So girls just want to have fun, huh? Sarah Phelps knows better, but there are times when a girl has to let her hair down, as she playfully demonstrated last week at Palmdale High's graduation exercises. Anyone expecting the class valedictorian to deliver a by-the-book farewell address was in for a surprise. During her short speech, Phelps broke tradition by poking fun at everything from school rules to her classmates, who punctuated the stand-up routine with whoops of approval.

As pep talks go, it was short and simple. But for effect, one would be hard-pressed to beat what Palmdale Coach Steve Wilson said to Kadrina Coffee, Monique Nolan and Natasha Robinson prior to the 400-meter dash in Thursday's Golden League track meet between the Falcons and visiting Littlerock. Palmdale trailed by four points early in the meet after Littlerock's Cheree Hicks upset the Falcons' Kristi Rose in the discus.

What with all the brouhaha "Slumdog Millionaire" has stirred up -- the denigration of India, 0,4412918.story, the whole notion of "poverty porn" -- it's good to get back to basics. "Oliver Twist" premieres Sunday night on "Masterpiece Classic," and who wouldn't give their eye teeth and an autographed copy of "Barnaby Rudge" to find out what Charles Dickens would have to say about the term "poverty porn"? Since, if such a thing exists, he invented it.

The trouble with attempting to adapt any novel by Charles Dickens into a three-hour miniseries (a mini miniseries?) is that even the best, cleverest screenwriter will be forced to boil the story down to its essential plot. And though Dickens did not shirk on plot, deliriously crisscrossing fistfuls of them as if each book were an unending game of cat's cradle, action is not what defined his work. God, they say, is in the details, and so is Charles Dickens, in the evocation of place, the palpable rise of mood and, most important, the creation of characters so freighted with eccentricity as to be unbelievable but so finely drawn that they live and breathe nonetheless.

Bill Whiting, who led the Chatsworth High boys' basketball team to an undefeated Northwest Valley Conference record in his first season as coach, will not return next season. Junior guard Jerome Joseph said Whiting met privately with Joseph last week to inform him of his resignation. "It wasn't a total surprise. I had a feeling it might happen," Joseph said. Whiting, an off-campus coach, replaced Sandy Greentree, who resigned after the 1994 season.

Mike Judge and Don Hertzfeldt's "The Animation Show 2005," a traveling omnibus of international films, makes its way to town this week displaying a dizzying array of visual treats. A dozen shorts ranging in length from 25 seconds to 15 minutes combine to form a fairly comprehensive vision of contemporary animation beyond that produced by Pixar, Disney, Fox, Nickelodeon and DreamWorks.

Hurdler Jason Medearis of Hart High took advantage of strong winds and distance runner Kim Mortensen of Thousand Oaks overcame them to post top qualifying marks in the Southern Section Division I track and field preliminaries Saturday at Veterans Memorial Stadium. Medearis clocked a wind-aided 13.64 seconds to win his heat of the 110-meter high hurdles by nearly a second over runner-up Levar Castillo of Lynwood (14.59). Medearis' time was well under his season-best of 14.

Bobby Shriver, who walks fast and talks faster, is pacing the largely abandoned grounds of the Veterans Administration above Wilshire Boulevard. The Santa Monica City Council member has just led me through a cluster of mostly empty buildings toward the back of the property, where it abuts Brentwood, and something is bothering him. "Twenty years," he says. "Twenty years! Homeless people have been sleeping on the beach and on skid row, and they're veterans."
