President George Bush wants to plant 1 billion trees in America this year, 10 billion by the year 2000. Mayor Tom Bradley has pledged to plant 3 to 5 million in Los Angeles. Yet on Rose Avenue in Venice, my local community group had trouble planting 20 trees. Our project began in the fall of 1987. Venice was a battle zone.

More than 10 others were injured in attacks in the county. "For whatever reason, it's been a pretty violent weekend," said Sgt. Rich Pena of the L.A. County Sheriff's Department. "I was thinking, 'For gosh sakes, what's going on here? Is it the last night of summer or what?

Re "Venice's new bloom," Column One, Dec. 11 When I moved to Venice almost 20 years ago, I still heard the occasional gunshot at night. My reaction was, "Yes, I am in Venice!" The edge of danger was part of Venice's charm. I'm in my late 50s, and when I walk down Abbot Kinney now, I feel 300 years old. Silicon Beach has moved in and has transformed Venice into yet another hipster haven. The pretty little cottages are being torn down for lot-line-to-lot-line homes, designed like fortresses with high walls and hedges that destroy the friendly community that characterized our streets.

On most mornings, there are at least two places where business is bustling on Rose Avenue in Venice. One is a chic cafe near the beach where stylish people buy croissants and gourmet coffee. The other is the sparsely furnished social service center down the street where desperate people get handouts. The economic gap between the two groups could not be much wider. But though they are socially estranged, they are not strangers.

Step inside the Rose Market near the corner of Rose and 5th avenues in Venice, and make your way to the refrigerator in the back. Small orange price stickers say that $3.50 will get you 40 ounces of Bud Light. To pay, slide your money through a slot to a cashier who sits behind bulletproof glass. Take 10 steps west and you're staring at a funky building that looks as if it's been covered with moon rocks. At Moon Juice, $3.50 will buy you just a two-ounce shot of a detoxifying acid mineral complex called "Liquid Light" and a bit of change for the tip jar. If you want a full glass of organic cold-pressed "Gracious Greens" juice, it'll cost you $12. To pay, hand your money to young workers who give each other massages behind the counter while serving their customers.

Ignoring veiled threats of a lawsuit by Camarillo, the Oxnard City Council has approved construction of another shopping center along the Ventura Freeway despite complaints that it would create traffic problems for neighboring cities. After a rambling two-hour discussion that began Tuesday shortly before midnight, council members approved 5 to 0 the first phase of Shopping at the Rose II--a 223,000-square-foot retail complex at Rose Avenue.

Along Rose Avenue in north Oxnard, a stately row of eucalyptus trees--many lifeless with bare limbs--stands at the heart of a dispute among the city, one of its founding families and a $110-million hospital nearby. Ravaged by beetles, the trees are slated to be removed in the next few months, a leveling city officials say is necessary to keep weakened trunks from crashing down on passing cars. No one disputes that the 400 or so trees must come down.

Despite objections by neighboring cities and state highway officials, Oxnard's new land-use panel has approved plans for another large shopping center along the Ventura Freeway. The land-use advisers, a five-member panel created in January to replace the Oxnard Planning Commission, voted 4 to 1 to clear the way for Shopping at the Rose II--a 223,000-square-foot retail complex at Rose Avenue. It still requires City Council approval.

Concerned about safety and aircraft emissions, the Los Angeles City Council on Wednesday called for federal legislation that would change the takeoff route from Santa Monica Airport and close all six of its flight schools. The resolution, which is not binding on Santa Monica or the Federal Aviation Administration, represents part of a broader strategy to shut down the popular aviation hub by 2015, when opponents believe federal requirements expire. "An airport makes no sense in that urban environment with all the noise, air pollution and flights over neighborhoods," said Councilman Bill Rosendahl, who offered the resolution along with his colleagues Janice Hahn and Paul Koretz.

With the Rose Avenue interchange an $18.5-million morass of closed offramps and traffic-clogged roads, some stores at nearby retail centers are reporting sliding sales as leery shoppers avoid the area. Some dealerships in the Oxnard Auto Center report that revenues have plunged as much as 15%, which could mean a hefty loss of sales tax receipts for the city.
