As usual, children are the victims of two so-called adults ("Campus Dispute Comes to a Head," Oct. 10). Riverside County teacher John Maurer's lawyer mentions "principles" and says, "Someone's got to stand up for something." Well, great, Maurer took a courageous stand all right ... for the right to wear a hat? Then he and his boss engage in games of childish one-upmanship, resulting in harm to their students. Shameful on the part of both of these "educators." Terry Schauer Sherman Oaks

While Social Distortion busies itself writing and arranging songs for its next album, band members Dennis Danell and John Maurer plan to take occasional busman's holidays this summer in an offshoot band called Fuel. The band will play one of its first shows tonight at Linda's Doll Hut in Anaheim. "This is more of a hobby than anything, just for fun and to blow off steam," Danell said Thursday. "We can go and play a lot of places we couldn't play in Social D--get back to a more underground thing."

Social Distortion frontman Mike Ness wasted neither time nor sentiment Tuesday at the House of Blues in West Hollywood, glaring out over the capacity crowd and launching a blazing, 90-minute show by shouting "Let's get this done!" If Ness sounded like a man embarking on a necessary but not entirely enjoyable task, it's not because the veteran Orange County punk band's return after a long hiatus forces his burgeoning solo career to the back burner.

Social Distortion. Orange County produced scores of punk bands in the late '70s and early '80s. Social Distortion, formed in 1979, has proved to be the most tenacious, the hardest-working and simply the best. Once given up for dead because of leader Mike Ness's drug problems, the band cleaned up and asserted itself in the late '80s.

The City Council has voted unanimously to begin the process of expanding Palmdale's boundaries to include a 900-acre site where a new community college campus may be built.

Social Distortion faces its first lineup change in more than 10 years with the recent departure of drummer Chris Reece. "It was my decision pretty much," Reece said last week on the phone from his home in Long Beach. "But there were a lot of issues that led up to it. In the past we had pretty much seen eye to eye on how things were going but (recently) we just weren't seeing eye to eye on drum parts. We've just grown different ways musically, and it was time for us to go our separate ways.
