The Los Angeles City Council agreed Friday to chip in $20,000 for a project that will use mostly private funds to install street lights in a Pacoima neighborhood. The Los Angeles Neighborhood Housing Services Corp., a nonprofit organization that provides home loans to low-income residents, proposed the project for an unlit residential area near the intersection of the Foothill and Ronald Reagan freeways.

On Saturday, she smacked her hands and bobbed her head to the sounds of unity at a performance organized to encourage Pacoima's different ethnic groups, mostly Latino, black and Asian, to work together on improving their northeast Valley community. "I love Pacoima," Cooper said.
