Were he to preach about it, Msgr. Louis Gutierrez might have told his parishioners at St. Paul's Catholic Church not to be sad for the good man cut down by violence--for he is with God--but to lament a society where murder has become routine. He would have told them that prayer is not enough in times such as these, that tears should not become indulgence, that anger must be channeled to good. But others will have to tell this parable now.

A 15-year-old boy killed his father, then set the house, on fire because he was afraid his father would find out he was failing some classes, prosecutors said. Ryan Watts was charged as an adult Friday in the slaying of his father, John E. Bruner, 50, who was initially believed to have died in the fire that engulfed the home, which he shared with his son, earlier this week.

I want to take this opportunity to thank you for the nice article by Massie Ritsch and photo by Anne Cusack about the Santa Clara High School Saints Football Team that appeared on Sept. 15. I was so pleased to see an article that helped to boost the spirit of the team and coaches. I have been a teacher at Santa Clara High School since 1979, and all of my children are graduates of the school, one of those being the officer in your picture. Through my years of teaching I have found such joy in working with teenagers, the vast majority of whom are wonderful people who go on to become actively involved in their communities in positive ways.

Hoping to get across an anti-drunk-driving message, Ventura County police officers are preparing to spend their Friday nights at football games and their weekday afternoons on the field practicing. The program, called "Cops and Jocks," aims to establish a good rapport between officers and football players and encourage the teen-agers to do less drinking after games.

After having read several scathing articles in Ventura County newspapers about Santa Clara's Coach Lou Cvijanovich, it was refreshing to read the March 2 article in The Times' Ventura County section. The article was highly informative about Coach C's past history. This article was the epitome of what a coach should be to high school sports, to the past and present players, and to the parents of players and students at Santa Clara High School. If the people who have so quickly denounced Coach C publicly would take the time to read the article in The Times, we are sure that in the sense of fairness a re-evaluation may take place.

The Santa Clara High School boys' basketball program has been placed on probation for one year by the Southern Section's Executive Committee because the team withdrew from the Coast Christmas tournament last December at Estancia High School. Santa Clara will not be allowed to participate in any regular-season tournaments in the 1989-90 season.

Santa Clara High School basketball coach Lou Cvijanovich is a local legend. For 41 years, he has led the Saints basketball teams to win after win. Parents, teachers and students know him simply as "Coach C." They even named a gymnasium in his honor. His reputation is so great that some people believe it has held the school together during a decade of declining enrollment and that Coach C. is the reason many parents send their students to Santa Clara.

Lou Cvijanovich, the legendary boys' basketball coach at Santa Clara High, has resigned after 41 seasons at the school. Cvijanovich, who holds the state record with 829 career victories and guided the Saints to 15 Southern Section championships, cited a multitude of reasons for his decision, including health concerns and a difference in philosophy with school administrators and players' parents.

The winningest boys' basketball coach in California history stood on the court with a lei of red carnations around his neck and tears of joy in his eyes as he locked his arms around every player he could touch. Lou Cvijanovich, the 72-year-old Santa Clara High coach, let everyone know that the 829th victory of his glorious 41-year career was more than special. "I was emotional because I love them so much," he said. "These kids have given me their lives."

Santa Clara High isn't the only team setting state boys' basketball tournament records. Modesto Calvary Temple, the Saints' opponent in the state Division V final, set a Northern Regional championship-game record for points by a team in a 98-81 victory over Hoopa Valley last Saturday. Santa Clara accomplished a similar feat in a 93-55 victory over El Cajon Christian, setting a Southern Regional championship-game record for points by a team.

You run a photograph of former football coach Larry Lawrence and a few "glory days" alumni from Santa Clara High School--all of whom are now or have been coaches at St. Bonaventure. I believe the photo was even taken at St. Bonaventure. You outdid yourself. If these alumni were to help Santa Clara athletes, the sports programs at their former school might improve. JOANNE KINCAID Oxnard Your story said Maria Sanchez was "brushed off" by Santa Clara administrators when she requested a meeting with them.

Many parents find that state-run schools are not doing the job, so children are sent instead to church-run schools. It is felt that church schools better educate children, as well as teach respect for others, self-discipline, morality as well as religion. The parents have to pay twice for schools--both for the school they want as well as for the state-run school they don't want. Because the religious aspect of private education prevents state funds from being used, any school expenses that exceed tuition fees must be met in other ways.

At 5 feet 8 inches and 115 pounds, Aaron Sharp of Santa Clara High might be the smallest athlete competing in the state track and field championships at Cerritos College on Saturday. But there is no questioning Sharp's heart. That was evident in the Southern Section Masters Meet at Cerritos last Friday when the Saint senior finished second in the boys' 3,200 meters with a career-best of 9:12.06.

The Frontier League boys' basketball schedule opens Friday, but aficionados of the circuit had best circle Jan. 24 and Feb. 14, the dates defending league champion Santa Clara plays Moorpark, last season's runner-up. Those meetings, between the two teams considered the league's likely title contenders, almost certainly will decide whether the title remains in Oxnard. Santa Paula could also challenge for the championship. Santa Clara (7-4) returns only one starter from a team that finished 22-5.
