Irma Lemus HILLSIDE DISTRICT -- Bellarmine-Jefferson High School students are getting a taste of Hollywood filmmaking. With a borrowed 16 mm camera and other equipment, 50 students from the school are putting in time over the summer to produce their first film, said Bell-Jeff film teacher Michael Kane. The equipment was donated by Clairmont Camera in Hollywood and the film was given to the school by Kodak and Fuji, Kane said. Kane said he was eager to have a finished product by the time school begins in the fall so he has something to show off to students who will be in his film and video production class.

Gary Moskowitz BURBANK -- Kandie Soderstrom's Girl Scouts, like all Americans, will forever remember Sept. 11, 2001. But what is important to Soderstrom and the 600 Burbank Girl Scouts who made thank-you cards Saturday for relief workers in New York City is that they remember how they helped during a time of tragedy. "A lot of my girls are scared by all of this," said Soderstrom, a service unit manager and troop leader. "Many of us can't talk about what's happened, so drawing and writing these thank-you cards has been a way for us to express ourselves."

Mark R. Madler Like most of his nearly 100 classmates, Jerome Angeles had his own personal cheering section when he graduated Saturday morning from Bellarmine-Jefferson High School. His was just a little more, well, enthusiastic. Following the ceremony at the Hall of Liberty at Forest Lawn Hollywood Hills, a group of cousins held up letters spelling out Jerome's name so he could spot them easier among the several hundred people milling about, talking and taking pictures.

Mark R. Madler Students in Sergio Ballesteros' world history and geography classes at Bellarmine- Jefferson High School might want to start honing up on their current events. With the start of classes today at the private Roman Catholic school, Ballesteros plans to make sure his students know what's going on outside the borders of the United States. "The whole point of learning history is trying to prevent the same thing from happening again," said Ballesteros, a Los Angeles native.

Erik Boal Since its opening in 1944, Bellarmine-Jefferson High School has competed in only a handful of California Interscholastic Federation championship events. It wasn't until 1997 that the Guards won their first -- and only -- Southern Section title, posting a 47-45 victory against Cerritos Valley Christian in the Division IVA girls' basketball final. After a six-year hiatus, Bell-Jeff returns today to the scene of its crowning athletic achievement, the Long Beach Pyramid.
