A former religion teacher at an Ojai Valley private school was sentenced to five years in state prison Friday for having sex with a 17-year-old student. James Eric Woodstock Jr., 32, pleaded guilty in May to three charges of unlawful sex with a minor, plus an allegation that he caused great bodily injury to the girl by getting her pregnant. "It really was a tragic case because of the impact on the victim's life," Deputy Dist. Atty. Linda Groberg said. "He was her religion and morality teacher."

St. Bonaventure High School junior Heidi Lypps thought she would have been right in step with the tuxedo she planned to wear for her prom tonight. But she found that officials of the Catholic school in Ventura have drawn a line on the dance floor that only girls in gowns may cross. Lypps, 17, said she thought of wearing a tuxedo to the prom after the success she had wearing a man's tailored suit to a "Backward Dance" at St. Bonaventure in January--with the blessing of school officials.

Santa Paula High School sophomore Summer Laurin has been playing soccer in the fields near her home for years. But she and 34 others were turned away last year when 53 girls turned out for the school's only girls' soccer team. And when a group of parents asked the school board to start a second girls' team--pointing out that the boys' soccer program had two teams for the same number of athletes--school officials said they couldn't afford it.

I found Howard Rosenberg's column regarding Mike Scully's outrage over Fox's censorship of a "Simpsons" spoof of the Catholic Church to be very dismissive of the concerns of those who were the target of the joke ("Fox Does Have Standards--and Double Standards," June 2). I am Catholic and think I hold up fairly well under criticism of my chosen faith. However, I find that in all mediums, Catholic-bashing seems to be very popular. Television shows, magazines and books belittle everything from our belief in the Immaculate Conception to the pope's miter.

Standing in his spacious court chambers, Presiding Justice Arthur Gilbert loosened his tie and launched into an intellectual discussion of search and seizure laws. "What do you think?" he asked. It was the type of question typically posed to a law clerk or fellow jurist. But Gilbert was looking for an answer from a different source Thursday--a group of high school seniors who participated in a one-of-a-kind program aimed at educating students on the California appellate system.

A slow-moving brush fire scorched 80 acres south of Ojai on Wednesday, burning within 50 feet of homes near the Camp Comfort area of Creek Road. More than 200 firefighters battled flames of up to 50 feet, eyewitnesses said. The blaze was contained before it destroyed any homes, but fire officials said it could be a grim harbinger for the future, as rainfall is below average and the driest months lie ahead.
