Here I am: a college-educated professional in what's usually described as "the affluent Westside." A desirable listener/consumer, one would think. Yet, once more, I'm being ignored by the business interests of commercial radio. Because I have no patience for the archaic, the banal or the puerile, I had no radio "home" until KEDG's J.J. Jackson (and the cadre of deejays he assembled) put music on the air that I could listen to without punching the channel selector every 30 seconds in frustration.

Ventura High scored two fourth-quarter touchdowns to surge past Simi Valley, 27-14, in a nonleague opener Friday night at Simi Valley. Cougar J.J. Jackson rushed for 177 yards in 31 carries and had scoring runs of three and five yards. Jackson also had scoring runs of 73 and 38 yards nullified by penalties. After running back Chad Basalone scored on a 10-yard run to give Simi Valley a 14-13 lead, the Cougars began their fourth-quarter comeback.

Jason Parker and Jasen Rollauer of Georgia, seeded eighth in doubles, became the first upset victims of the U.S. Tennis Assn. Boys 12 National Tennis Tournament Wednesday at Balboa Park's Morley Field. They lost to unseeded Paul Galichia of Kansas and Ross Loel of California, 7-5, 6-4. The top seven-seeded doubles teams advanced to today's third round, but not as easily as the top eight seeds advanced to today's fourth round of singles.

Twenty years ago today, MTV changed the face of cable--for better or worse. It began at 12:01 a.m. on Aug. 1, 1981, with the video for the Buggles' "Video Killed the Radio Star," the first of countless videos featuring artists who were famous and others we would come to know. Over the course of two decades, we've seen the move toward game shows ("Remote Control"), unscripted shows ("The Real World"), award shows ("Video Music Awards") and news programs, all aimed at young viewers who became known as the "MTV generation."

Casey Preston thought his hand was broken. His passing hand, no less. But Preston shook off the crunching hit he took in the second quarter, threw for 350 yards and three touchdowns, ran for another and caused general chaos to pace Westlake High's 37-15 nonleague victory over Ventura on Friday. The master of the Westlake offense? Preston doesn't think so. "We've got three great receivers and our offensive line played great," Preston said.
