This school year, for the first time, Loara High School can boast that all of its students have access to cutting-edge computer technology. A 1997 state legislative bill allocating $500 million to bring technology into California schools made the funding available. But Robert Torres, a fourth-year computer science teacher, made the project happen. "I don't think we would have gotten this far so quickly without his help. He's absolutely tireless," said Assistant Principal Marsha Wagner.

The year was 1961, and a bright, young, but out-of-work football coach looking for a job and some career advice drove past the orange groves to see Coach Clare VanHoorebeke at Anaheim High School. To the young man's way of thinking, VanHoorebeke was the man to see. VanHoorebeke was on his way to winning an Orange County-record 190 games (he lost 49 and tied 10) in 23 seasons at Anaheim.

Upon reading about the predicament that the Loara High School Kiwanis Bowl team has in raising funds to attend a national competition ("Money Is Quiz Team's Big Question," April 6) and then reading about the problem that Disneyland has in trying to give free tickets to Anaheim city officials ("Free Tickets Not Meant to Buy Influence, Disney Insists," April 11), an obvious solution emerges. Since Disneyland is so eager to support the community, and Loara High School is in Anaheim, and since the Loara students can legally accept donations and are likely in more need than the Anaheim city officials, Disneyland can reallocate the funds designated for "gifts" to city officials to the Loara High School Kiwanis Bowl team.
