Rose Castaneda recalls that she was seeking emotional refuge from the violence that plagued the northeast San Fernando Valley when she first went to work for Rep. Howard L. Berman (D-Panorama City) as a receptionist in 1986. She took a pay cut to leave her job as a social services director in the Van Nuys Pierce Park Apartments after attending a funeral for a young man felled by gang violence.

Thank you for publishing that wonderful tribute to one of the most compassionate and courageous people that I have ever met: Rose Castaneda ("Unlikely Path to Success Paved by a Gift for Caring About People," Times Valley Edition, April 13). I am deeply grateful to Rose for her spunky intercession in a frustrating immigration problem endured by my Filipina wife. During several hours at Howard Berman's Valley headquarters, I also had ample opportunity to observe her helping many others with difficult problems.

Just days after she fought her way back into the race to succeed City Councilman Ernani Bernardi, congressional aide Rose Castaneda dropped out Monday, saying she had entered too late to assemble an effective campaign. "In hindsight, I can see that I should have begun preparations for a campaign and become a candidate much earlier," she said. "I did not do that because I was trying to complete ongoing projects that I hated to leave in midstream."

City and federal officials Wednesday hammered out a tentative agreement with a former jockey to rebuild the Hansen Dam Equestrian Center in Lake View Terrace. The accord among Eddie Milligan, the U.S Army Corps of Engineers and city Department of Recreation and Parks appears to end almost four years of jurisdictional battles over the facility, located on a federal flood basin.

Nine-year-old Richard Thompson said he's going to learn how to "cook stuff on a fire." His pal, Javier Avilos, is raring to "ride horses all around the grass." Another boy said he wants to make "backpacks out of a jacket." The three boys live in Van Nuys Pierce Park Apartments, a 430-unit project in Pacoima, but finding those rural activities will be easy next week--all they'll have to do is walk over to a "campground" in the courtyard of the complex.
