Every decent human being in the Huntington Beach High School district should be outraged at the ludicrous action taken against Jim Harris, Ocean View High School basketball coach. If the school board represents the well being of the students and is in quest of excellence in our high schools, they will intervene and correct this grave injustice. Jim is guilty of being totally devoted to young people. He likes basketball, but he loves the kids. They become family to him. He is the ideal role model that every parent wants his child to have.

Anthony Brown and Avery Johnson have been best friends since seventh grade. And now, in their senior basketball season at Huntington Beach Ocean View, their closeness, unselfishness and knowledge of each other's strengths and weaknesses come through as if they were brothers. "We have that connection," the 6-foot-7 Brown said. Added the 6-4 Johnson: "We're just clicking. It makes our team as one because we can get things done." There are teams with talent, teams with chemistry and teams with intelligence, all of which are enjoyable to watch and admire.

Century old wineries, hand-painted pottery, the annual autumn goose feast . . . This is, in part, what makes Pezinok, Slovakia, special. But resident Jan Boris is interested in something else entirely. He calls it "World famous American high school basketball." His No. 1 favorite team? The Ocean View High Seahawks.

Traditionally, the Sunset League basketball circle was a tight one. Coaches fraternized after games and after scouting other teams at preseason tournaments. They worked together as counselors at a summer camp in Westminster. Also, the players from Edison, Fountain Valley, Huntington Beach, Marina, Ocean View and Westminster high schools were well acquainted. Many had played against each other since elementary school, and many were teammates on youth traveling all-star squads.

Barring injury or other misfortune, Greg Harris is scheduled tonight to make his first start for the Padres since breaking his right middle finger attempting to bunt on June 21. But until he does, Padre players and coaches should be advised to keep their distance and Harris his now-healthy fingers crossed. Harris, you see, has not exactly been riding a streak of fortune this season.

The parents took their firstborn daughter to all the games. The father played guard for the college team. The mother sat in the stands with the baby's carriage parked in front of the band. The music in the cramped, noisy, sweaty gymnasium was sweet to their ears. The band's bass drum thumped an endless beat, the basketball beat out its own rhythm on the hardwood floor and the fans screamed their song. Years later, the father became a high school basketball coach, and so did the child.
