Tonight's Valley Mission League battle between crosstown rivals Sylmar and San Fernando has all the intensity of a playoff game and the first half lived up to the hype.  The stands on both sides are filled to overflowing and the fans have had plenty to cheer about.  Sylmar pulled even late in the half, 14-14, on a 20-yard pass from Clarence Williams to Anthony Muse. Williams is 7-of-12 for 94 yards.  Quarterback Cristian Solano has been sacked five times and has completed only six of 18 passes, but he scored on runs of three and 11 yards and added a two-point conversion for San Fernando, which hopes to claim the Victory Cup for the first time.

Mexican-Style Square at Heart of City Revitalization Proposal The creation of a "zocalo," or a Mexican-style downtown square where people can mill about while mariachis stroll by, lies at the heart of an ambitious plan by a Pacoima developer to revitalize part of San Fernando's downtown commercial district. The proposed zocalo project also calls for a movie theater, shops and restaurants to flank the public plaza in an attempt to lure pedestrians to the downtown San Fernando Mall area.

In a vintage baseball staredown on Saturday afternoon at Dodger Stadium, the best pitcher in the City Section, left-hander Jack Hartman of Reseda Cleveland, stood on the mound and faced off three times against the best hitter, Roberto Ramos of San Fernando. Hartman refused to back off from the challenge. On each at-bat, he got two strikes against the left-handed-hitting Ramos. And each time, the 6-foot-4, 230-pound Ramos delivered a hard-hit single, the last coming in the bottom of the sixth inning to drive in the tie-breaking run and lift San Fernando past Cleveland, 2-1, in the Division I championship game.

"They know the importance of this game," San Fernando Coach Robert Garcia said. San Fernando will try to put some pressure on Sylmar sophomore quarterback Clarence Williams. "They're fast and they're young," Garcia said.

 When San Fernando was on its way to winning the City Section Divison I championship last season, the Tigers were relying on pitching and defense. Now Sylmar (13-3, 5-0) is showing the Tigers how it's done. On Tuesday in the first game of a big two-game Valley Mission League series, pitcher Victor Ramirez allowed three hits, struck out four and walked none in Sylmar's 2-0 victory over San Fernando. The Spartans handed two-time All-City pitcher Alonzo Garcia his first-ever loss in league play over the last three seasons.

They are not as familiar as the freeways, but Southern California's major faults -- such as the San Andreas, Newport-Inglewood and San Fernando -- have become familiar markers on the local landscape. But Monday's 4.4 earthquake in Encino is a reminder that the seismic danger extends well beyond those fault lines. The quake, which caused no damage but was the largest in the Los Angeles area in four years, erupted on a little-noticed fault deep under the Santa Monica Mountains. The temblor surprised seismologists because it was the strongest to hit directly under the Santa Monica Mountains in the 80 years "since we started recording earthquakes in Southern California," Caltech seismologist Egill Hauksson said.

Juan Gallardo's three-run home run in the fifth inning wiped out a 2-0 deficit and enabled Banning (4-2) to inflict a rare defeat on All-City pitcher Alonzo Garcia, whose career record is 24-4. Justin Yanez, a junior pitcher, struck out 10 and allowed four hits.

Federal biologists clad in waders and armed with long-handled nets this week moved hundreds of red-legged frog eggs from a San Fernando Valley stream to carefully selected wetlands 10 miles away in the first attempt to expand the threatened species' range in Southern California. Five hundred eggs transported from the Upper Las Virgenes Canyon Open Space Preserve to the Santa Monica Mountains are expected to hatch any day. When they do, they will reintroduce red-legged frog tadpoles to historic haunts that are free of predatory fish, snails and crayfish that could tear them apart.
