About 300 people turned out Sunday to watch line dancers and hear country-Western music during a quake-delayed festival to honor outstanding local residents. The Northridge Chamber of Commerce had scheduled a black-tie-optional banquet for Feb. 25 at the Marriott Hotel. But the ceremony had to be delayed because of the Jan. 17 earthquake. "Nobody was in the mood to celebrate then," said Marge Russo, chairwoman of the event and president of Russo Realty in Northridge.

Like many people, Janet Mitchell doesn't attend church every Sunday. But, she decided to go on Sunday. After all, it was Easter. Mitchell was among the more than 4,000 people gathered for a nondenominational Easter service sponsored by Shepherd of the Hills Church and held on the Cal State Northridge football field Sunday morning. "I haven't been to church in a while, but I enjoyed it," said Mitchell. "It thought it was wonderful and very uplifting."

One day after the most heartbreaking loss of their short careers, the 14 members of the Northridge Little League team were wide-eyed with surprise Sunday as a cheering throng at Los Angeles International Airport gave them a hero's homecoming. Saturday's wrenching 4-3 loss to a fire-throwing team from Maracaibo, Venezuela, in the final game of the Little League World Series might just as well never have happened. "They are one of the two best teams in the world, and they'll always be No.

The Metrolink station in Northridge has been in operation since February, but it has never been an official station on the line. That's all to be remedied today when the station--built in just five days to relieve transportation problems caused by the Northridge earthquake--is dedicated with a country western carnival, games and a "Metrolink Hayride."

When the earthquake rolled through on Jan. 17, the Los Angeles city firefighters of Station 70 in Northridge had to take one engine out a back door because the front door was so damaged. When they returned from the scene of 16 deaths at the Northridge Meadows Apartments complex--where they were the first company to arrive--it became apparent that more than the door was damaged. And the firefighters were booted out.

Wow, man, it's time to correct a major historical injustice. All these East Coast intellectual types are talking about some music festival we don't even remember when a far more mind-blowing festival happened right here in our own back yard. Dig it: 200,000 people got together in June of '69 for peace and love, and the weirdest thing was, they got together at Devonshire Downs in Northridge, man. It really happened!

For most of the past month, the 14 members of the Northridge Little League team have lived like celebrities in the odd world where fantasy and reality intersect. The boys got a healthy dose of both Monday--a day that dawned with stretch limousines, unfolded on the idealized streets of Disneyland and ended on the suburban boulevards of Northridge.
