Only in California, with a population of nearly 37 million, can you drive up and down the state and run into people and communities with so diverse interests. The same can be said about watching high school football in Southern California. From no-huddle offenses to double-wing formations, from schools with million-dollar fields to schools with dirt fields, the variety on display is mind-boggling. But the excitement of playing for a championship is universal, whether you live in Westlake Village or 276 miles away in Bishop.

Make that a perfect 10 for the Ottawa Senators. Daniel Alfredsson scored twice in the final minute -- including an empty-netter -- and the Senators extended a franchise-best winning streak to 10 with a 4-2 victory over the Buffalo Sabres on Wednesday night. In a night of milestones, Brian Elliott stopped 36 shots to win his eighth in a row, matching the team record he set last year. The Senators also tied a team mark by winning their sixth consecutive road game. Jason Spezza had two goals to give him a seven-game scoring streak, including five since returning from a right knee injury.

Re "Huge raid targets gang," June 26 As a resident of Eagle Rock, I could not be more pleased with the combined efforts of law enforcement in bringing some sort of control to the escalating gang violence in our area. I am also happy that The Times gave the story front-page prominence. One issue The Times does not address is how close this gang activity is to the Los Angeles Police Department's Northeast Division headquarters. In some areas of Drew Street, you are less than a mile from the station.

As they reviewed annual crime statistics at the end of 2005, top officials at the Los Angeles Police Department's Northeast Division were puzzled. Though total crime in the division -- which runs from Los Feliz and Silver Lake through Eagle Rock -- dropped 4%, they were not celebrating because it was the smallest decline of any section of Los Angeles. And it was well below the 10% citywide reduction called for by Chief William J. Bratton and delivered by most other divisions. Capt. Morris T.

Police said Wednesday that they are mystified over the execution-style slaying of two men in a parked car in Highland Park. About half a dozen young men in gang-style garb opened fire on the pair Tuesday night as they sat in a black 1990 Ford Bronco on Granada Street near Avenue 50, according to Detective Art Placencia of the Los Angeles Police Department's Northeast Division. A single shot to the head killed the 31-year-old passenger, while the driver, Roman Murcia, 35, was gunned down as he ran from the truck, Placencia said.

I was amazed and appalled by quotes from police officers of the Northeast Division in your article on gay-bashing in Silver Lake (April 5). For someone to say that gay-bashing is not a problem in the area is to deny reality. For the division commander to say he was arranging extra patrols to deal with gay men "committing sex acts" as much as for the hoodlums who have attacked gays and straights alike is irresponsible. As part of a Neighborhood Watch group, I have talked with community groups and neighbors.
