The Blair Island Cafe was supposed to be good for the Whitaker neighborhood. A clean, colorful place with Mediterranean-style pasta and seafood, an alternative to the organic bakeries and cheap microbrew taverns that have always nourished this community of 70-year-old bungalows, food co-ops and what appears to be the largest remaining population of Volkswagen buses in the hemisphere.

There is etiquette to winning and losing, and Washington State Coach Mike Leach clearly violated it Saturday night in Eugene. Or at least Oregon defensive coordinator Nick Aliotti thought so. Aliotti blasted Leach in a post-game rant after Oregon's 62-38 victory. Oregon, leading 62-24 in the fourth quarter, cleared the bench to give the reserves some playing time. Leach, however, left his starting offense on the field and scored two late touchdown passes, the last with 11 seconds remaining.

After the 1984 Summer Olympics, I thought that the television networks would finally realize that track and field is recognized as a major sport throughout the world and there is a market for this sport in Los Angeles. But I was wrong. On a recent weekend, CBS televised a tape of the NCAA outdoor championships which had been held two weeks earlier. The USA-Mobil championships were not televised by any network or even by any of the so-called sports cable stations. I suppose I will have to move to Eugene, Ore., or Western Europe to receive television coverage of track and field on a regular basis.

Question: I am a medical student in London, now on holiday in the States. I read your column about head lice and want to suggest a possible solution. In between leaving secondary school and starting medical school, I worked for a year in a boys' boarding school. We had many lice attacks and found that the most effective way to eliminate them was to use a very fine lice comb with plenty of hair conditioner.

So here's this Costa Mesa blues man I knew nothing about, with a debut CD on an unheard-of custom label, and it turns out to be something the whole blues world should toast with the best whiskey in the bar. Brooks is a Wichita, Kan., native who has been playing on the Southern California blues scene since 1989. His biggest credit to date has been teaming with Southland blues institution Bernie Pearl in the Big Muddy Trio and the Bernie Pearl Blues Band.

Coaches always talk about how their teams threw a game away. Well, USC almost did it in the literal sense Thursday night at McKale Center. USC was protecting a 64-63 lead against Arizona with two seconds remaining when forward Wayne Carlander inbounded the ball behind the Trojans' basket. He threw what USC Coach Stan Morrison later called a "94-m.p.h. fastball," and it didn't find the intended receiver, Derrick Dowell. The ball went out of bounds without being touched by a Trojan.

After decades of receiving little assistance from the commercial vacation industry, travelers with disabilities now can turn to a variety of specialty tour operators who compete for their business and operate programs designed just for them. Although this is progress, some individuals with disabilities prefer to vacation in the general travel world and not in segregated groups.

When Robert Harris was offered the top job at the USC School of Architecture eight years ago, he was forced to choose between two very different ways of working and living. As a professor and department head at the University of Oregon, Harris could either continue his pleasant, well-run life in sleepy Eugene--or he could assume a job at a school that had lost direction in a city that was energetic and changing. "The options were radical but the choice was easy," Harris recalls.

In the eyes of Dean Andrea, the UC Irvine women's basketball coach, all things are not equal in the Pacific Coast Athletic Assn. It's not exactly a revelation, but it's accurate. Cal State Long Beach was 33-3 last season and reached the Final Four of the NCAA playoffs. Hawaii, Nevada Las Vegas and Fresno State each won 20 or more games, finishing second, third and fourth in the PCAA. Then came the Anteaters.

No one seriously believes Notre Dame can get to the national title game with eek-out victories over Purdue and Brigham Young parlayed with replay-reviewed goal-line stands against Stanford. Only the Southeastern Conference scores near-pointless points for hair-raising defense combined with offense that turns your eyelids to anvils. "It's just who we are," Notre Dame Coach Brian Kelly half-apologized after Saturday's 17-14 win over BYU. "Embrace who we are, I guess is what I'm saying.
