As he wolfed down a tuna salad sandwich Tuesday afternoon, Yoshimitsu Morishita reflected on why he had just traveled 5,500 miles to study English at a former parochial girls' school in Studio City. "I want to play at many things, in many places," the 17-year-old Japanese high school student said with the help of a translator in the cafeteria of his new school. "I want to see Disneyland, Grand Canyon, Universal Studios."

It is lunchtime at Osaka Sangyo University in Studio City and students begin gathering at tables in the grassy lunch area. "Hey man, what's up?" 13-year-old Jon Stoll calls out to a slight Japanese teen-ager. Takeshi Nagatomo, 17, looks up, unsure of what the American youth is saying. "No! I mean, how are you," Jon explains. Still slightly confused, Takeshi raises his hand and slaps him a high five, a move he learned only a few days ago.

A community meeting will be held Wednesday to discuss a hotly debated plan by Los Angeles City Councilman Zev Yaroslavsky to block a popular rush-hour shortcut from Laurel Canyon Boulevard. Yaroslavsky called for the meeting to settle a dispute between residents who oppose the elimination of the shortcut and those who say it creates traffic and safety problems for those living nearby.

Washington caught a ball over the middle and fell awkwardly when hit. He spent the afternoon on crutches but said he didn't believe he would be sidelined long. Russell was scheduled for an X-ray.

Three schools came together Thursday afternoon in Studio City to present letters, a scroll signed by an entire school and $2,000 that students collected to help their Japanese counterparts in earthquake-ravaged Kobe. Students from Woodlake Avenue School, St. Michael and All Angels School and Campbell Hall collaborated on the effort in hopes not only of lifting the spirits of Japanese students, but also to aid in their recovery, said William Price, Osaka Sangyo University's Los Angeles director.

City Councilman Zev Yaroslavsky on Monday announced an alternative to his controversial plan to eliminate left-hand turns from a busy Studio City boulevard onto three residential streets. Under the new proposal, left-hand turns from Laurel Canyon Boulevard onto Maxwellton and Viewcrest roads would be prohibited weekdays between 3 and 7 p.m., but a protected left-hand turn arrow and lane would be installed to allow turns onto Laurel Terrace Drive during the same period.

At the top of Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan's five-point budget plan is a single goal that comes before everything else: improving safety in the city. Speaking to a group of 16 west San Fernando Valley homeowners associations Monday night, the mayor said the other four points in his budget--making the city friendlier, cleaning up its infrastructure, making it more livable and improving government efficiency--would all get considerable attention. But improving safety comes first.

With polite bows east and west, Studio City homeowners have ended a 1 1/2-year dispute over the future of the former Corvallis High School site. Residents have endorsed a plan to convert the 46-year-old high school campus into the American branch of a Japanese trade school. Educators from Osaka Sangyo University in Osaka, Japan, met privately Monday night with 16 Studio City residents to assure them that the satellite campus will be a quiet neighbor.
