With patience, ingenuity and a lot of duct tape, four South El Monte High School students built and raced a solar-powered bicycle that beat 23 other sun-worshiping schools in a national bike race, their teacher said. Three of the students transformed an ordinary race bike into a math/science project that took first place in the high school division and third in an all-ages competition at last month's Solar Bikerace USA, in Neosho, Mo.

A misdemeanor bookmaking charge was dismissed against a South El Monte High School truant officer who ran a football pool. Robert Bigler, 49, pleaded no contest in September and was facing up to a year in jail. But prosecutors allowed him to withdraw his plea and let the case be dismissed Friday, authorities said. Investigators had believed Bigler, of Temple City, was involved in professional bookmaking at the time of his arrest in February.

DON CHETO is in the final stretch of his six-hour morning radio show, and you can feel another rant coming on. The roly-poly old man with the white hair and bushy mustache is a cranky country character who came here from a small town in Mexico years ago and hasn't stopped railing against the world ever since. On this particular morning, he's confronting his young on-air partner, Marlene Quinto, on one of his many pet peeves -- how women's liberation has ruined the lives of men.

In myriad California schools, thousands of children wore jackets in chilly, dim classrooms, libraries and gymnasiums.

"You gotta eat, right?" said Long Tran, 16, as he chomped on a Subway sandwich bought from a cart at Hawthorne High School.
