Annie Dinkins could hear the young children outside her window cursing and fighting. She asked the Lord to do something. Instead, she says, the Lord asked her: What are you doing?

Assemblyman Tony Cardenas (D-Sylmar) will present the Northeast Valley Health Corp. with a $17,200 state grant today to help purchase vans that will transport HIV patients to its clinic. The health corporation needed the money to receive $86,000 from a state program called Caltrans 5310, which requires organizations to provide a 20% matching grant. "We contacted Assemblyman Cardenas and he got the $17,200 from the state budget," said Helen Arriola, a health corporation spokeswoman.

As patriotic tunes blared over a loudspeaker, veterans filed onto the Ventura College football field Friday, wearing tattered tennis shoes and layers of shabby clothes. They arrived by bus and by foot, their faces were unshaven and their gait weary. Within an hour, however, they had taken showers, donned clean clothes and new shoes and received haircuts. And the vets were assigned to their homes for the next three days--military cots under olive-colored tents.

Gabriela Carballo stood inside the Monroe Self-Help Legal Access Center on Thursday, waiting impatiently for the first patron to step in. "It's almost like being a real lawyer," she said. The 17-year-old James Monroe High School senior and a group of about 50 students, teachers, volunteer lawyers and others celebrated the opening of what is being billed as a first-of-its-kind self-help legal center at the high school.
