In a place where humor is putting your chewed bubble gum on a utility infielder's cap, and refined humor is blowing a bubble and then putting it on his cap, the baseball clubhouse is something less than sophisticated when it comes to movies. If a player were to have an aching for "Citizen Kane," for instance, he wouldn't mention it for fear of having his rosebud whupped. Yankee pitcher Denny Neagle, long an observer of such phenomena, provided Seattle Post-Intelligencer columnist Jim Caple with his list of all-time clubhouse favorites.

While most public schools head back to basics, assign extra homework and focus on standardized test scores, a new charter school in San Juan Capistrano will discard just about every hot trend in education. In an era of concern over social promotion, Journey Charter School in Capistrano Unified School District will move children to tougher tasks when each is ready, not by age.

These have not been happy times for public schools. State revenue cutbacks in recent years have bit deeply into programs and morale at many school districts across the state. San Juan Elementary School has taken the financial hits along with the rest of them. But instead of complaining, Principal Michael Hoy took action. His fund-raising efforts and innovative programs were rewarded by a grateful community last week with the 1993 John Williams Public Service Award.

Some San Juan Elementary School parents believe their school has been "neglected" for too long for it to have more students foisted upon it. At a Capistrano Unified School Board meeting Monday night, two parents asked trustees to scrap plans allowing a new charter school to operate there. The parents railed against the crowding and noise complications they say could occur if 60 students from Journey Charter School, the district's first charter program, inhabit the campus.

What began as a construction project turned into an impromptu history lesson when workers unearthed an assortment of Indian artifacts on the playground of San Juan Elementary School. An assortment of 50 to 75 items, including shells, tile, fragments of bone and stone tools, were dug out of 20 holes about four feet deep, said Nick Magalousis, director of the nearby Mission San Juan Capistrano Museum, who was called to the school to help.

School officials Wednesday were still unable to determine the source of noxious fumes that prompted an elementary school to evacuate 107 students after some children and teachers suffered headaches and itching eyes and became nauseated. Dan Crawford, director of maintenance and operations for the Capistrano Unified School District, said an inspection crew from Southern California Gas Co. returned to San Juan Elementary School on Wednesday to check for any potential leaks in the facility's main gas line.

San Juan Elementary School will use a $6,000 grant from Pacific Bell Corp. to develop bilingual program materials for teaching science and increasing student literacy, school officials said. "In addition to exposing students to (advanced computer) software, this project will incorporate interactive laser disc instructional materials in science for fourth-, fifth- and sixth-grade students, many of whom have limited English proficiency," said Michael Hoy, coordinator of staff development and technology for the Capistrano Unified School District.

A custodian at San Juan Elementary School suffered smoke inhalation in a brief fire Thursday morning that resulted from an exploding electrical transformer outside the school. Kathleen Cha, a spokeswoman for the County Fire Department, said the custodian, who was not identified, was treated and released at Mission Hospital Regional Medical Center in Mission Viego. Cha said the transformer, which was on a pole in front of the school at 26891 Spring St., exploded about 8 a.m. "It started a very small fire on the pole and in some grass at the base of the pole," Cha said.

For San Juan Elementary School Principal Michael Hoy, the equation 7x3=21 will have special significance for his students in the coming years. Recently, the school was one of 138 in the state to receive a five-year state grant to restructure its educational program by expanding efforts already under way in creating a so-called tri-literacy program for students in English, Spanish and technology. "Our efforts will emphasize a new equation for 21st-Century learners," Hoy said.
