Re "Brand Bethany" (June 1): I enjoyed your article but feel you shortchanged those who saved her. Surfer Bethany Hamilton was in shock after being attacked [by a tiger shark on Oct. 31, 2003, in Hawaii]. My son, Holt, was first to reach her, just in front of my grandson Byron. Byron, 15, held onto Bethany and her board as Holt pushed them into a wave. My granddaughter Alana, 13, fearing her best friend would die, paddled alongside. Holt caught up with them at the reef, where he used his rash guard to slow the bleeding.

Eric V. Holt said he believed 15-year-old David Gallardo was stealing the tires off a Porsche when he pulled a shotgun on the youth and a companion as they sat in Gallardo's car on the night of Oct. 29. He thought the youth had pulled a gun on him and when the car began to move, he ducked and the gun went off, killing Gallardo. That was the story Holt told police during four interviews after the incident.

Dividing students in the classroom and teaching them from books that adhere to their religious beliefs would be difficult, a teacher testified Friday in a trial over the contents of school texts. "I'm not sure I could do it well enough. But, if I was ordered to, I'd find a way," second-grade teacher Evelyn Rodriguez said.

When Paula Holt saw David Mamet's "Oleanna" in New York, she says she "walked out of the theater with a group of people who were all shouting at each other." She hopes for a similar response when she produces the Los Angeles premiere of Mamet's controversial play about sexual harassment and political correctness at the Tiffany Theater. "I'll probably be picketed by half of the women's organizations I belong to," Holt said.

After years of playing hard to get in the fast-moving world of product licensing, the Beach Boys have agreed to let their name be used on a line of casual wear that is expected to be available in stores by Christmas, 1986. Designer Sherry Holt, with whom the Beach Boys have formed a joint venture, says the clothes will appeal to a broad range of customers--California girls (Rhonda, Wendy, Barbara Ann), little middle-aged ladies from Pasadena and even guys like Alley Oop.
