Football isn't the easiest sport to play for a teenager who weighs 155 pounds and is being chased by 250-pounders while running through holes created by 300-pounders. Robert Lewis, a senior at South East High in South Gate, welcomes the challenge. "I feel I can do anything," he said. "When I'm on the field, I believe I'm untouchable. " As a running back, receiver, kickoff returner and punt returner, the versatile Lewis is ready to take over for Crenshaw's De'Anthony Thomas as the most dangerous offensive threat in the City Section this fall.

As the found-footage horror genre reaches the please-lose-it-again point, "Alien Abduction" arrives to remind us how tedious the camping trip set-up has become as well. Taking the notorious "ghost lights" above North Carolina's Brown Mountain as its inspiration, the movie purports to be Air Force-leaked footage from an 11-year-old autistic boy's camcorder of how things went horribly wrong for his family on a weekend nature outing. (Considering some of the eye-level shots, he must be a very tall 11-year-old.)

Am I supposed to feel sorry for Robert Lewis, who spent four days in jail for assuming that he was too good to answer a summons to appear in court (March 8)? Lewis admits that he has known for eight years that he was required to license his dog, but he was "too busy." This scofflaw and his daughter also think it is perfectly all right to allow their dog to roam free "twice a week to chase cats." My cat was killed recently in her own back yard by two marauding dogs. Lewis is completely lacking in responsibility to his pet as well as to his neighbors.

In the horse-racing world, it is still a lifetime until the May 3 Kentucky Derby. The top horses get hurt. They get ill. They suddenly, for no apparent reason, start turning in the training times of a plow horse. The favorites of mid-February become the forgottens of Triple Crown season. So when Gary Stevens rode Candy Boy to an impressive victory Saturday at Santa Anita, in the $200,000 Grade II Robert B. Lewis Stakes, both Stevens and trainer John Sadler did their best to couch their enthusiasm.

As the Los Angeles County State Central Committee representative, I protest the uninformed, misinformation about the American Independent Party of California (letter, July 30). Yes, the AIP registration is up, but not because people are wrong or stupid. It is up because people generally agree with our platform on the deficit, on the economy, but most of all on who controls our government, we the people or unresponsive incumbents. Many (myself included) AIPs are saddened by Ross Perot's withdraw as an active candidate, we will continue working to build the volunteer corps and create a creditable alternative to unresponsible incumbent politics that comes at people, not from them.

 There are plenty of former high school standouts from Los Angeles who will be seeing lots of playing time this season at Washington State. Former Venice All-City players Gabe Marks (receiver) and Teondray Caldwell (running back) are expected to start. Robert Lewis (South East) and River Cracraft (Santa Margarita) are receivers set to make an impact. Freshman Daquawn Brown (Dorsey) could be playing immediately at cornerback. Kache Palacio (Gardena Serra) and Jeremiah Allison (Dorsey)

It's time for Compton to show if it's ready to take charge of the Moore League race with a showdown road game against Long Beach Poly on Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. Compton has been playing much better of late, almost knocking off Loyola a couple weeks ago. Robert Lewis has been the key player in the last two league games. Poly is very strong defensively and still has weapons, such as improving center Jordan Dallas. In the Trinity League, top-ranked and unbeaten Santa Ana Mater Dei hosts St. John Bosco.

Robert Lewis could have jogged to his home in Watts in the amount of time he logged last summer calling family and friends from the telephone outside his Occidental College dormitory room. Homesickness is not uncommon among college freshmen, but Lewis' case was unusually severe. He had discovered that street maps can be deceptive. To him, the chasm dividing Occidental and his home was a lot wider than 25 miles.

It's barely February, so Bob Baffert isn't rushing to anoint Flashback as his top Kentucky Derby contender. The gray colt made a solid case for himself, though, winning the $196,000 Robert B. Lewis Stakes by 61/4 lengths at Santa Anita in his 3-year-old debut Saturday. Baffert had a good day overall, with his 2-1 favorite Guilt Trip winning the $200,250 Strub Stakes by 11/2 lengths for owners Gary and Mary West, who also own Flashback. Baffert also won the first race on the card.

Saturday at Santa Anita brought the expected bright sunshine, impressive scenery and nice crowd. It also brought the completely unexpected. In the big race of the day, the Grade II Robert B. Lewis Stakes for 3-year-olds, the horse with the longest odds on the boards, I'll Have Another at 43-1, stole the day. If you happened to punch the No. 4 on the betting machine or give the clerk at the window that number by mistake, you would have collected...

One of the best racing days of the Santa Anita meeting is set for Saturday, when three Grade II stakes will be on the 10-race card. They include the $200,000 Robert B. Lewis Stakes, a race for 3-year-olds at 1 1/16 miles and a tuneup for the Santa Anita Derby. Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert, looking to showcase a couple of his Kentucky Derby prospects, will send out Liaison, winner of the Grade I CashCall Futurity in December, and Sky Kingdom, a winner by 4 1/2 lengths in an allowance race at 1 1/16 miles Jan. 12. Liaison's primary competition could come from the improving Rousing Sermon, who has twice finished second to Liaison while rallying from way back.

It's the midway point in the high school football regular season, which means it's time to see who's living up to preseason hype. Quarterback: Jonathan Jerozal of Canyon Country Canyon hasn't faced the toughest of foes, but all he can do is perform to the best of his ability, and that's what he has done, passing for 1,259 yards and 16 touchdowns with two interceptions for the 5-0 Cowboys. Juniors Johnny Stanton of Santa Margarita and Justin Moore of Westlake Village Westlake are running the ball as well as any quarterbacks around.

Robert Lewis uses the nickname Bad Man. He has fought Rico Valasquez three times this year, and perhaps it's time to change the nickname to Bad Plan. Valasquez retained his California lightweight title Friday night at the Country Club in Reseda, stopping Lewis at 1:38 of the fifth round. He has defended the championship just twice since winning it early this year. Both defenses have been against Lewis.

Capping a bitter and expensive campaign, Assemblyman Frank Hill (R-Whittier) appeared headed for victory Tuesday in a special election for a state Senate seat in one of California's most Republican districts. Hill held a 3-to-1 lead over his Democratic opponent in early returns from more than 20,000 absentee ballots. The four-term legislator was seeking to replace state Sen. William Campbell (R-Hacienda Heights), who resigned in December after serving more than 20 years in the Legislature.

The usual unpredictability and disintegration of favorites in the Triple Crown season has begun. Three leading candidates for fame and fortune May 7 at Churchill Downs went to three different posts in three different races Saturday, and only one emerged with reputation intact. On another postcard day at Santa Anita, in front of 8,476, trainer Steve Asmussen's Tapizar took on a field of six also-mentions and went to the gate in the $250,000 Robert Lewis Stakes with a startling endorsement from the betting public.
