For 20 years, the Wilhall Park Mural in Wilmington has been a symbol of peace and harmony. When the mural is rededicated Sunday, community activists say its message will be more important than ever. "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." said D.C. Chavez of the mural restoration committee. "We have to stop these kids from getting involved in gangs and committing violence and we want this mural to bring people together to combat the problem."

Work began in Newbury Park last month and will continue in Thousand Oaks and Westlake through mid-August, said Joe Bravo, project manager for street improvements.

Trainer Wayne Lukas will look for an unprecedented 10th victory in the $250,000 Del Mar Debutante when he sends out 5-2 second choice Love Lock against seven other 2-year-old fillies. Trying to give the Lukas back-to-back victories in the race--Sharp Cat won in 1996--Love Lock will be looking for her third victory in five lifetime starts. Love Lock, owned by Michael Tabor, was pulled up in her last start--the Ellis Park Debutante on Aug. 9--but had all kinds of trouble.

When it comes to road repairs, Thousand Oaks really burns rubber. The city sped ahead last week with a program to recycle old tires for use in road pavement. Since city workers began using the rubber-asphalt blend three years ago, the innovative roadwork has helped recycle 350,000 scrap tires and pave more than 50 miles of streets in Thousand Oaks. Now, crediting the program's success, the City Council has agreed to expand the program, spending an additional $1.

Eight 3-year-olds, none of them veterans of this year's Triple Crown series, were entered Thursday for Saturday's 128th running of the Travers Stakes at Saratoga. The field for the $750,000 race, which helped Holy Bull win horse-of-the-year honors in 1994 and contributed to Thunder Gulch's 3-year-old title in 1995, grew in numbers after Touch Gold, winner of the Belmont Stakes and the Haskell Handicap, dropped out.

Pulpit was made the 4-5 early favorite Thursday to beat six other 3-year-olds in Saturday's Blue Grass Stakes at Keeneland. The $700,000 race will be the colt's first start since finishing second behind Captain Bodgit in the Florida Derby on March 15. Pulpit will run on the diuretic Lasix for the first time in the 1 1/8-mile race. After not racing as a 2-year-old because of stress fracture and other growing pains, Pulpit won his first three starts this year.

Maybe Jack has to be admired. An 11-year-old gelded son of Classic Account, the Georgia-bred is still winning his share of races and could pick up another victory in today's seventh, a $10,000 claimer at 1 1/16 miles, at Gulfstream Park. Now owned and trained by Ed Broome, Maybe Jack has won 34 of 115 starts and has been second or third on another 31 occasions. Five of those victories have come at Gulfstream, and he has been worse than third only once in 15 starts at the Florida track.
