Foreclosures in the San Fernando Valley, already at an all-time high, could surge in the coming months because the earthquake has left thousands of people with significant or irreparable damage to their homes.

Then he knew the game was over. After eluding authorities for nearly three years, Settle, who was to be added later this week to the FBI's 10-most-wanted list, was arrested in connection with the shooting deaths of four people at a Lake View Terrace crack house.

The scrutiny Mary Miller endured 10 years ago as the first black person to move into a Los Feliz condominium building was disquieting. It seemed to her that every move she made, every word she spoke, was examined by residents made uneasy by her presence. Today, she said, her neighbors acknowledge their past wariness.
