I am calling about the Top 103 Most Influential People list. I wanted to say it was in extremely poor taste, to rank Hoover High School co-principals Kevin Welsh and Pam Good as No. 7, and defense attorney Mark Geragos, who is representing one of the alleged killers of Hoover student Raul Aguirre, at No. 8. Putting Geragos' face next to Welsh and Good was obviously done for journalistic sensationalism. I think under the circumstances the paper could have done better.

Hoover High School Co-principal Kevin Welsh surprised students on Friday when he grabbed a set of drumsticks and hammered out a version of the Rolling Stones' "Brown Sugar" with a group of student musicians during a concert at the school. About every 10 weeks, student musicians perform at the school. But Welsh took the privilege away a few months ago when students shoved each other in a mosh pit during a performance and used inappropriate lyrics, Welsh said.

I want to assure Iris and Orlando Nieves Jr., whose letters appeared in the May 10 Community Forum, that principal Kevin Welsh has done everything humanly possible to prevent campus violence from happening at Hoover High School. As a Hoover parent volunteer, as the mother of a SPIRIT team co-leader during its inception year of 1998, and as president of Hoover's 1997-1998 Parent Teacher Student Association, I take exception when well-intentioned adults ask "what are THEY going to do about it?"

Alecia Foster NORTHWEST GLENDALE -- Glendale High Co-principal Mike Livingston couldn't stop laughing at his school's two special guests. "They both taught here. They should have known the song," he said with a chuckle. The two guests, Hoover High co-principals Kevin Welsh and Hasmik Danielian, paused to crack jokes and comment on the Glendale High fight song as they tried to sing it for students Wednesday morning. The song was part of a friendly bet made between the schools prior to the big Hoover-Glendale football game Nov. 9. The bet has become a tradition for the two schools.

Darleene Barrientos Students had to look twice to make sure it was Hoover High Principal Kevin Welsh striding down the hallway Thursday clad in a bright green, plastic bowler hat, a shamrock tie, olive green pants -- and a green mustache. Some students let out hesitant laughter; others gasped "whoa," while another called out, "Hey, Mr. Welsh, nice face." Welsh's green mustache on St. Patrick's Day has become a school tradition. He's done it since he started as a teacher in 1972.

Gary Moskowitz Sue Brown would like a word with her old high school counselor. While participating in the 11th annual Principal for a Day event Thursday at Hoover High School, Brown remembered a school counselor who told her she would never make it in banking because her shorthand wasn't good enough. Brown, vice president and manager of Verdugo Banking Co., was one of 33 community leaders invited to be a guest "principal for a day" at elementary, middle and high schools throughout the district.

Last Friday Hoover, Toll and Keppel experienced a lockdown that was set in motion by a boy who brought an air pistol to school. A full SWAT team was deployed, along with what looked like half of Glendale's police. Helicopters circled overhead. The gun in question looked very much like a deadlier model that shoots real bullets. Within minutes of this episode, all three schools sent out over their intercoms the following message: "This is not a drill. Go immediately into lockdown.

Gary Moskowitz Cleo Cox Davidson has compiled a list of about 17 people she'd sure love to see again. The 1936 Hoover High School graduate began putting the list together the minute she got word of Hoover's 75th anniversary celebration. The school's alumni association will host a party and all-class reunion May 15 on the school's athletic field. Davidson not only graduated from Hoover in 1936, she also was named Miss Glendale the same year, at the age of 17. "I hope with all my heart that I get to see once more the kids I used to love to be with so much," Davidson said.
