The Los Angeles City Council approved a tax-exempt bond agreement Wednesday that would cost the city nothing but would benefit Loyola High School. The approval allows the city to issue $30 million in tax-exempt bonds on behalf of the Catholic school, where Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa's son is enrolled. No city funds would be at risk, according to a city analysis of the deal, which gives Loyola better financing than would be available through the private sector.

Pablo Muñoz is no stranger to academic rigor. And don't expect him to shirk additional work. As many cheered sweeping changes to the SAT -- such as the optional essay -- the 15-year-old Loyola High School sophomore is likely not to skip that portion. "I would probably do the essay because I think it could give me a slight edge over test takers," he said. "I think it might be a gateway for students to shortchange themselves" if they don't write the essay. For Pablo, it all comes down to showing colleges he's a dedicated student.

Thank you very much for including Loyola High School's valedictorian in City Times ("Class of '93," July 4 and 11). We here at Loyola are most appreciative of the efforts you have made this year to include us in your section. I have enjoyed the articles and coverage in City Times. I want to congratulate you for highlighting so many of the positive things that occur here in the Mid-City and central parts of the city. THE REV. ROBERT T. WALSH principal, Loyola High School Balancing Coverage I think your section of the Los Angeles Times has been outstanding--one of the best things to have been stimulated by our disastrous riots last year.

High school sophomore Robert Quijano, balancing an armload of water bottles, warily approached a group of homeless people on Sunday under a downtown bridge strewn with trash. Walter Grant lived there, and so did a stern matriarch in a bright blue kimono known as Miss Kitty, who kept a close eye on Robert until he brightened with a cheery "Hi there." That meeting set the tone for the day's expedition to feed the homeless as part of a Loyola High School social justice program called Urban Plunge.

Seventeen inches long, approximately 4 pounds, brown eyes, brown hair. Why would -- how could -- someone toss this infant girl over a fence toward railroad tracks more than 50 feet below? It's a question than remains unanswered in Alhambra, where the body of the girl -- named Therese Rose by the Alhambra parish that adopted her in death -- was found in March. The incident has elicited anger, anguish and grief in the community, as well as some soul-searching.

MY SON NEIL is going to start high school in the fall, and I'm ready for my school-schlepping days to end. His older brother Jarrod, 17, has been able to get to and from school on his own since his first day of high school, and I hold out the same hope for Neil. Jarrod has mastered the city's convoluted mass transit system. A musician, Jarrod attends Los Angeles County High School for the Arts, a conservatory-style public school on the campus of Cal State L.A. east of downtown.

The Los Angeles Loyola volleyball team needed a leader, and C.J. Schellenberg knew it. After a tough loss to Manhattan Beach Mira Costa late in the season, Schellenberg pulled the team together for a talk. The Cubs had won consecutive Southern Section Division I titles, but Schellenberg was the only returning starter. With the playoffs about to begin, he feared his teammates lacked the confidence to succeed. "We talked about how nobody expected us to win the title this year," Schellenberg said.

With Christmas being the time for giving, Bennett Duval of Los Angeles Loyola offered his fellow students one of the best presents of all last month with the sacrifice he made for the cross-country team. Duval was a 6-foot-3, 160-pound sophomore volleyball player who went out for cross-country simply to get into shape. For two weeks in August, while training with the team in Mammoth, he finished last among the 18 runners every time, causing him to ask, "Why am I doing this?" Fast forward to Nov.

It's 7:15 on a Saturday morning, and Matt Appenfelder's eyes have finally cracked open, courtesy of the annoying beeping of his alarm clock. After a week of attending classes at Los Angeles Loyola High and a night of playing receiver and defensive back for the Cubs, Appenfelder rises as if he has the aches and pains of a 70-year-old. His legs, hamstrings and calf muscles are sore, he has bruises in other places, and he could use a couple of more hours of sleep.

Brothers Buchi and Chuma Awaji would have enjoyed being high school teammates, but instead they've been relegated to puffing up their chests and trading one-liners in an ongoing duel over who plays for the better basketball team, L.A. Loyola or L.A. Dorsey. "It goes back and forth," said Chuma, a 6-foot-3 senior guard at Dorsey (23-2). "We talk who's better and who can beat whom." Buchi, a 6-2 junior guard at Loyola (19-7), refuses to let his brother win any arguments.
