The school motto Veritas Vincit translates as "truth conquers" and in the case of John Marshall High School, so do wits.

The win  advances the team  - national champion in 1995 - to the statewide competition scheduled for late March in Sacramento alongside previous national and state champions Granada Hills Charter and El Camino Real Charter.

"Grim Days at Grant High" provided readers with a view of the kinds of problems the dedicated educators in the Los Angeles Unified School District--and many other California districts--face every day. In good times, those problems would be very difficult to overcome. With the budgets we operate under today, it's truly a miracle that we accomplish any of our goals, and yet we do have many educational successes. The piece by David L. Kirp in the same issue ("Good Schools in Bad Times")

President Obama will announce today $8 billion in grants to high-speed rail, an investment that will give a special boost to projects in California, Illinois and Florida as part of a plan to create the nation's first nationwide program of intercity passenger rail service. In all, rail projects in 31 states will get money through the Recovery Act stimulus plan, passed by Congress last year to create jobs, transform travel and spur economic recovery. On a joint trip to Florida today, Obama and Vice President Joe Biden will announce the grants from the U.S. Department of Transportation that the president highlighted in last night's State of the Union Address.

Among the many fine schools of the Los Angeles Unified School District, Ulysses S. Grant High School in Van Nuys was once considered a special place for learning and enrichment. But that was before Proposition 13, before expenses (including teachers' salaries) outpaced state funding and before a high birthrate and immigration swelled enrollment beyond capacity.

Pat Chawki's classmates thought he was dead -- they'd even memorialized him two years ago at their 20th high school reunion. But when one Grant High School alum wrote to Chawki's sister to express her condolences, she learned that the popular former baseball star lay paralyzed and nearly forgotten in a Canoga Park nursing home. Laurie Green discovered that for the last nine years, Chawki has suffered from a rare disorder that renders him fully cognitive, but unable to move or speak.

Their eyes were big and bright and unblinking as they huddled together, more than 70 youngsters aged 7 to 17, all intent on seeing every movement and hearing every word from the old man. They wore the newest and boldest basketball shoes, high-tops of every color and style. And shorts and shirts that cried out for even a splash of black or white. Packed together, they looked like they had been caught in a terrible explosion at a paint factory. Before them, the old man spoke in a strong voice.

As school let out about 3:15 p.m., a 16-year-old Grant High School student and a 17-year-old former student were walking across a bridge on adjacent Oxnard Street when the occupants of a pickup possibly asked them a gang-related question, said Capt. Jim Miller of the Los Angeles Police Department.

Fear was a strong motivator for Grant High on Thursday night. The top-seeded Lancers admitted they were afraid to face eighth-seeded Palisades in a City Championship quarterfinal at Grant. But Grant certainly didn't play scared, sweeping the Dolphins, 15-7, 15-7, 15-11. "We weren't as confident going in as we were against Sylmar," said senior middle blocker Mike Charleston, who led the Lancers (15-0) with 23 kills.

Grant High . . . volleyball school? The Lancers haven't had much success in the set-and-spike department, but that's quickly changing thanks to 6-foot-6 middle blocker Mike Charleston, who has the Lancers (8-0, 5-0 in Sunset League play) approaching their first undefeated regular season. Charleston, a senior, was a standout in Grant's more prominent sport, basketball, averaging 20.1 points and 10.6 rebounds for the league champion.
