. An adaptation by author Trina Schart Hyman, distributed by Houghton-Mifflin Co., shows a bottle of wine tucked among the goodies Little Red Riding Hood was taking to her ailing grandma.

A bid by Fox Hills residents to break away from the Los Angeles Unified School District and join Culver City schools will probably be decided in the voting booth. Fox Hills is part of Culver City, but was left out of the Culver City Unified School District when boundaries were drawn decades ago, in part because no one lived there then.

Dietrich Brandt, searching for a sport in which he could excel, started swimming competitively three years ago as a freshman at Culver City High. Although his success was not immediate, Brandt improved. Last month, he swam a leg on the school's 200-meter freestyle relay team that set a record at the Southern Section 3-A Division meet. Brandt is hoping that a successful senior season can guarantee a scholarship to a Division I college. That dream is in jeopardy, though.
