"Residents Protest Housing Official's Ouster" in The Times' Valley Edition Feb. 29 caught my eye, a perfect example of why so many Americans have become cynical and disillusioned with their own country. The San Fernando Gardens housing project of 2,000 people is a "low-income apartment complex"--which means that it is partially supported by taxpayers. According to the sign carried in the picture, it is 92% Latinos and 80% "NO Hablan INGLES." They want an interpreter. If 80% of around 2,000 people do not speak English, are they illegal aliens?

Just two months ago, a child-care center serving one of the San Fernando Valley's largest public housing projects seemed doomed to become another victim of tough economic times. But a regional health-care organization has given the program a much-needed $25,000 boost that could help it stay afloat.

In summers past, television and trouble filled most evenings for children at the San Fernando Gardens housing project in Pacoima. So when VISTA volunteer Rosa Roman started making phone calls and knocking on doors, gauging parents' interest in a pilot 4-H club within the housing project, the response overwhelmed her.

Few would deny the possibilities computers can unlock. But a family struggling to put food on the table, or to buy new shoes for the kids, is unlikely to shell out $2,000 for a home computer. It's a disparity that leaves thousands locked out of the digital revolution. That's why the opening of a computer center at the San Fernando Gardens housing project in Pacoima last week is particularly encouraging.

Jesus Vasquez was as brave as a 2-year-old can be as a nurse plunged a needle into his pudgy arm Sunday during a free immunization clinic at the San Fernando Gardens housing project in Pacoima. Minutes before, the wide-eyed toddler watched his 6-year-old sister, Maria, wince and cry as she got her shots. But when his turn came, Jesus' lower lip quivered only slightly as vaccines for everything from polio to meningitis coursed into his veins. And then he got candy.

Maria Jimenez sat patiently Tuesday morning aboard the mobile health-care unit at the San Fernando Gardens housing project. Waiting to see the doctor about a kidney ailment, Jimenez said she came to the unit because doesn't have health insurance and can't afford an office visit. "Hopefully, the doctor here will give me medication for the pain or a referral to another doctor," Jimenez said in Spanish.

The Los Angeles City Council Tuesday voted to close portions of two public streets that intersect the crime-ridden San Fernando Gardens housing project, the first phase of a long-awaited plan to upgrade security. The street closures, approved without debate on a 10-0 vote, are needed to restrict access to the 448-unit project, said David Mays, chief deputy for City Councilman Ernani Bernardi, who represents the area.

The Calvin Klein jackets and Nike sweatshirts were all fake. But the wide eyes and smiles at the San Fernando Gardens housing project in Pacoima were definitely real. Under an unusual arrangement Thursday, city officials donated hundreds of fake designer clothes to the housing project's "Gift of Christmas" giveaway program, which distributes toys, necessities and other goods to low-income families over the winter holidays.

Accompanied by Tarzana resident, actor and former screen heartthrob Billy Hufsey, about 20 children from the San Fernando Gardens city housing project took a ride from Santa Barbara to Glendale on a historic train Tuesday. Paired with the San Fernando Gardens children were kids from various Valley middle schools. The group left the project in the morning by bus and arrived a few hours later in Santa Barbara.
