Although there are people who are born crusaders and devote their lives to a cause, Alyce Morris, 66, makes it quite clear that she wasn't one of them. Instead, a crusade was thrust upon her almost 30 years ago, when the former actress and model's 2-year-old son was making no progress toward walking or speaking.

David DeCoteau's "Leather Jacket Love Story" could well be the sunniest gay movie ever made, yet it is also genuinely poignant. It's campy, raunchy and funny as well, glowing with an unabashed gay sensibility. It's no less perceptive for having been made with a light touch and an ear for broad humor and has an easy, graceful style heightened by Howard Wexler's beautifully modulated black-and-white cinematography.

Two days after Pulaski County, Ky., Sheriff Sam Catron was killed by a long-distance rifle shot to the head, one of his campaign rivals and a worker for the rival campaign were arrested in connection with the crime. The bizarre revelation was made all the more so by the memory of another crime, committed 44 years ago in the same town, Somerset: Catron was 4 and playing in his house when his father, the police chief, was shot and critically injured on the porch by an alleged bootlegger.

When a woman hits fouls in the game of love, check out her father, who may have thrown her the curves. That's the idea behind "The Heiress," Ruth and Augustus Goetz's masterful adaptation of Henry James' "Washington Square," a psychologically penetrating novel about the vulnerable daughter of a disapproving father. The show, in a handsome production at the North Coast Repertory Theatre, has bombed only once--on an out-of-town tryout in New Haven, Conn.

In the spring of 1976, a group of long-haired 20-somethings dreaming of a utopia among the trees bought 304 acres of rolling woodlands and moved into canvas tepees. They slept on rug-covered dirt floors, cooked over campfires and wood stoves, raised chickens and goats, tended an organic garden and endured summer heat and winter cold.

For the better part of a year, Joseph and Claudette Valencia searched for clues that would help police catch their son's killer. Every Wednesday, Joseph sat at the Mid-City bus stop where his 19-year-old son Giovanni, a Marine who was home on leave, had been shot in broad daylight during an argument with a stranger last August. Joseph always had a framed picture of his son in uniform, a composite police sketch of the killer, and a large poster pleading for any leads. Three Wednesdays ago, Det.
