Karen S. Kim MONTROSE -- Gary Schroeder started working at his father's Burbank manufacturing shop when he was only 7, standing on a Coca-Cola crate to run the machines. Now the 47-year-old Burbank businessman runs the shop himself, manufacturing steering and suspension components for race cars. In his spare time, Schroeder restores old roadsters and hot rods and race cars, a hobby that's gaining him some fame in Montrose. One of Schroeder's restored cars, a black aluminum roadster that won several awards at the Oakland Roadster Show, has been emblazoned on the back of a silk bowling shirt being sold out of Kimmel-Meehan Clothiers, a men's store on Honolulu Avenue.

DAN KIMBER There was a time in public schools when corporal punishment by teachers was allowed. In loco parentis ("In place of the parents") was a legal, moral and educational authorization for teachers to "apply physical pain as a method of changing behavior." In the past, that could have meant hitting, slapping, spanking, punching, kicking, pinching, shaking, shoving or choking. It might have involved placing the student in painful or uncomfortable surroundings (like the dark confines of a cloakroom that I seem to remember)

But for all the frustration the La Canada High shortstop had to endure because of ill-timed defensive miscues against Pomona Diamond Ranch and Irvine Northwood the past two years in the quarterfinals, Tuesday's game against Santa Barbara San Marcos provided Rodli with the sweetest opportunity at redemption.
