A YMCA child care program slated to close was granted a temporary reprieve after parents protested that they didn't have time to find alternatives for their children. The Eagle Rock after-school program, which officials had planned to close in the fall, will run from Labor Day to Oct. 31. The program was scheduled to be shut down because of a lack of funds and the need for a new site.

The news was staggering for these Eagle Rock and Highland Park parents: An anonymous donor had stepped forward and offered $100,000 to reopen a YMCA branch and its child-care center that is scheduled to close because of financial problems. But their elation turned to frustration this week when YMCA officials said parents need to raise $25,000 in the next three weeks to help match the donation.

A group of Highland Park and Eagle Rock parents is fuming over the loss of a local YMCA child-care center, which officials closed because of dwindling resources and the lack of an appropriate site. At least 35 children who attended the Eagle Rock center will be displaced when the after-school program fails to open in the fall. Many of the children attend the YMCA's summer day camp, which ends Aug. 29 and is not expected to reopen next summer.

The evergreen pear trees that line much of Colorado Boulevard in Eagle Rock are nearing the end of their life span, said Scott Wilson, a retired horticulture teacher who heads the nonprofit group North East Trees. He knows, he said, because he was there when they were planted 32 years ago. Together with a group of his students from Eagle Rock High School, Wilson planted the dark-leaved trees to beautify the thoroughfare.

Tahe communities surrounding Occidental College are a demographic crazy quilt. Latinos, whites and Asian Americans live there. So do students and senior citizens, poor people and the well-to-do. Often, the groups live in separate micro-communities, rarely taking the time to sit down and chat.

It's official: Eagle Rock, that beak-nosed sandstone landmark of the community of the same name, is about to go public. The new role for the old rock came about with a Los Angeles City Council vote on Tuesday to pay $699,000 to the rock's owner to settle a lawsuit he had filed against the city. With payment, the city Recreation and Parks Department will take possession of the rock and 2.5 acres of surrounding land from its current owner, Frederic A.
