On game nights not too long ago, the blue and white of the Titans would blanket the San Marino High bleachers. The ritual often extended into the playoffs, once stretching into 14 weeks as the team reached the championship game. "It's what you did Friday nights," said D.R. Moreland, the school's rookie coach who played Titan football from 1987 to 1991. "The whole town shut down."

Six high school students from Celaya, Mexico, are visiting the San Gabriel Valley area until Aug. 1 as part of an exchange program. In August, six local high school students will visit Celaya. The exchange, organized by the Chinese American Parents & Teachers Assn. of Southern California, is aimed at easing ethnic tensions at local high schools and broadening students' views of other cultures.

The paved yard at San Gabriel High School--a place usually echoing between classes with the noisy chatter of busy students--was eerily silent Monday. A floral memorial, bedecked with a black ribbon, stood alone at the center of the 56-acre campus. Flags flew at half-staff, a few hundred yards from where a powerful onrush of flood water in the Alhambra Wash swept three students to their deaths last week. Monday was a day of attempting to come to terms with those deaths.

The expansion of San Gabriel High School (and other high schools in the Alhambra district) is necessary because of growth, which qualifies for state funding and will not require local bond support. If San Gabriel unifies, however, the new high school will have to be built entirely by local property owners. The committee says this will cost only $200 a year. What they do not make clear is that the number is $200 per $100,000 assessment. Sell a north San Gabriel house today (or add onto yours)

Ruben Ortega of Alhambra, a former San Gabriel High School student, has received the Governor's 1988 Young American Medal for Bravery Award. On April 26, 1988, after a San Gabriel High School student armed with an assault rifle entered a classroom and held 70 students hostage, Ortega was able to get close enough to grab the rifle and wrestle the suspect to the floor. The award program was established in 1950 to honor people 18 or younger who distinguish themselves by acts of bravery or demonstration of outstanding character and service.

Some San Gabriel High School students have the same lunch hours as Mark Keppel students. So it could be anyone committing these crimes. As Lt. Jim Burks said: "Here goes three girls. Do they live here or what? Are they going to see their boyfriends? Or going to steal?" How can Lt. Jim Burks make such a comment? It's just his assumptions.

It's lunchtime at San Gabriel High School. Here are the Asian students, clustered on the grassy knoll. Over there are the Latino students, gathered around the cafeteria tables. There's little inter-ethnic mingling on this 3,232-student campus, where most of the student body is evenly split between Asians and Latinos. "I say 'hi' to them, but we stay to ourselves, that's just the way it is," says Angelica, 16, a Mexican-American clad in the teen grunge of flannel shirt and torn jeans.

Antonia Medrano mourned her children Friday with mementos of two lives cut short: the gold chain her 17-year-old son wore and the flowing white gown that her 14-year-old daughter bought for the quinceanera she will never celebrate. "My son and daughter are gone," Medrano said as more than a dozen relatives and friends gathered in her Rosemead home to remember the teenagers, Raul Nahle and Dulce Natalia Castruita. "They were such good children."

The Sierra Madre Search and Rescue Team on Thursday found the body of a missing San Gabriel Valley teenager swept away Wednesday by floods raging through the Alhambra Wash.

Los Angeles sheriff's Deputy Bob Killeen said searchers, including two divers and a helicopter crew, found the body about 12:15 p.m.

As a 29-year subscriber to the Los Angeles Times, I was appalled and disappointed to read in the San Gabriel Valley section your headline stating "Election Creating School District Is Invalidated" (March 24). Your headline is especially offensive in that it creates a grossly inaccurate impression that some sort of final conclusion, adverse to San Gabriel Unified School District (SGUSD), has been reached. Unfortunately, many people only scan headlines--the juicier the better--without reading the article's contents.

A $29.9-million bond issue that would have funded construction of a new high school in San Gabriel was defeated in Tuesday's election, but San Gabriel Unified School District Supt. Gary E. Goodson said the high school will open this fall anyway, in temporary facilities. The bond measure fell far short of the two-thirds majority it needed to pass. Despite vigorous efforts by bond supporters to rally support among San Gabriel voters, the measure did not garner even a simple majority.

I am a seventh-grade student at Jefferson Intermediate School and will be in the second class to go through Gabrielino High School. Myself and other students are ashamed of the members of our community who have been campaigning against the bond measure. Whether you like it or not, or whether the bond passes or not, there is going to be a high school. Don't you want it to be the best it can be? What have we done that gives you the right to take away our hope and future? Someone before you paid for your education.

A Los Angeles Superior Court judge Tuesday tentatively ruled invalid a 1992 vote approving the creation of the San Gabriel Unified School District. Judge Diane L. Wayne tentatively ruled Tuesday that voters in the Alhambra High School District who live in the city of Alhambra should have been allowed to vote along with residents in the city of San Gabriel in the April, 1992, election that pulled San Gabriel out of the district.

January 31, 1994 | SANDY CHANG, Sandy Chang, 17, is a senior at San Gabriel High School.
When I first found out that English teacher Joe Cornish has AIDS, I felt as if an oppressive chunk of lead suddenly dislodged my heart. Here is somebody I respect as a teacher, as an adviser and as a friend who now has AIDS. Nothing I have ever learned about the illness could have prepared me for this shock. For the next few days, I felt upset that my friend's life would be cruelly cut short. But as the weeks drifted by, my feelings soon turned into frustration.
