In "A Time for Life" (at 8 tonight on KTLA-TV Channel 5), a frail teen-age boy fishing over the side of a boat is having trouble reeling in his catch. An older boy, excitedly urging him not to give up, braces him and helps hold the fishing rod steady.

LONDON - When Alan Knipe succeeded Hugh McCutcheon as coach of the U.S. men's volleyball team, he inherited a gold-medal winning program and a boatload of pressure. The U.S. has endured an up-and-down quadrennial since winning at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, but its straight-sets victory over winless Tunisia on Monday offered more proof it could be peaking at an opportune time. And Knipe continued to put his own stamp on the program, sitting regulars David Lee, Clayton Stanley and Reid Priddy for the 25-15, 25-19, 25-19 victory with a Wednesday quarterfinal match against Italy already secured.

In rebuttal to Dan Sullivan's unjust praises of "Most Happy Fella," recently at the Pasadena Civic ("Serious Production of 'The Most Happy Fella,' Feb. 24). The casting of John Raitt for the role of Tony makes about as much sense as seeing Carol Burnett do Bruennhilde. He's a nice singer and has a fairly pleasant tenorish voice but he doesn't have the vocal quality for this vehicle. "Fella" is really a unique Broadway show and should not be produced by less than the finest talent, especially the lead.

In 1986 skipper Lee Stanley took seven inmates from Camp David Gonzales, the toughest youth camp in California, on a 10-day cruise--it took him four years to get the permission to do so--and then filmed it. The impact of the excursion on these troubled young men is deeply moving; even more so is the prologue, in which we find out how they are doing a year later. Thought-provoking material. (KTLA Monday at 8 p.m.)

Thank you for your article on the remarkable Ricky Jay ("Searching for Ricky Jay," by Max Jacobson, July 23). As it happens, I was the other act on the bill when Jay performed at McCabe's in Santa Monica. I recall that he was upset at opening for a singer-songwriter. At the time I thought, "Who is this arrogant character?" But we agreed to share the bill, and I had a chance to see him perform that evening. He truly was magical. He has devoted his life to his art, and I am glad to see him getting the recognition he clearly deserves.

A board member of the Garden Grove Symphony who is strongly opposed to abortion resigned last week after composer and performer James Lee Stanley said that a song he would perform with the orchestra over the weekend had been written out of "pro-choice" feelings, according to Dick Hain, the board president. The board member, Ray Romero, "resigned because of his deep convictions from a religious point of view," Hain said. "We are sad and will miss him."

In a remarkable program, "Good Cop . . . Bad Kid?" (Sunday at 7 p.m. on NBC, Channels 4, 36 and 39), filmmaker Lee Stanley documents the latest of his social experiments that thrust hard-core juvenile criminals into new and challenging situations to expand their horizons, and perhaps to turn their lives around.

"Gridiron Gang," a provocative, two-hour documentary on KTLA-TV Channel 5 at 8 tonight, spotlights an athletic program that is giving some hard-core juvenile offenders a chance for a new start in life. Directed by Lee Stanley and hosted by Louis Gossett Jr., the film follows convicted teen criminals and several coaches through a football training program that, in three weeks, is supposed to turn gangbangers, robbers, kidnapers and one murderer into a competitive football team.

Lee Stanley, a Westlake Village resident, believed that there was cause for hope when he created the Wings Foundation, a nonprofit organization that reaches out to incarcerated youth, helping them to shed their destructive tendencies and return to society. "I believe no matter what the background, no matter what the crime, there is a kid deep inside worth saving," he said. "Desperate Passage" first aired on television 10 years ago.
REAL ESTATE
November 5, 1989 | From the Associated Press
Style and practicality are two reasons often cited for building sun-space additions to a home, but many prefer another: let the sun shine in. From solariums and greenhouses to skylights, from additions of whole rooms to kitchen and bathroom remodeling, the common interests are more light and more living space.
