Melvin Michael Hoffman, 53, and Regina Anne Chatien, 43, were told to serve 120 hours of community service or pay a $500 fine, said Deputy City Atty. Michael D. Schwartz, who handled the case.

In the new drag race movie "The Fast and the Furious," one dramatic scene shows a driver roaring back and forth through the deserted parking area of Dodger Stadium. Obviously, the fearless youth is preparing for the day he faces the biggest test of his life: leaving a Dodger game early to beat the traffic. The wimpy and the wordy: Before the movie began, incidentally, a cautionary note on the screen said, "We appreciate your support in creating a quiet, movie-going experience."

Will Thurston, softball coach at Moorpark College, returned home Tuesday night from a two-day stay at Westlake Medical Center after passing out Sunday afternoon at Dodger Stadium. "It's one of those things that they aren't quite sure (what happened)," Thurston said. "All they know is I have some sort of deficiency with the sugar in my blood. Probably hypoglycemia." Thurston, 36, collapsed soon after arriving with his sons, Kyle, 7, and Nick, 5, for the Dodger game against Philadelphia.

At a recent Dodger game, I sadly watched two 10-year-old boys drink their very large sodas and continually horse play with each other during the playing of our National Anthem. It wasn't the boys who upset me, boys will be boys; it was their parents. Not once did they do or say anything to stop the boys from playing around. Most people seemed bored or too embarrassed to share this brief moment of national respect. President Reagan is correct: We are not teaching values or respect and that is very evident in the stands of most major sporting events.
