March 11, 1993 | MELODY McGRATH, SPECIAL TO THE TIMES; Melody McGrath is a junior at Sunny Hills High School, where she is a feature editor for Accolade, the student newspaper
When Jeremy was growing up, he was the kind of kid who took Snickers bars from supermarket racks and small toys from the aisles of Toys R Us. It didn't seem like a big deal at the time--a lot of children have taken things without paying for them. But by the time Jeremy was in the seventh grade, he was a semiprofessional thief. While other 12-year-olds went to basketball practice, Jeremy (no real names are used in this story) went to stationary and drugstores to steal.

Re "At a Fork in the Road of Fairness," Commentary, April 3: Jerome Karabel, in his otherwise thoughtful article counterposing the latest federal decisions regarding affirmative action, defies logic and clear thinking in his third paragraph. How can a "truly competitive admissions process" consider race as a factor? Plus or minus. As we move through the extremely difficult process of establishing fairness and merit as standards for admission to our public universities, intellectual honesty must be held as high as any other standard.

Four Alemany High basketball players have been kicked off the team, Coach Kurt Keller said Monday.

Leading scorer Doug Tait and key reserves Matt Corelli and Mike Corr--all seniors--have been suspended indefinitely by Keller because of their conduct Friday at an Alemany girls' basketball game.

Thousands of calendars being sold in Glendale may help teen-agers live better lives, as well as keep track of the date, under a program sponsored by the Glendale Galleria mall to help four Glendale-area youth charities. "It's critical," said Linda Maxwell, co-founder of the We Care For Youth job training program. "We don't have any funding sources at all." In October, the galleria gave at least 10,000 calendars to each of four charities.
