Back in the 1970s, when most teenagers could rattle off the titles of songs by Led Zeppelin, Jethro Tull, Bad Company and other rock 'n' roll bands, a 13-year-old named Evan Marshall had a different idol in music: Chet Atkins, the revered, country-based guitar picker. A classical violin student since the age of 7, Marshall saw Atkins performing one night on television, and the seeds were planted for a career as a solo mandolinist.

Chet Atkins' concert at the Ambassador Auditorium on Saturday night should have been accompanied by an 800 number: "The Nashville Guitar Sound With 100 Pop Hits!" Atkins didn't quite make it to the century mark, but he did make a valiant attempt to touch every base he could--from the Beatles, Elvis and Ellington to a climactic medley in which he abandoned his customary guitars for a high-stepping set of self-described "lacerating variations" on country fiddle.

Juan Antonio Mendez never felt what hit him. A bullet does that. The small lead plug moving close to the speed of sound shocks and deadens the tissue and organs it crushes. Fear and confusion heighten the torpor of a gunshot wound. And at this point in his armed robbery of an electronics store in Koreatown, Juan Mendez is in full panic. The plan has come apart. A young Brinks guard, Ramiro Garcia, isn't showing scared.

Ruling that a lawyer's "inappropriate" conduct had "tainted the trial," a judge Wednesday tossed out a $1.9-million verdict against the Simi Valley Unified School District in the case of a former student struck by a car while crossing the street on her way to school. The decision could lead to a new trial. If so, it would be the third jury trial in the case's convoluted, seven-year history.

"Guns for Hire" (by Miles Corwin, Nov. 28) was right on the mark. As both an Orange County deputy district attorney who has prosecuted armed private security guards for the negligent discharge of a firearm and a reserve Los Angeles Police Department officer, I can attest that private security guards are generally undertrained. After handling several of these cases, I believe that the Department of Consumer Affairs needs to re-evaluate its licensing guidelines. As society becomes less tolerant of crime, its tolerance for less-skilled "officers," even those who violate the law, will inevitably increase.

Pickit Line and the Andy Rau Band, two Orange County bluegrass groups with hopes of building reputations beyond the local scene, put on a small festival of their own Saturday night at Shade Tree Stringed Instruments. So far, both bands have released self-made cassettes and have begun making their way before a wider range of fans at regional bluegrass festivals. At the Shade Tree, both could have used some fine-tuning and focus when it came to presenting an extra-musical personality.

Performers from the Orange County pop scene continue to churn out recordings at a furious pace, making 1990 an exceptional year for quantity, quality and stylistic breadth. Those reviewed below are rated on a scale from * (poor) to ***** (a classic). *** T.S.O.L. "Strange Love" (Enigma) With the recent departure of founding bassist Mike Roche, T.S.O.L. lost the last strand connecting the band to its origins a decade ago as a Huntington Beach punk group.
