Last May, Granada Hills High eliminated Venice with an emotional victory in the City section 4-A boys' volleyball quarterfinals. Much has changed since then. Granada Hills graduated four key players, and standout Mike Whitmore transferred to Kennedy. And on Wednesday, the Highlanders also lost a nonleague rematch with Venice, 15-8, 15-7, 15-8. "I don't know if we took them easily or not, but we just weren't focused," said outside hitter Ryan Kamins.

Michael Chang's success in the French Open galls John McEnroe, who complained Wednesday that young tennis players are "getting away with murder" when they beat the established stars. "I'd like to start a committee of veteran players to put these others in their place," McEnroe said. McEnroe, 30, made his remarks at the Beckenham grass court championships as rain delayed his scheduled match. He is using the event to prepare for Wimbledon, where he will be making a bid for his fourth title.

The environment, more like a scrimmage than a match, was eerily quiet, perhaps because Cal State Northridge fans weren't sure what to expect. The Matadors, 3-21 last season, were on the court for the first time, playing La Verne, a Division III men's volleyball team that hung one of those losses on Northridge last season.

Martin Verkerk had never won a match at a Grand Slam tournament. Until this one. Verkerk, a 6-foot-3, 24-year-old pro from the Netherlands, stands as the only unseeded player left in the French Open men's draw. He is the tallest player left. He is the biggest server, the best volleyer. He is the most demonstrative, having taken to falling on his back onto the clay after each upset, most recently when he knocked out 1998 French Open champion Carlos Moya.

The gay bathhouse issue has finally hit San Diego County. But even with the experience of other communities before us, there are more questions than answers on how to handle this dilemma pitting public health against individual liberty. Do bathhouses help spread AIDS? Should they be shut down as a public health menace? Or should they be regulated to make them less desirable for homosexual men seeking an easy avenue for anonymous sex with multiple partners?

Here's a riddle that has puzzled Los Angeles officials for two years: What is "invisible," but won't disappear? Started over a court, but ended up in a court? Is a bright idea to some but a dark threat to others? The answer: Controversial tennis-court lights behind luxury homes on a Sherman Oaks hilltop. The question is whether city officials should allow the lights to be switched on and used at night.
