Most of those efforts involved trying to make a noose out of bedsheets, investigator James Buckley wrote in a report released Monday. Jason Hoffman, 18, finally did hang himself in his cell Oct.

For Granite Hills High School, a 6-3 win over defending San Diego Section champion Santana last Friday, was the impetus that helped move the Eagles from last week's No. 4 spot to second in this week. Santana, however, not only lost to Granite Hills, but was also beaten by Valhalla, to drop from third to fifth in this week's list. Valhalla, meanwhile, moved from seventh to fourth. Meanwhile, Patrick Henry won a pair of games last week to improve its record to 13-1 and hold on to the top spot.

After being nearly invincible in Grossmont League play, Granite Hills High School (12-3, 20-5) dropped its second straight game Monday, allowing five unearned runs in the seventh inning in a 6-5 loss at El Capitan (9-6, 14-10). With his team leading by 5-1, Granite Hills starting pitcher Mike Raskind began the seventh by walking the last three hitters in the El Capitan batting order. Reliever George Bishop then walked the first batter he faced.

The San Diego Union-Tribune was inundated with telephone calls Thursday from people urging that it run a large photograph of the officer who stopped the Granite Hills High School shooting suspect high on the front page. The hundreds of callers, who apparently were responding to a request they heard on the popular Roger Hedgecock talk radio program, placed editor Karin Winner in an uncomfortable position.

Granite Hills High School, which seemingly could not get a break or win the big game, finally got a break Friday. And it turned the break into a victory at La Mesa. Grossmont's Dave Entrekin booted Steve Friar's two-out grounder in the top of the seventh inning to score the tying and go-ahead runs for Granite Hills in a 7-3 Grossmont League playoff victory at Grossmont.

Testifying in Hoffman's preliminary hearing, Daniel Barnes said he dove through a door just as the senior at the El Cajon school fired a blast that shattered the door's window.

The first time a local high school was shot up by a student, Leonardo Morreno was able to explain it away to his 6-year-old daughter as the isolated act of a disturbed young man. The second time, the explanation didn't come so easily. "This is more bad," Morreno said Friday as he vacuumed his van in this working-class suburb about 15 miles east of San Diego.

Amid the blackboards and the basketball hoops at Granite Hills High School and neighboring Santana High students see the same incongruous sight: cops with guns. The two suburban San Diego County campuses are the rule, not the exception. Schools nationwide are arming themselves to protect against their own. Parents and students who once would have winced at the notion are now willing--even eager--to welcome well-armed officers on campus.

There had been time for tears to dry, no time yet for wounds to heal. Santee Mayor Randy Voepel had returned to work Thursday for his first full day since the shooting at Santana High School two weeks ago. It was early afternoon when he got the telephone call. Another shooting. In neighboring El Cajon. At Granite Hills High School. "All I could do is turn on the radio and try not to cry," said Voepel, who calls himself a small-town, part-time mayor.
