Finding good screenwriters to pen authentic teen films has always been a dilemma in Hollywood, but New Line Cinema thinks it has the answer. Why not get a teen-ager to write the script? New Line went straight to the source recently when it bought a screenplay written by 17-year-old Jessica Kaplan, a senior at the Crossroads School in Santa Monica.

A couple from Marina del Rey were among the five people who died Friday when a light plane crashed into an apartment building in the Fairfax district, relatives said Monday. Tony Vinatieri, 42, and Bonnie Vinatieri, 41, had joined the flight to Sun Valley, Idaho, because the pilot, Jeffrey T. Siegel, was a contractor who wanted to show them houses he had built there, John Vinatieri of Napa said.

Congratulations to 17-year-old high school student Jessica Kaplan on selling her first screenplay ("Fast Times for Santa Monica Student," Calendar, Aug. 23). The story about white suburban kids becoming infatuated with gangsta culture with tragic results certainly sounds topical and high-concept. At the risk of offending New Line Single Cell producer Michael Stipe, I found his comment, "I know all too well that you can't get a 40-year-old screenwriter to write something like this," a bit bewildering.

November 19, 1992 | TRISHA GINSBURG, SPECIAL TO THE TIMES; Trisha Ginsburg, a senior at Los Alamitos High School, is editor of the Crusader, the student newspaper, and a regular contributor to High Life
This is it. The ruthless ritual that balances the past 12 years of a student's academic career against the uncertainties and promises of the future is under way. Seniors, take heart; you're not alone. As college application deadlines approach, many seniors are praying for that last creative rush in order to turn out the perfect essay; others are pushing everything aside in a procrastinating panic, while a select few have already mailed theirs. "I just kind of let everything pile up," said Los Alamitos High School senior Jennifer Potter, 17, with a shrug.

Imagine that "The Merchant of Venice" is over and that its characters have all been transported to a culturally diverse city that is called Venice but is very much like New York, 1995. In other words, the play has gone into overtime, where "all the rules have changed." That is the title and the premise of the new A. R. Gurney comedy, "Overtime," currently having its premiere at the Old Globe Theatre.
