USC, on the verge of reviving its storied football tradition under Coach John Robinson, is encountering some new academic embarrassments.

A high school principal in Mission Viejo has told at least 300 students that they have to retake their advanced placement exams after an investigation found some students had cheated. In a letter to parents, the Trabuco Hills High School principal said the College Board and Educational Testing Services nullified the scores of students who took the tests in May. The letter said an investigation found that a "number of students" cheated on a statistics exam. The probe also found the school failed to follow proper test-taking guidelines.

In recent months the Planned Parenthood Federation of America has been made the scapegoat for many of America's problems. I would like to set the record straight. Planned Parenthood is a professional service agency.

Planned Parenthood of Orange County's services also include medical referrals, counseling, women's gynecological services and educational and testing services for sexually transmitted diseases for both men and women.
