The Sherman Oaks Galleria has settled an eviction dispute with Robinsons-May, its largest tenant, signing an agreement that paves the way for a major renovation of the mall. Formerly prosperous and celebrated as a teen hangout in such movies as "Valley Girl" and "Fast Times at Ridgemont High," the Galleria was the subject of rival lawsuits that sought to assign blame for a decline that transformed the 19-year-old mall from a shopping mecca to a moribund money-loser.

"A hate incident report was made and we're investigating it," Det. Kevin Harley of the LAPD's North Hollywood Division said Friday.

The Sherman Oaks Galleria will seek city approval for a multimillion-dollar renovation plan that would add an open-air plaza and expand dining and entertainment facilities, mall officials said Wednesday. City planning officials must examine architectural designs to approve a zoning change for the project, which officials said is still in the conceptual phase. "We're at such preliminary stages, we don't even have design drawings at this point," said mall General Manager Joy M. DeBacker.

Every year, as the summer draws to a close, shopping malls across the San Fernando Valley gear up for the Labor Day weekend onslaught of bargain hunters in search of back-to-school deals. But this year, because the Northridge earthquake knocked several malls temporarily out of business, the surviving malls are expecting the traditionally hectic weekend to be even busier than usual.

Just months after his release from jail on a statutory rape conviction--and weeks after a judge declined to revoke the man's probation--a 19-year-old Ventura man is again in custody on suspicion of rape. Authorities say Britton White raped an 18-year-old woman in a dressing room at The Oaks shopping center Sunday afternoon. Investigators arrested White inside the mall nearly an hour after the alleged attack. He is being held in lieu of $110,000 bail at the Ventura County Jail.

Plans for a 45-story, wisp-thin tower of ultra-luxury condominiums between Beverly Hills High School and the Los Angeles Country Club are set to be unveiled today. Developers say it would be one of the most expensive residential buildings in the West. The $400-million tower along one of the area's toniest corridors would be the first building in California designed by renowned Paris architect Jean Nouvel, known for his daring designs.

Anthony Turner is one reason why California's employment picture is brightening, if only a bit. The 24-year-old Culver City resident went three months without a full-time job--until this week, when he nailed down a salaried position with Norwest Financial Services Inc. in Van Nuys, where he'll train to be a credit manager. "You can't believe the burden that has been lifted off of my shoulders," said Turner, previously a buyer for a San Diego electronics company.
