The NCAA restored the eligibility of Kentucky receiver Harold Dennis on Tuesday after he broke his contract for a possible movie about his life. Kentucky filed an appeal after Dennis was ruled ineligible Monday. In the appeal, the school said Dennis canceled an agreement he had with a California company that allowed it to offer his story to production companies. Dennis, a junior walk-on who has played in one game this season, was badly burned in a bus crash in 1988 that killed 27 people.

Two men were sentenced to federal prison Monday after pleading guilty to a scam that bilked the American Red Cross out of thousands of dollars in Hurricane Katrina funds. David Robert Candelaria, 37, and Harold Dennis Oats, 26, worked as employees at a Red Cross call center in Bakersfield, where they filed false claims to get money wired to themselves or to family and friends. U.S. District Judge Anthony Ishii sentenced Candelaria to 18 months in prison and Oats to 10 months.

I would like to point out that in Jonathan Kirsch's review of two paperback books on Nelson Mandela (The Book Review, Oct. 5), there are certain misstatements that should not be permitted to go unchallenged. The opening sentence of the review: "By the brutal if simple expedient of imprisoning him, the government of South Africa has succeeded in cutting off Nelson Mandela from his family, his people, his work, his leadership of the South African Liberation movement." Because South Africa is "fair game" for almost any form of condemnation in the media, it is rare for the criticism to be subjected to the constraints of objectivity.

A year ago last Sunday, three ambulance drivers took injured children to hospitals after the deadliest drunk-driving-related traffic accident in U.S. history. On Mother's Day, Lannis Garnett, his wife, Gladys, and Mayme Walters were among guests at services marking the first anniversary of the crash that killed 24 children and three adults aboard a church bus and left many of the 40 survivors with severe burns. "You relive it quite often," said Garnett, who with his wife operates Owen County Life Squad at Owenton.

As songwriters who began collaborating in 1957, composer Lee Pockriss and lyricist Paul Vance already had numerous hits behind them when Vance made a fateful summertime visit with his family to a beach on Long Island, N.Y. His young daughter's experience wearing a bikini for the first time that day in 1960 would provide the inspiration for the songwriting duo's biggest-selling hit: "Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini. " Pockriss, whose music career spanned television, film and Broadway, died Nov. 14 at his home in Bridgewater, Conn., after a long illness, said his wife, Sonja.
