Across the street from the Nickerson Gardens housing project, on the aptly named Success Street, is a sidewalk monument free of the graffiti that dirty the stop signs, houses and cars around it. That taggers missed this stretch of sidewalk is no accident, said a neighborhood youth as he admired the 13 granite-carved plaques placed into the sidewalk. It is because they appreciate the women and men honored here.

Federal officials gave a South-Central organization permission to open a homeless shelter for 880 people in San Pedro even though application documents released Thursday show it was only serving 20 people. A copy of the application was released by Rep. Jane Harman (D-Marina del Rey), who said she had obtained the document from the federal Health and Human Services Department.

On a strip of sidewalk near Success Avenue and 103rd Street, a group of civic leaders gathered Wednesday to enshrine two native sons in the Promenade of Prominence--Watts' answer to the Walk of Fame. But "The Straw" and "E," childhood buddies who became millionaires, were not around to celebrate. Dodger outfielder Darryl Strawberry, arrested last weekend on charges of beating his girlfriend, was said to be receiving therapy for his surgically repaired back.
