The school motto Veritas Vincit translates as "truth conquers" and in the case of John Marshall High School, so do wits. The Los Angeles Unified School District named the nine-member team this year's winner of its annual Academic Decathlon on Friday at an awards ceremony at Hollywood High School. The win  advances the team  - national champion in 1995 - to the statewide competition scheduled for late March in Sacramento alongside previous national and state champions Granada Hills Charter and El Camino Real Charter.

It was a routine Friday afternoon. Veteran reporter John Marshall had returned to the KNBC Channel 4 newsroom after working on a story in the field. The subject was unemployment in Southern California, and Marshall had interviewed a single parent so despondent over her year of joblessness that she broke down and cried. Marshall was moved. He told a friend in the newsroom: "You don't know how lucky we are to have jobs." An hour later, Marshall learned he had lost his.

At a quiet moment during a dinner party the other night, a man I didn't know said, with no apparent lead-in, "You know, every male of our generation was profoundly affected by Vietnam. Our individual reactions--to go or not, to deal with our decision--influenced everything that followed in our lives. I try to explain it to my kids, the ongoing centrality of that time to me, and they act as though I'm speaking a different language."

Marshall's Future: John Marshall, fired by KNBC Channel 4 Jan. 17 after two decades as a reporter there, may not be out of work long. At least two other stations want him--KTLA Channel 5 and KCOP Channel 13. One hang-up would be the salary that independent stations can pay: Marshall, 49, was earning about $165,000 a year at KNBC.

KNBC President and General Manager L. Reed Manville released veteran reporter John Marshall because he doesn't "fit" on the new manager's "team"("Axing 'the Best Reporter in Town,' " Jan. 22). Excuse me, coach, but is your computer on line? Unlike a sports manager, a station manager has to keep a player or release him to the competition free of charge. No trading of talent in this game. No future draft picks. No second string. You start or you pack. John Marshall has been the most intelligent, insightful and articulate television reporter in recent memory.

In a neatly ordered hangar at Whiteman Airport, John Marshall sits on a posh black leather sofa surrounded by the things he loves: a marine blue Porsche Carrera, a Great Lakes biplane with red, white and blue stripes and a poster of his wife, actress Joan Van Ark. He stares at an ancient PC while working on his newest love, a Web site he created called eNewswires.com. The site is a paradise for news junkies.

Re the review of "Native American Testimony" ("An Anthology of Indian Voices," Dec. 31): Most of us know John Jay (not John Marshall) was the first Chief Justice of the United States. Marshall was third or fourth, depending on whether you count John Rutledge, who never actually served. (The article also refers to "Blackfeet" Indians.) I took a course at Eastern Montana College last year taught by a Blackfoot lawyer. Her crusade was to inform the world (that) her tribe was Blackfoot, singular or plural.

I have always watched KNBC for local news coverage. I am extremely disappointed by the departures of John Marshall, Keith Morrison and the removal of Colleen Williams from the weekday newscasts. It is sheer lunacy on the part of management to give Paul Moyer $8 million to anchor the news. Why not spend that money on more judicious and in-depth coverage of the news? It is ridiculous to expect better quality news from an organization that is trying to pander to the public's appetite for stars and shallow hype.
