School officials, parents and politicians tried to rally support Friday in Cypress Park for a stalled bill that would provide funds for sidewalks, pedestrian bridges and other such facilities near schools statewide. The Safe Routes to School bill, written by state Sen. Nell Soto (D-Pomona), would provide $20 million over the next three years. The bill is in an inactive file, and its supporters fear it will die.

Homicides increased 21% in the San Fernando Valley for the first half of the year, according to Los Angeles Police Department statistics. Overall, the Valley's crime rate increased less than 1%, compared to a citywide drop of 8.7%. The number of Valley homicides rose from 38 for the first six months of last year to 46 for the same period this year, due in part to an increase in gang-related slayings, police said.

I was exceedingly pleased to read the comments of four randomly selected men and women on the Platform topic of "South-Central: Are Whites' Fears Justified?" (Voices, July 18). They all agreed in their responses that there is a false perception of our area. The truth is that the Los Angeles Police Department statistics show that there is no safer place in the city than the Exposition Park area when there is an event at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum or Sports Arena. Fans can expect significant law enforcement personnel and customer assistance personnel on duty at Raiders and USC football at the Coliseum, Clippers and USC basketball at the Sports Arena and special events at those facilities and in Exposition Park.

Re "Plan to Merge Police Agencies Falters," March 4: Councilman Nate Holden's remarks are both insulting and without merit. As a police officer for the Los Angeles Unified School District, I am one of those "misfits." Some facts Holden should know: Who patrolled and kept secure more than 900 school district sites during the 1992 riots without even one location being vandalized or burglarized? Who did the same during the Northridge earthquake? And who was it that secured our elementary school campuses in the immediate area of the Feb. 28 North Hollywood bank robbery shootout?

The stretch of Laurel Canyon Boulevard that goes over the Santa Monica Mountains is well-known for its woodsy beauty and picturesque homes, but the street is gaining fame for a less rosy reason. The number of traffic accidents on Laurel Canyon between Mulholland Drive and Canton Drive has escalated to the point that one area resident now calls the stretch "dead man's curve."
