Activists from across the city implored a Los Angeles City Council committee this week to exempt their neighborhoods from a proposed bus-bench contract that they say would erase years of efforts to beautify their communities. In order to carry out the proposed contract, which would replace more than 6,000 worn-out benches citywide, the city would have to rewrite the specific plans for 15 Los Angeles communities--including the Ventura Boulevard Specific Plan.

The federal government has yet to spend roughly one-half of the nearly $17 billion in aid it has earmarked for the Northridge earthquake. But authorities are already bracing for an inevitable post-disaster truth: Even that hefty sum won't be enough to handle all the pleas for help.

The city is raising the fees that golfers pay to use municipal courses, but in a move that is likely to please sport enthusiasts, will maintain current fees until after the busy summer season. On Wednesday, the Los Angeles Board of Recreation and Parks Commissioners decided to raise weekday greens fees by $1, to $17 per round, and weekend fees by $1.50, to $22 per round.

Last year Helen Keller Park was so lifeless and desolate that locals referred to it as a graveyard. Financial troubles forced cancellation of its baseball program, and the Athens park became the realm of what locals called "the negative element.' "When baseball stopped, the gang-bangers and drug dealers took over," said longtime area resident Marvo Hider, recalling the groups of young men who gathered near the playground to drink malt liquor, play dominoes and deal dope.

To Morgan Griffith's way of thinking, the big star wasn't visible at Griffith Observatory when its 60th anniversary was celebrated Monday. "The mayor's not here," complained the 11-year-old great-great-granddaughter of Col. Griffith J. Griffith--the man who gave Griffith Park and funds for its landmark Griffith Observatory to Los Angeles. "I was looking forward to meeting him," she said. "I think he's a very nice man who does a good job running the city. He should have been here."
