Shame on the Walnut Valley Unified School District for usurping the Diamond Bar High School teachers' decision to prevent the graduation of those students who failed certain courses (June 11). Kudos for the teachers who instill a badly needed value system in young people who should learn that you are not supposed to get something for nothing. Why should the others extend themselves in excelling in their studies when others get a diploma just because they have vocal parents? I am very upset.

What began as a student's joke about a gun at Diamond Bar High School quickly warped into an ominous warning of a Columbine-style attack -- complete with rumors of a hit list for a Friday pep rally -- spread by text messages, phone calls and the Internet. And Principal Denis Paul's every effort to extinguish the growing rumor fueled it instead. By Friday morning, staff estimated that as many as half of the school's 3,260 students were absent.

Cook's contact with the girl, who is now 18, is alleged to have escalated from kissing to sex acts between December 1995 and June 1996, despite her objections.

Bob Withers thinks he's in coaching heaven, and his Diamond Bar High boys' basketball team hasn't even won a championship yet. Every day, he looks forward to practice. Every game, he can't wait to try new strategies. Withers is the beneficiary of a group of players who combine brains and brawn. Senior forwards Zeeshan Hyder and Nathan Lyons-Smith scored 1,560 and 1,540, respectively, on the SAT, and each had a perfect score of 800 on the math portion of the test.

Kevin Na said he is dropping out of Diamond Bar High to pursue a professional golf career. Na, 17, said he will forego his senior year and turn professional after the U.S. Amateur in August. He hasn't qualified for the event, but a victory in next week's U.S. Junior Amateur in San Antonio or a qualifying score at Monday's sectional qualifying at Western Hills Country Club would give him a berth. Na is the second-ranked junior golfer in the country, according to Golfweek magazine.

Diamond Bar, which won 17-14, was given an extra down when officials became confused after Upland had declined a third-down holding penalty.

The signing of a national letter of intent marks the end of the recruiting process for most high school athletes. But the preparation for college--especially the admissions and financial aid paperwork--should begin early in an athlete's high school career. That is why more than 500 students and parents are expected to attend the fourth College Preparation Seminar at Diamond Bar High on Saturday. The seminar is open to families from all over the Southland. Admission is free.

The 650 capped-and-gowned teenagers who will be graduated from Diamond Bar High School tonight have many reasons to be proud. Well more than half will attend college--many at some of the finest schools in the country--and the class has helped the school win numerous academic and athletic honors. But teachers at the school believe that some members of this year's class missed a crucial lesson in responsibility, and that the school district has flunked a test of character.
