John Seeley, who turned around Marina High School's struggling football program, has resigned after two seasons, according to the school's athletic director, Larry Doyle. Seeley led Marina to a 6-4 record last fall, the school's best record since 1985. Marina lost 18 consecutive games between 1987 and 1989, but Seeley's Marina teams compiled a 10-10 record the past two seasons. "John was unhappy with a lot of things," Doyle said. "He had been mulling over the decision for some time.

Marina and Foothill high schools decided to shun the forward pass Friday night, choosing to battle it out on the ground at Northrup Stadium. Both teams combined to throw just 18 passes, while rushing the ball 74 times. When the dust cleared, Marina had a 7-3 victory. "We're very lucky to win tonight," Marina Coach John Seeley said. "They shut us down completely on offense." Foothill held Marina to just 98 yards on 37 running plays, stifling the Vikings' previously productive ground game.

Bill Whiteley has resigned as softball coach at Westminster High, citing conflicts with players' parents as the main reason. But school administrators differ with Whiteley over events leading to his resignation. Whiteley, a special education teacher at Westminster, said he quit after several incidents involving parents and because of a campaign to remove assistant Bud Doty from the team.

You can call it good defense. Or you can call it inept offense. But what you can't call it is nail-biting football. For the better part of 3 1/2 quarters, neither visiting Santa Ana nor Marina high schools could put together enough offense to score.

An 18-game losing streak spanning three seasons seems like a distant memory after Marina High School rolled to its second consecutive victory Thursday night with a 6-0 victory over Long Beach Millikan at Westminster High School. Marina (2-3) scored the game's only points in the first quarter when quarterback David Schultz found split end Darren Fields wide open in Millikan's secondary and Fields turned the pass play into a 42-yard touchdown. Dan Armstrong's extra point try was blocked.

"For Blacks, Nov. 7 Carries Taint of 1960s Injustices" (Dec. 21), on the irregularities of the voting process in Florida, was an important addition to the dialogue regarding the recent election. But it's not only black people who feel the impact of the Republican election actions. The disenfranchisement of black voters is an insult to all those, both black and white, who gave their lives to the struggle for equal voting rights and an injury to the progress we all made as a society in the civil rights era. While President-elect George W. Bush and his handlers piously call for unity and a political cease-fire, they continue to blast away at the Rev. Jesse Jackson and others who want to get to the bottom of the Florida vote shenanigans.
