A total of 925 single-family homes in the San Fernando Valley were sold in March, a 14% jump from a year ago, and it marked the best month for home sales since August, according to figures released Monday by the San Fernando Valley Assn. of Realtors. The steady rebound in home sales so far this year came at the cost of a continued decline in prices. Last month, the median sales price for single-family homes was $157,500, down 7% from $169,500 in March, 1995.

The San Fernando Valley will be slightly cooler but pleasant during the early part of this week, warming up again for the July 4 weekend. "That's pretty much normal for the end of June," said Bruce Rockwell, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Oxnard. A weak low-pressure front had swept through the area late Saturday, bringing the cooling effects of sea breezes and clouds, but no rain, Rockwell said.

Los Angeles County will sponsor a free seminar Wednesday for Valley residents who believe their taxes should be lowered due to a decline in the value of their property. Zev Yaroslavsky, chairman and Valley representative of the Board of Supervisors, said the board scheduled the seminar--along with five others countywide--in response to the filing of more than 100,000 assessment appeals in fiscal 1996-97. Many residents are confused by the assessment appeals process, he said.

Seven San Fernando Valley students will test their world knowledge Friday in the state-level National Geography Bee in Sacramento. Before getting to this point, these geography whiz kids had to know that the Amazon River carries more water than the combined flow of the Mississippi, Nile and Congo rivers. And that Fulani, Hausa and Ibo are among the many languages spoken in Africa.

Just out of curiosity, how many Solley's customers who will now be eating at Jerry's Famous Deli also received a note with their First Interstate statement that next month's bill will say Wells Fargo and show a stagecoach; and also a Macy's bill instead of a Bullock's bill? And pretty soon we'll all be living in San Fernando Valley, CA 91499. RICK ROFMAN Van Nuys

Will the day ever come when mail is postmarked "San Fernando Valley, CA"? Many Valley residents already feel separate from Los Angeles. And many non-Valley urbanites view the Valley the same way. Actual secession has even been discussed in the past. In terms of size and services, the Valley could certainly hold its own against other large cities. If it were a city, the Valley's population size would rank sixth in the country. It would cover about the same square-mile area as Chicago.
