There are at least 34 street gangs with a total of 5,000 members within the Los Angeles Police Department's Foothill Division. One such gang has terrorized the San Fernando Gardens housing project for years, and police say that it has been responsible for robberies, drug dealing and even murder. Is it possible that at least a small percentage of these youths can be reclaimed and taught to believe in a future that does not involve violent street gangs?

Nearly seven years ago, a crack cocaine dealer convicted of drug charges four times in 12 years embarked on the toughest task of his life: to transform himself from neighborhood leech to local hero. By all accounts, Bobbie Marshall's turnaround succeeded. Now, Marshall may be facing even longer odds. He will try to convince the nation's top law enforcement officials, including Atty. Gen. Janet Reno, that his nine-year prison sentence should be commuted.

More than 50 residents of the San Fernando Gardens housing project demonstrated Friday in support of the project's former community services director, who says he was forced to resign because he had urged the city of Los Angeles to hire a bilingual job development coordinator for the low-income apartment complex. Carrying placards, the protesters, with children in tow, listened to speeches in front of the community services center in support of Al Ortiz, who resigned in November.

Call them hauntrepreneurs. They're working afternoons, evenings and weekends to turn a Pacoima park gym into a "haunt ed house" with rooms labeled "Torture Chamber," "Night of the Living Dead," "Exorcist" and "Backyard Grave Yard." For $1-$2, local children and others are invited to tour the "Nightmare on Herrick Avenue," an effort designed and created by former and active gang members in Pacoima.

With more than three-quarters of the votes counted, Fire Capt. Lyle Hall and former mayoral aide Richard Alarcon emerged as the leaders Tuesday in the crowded race to succeed Los Angeles City Councilman Ernani Bernardi, setting up a runoff battle. Alarcon, if he wins the runoff for the northeastern San Fernando Valley seat, would be the first Latino council member from the Valley. Hall, who forced Bernardi into a runoff in a 1989 contest, led the seven-candidate pack.
