Ricky Evans always marched to his own beat. While other teens were seduced by drugs and gangs, the 15-year-old aspiring drummer from Panorama City joined a neighborhood drill team and had planned to march next month in a demonstration to "stop the violence." But violence stopped Ricky on Friday night when a drive-by shooting after a Monroe High School football game claimed the life of the ambitious sophomore.

That football teams from Taft and Westchester high schools should meet in a City Section 4-A Division semifinal tonight is appropriate. Long before they fashioned identical 12-0 records this season, they were on parallel paths. Taft, which plays host to the 7 p.m. game, has won Northwest Valley Conference titles three of the past four years. Westchester has been champion of the Coastal Conference four of the past five years.

The investigation of Inglewood High basketball player Jason Hart concluded Wednesday with Southern Section officials claiming they had found no evidence that the senior was improperly enrolled at the school. Hart, a 6-foot-2 guard who has signed a letter of intent with Syracuse, was suspended from the team for three days last week while school administrators reviewed allegations that he wasn't living in the Inglewood attendance area.

Some immediately raised their hands to protest. Others just shifted in their chairs. But everybody in the Westchester High School classroom groaned as guest speaker Arthur Richardson announced the next assignment. Students were to come to class dressed up in preparation for a four-minute mock job interview. That meant no sneakers, baggies or halter tops. "You can be anything you want to be," said Richardson, who works for the Boston Co., a mortgage lender.

I grew up in Westchester, and am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Your article on the church ("The New Mormons," Feb. 20) and how it has grown, was an article that I very much enjoyed. I have not lived in Westchester for many years, having moved to Arcadia in the San Gabriel Valley when I graduated from Westchester High School. It was most interesting to me to see how the church has grown and diversified over the years. I was thrilled to see that people of many different backgrounds have found their spiritual home in the Mormon faith in which I grew up. I want to thank you--and especially Mr. Chazanov, who wrote the article--for the integrity with which it was researched and written.

Christmas came early last week for the Westchester High boys' basketball team, which outplayed several nationally ranked teams to win the championship of the Las Vegas Holiday Classic. Even Coach Ed Azzam was surprised by the Comets' showing in the prestigious tournament. "I didn't think we could win this tournament," Azzam said. "There were too many quality teams. I thought we'd have trouble matching up, but things just fell into place."
