Former Poly High defensive back Richard Washington fingers the jagged scar under his chin where a metal plate holds his jaw together and recalls what he's been through in the last year. Last September, the University of Washington free safety suffered multiple injuries in an auto accident. Doctors said he might be left with a limp. Difficult as it was, Washington proved them wrong. He recovered in time to return to spring practice and will attempt to make the Huskies' traveling squad this fall.

Dave Meyers has come back to basketball at the same moment basketball was looking for him. He teaches the game, the way Coach Wooden did. For an hour a week the last four weeks at the Temecula Recreation Center, it's drills and more drills--the same ones from Meyers' salad days at UCLA. Meyers enjoys these Friday afternoons working with kids, some of whom are literally knee high. He can pass along knowledge in the sport he loves in a setting he loves.

Re "Rapper Gets Probation on Gun Charge," Aug. 22: Why wouldn't a felon singer on gangster rappers' CDs carry an "unmarked" firearm?
