Eight years ago, a shotgun blast rang out at Las Palmas Park during a gang shootout. A mother and her three young children lay bleeding from pellet wounds. The family survived the shooting, and a galvanized City Council approved a temporary, controversial ordinance keeping all known gang members out of Las Palmas. Since then, officials and residents have slowly cleaned and expanded the park.

When librarian Judith Babka walked into her branch in San Fernando the day after the Northridge earthquake, she found microfiche machines dangling by their cords and paperbacks spit out of their exploded revolving racks. Bookshelves had collapsed and books were strewn everywhere. "It was like a tornado had gone through. There was nothing like it," Babka said. "Most of it was just books everywhere--books, videos, two or three feet deep in the library."

The youngsters who come to play after school at tiny Layne Park in San Fernando don't mind that somebody lost their baseball. They found an old tennis ball to pitch instead. They don't care that the bat they play with is just a stick of wood.

A series of measures to improve parking near the Civic Center will be implemented in coming months, including the expansion of parking time limits near the county courthouse.

The city of San Fernando's first roller hockey rink has opened in previously under-used Pioneer Park. Built almost entirely with volunteer labor and donated construction materials, the rink, about 150 by 80 feet, features a resurfaced asphalt floor and wood frame topped with chain-link fencing to prevent the hockey puck from escaping. The rink was built at the suggestion of City Councilman Ray Ojeda, who got the idea after chatting with in-line skaters playing hockey on city streets.
