The Coalition for a Non-Violent City, which formed after the 1993 Halloween night killings of three boys, has moved from Old Pasadena to northwest Pasadena, an area plagued by gang violence. Coalition members wanted bigger office space in an area where much of its target audience lives, said Gisselle Acevedo Franco, 38, the executive director who took over in June. A free open house with refreshments is scheduled from 6 to 8 p.m. Monday at the new headquarters, 236 W. Mountain St., Suite 102.

Of all the silly, misguided efforts to reduce crime in our local area, Pasadena's plan to register ammunition has to be the worst. Assistant City Atty. Carolyn Y. Williams should be reprimanded for the time she wasted working on this pointless, feel-good ordinance with the Coalition for a Non-Violent City. First of all, bullets do not have registration numbers. Guns have registration numbers, and spent bullets can be traced back to a specific gun but not to any batch of bullets sold.

Children's Defense Fund President Marian Wright Edelman hopes this year's National Observance of Children's Sabbaths will draw attention in religious communities to child health care. "Children are the apple of God's eye," said Edelman, who will address a conference next Saturday in Pasadena. "We hope that it will be a catalyst for continuing action." "Seeking Shalom: Healthy Children, Healthy Nation" is the theme for this year's Children's Sabbaths.
