As a parent of a severely handicapped 17-year-old, I take personal offense at the article on the "mother from hell" (Times, May 5). I, too, have advocated strongly for my own son and assisted many other families in obtaining services for their children. In doing so, I have found time and again that using cooperation and positive communication skills is much more effective and productive than the hysterical tactics she describes. Her attitude and behavior are a perfect example of why many professionals are so defensive when dealing with parents.

Director Benjamin Hoppe embraces low economics and loosely blends commedia dell'arte traditions by way of slapstick for a fun though slightly perplexing production of Moliere's "The School for Wives" at the Knightsbridge Theatre. This uncredited adaptation includes a character (sometimes with a selected audience member) reading from the script or from script annotations, as well as explanations for terms that might confuse and a scattering of four-letter words.

There were a lot of double takes as five sets of twins entered kindergarten at the same Portland, Me., school. "We've had twins before, of course, but we never had five sets of them," said Alan M. Argondizza, principal of Longfellow Elementary School. The twins are Ely and Amos LeBlanc-Simpson; Adrianne and Carrie Locke; Monica and Jessica Wetherington; Eric and Scott Wespi, and Lacey and Jeffrey Smith. But teachers won't be seeing double.

Tradition looked elegantly smashing the other afternoon with most of the just-announced Las Madrinas debutantes lined up in a row on the bridge to the home of Mrs. Fulton Haight in Santa Monica, wearing smiles, silks and crisp cottons and holding nosegays with long ribbon streamers. They stood just behind president Mrs. Thomas Techentin, in polite protocol announcing their names and greeting several hundred tea guests. The affair is the official prelude to the 53rd annual Debutante Ball on Dec.

In the Rev. Eugene H. Peterson's retelling of the Bible, when Jesus raises a young girl from the dead, he first has to work his way through neighbors bringing casseroles to the grieving family's home. The poetic "valley of the shadow of death" from Psalm 23 becomes simply "Death Valley." And when God prepares to flood the Earth, he decides to spare Noah because "Noah was different. God liked what he saw in Noah."

The girls were on fire. They also steamed up the joint with sexy, sensational choreography. And the guys? They weren't bad, either, especially when shirtless, in suits or strutting their own slinky stuff. One wanted to see more of all of them in "Jazz Dance LA 2001," the seventh annual choreographers' showcase held at Cal State L.A.'s Luckman Theater over the weekend.

TED AX knows he should wear earplugs when he leans into the noisy engine compartment of an MG sports car. He's been working among clanging metal and whirring power tools in garages for the last 15 years and has already developed tinnitus, a ringing in the ears that is one of the most common symptoms of hearing loss caused by excessive noise.
