The American Civil Liberties Union on Tuesday filed suit challenging an ordinance that bars gang members from a San Fernando park where a woman and her three children were wounded in gang cross-fire. The suit, alleging that the ordinance violates rights to free assembly, was filed the day after Pomona adopted a similar measure and as Los Angeles officials are considering a sweeping proposal to counter gang activity in all city parks, beaches and recreation centers.

A controversial ordinance banning gang members from a San Fernando park where a woman and her three small children were wounded by gunfire a year ago has been allowed to expire because city officials say it is no longer necessary. The ordinance banning known gang members from Las Palmas Park ran out at the end of June, San Fernando City Administrator Mary Strenn said.

The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday stepped into the legal battle over banning gang members from public parks, asking park officials and the Sheriff's Department to identify gang-plagued county parks where such a ban should be imposed. Supervisor Mike Antonovich asked that a list of parks "overcome with gang activity" be provided to the board in a month to be considered for a ban similar to the ordinance adopted by the city of San Fernando in September.

A mariachi band and a free buffet highlighted the opening of a Mexican restaurant at the former site of a controversial bar where a battle over a liquor license led the city to adopt the toughest liquor laws in the state. Casa Azteca, which opened Thursday, replaces La Nueva Copa Granada, whose owner, Pancho Valenzuela, in 1992 successfully fought attempts by community groups to deny his nightclub a license to sell hard alcohol.

Slipping into neighborhoods before dawn, scavengers searching curbside trash bins for cardboard, newspapers and aluminum cans are robbing cities and homeowners of valuable commodities and revenue, trash collection officials say. Efforts to crack down on scavengers are under way in Ventura County, Los Angeles and communities throughout the state and nation. Since prices of newsprint and cardboard have gone up eightfold and those of aluminum have doubled in a year, scavengers are out in force.
