'The Substitute'**; Rated RIn "The Substitute," Tom Berenger, still sporting the artificial scars that mottled his face in "Platoon," appears as a CIA cowboy-type who, when his school teacher-girlfriend is roughed up by dope dealers in a Dade County high school, presents himself for work the next morning in her stead. In his briefcase is the complete teacher's-helper kit: silenced pistols, night-scoped machine pistols, infrared goggles and ninja throwing stars.There's some amusing reactionary potential here, at least for a politically incorrect hoot or two, as an old-fashioned tough guy with enough weaponry to take down a Soviet ICBM complex goes after today's coddled, rights-screaming, out-of-control youth.

A fish, in wrestling terms, isn't not a complimentary term."I guess it's someone who just kind of flops around [on the mat]," said Mount St. Joseph coach Paul Triplett.In short: It's a wrestler who isn't very good.And West Friendship resident Kevin Neville, Triplett's top wrestler, has been catching a lot of 152-pounders as the Maryland State Wrestling Association's top-ranked competitor in that weight class.Against No. 7 Boys' Latin on Friday, Neville (22-2, 13 pins) notched another pin.
