Mireille Miller-Young, a feminist studies professor at UC Santa Barbara, has been charged with battery, vandalism and theft after she allegedly stole and destroyed the sign of an antiabortion protester on campus and then pushed and scratched the 16-year-old when she tried to grab her sign back. It looks like an open-and-shut case. Miller-Young told a police officer who interviewed her after the incident that she had seized and torn up the sign, and there's a video posted on YouTube that appears to record the March 4 altercation (warning: copious use of the "F-word")

Bar business wasn't so hot at REDCAT on Saturday night a half-hour before the show. The crowd had already lined up waiting for the doors to the theater to open. Word had gotten out that early birds would get ringside seats for "Rocco. " The dance by Emio Greco and Pieter C. Scholten from Amsterdam takes place in a boxing ring and was inspired by the classic Italian film "Rocco and His Brothers.

Fewer than 10% of the more than 400 citations and arrests made during a massive party-turned-riot in Isla Vista over the weekend were tied to students at nearby UC Santa Barbara, authorities said, reinforcing arguments from locals that outsiders were mostly responsible for the mayhem. According to preliminary data released Wednesday by the Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Department, 130 people were arrested Saturday night during "Deltopia," an annual, unsanctioned row of parties in Isla Vista next to the university.

As an alumnus and a trustee of the UC Santa Barbara Foundation, I write to thank you for placing so prominently on your front page the wonderful news about our two new Nobel laureates (Oct. 11). For a very long time, the excellence of UCSB has been a deep, dark secret in the community, as your staff writer Anna Gorman made abundantly clear in her superb piece. No more, thanks to my alma mater's superb chancellor, administrators, professors and students. HARVEY B. SCHECHTER Sherman Oaks

The three-point shot was not enough to keep San Diego State from losing its season opener, 87-70, at UC Santa Barbara as the Gauchos made 11 of 12 free throws in the final three minutes. Guards Josh Lowery and Tony Ross both had five three-point baskets, but it was not enough to overcome the Aztecs' lack of an inside game. UCSB (1-1) outrebounded SDSU, 58-34. "My big concern going in was the inside game," said Coach Smokey Gaines. "And that's what hurt us tonight."

Scott Fisher isn't headed for a lucrative NBA contract. At 6-7, he's just another not-particularly-mobile forward who can't run very fast or jump very high. Just a couple of years ago, Fisher wasn't thinking about a pro career. He was wondering if he'd ever play again outside of a church league. He was so impressive at Mission San Jose High School, in fact, that he had to walk on as a freshman at UC Santa Barbara.

I was deeply moved by Jervey Tervalon's statement about his encounter with Marvin Mudrick ("A Novel Education," Jan. 23). In 1949, I entered Dr. Mudrick's class at UCSB. I think it was a first for both of us: the first class Dr. Mudrick had ever taught at UCSB and, for me, the first class where a teacher dynamited conventional, lazy responses and made reading momentous. From his lovely article, I know that Tervalon is continuing Dr. Mudrick's legacy. Michael Mahon Professor Emeritus of Literature Cal State Dominguez Hills

Just hours before a UC Santa Barbara woman was gang raped near campus, a city college student reported being sexually assaulted in the area, an official said Tuesday. The first incident occurred Saturday night and was reported by a Santa Barbara City College student who said she was attacked by an unidentified man, said Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Kelly Hoover. Authorities said it was unclear if the rape was connected to an incident hours later, when a 19-year-old UC Santa Barbara student was gang raped by three men as she walked toward apartments in Isla Vista.

The second reported gang rape of a UC Santa Barbara student in as many months has shocked authorities in charge of patrolling an area not unaccustomed to sexual assaults. "We do have sexual assaults that happen, but something like this ... is horrendous," said UCSB Police Sgt. Robert Romero, whose department patrols  Isla Vista, a densely populated unincorporated community next to campus where the attack took place. Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Kelly Hoover  estimated that more than 60% of Isla Vista's residents attend UCSB but the area swells on weekends with out-of-towners coming for parties.

The California state and Santa Barbara County departments of public health, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the university confirmed Friday that they are working together to determine if Bexsero, a vaccine against type B meningococcal disease that is not yet approved for use in the U.S., would be effective against the particular type of meningitis that sickened four students in November.
