They run for personal causes, such as their future, friendships and fitness. But there's one goal every member of the Dana Hills boys' cross-country shares this season: reclaiming the title in the competitive South Coast League. That used to be a regular feat for the Dolphins, who won six league titles between 1986-92 and 10 during Coach Tim Butler's 27-year tenure at the school. But Dana Hills has hung just one boys' cross-country championship banner in the last seven years.

The students and teacher Milt Rouse, whose letter you printed June 3 and June 4, should discover other wheels: bicycles for students and a wheeled suitcase for the teacher who lives within two blocks of school. The reality is that drivers want to show off their cars and then they rationalize the desire. As a lesson in economics, I suggest students figure the value of a parking space at a cost equal to neighboring residential property, amortized like a home mortgage. I figure that comes to about $75 per month.

Re "Student Parking Squeeze Spills Beyond Schools," May 29: A minority of selfish teens have caused adults, understandably, to adopt residents-only parking zones near schools. This has created a problem for the majority of teens who are considerate and are already facing a parking shortage. Many adults suggest that the simple answer is for the students to walk to school or to carpool. As with many simple answers, this one is flawed. I am a teacher at Dana Hills High School and live within two blocks of the school.
