Their heads bowed, two teenagers accused of shooting rampages at local high schools appeared at separate hearings Monday, where one pleaded not guilty and attorneys for the other vowed to fight a law requiring that he be tried as an adult.

Caution was as much a part of Brian Zuckor's life as bikes and skateboards and silly antics with friends. The 14-year-old loved performing stunts on his bike, but he wore a helmet. He loved being with friends, but for five years he did not attend public school; his parents chose instead to teach him at home--and keep him safe. But a year ago, persuaded by her son's pleas, Michelle Zuckor enrolled Brian in Santana High School. The Zuckors gave the boy a cell phone. A safety precaution.

The father of Charles Andrew Williams said Friday that he is still looking for answers to explain the March 5 campus shooting that traumatized the town of Santee. Known to family and friends as Andy, the 15-year-old boy is accused of killing Randy Gordon, 17, and Bryan Zuckor, 14, and wounding 13 other students and staff members at Santana High School in a shooting that focused international attention on the San Diego suburb.

There were reminders: Dried blood on a sidewalk. A chair where a friend once sat. A bathroom turned into a killing place. But mostly what remains is emotion. Sadness collides with anger. Grief encounters a desire for revenge. A sense of hope battles despair. For Santana High School students returning to school Wednesday for the first time since a bloody rampage left two dead and 13 injured, this posed a dilemma.

Carrying a black revolver and wearing an enigmatic smile, a diminutive 15-year-old boy opened fire on the campus of a suburban San Diego high school Monday morning, killing two students and injuring 13 other people. Authorities said Charles Andrew Williams was fulfilling months of threats that most of his friends at Santana High School thought were a joke. Williams terrorized the school, firing randomly inside a bathroom and around a campus courtyard, authorities said.

My younger daughter wore the purple and gold, reveling in the spirit of this small-town perfect world, and although it has been more than three years since she moved on to college, some of her best memories came as a basketball player at Santana High School. But Monday, a yellow line of police tape identified Santana High School as a landmark to tragedy, my own daughter standing on a street named "Carefree," of all things, saying never again will she be able to walk on this campus.

The bloody tableau facing San Diego County Sheriff's Deputy Howard Kluge was the stuff of nightmares. The bodies of children lay strewn like discarded toys. Their moans filled the air--cries of pain, pleas for help. Kluge's conscience tugged hard, but he had no choice. He couldn't help. Not yet. Not until he got to the gunman who caused the mayhem. So he ignored the cries. "It was the most helpless feeling in my life," he said.

It was a fleeting second that lasted forever: the instant that campus security guard Peter Ruiz made eye contact with the pint-sized gunman who had allegedly just fired three bullets into his back and was to shoot 14 other people before surrendering to sheriff's deputies. Immobilized by a bullet wedged in his pelvic bone, Ruiz lay on the ground waving one arm at the young man--"Like, hey, hey. It's time to stop."

Periodic droughts are a fact of life in California and, whether or not the recent rains are a signal that the current one is over (and the water experts say it isn't), one drought-related innovation is here to stay: higher water prices that will only get higher. So, drought or no drought, the need to save water is rapidly becoming an economic one. But, even at this late date, many North County homeowners hesitate to install micro-irrigation (drip) systems in their gardens.
