Young and old don't always mix. But rarely is it necessary to put up a barrier to keep them apart. Such is the case, however, at the Betty Wilson Center for Seniors in Santa Fe Springs. Recent vandalism has forced city officials to approve construction of a $20,000 fence around the center's patio.

The region's main stock of public parks has been the scene of fierce development battles in recent years, pitting environmental and open-space advocates against educational, arts and recreational interests.
