Cookie Koomprapun boarded the Woodman Avenue onramp to the Ventura Freeway one recent afternoon just as traffic slowed to a crawl--or, more accurately, a waddle. Ahead of her, a driver had jumped out of his pickup truck and managed to bring everyone to a stop so that a mother duck and her brood could march across to safety. "That's right," confirmed KFWB traffic reporter Robin Johnson. "We heard about it--a mother and her 12 ducklings. We get duck reports every once in a while on the Ventura.

Memorial services were held Saturday for Steve Morris, the longtime San Pedro High School teacher and coach who died of a heart attack last week only minutes after jogging with members of the girls soccer team. The death Wednesday afternoon of Morris, 51, stunned his colleagues and the campus where he had taught science since 1968. "It was a complete shock," said Chris Nagle, chairman of the school's science department. "He had just run two laps, sat down on the bench and just collapsed."

The "Fanny Pack Bandit" was something of a legend on the Westside, suspected of robbing nearly 10 banks from Manhattan Beach to Santa Monica. But authorities said his nine-month crime spree went up in smoke over the weekend when his escape route from another robbery happened to pass two FBI agents lunching at the neighborhood Souplantation restaurant.

Twenty years ago this month, a small, hip-hop infused coming-of-age drama set in South-Central Los Angeles called "Boyz N the Hood" was causing extreme reactions from two very different audiences. Written and directed by John Singleton, a brash 23-year-old just months out of USC's film school, and made for a mere $5.7 million, largely with an unknown and untested cast of African American actors, the film had just played May's prestigious Cannes Film Festival where it received a 20-minute standing ovation.

Indeed, the careers of Judge James C. Mahan, 62, and his friend George C.

Don't expect to see Sammy Hagar scheduling a duet with George Michael anytime soon. The Van Halen crooner recently surveyed Michael thusly: "The guy looks like he walked into a beauty parlor and said, 'Make me look rough and tough like I hadn't slept for four days--but I have really.' ". . . Just how short was that Mike Tyson-Michael Spinks title fight? KRTH-FM morning deejay Steve Morris offered the most imaginative illustration of the spectacle's stunning brevity.

KRTH-FM staffers were still shaking their heads Thursday over the overwhelming response to their little April Fool's prank. As part of an elaborate 3 1/2-hour hoax, disc jockey Steve Morris told listeners that all Los Angeles freeways would be closed for a month starting April 8 for major repairs. "We wanted to do something special for April Fool's day," explained KRTH program director Phil Hall. "We thought that this was the most ludicrous thing we could say--so crazy that nobody would believe."
