State transportation officials have determined that a Lake View Terrace neighborhood plagued by traffic noise from the Foothill Freeway deserves a new sound barrier. The assessment comes three weeks after sound sensors on the north side of the freeway from Orcas to Christy avenues measured noise levels exceeding a state-defined tolerable threshold for residential neighborhoods.

After arsonists burned down Samuel Zekarias' convenience store during the 1992 riots, he and his wife thought they had weathered the worst crisis they could imagine in their adopted country. Sadly, they were wrong. "I wish it had stayed burned," his sister-in-law, Yeshi Robinson, said Tuesday. "If it had stayed burned, he would still be here." Early Sunday morning, the 46-year-old Ethiopian immigrant was shot and killed by a man who robbed his 7-Eleven store at 4930 W. Pico Blvd.

About 175 people attended a rally Sunday in Lake View Terrace to show support for the Los Angeles Police Department. The "Back the Blue" rally, held near the site where Rodney G. King was videotaped being beaten by Los Angeles police officers three months ago, was intended to boost the spirits of police "who are risking their lives every day," rally organizer Adelaide Nimitz said. The rally at Hansen Dam included a caravan of about 75 motorcyclists.

Encouraged by a warm welcome from nearby Lake View Terrace homeowners, the San Fernando Valley Fair board voted Friday to move a scaled-down version of the annual fair to Hansen Dam. The location is less than ideal, board members said, because to win consent from nearby homeowners and the Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks, they agreed to ban carnival rides, concerts and sale of alcoholic drinks. Those were the major money-makers at past fairs. The fair, scheduled for July 14 to 16, will be restricted to such traditional country fair offerings as livestock exhibits, harvest celebrations, banjo contests, lumberjack competitions and craft booths.

The team of officers was explaining Los Angeles police procedures to a meeting of about 80 residents in the Lake View Terrace Recreation Center on Wednesday evening when the discussion moved to the subject of probable cause. "Why is a person made to lie on the ground when they are stopped?" asked Melanie Bernard, a teacher's assistant from Lake View Terrace. An officer on the panel explained that ordering a person to the ground had to be justified by probable cause.

Lake View Terrace--thrust into the public eye this week by the brutal beating that Los Angeles Police officers administered to a man they stopped for speeding there--is a largely working-class, racially mixed community where horse ranches coexist with gangs and drugs.

It's been, on one level, a standard neighborhood development dispute--angry homeowners in Lake View Terrace trying to block an outside organization's project in their area. From the start, however, the nature of the project has made emotions more intense than usual. At issue is a proposal for a drug treatment center, raising residents' fears that addicts will be running loose near their homes. And then there's the kicker.

The cross-burning trial of white supremacist Tom Metzger and three other men will begin next Monday, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge J.D. Smith determined Monday. Metzger and his co-defendants are accused of felony conspiracy to violate the municipal fire code stemming from a 1983 ceremony in which three 18-foot wooden crosses were set afire in the foothills above the San Fernando Valley.
