Johnny Mountain rushed for 208 yards in 37 carries and scored 2 touchdowns to lead Anaheim High School to a 21-7 victory over Kennedy Friday night at Western High. Mountain, a 6-foot 2-inch, 220-pound running back, had little trouble with the Kennedy defense, plowing over linemen and breaking tackles for extra yardage. Although Kennedy looked good early in the game and scored on its first possession, the Fighting Irish hurt their cause with five turnovers in the game.

Along with his strong legs, a well-conditioned heart and pun-wonderful name, Johnny Mountain provided yet another boost to the Foothill High School football program last week: a school single-game rushing record. Mountain, The Times' Player of the Week, rushed for 248 yards in 32 carries and scored a touchdown Friday night, leading Foothill to a 13-7 nonleague victory over Marina. Mountain broke the former record of 220 yards set by Mark Templeton in the 1981 Southern Section championship game.

Sylvia O'Brion, 76, sat beside an oil lamp and wood-burning stove in her clapboard cabin on the sub-zero night, strumming her banjo and singing: "This is my home where the bobcats holler and the wild deer roam." She has lived in the primitive dwelling without running water or electricity on the slopes of Dead Fall Mountain her entire life. She shuns modern conveniences. She lives alone in one of the isolated pockets beyond the power lines in West Virginia.

Sometimes I think it's become the latest thing to say negative things. Write a negative letter about KABC-TV--or Gary Franklin--and your letter will surely appear in the Calendar (Calendar Letters, May 10). Well, I, for one, would like to thank KABC-TV for their 3-D shows! I watched both the "Eye on L.A. Swimsuit Spectacular" and "Gorilla at Large" and the 3-D was great! Yes, when Chuck Henry and Johnny Mountain pushed things out at us, those were cheap thrills, but they were still fun to watch and made me laugh.
