THEME:   first word of a phrase is a kind of SHOT
   
GOOD ONES:    
Try {& theme}   GIVE IT A SHOT   
Reading after resetting   OOO [like the way this looks]   
Audio receiver   EAR   
Collection of heir pieces?   ESTATE   
Multi-cell creature?   TOON   
Doc who adminsters a PET scan?   VET [but the unneeded question mark gives it away]   
   
BTW:   
Pal, slangily   HOMIE  [without any proof, I believe this (and homes) comes from East L.A. and is short for hombre, meaning man.  In Spanish, hombre is pronounced with a long O, as is homes, which can sometimes be homie]   
   
   
   
RATING:    ;D ;D ;D
Three grins = Loved it; Two grins = Enjoyed it; One grin = A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = Not much fun

Thanks for the link.  The Vermont DOC seems to be most creative in its approach to education, the root of which is "to turn."

THEME:   last word of a phrase relates to sheet music
   
GOOD ONES:     
Composer's output {& theme}   SHEET MUSIC   
   
BTW:   
Part of Uncle Sam's outfit   TOP HAT [I'd have gone with Fred Astaire for the good memory]   
   
Had to guess ETSY at 61-D because I never heard of it.  "Tees off" didn't help because it might have been IRKS. (I went with the E because it is used more than K.)   
   
   
RATING:    ;D

It looks like CHSVT is doing a good job for their students.

THEME:   two-word phrases each word of which begins with D
   
GOOD ONES:     
Cavity filler's letters {& theme}   DDS   
Touch down   LAND [note two words]   
   
BTW:   
Knowing that young people were involved in the creation of this puzzle made it special to me.

I look forward to the Sunday puzzle but this one was so boring I didn't even finish it.

THEME:   the letters PAR are separated in long 9 phrases
   
GOOD ONES:    
"Breaking Par" as a title   
Jade or ruby   HUE   
Laundering evidence   MONEY TRAIL   
Silver checker   REIN [Lone Ranger's horse]   
   
BTW:   
Getting 9 theme entries is a feather in the cap of the constructor, but for a  solver, I found the experience a bit uninspired for a Sunday.  Yet as many as C.C. produces, it's understandable.   
   
   
RATING: ;D

This is not my decision. The LA Times were kind enough to offer the puzzle, but made it clear that it was for visitors to the cruciverb.com website only. No phone or tablet apps. Sorry.
