A report commissioned by the Beverly Hills Unified School District has found a number of financial and ethical improprieties related to a summer sports camp that was run by the high school principal - including his failure to report more than $40,000 in earnings. In addition, the review found that the principal, Carter Paysinger, used the camp's bank account as overdraft protection for a personal account and probably violated district conflict-of-interest and ethics rules. The inquiry also revealed that the camp brought in tens of thousands of dollars more in revenue than previously reported.

After years of watching their children trot happily off during the summer to chase soccer balls or practice gymnastics, parents can suddenly face a radically different landscape as their tot turns teen. "Soccer camp?" the newly blase 13-year-old may ask incredulously. Not cool, Dad. Don't ask me to make any more pine cone wreaths, either. And rest hour--forget it. It's also from this older age group that parents most often hear those dreaded words: "I'm bored."

Carter Paysinger, the principal of Beverly Hills High School, said Monday that he welcomes an independent review called by the Beverly Hills Unified School District into the for-profit summer sports camp he owns. The review was in response to an article in The Times last week that reported that the Beverly Hills Sports Academy, held on campus, is owned by Paysinger and operated by two school employees. Parents say they were led to believe that the academy was a mandatory school-sanctioned camp for athletes and that fees would help fund sports teams.

Sometimes it's a scent that takes me back -- cut grass on a dewy field, brownies in the oven, a powder-fresh uniform miraculously revived from the dead. Other times it's the weather. A sudden hail and I flash back to that soccer game at Bridgewater. Searing heat and I wonder how we survived Annapolis, Md., in July at the all-star lacrosse tournament.
