A judge ruled Monday that a teenager can be tried as an adult on charges involving exploding pens that injured three people last year. Brian Rocha of El Monte was 17 when he was arrested and charged with nine felonies for the blasts, which authorities allege were done as revenge for his being expelled from Rosemead High School. Authorities said Rocha booby-trapped pens to detonate when uncapped. The victims found them on the ground in or near Rosemead and El Monte high schools.

Re: "Students Get Lesson in Bias at This Camp," (Times, Dec. 3). Project Brotherhood/Sisterhood should be commended for sponsoring this three-day seminar on combatting racism! The problem of racism has dramatically risen with the influx of Asian and Hispanic immigrants into the San Gabriel Valley in the last 10 years. Young peoples' attitudes toward race are strongly influenced by their parents. Many immigrants coming into our American "melting pot" have never had much opportunity to interact with those of different ethnic backgrounds.

Re "Girl Wrestlers Gain Ground," Jan. 10: Any girl who participates against boys in wrestling is a winner in my eyes. This is an aggressive, full-contact sport, much like a human chess game, where skill, agility, motivation and perseverance determine the outcome. It builds self-esteem and promotes a "can-do" attitude. As a scrawny sophomore at Rosemead High School in 1968, I wrestled my way to the league championship by pinning four opposing varsity team captains, all of them seniors who towered over my 5-foot, 2-inch frame.
