Crime reports are up significantly for the latest week in seven L.A. neighborhoods, according to an analysis of LAPD data by the Los Angeles Times' Crime L.A. database . Five neighborhoods reported a significant increase in violent crime. Shadow Hills (A) was the most unusual, recording three reports compared with a weekly average of 0.4 over the last three months. Koreatown (F) topped the list of two neighborhoods with property crime alerts. It recorded 53 property crimes compared with its weekly average of 32.8 over the last three months.

The gym is packed with dozens of children, all dressed up for the Jewish holiday of Purim: Spider-Men, Batmen, fairies, Aladdins and princesses. Mothers sit on the side in bubbly chatter, some wearing Muslim head scarves, others gold or silver crosses. The clown hosting the event invites the children on stage to show off their costumes and sing a song in Arabic that everybody knows. Even though most of them are Arabs, they can't think of one. They ask to sing a Hebrew Purim song instead.

I took great interest in "They Did Go Home Again" (March 23), about Angelenos resettling in the neighborhoods where they grew up. Although I grew up in San Pedro, I've lived the past 20 years in the neighborhood where my grandfather grew up. When he was riding his donkey cart here on dirt streets (I have a photo of him with his sister in this cart), this neighborhood was called Exposition Park. It is now called North University Park. My great-grandfather moved his family here because it was the best neighborhood in the city.

Eleven Los Angeles neighborhoods--including three in the Valley--should begin reaping the benefits of the Targeted Neighborhoods Initiative by the beginning of next year, city officials said Monday. Created by Mayor Richard Riordan and approved by the City Council in March, the $33-million program will use federal funds to help community organizations make a variety of improvements in their areas.

Adams Square, Tropico, High Line Road and a dozen other neighborhoods are all part of the puzzle that equals southern Glendale. But have they lost their identity as the city has grown and their unique houses and shops were razed to make way for apartment buildings?
