Chaminade COACH: Rich Lawson, 2nd year LAST SEASON: 11-3; 1st in league, 6-0 PLAYERS TO WATCH: In their first year under Lawson, last season's Times All-Valley Coach of the Year, the Eagles came within one play of a conference championship, losing to Woodbridge, 13-10, on a last-second pass. Continued success will be more difficult, considering Chaminade has only 28 players. "But we've got 28 good kids," Lawson said. "We're going to be the Great 28."

By honoring Harvard-Westlake School for excellence in education, however deserved, at the Economic Alliance of the San Fernando Valley's dinner ("Business, Political Leaders Pack Valley Gala," June 25), an opportunity was missed to honor fine public schools. The San Fernando Valley's economic well-being, not to mention that of the whole city, as well as the health of our democracy, depends on the success of its public schools. The focus on a private school sends an implicit symbolic message that private schools are preferable.

Citing an alarming level of gang violence in Los Angeles, Mayor James K. Hahn announced Monday additional funding that will nearly double the budget for seven gang-intervention programs across the city, from Pacoima to Watts. The city will provide $1 million to the programs, which now receive $1.28 million to send intervention teams into the streets. The teams broker peace among rival gangs, work with individuals to address their anger and mentor troubled youth.

Gov. Pete Wilson has signed a bill providing $100,000 for the California State University system to study a Pacoima-based anti-gang program that seeks to prevent violence through sports tournaments and counseling. Researchers will spend the next 15 months determining the effectiveness of Communities In Schools of San Fernando Valley), a nonprofit program that began with a local gang truce five years ago.
