I am curious--as well as furious--why the city doesn't come up with the idea of a "Reginald Denny Day." I say, let us have a celebration of life for this poor victim. JASON BERNARD Los Angeles

Jason Bernard might have had a chance at stardom more than 20 years ago, but he didn't want to take the road that led to it. The co-star of today's Lifetime movie "Sophie & the Moonhanger" has been acting since 1961, but the roles offered to most African Americans during the '70s did not appeal to him. "It was the time of the blaxploitation picture and black actors were finally finding work," Bernard explains from his sprawling ranch in Santa Clarita. "Those films were negative and cheaply done."

Fox's fall season continues to unfold in advance of the other networks', with a comedy titled "Herman's Head" joining "Roc" on the Sunday schedule. It arrives at 9:30 p.m. on Channels 11 and 6, one of those series that looks much better on paper than on the screen. It appears that even a lobotomy couldn't salvage "Herman's Head." Interesting idea, bad execution.

A lot of money and effort have gone into "First Couple," Jefferson Beeker's new comedy at the Tiffany about the first gay President of the United States and his "First Gentleman." The physical production is handsome. The play's director, Jules Aaron, has a long history of impressive credits, as does his seasoned cast.

Although you briefly mentioned the students from John Adams and James Foshay junior highs, I'd like to take you to know that there was a vision with these students. The vision was to take minority students in the community and give them a director-mentor, dedicated teacher, the best textbooks and materials, instill a positive attitude, stress self-esteem and include the family with support--and they can learn. The Pre-College Enrichment Academy has transformed my son, Jason K. Bernard from a student to a scholar.

Here's how the Lifetime channel's press release for tonight's movie, "Sophie & the Moonhanger," begins: "The wife of a Ku Klux Klan leader must choose between her husband and his horrifying secret life or protecting her loving and loyal housekeeper." Yet another "Driving Miss Daisy" view of yesteryear race relations through white eyes? Nope. Not by a long shot.

Manny Toledo, boys' soccer coach at El Dorado, focused on the Golden Hawks' progress rather than their loss to Gahr in a championship semifinal of the Brea-Olinda Tournament Saturday night. "I was just happy to be in the final four in the tournament," said the first-year coach. "We have a very young team with seven underclassmen and the team played well--way ahead of where it should be." Indeed, El Dorado (6-1-2) stayed close, forcing Gahr into overtime, before losing, 3-2, in a shootout.
