Rick Munoz, who grew up in Pacoima kickin' it in the park with friends who would become anti-gang activists and world-class kick boxers, ignored the pleas of his mother and entered the entertainment business. Not too long ago, the Northridge filmmaker was approached by an industry executive who was eager to make a film that would reach the growing Latino audience. Do anything, the executive told Munoz, and we'll pay for it.

The city will pay the officer's salary with help from a three-year, $125,000 grant from the U.S. Justice Department's COPS in Schools program.

Dozens of pregnant women, mothers pushing strollers, mothers leading young children by the hand, and some fathers and sons, marched half a mile down Laurel Canyon Boulevard on Saturday to call for an end to gang violence in the community. Dubbed the Mothers' March for Peace, more than 250 people were led to Ritchie Valens Park by William "Blinky" Rodriguez, who lost a teenage son to gang violence in 1990 and brokered a historic truce between Valley gang members in October 1993.

Since then, the Pointers have been bent on redeeming themselves.

The northeast San Fernando Valley has its share of problems, as the above editorial on the need for health care services makes clear. Some of its neighborhoods are among the poorest in Los Angeles. But the northeast Valley is also home to well-kept and tight-knit communities, places where people know their neighbors and take pride in their neighborhoods. That community pride will be on display today at the California Fiesta in Mission Hills' Brand Park, opposite the San Fernando Mission.
