Iris Stevenson, fresh from a gospel music tour, was vacationing in Los Angeles when a fellow churchgoer told her that the once-heralded music program at Crenshaw High School needed a new mentor. The school's popular music teacher had recently died, and Stevenson--with two decades of experience teaching, composing and performing, and a reputation that stretched across the country--seemed a natural successor. She wavered.

The Oxnard Union High School District approved on Wednesday a $66.7-million budget that includes more than $8 million to buy land for a new high school. The budget for the upcoming school year represents a 21% increase or about $11.4 million more than this year's budget. "We're not seeing any significant changes in the new budget, except for the school building fund," Business Manager Bob Brown said. The 1990-91 budget sets aside about $8.

The bride wore white with pink ribbons. The bridegroom wore a tuxedo and a nervous smile. Under the shade of two trees last Thursday morning at Bolsa Grande High School in Garden Grove, in front of 40 classmates and teachers, Dina Durment and Glen Eads, both 18, recited their marriage vows. The wedding party then went inside, to the school library, for an elaborate reception. Teachers and students agreed that the mock-wedding project had been well done.

Inside Reseda High School, a revolution in home economics is brewing--but not on a stove or in an oven. This was demonstrated on a recent afternoon as 17 girls met in Room H-5 at Reseda High for a home economics class called "Marriage and Family Studies." As each teen-ager softly spoke of what she wanted from life, the ovens and stoves in the back of the classroom looked more and more like relics from an archeological dig than modern teaching aides.

Williams on Tuesday shrugged off questions about relations with his command staff, publicly tangled with a retired deputy chief and a City Council critic, and was confronted with new allegations of racism against 162 of his officers.

Anticipating the deepest funding cuts to public education yet, the Irvine Unified School District mailed home surveys this week asking parents to help guide the budgetary knife. The district mailed about 4,500 surveys to parents with children in the fourth, seventh and ninth grades, asking them to choose classroom and service programs that they believe are the most important and should not be touched and those they consider less vital.

Late to your destination and trapped in traffic? You may not believe it, but the state Department of Motor Vehicles says there are 1 million fewer licensed drivers out there. The department reports that the number of licensed California motorists fell an unprecedented 5.2% last year from 1994--from 20.1 million to 19 million. And nobody at the DMV knows why, although theories abound.
