In the Locals Only Department, Santa Barbara's Toad the Wet Sprocket is the only local band to be signed to a major record deal. Within the past six months, the four former San Marcos High School pals have released a pair of albums on Columbia and have finished their third tour opening for the likes of Michael Penn and The B-52s, among others. With a pair of gigs set for The Carnaval Club in Santa Barbara next Tuesday and Wednesday, it will be a homecoming of sorts for the youthful locals.

Another year, another high school golf record broken. Santa Barbara San Marcos set a Southern Section record when it shot a team total 359 to win the section title Thursday at the PGA of Southern California Golf Club in Calimesa. The one-under-par total is five strokes better than the previous section record set by San Marcos in 1981. Junior Tyler Ley shot five-under 67 to lead the Royals. This marked the third consecutive year that a prep golf record has been broken.

Saticoy Country Club played rough, so three Orange County teams played rougher. Servite, Santa Margarita and University took second, third and fourth, behind champion Santa Barbara San Marcos in the Southern Section team golf championships Monday in Ventura County. But Saticoy, with its tight, sloping fairways and undulating greens, was the real winner.

An insurance company's refusal to provide coverage for San Marcos High School's use of a cadaver may have eliminated a teacher's plans to use the body as an instructional aide, school officials said Wednesday. Teacher Jan Mongoven, hoping to enhance what his students learn from textbooks by giving them a "hands-on" experience, had planned to obtain a cadaver from the UC San Diego Medical School for use in his advanced physiology courses.

Driving into San Marcos from San Diego is like taking a wrong turn in Surf City and ending up in the Land of Oz. You leave the multi-laned madness of Interstate 5 and travel a two-lane road, past flower fields, fruit stands and through an occasional traffic light.

In 15 years of coaching baseball at San Marcos High School, Ron Layton said he had never seen anything like Robert Wurster's home run. If it had just cleared the fence in left-center field, 325 feet from home plate, Layton would not have been so impressed. But Wurster's shot in the third inning was still going when it hit some telephone wires that are about 50 feet above the top of the 7-foot wall. "That's a poke," Layton said. "I've never seen anyone hit the telephone wires before."

They don't call it commencement "exercises" for nothing. Just ask the 543 eighth-graders who gathered on the lawn at San Marcos Junior High Wednesday. Just 24 hours before, as the afternoon sun beat down on 13 rows of folding chairs on the school's well-kept lawn, Principal Susan Maki had led the students in a series of drills--all part of a good-natured attempt to make Wednesday's rite of passage as graceful as possible.

One week after the Southern Section forced a soccer playoff game between Santa Barbara San Marcos and Long Beach Millikan to be replayed because of an apparent conflict of interest, some questions remain unanswered. Why was this 3-A Division second-round game first officiated by a member of the Millikan faculty? Was it coincidence that two San Marcos players and an assistant coach were thrown out of the first game, which Millikan won?

The 15-year-old girl, sitting in a car in the high school parking lot, was caught red-handed by the principal: She had a mirror, a razor blade and tiny plastic bag--accessories that telegraphed the use of drugs. When Carmen Martinez arrived at the school a few minutes later, the girl, dressed in a pullover shirt, pedal pushers and pumps, was sobbing uncontrollably in the principal's office. "I don't want to go to jail," she gasped almost incoherently between sobs.
