Re "Bus Line Changes Reroute Business," July 1 Catching Spring Street public transit has become more dangerous with the change in routes from Spring Street to Main Street. The change has disbursed bus riders to stops close to Needle Park and above Spring. More lighting and increased Los Angeles Police Department patrols simply aren't going to make the area safe enough after dark. The intersection of Third and Spring streets, where the state building is located, is already so perilous that the Department of Justice employs security personnel to escort employees who work after dark to the parking structure directly across the street.

A demonstration in Beverly Hills to protest George Zimmerman's acquittal snarled traffic but remained peaceful, while 17 people were arrested in Victorville were arrested after a rally in the San Bernardino County community turned rowdy. In Victorville, eight of the 17 people arrested Wednesday night were juveniles, the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department said. Most of the arrests were made on charges of unlawful assembly. A department spokeswoman said most of the 80 people who took part in the rally were peaceful.  PHOTOS: George Zimmerman trial verdict protests But 10 to 15 juveniles went into a store at a Chevron gas station near Bear Valley Road and Balsam Avenue and reportedly opened items and left without paying, authorities said.

The drug dealers are gone, but fear still lingers around Lanark Park. After an intense two-year crackdown on the pushers who turned the park into the largest open-air drug market in the west San Fernando Valley, residents acknowledge that their streets are no longer lined by dealers hawking their wares. The parade of users driving by in search of a fix has been replaced by Los Angeles police patrols. And used syringes no longer litter the alleyways. Yet many are afraid just the same.

It's more good than "Bad" these days on Hayvenhurst Avenue in Encino. But the neighbors of Michael Jackson still don't want to talk about how good it is. "Yeah, it's OK now. There are no problems and I think it will stay that way," said one man who lives on the street. "But it was chaos for a while. I don't even like to bring it up." Another resident, who asked not to be identified, said, "I just don't want to get things stirred up again. Everything is calm, and I hope it stays that way."
