RE THE RAPE at Stetson: I teach 8th grade and discussed this incident with my students. I also was shocked by the mothers' remarks and wanted to hear my students' point of view. They correctly realized the school, the parents and the perpetrator share in the blame. There were 14 teacher assaults in that school from September to November. Not stopping the violence encourages it, and that was the responsibility of Edison Schools. The principal, according to the newspaper, made several requests for extra security and was told to wait until Christmas.

Middle school students in the West Chester Area School District made their way past bulldozers and traffic cones to shiny new classrooms on their first day of school yesterday. After a hectic weekend of last-minute cleaning, paving and plumbing repairs, the partially finished Stetson and Peirce Middle Schools opened for students in grades six through eight. Several months of work remain for both schools, which were almost entirely razed for $15 million projects, which included dividing each school's nearly 900 students into three wings, one per grade.

Cole Hamels stood in the doorway of Allen Pinkney's Stetson Middle School classroom yesterday morning, eyes fixed on a music teacher belting out an aria. "Amazing," the Phillies pitcher whispered to his wife, Heidi. When Pinkney finished, the couple cheered and clapped. "I brought my husband to see you, Mr. Pinkney," Heidi Hamels said. Then, turning to Cole, she added: "I told them you sing like a dead bird. " The room erupted in laughter, but it was pretty clear that no one minded Cole Hamels' lack of singing skills.

A Stetson Middle School sign directed all visitors to report to the office, but the men steering minibulldozers paid no attention yesterday as they drove down gutted hallways. The wreckers drove their tiny, tanklike vehicles into classrooms that had solar system projects hanging from ceilings and multiplication tables scribbled on blackboards. They and other workers have three weeks to demolish Stetson and Peirce Middle Schools. It's one of the final stages of a $30 million project to rebuild the structures that was approved in 1996.

DALLAS - Relatives of the legendary sharpshooter Annie Oakley are offering up a collection of items - including her Stetson hat, guns, letters, and photographs - in an auction that one expert says hits the mark for its breadth and sentimental value. On Sunday, Heritage Auctions will offer up about 100 Oakley-related items in Dallas, including a 12-gauge Parker Brothers shotgun that is expected to fetch about $100,000. Two Marlin .22-caliber rifles are expected to sell for more than $20,000 each.

"Take a look at the way the light is now," teacher Anthony Rocco told the students in his photography club. "You get some really strong shadows. " Clutching donated cameras, the young teens set off down B Street to take pictures of the neighborhood to share with their "photo buddies" in a tiny town in Colombia.

LOOKS LIKE the U.S. Forest Service is hopping on the Betty White bandwagon. The Associated Press reports that the service made the 88-year-old national treasure an honorary ranger yesterday. White received a badge and a ranger's Stetson hat, complete with a Smokey Bear cameo. White asked if she could take Smokey home, but was given a stuffed animal version instead. (Really, Betty, living with a bear is dangerous. An avowed environmentalist like yourself should know that.) "The Golden Girls" star said she wanted to be a ranger when she was little, but women weren't allowed to don the Stetson at the time.
