Holiday activities -- A listing in Thursday's Calendar Weekend section indicated that the fireworks display and related activities at Chino High School would be held Monday.

At 72, Sylvia Gebhart, a security supervisor at La Habra High School whom students and faculty call "Gramma," can still keep order. The great-grandmother does what some describe as one of the toughest jobs on campus. Gebhart, who is in charge of four other campus supervisors, takes no guff. She breaks up food fights and escorts cigarette-smokers and others who break school rules to the principal's office for discipline.

A graffiti-marred school cafeteria where vandals have tipped over trashcans, splashed soft drinks on the ground and even left a small puddle of blood near the door. For a young crime scene investigator, this is heaven. Capitalizing on the popularity of the hit "CSI" television shows -- from Miami to New York -- La Habra High School has hit pay dirt with its forensic science program.

It was one spike, but it left an indelible memory. Sure, La Habra's Keao Burdine showed off her all-around skills throughout this season, leading the Highlanders to their second Southern Section title in three years and their first state final appearance since 1991. And the USC-bound senior may be most remembered for her 33 kills and 23 digs in a thrilling, five-game victory over Lakewood St.

7 TONIGHT COVINA DISTRICT STADIUM Neither school has been to a section final since the early 1980s, but that's not apparent in their level of play. La Habra has won 12 consecutive games with steady defense and an unpredictable offense. The Highlanders surprised Covina last week with a four-receiver, no-back set on their opening drive, marching downfield for a quick score. South Hills, winner of 10 in a row, isn't without a few wrinkles either.

La Habra's Keao Burdine is one of Orange County's most talented girls' volleyball players. The 6-foot-1 senior outside hitter has committed to play at USC next season, and this summer she competed with the U.S. junior national team, which traveled to Cuba for an international tournament. So what memories does she retain from that international experience? Challenging some of the world's top juniors? The blistering level of play? "Cockroaches," Burdine said without hesitation.
