Short-handed and strapped for cash, the manager of the Ramona Gardens recreation center turned to a most unlikely source to rid his aging Boyle Heights facility of graffiti: gang members. The gang members agreed to help, using donated paint from an adjacent housing project to cover scrawls in the restrooms, weight room and entryway. The gang members even posted signs, warning that anyone who vandalized the center would suffer their wrath.

The Los Angeles City Council on Friday approved a $34-million government center for the San Fernando Valley--a project that both secessionists and foes claimed as a symbol of their conflicting causes. More than a decade in the works, the Marvin Braude San Fernando Valley Constituent Service Center, named after the former councilman, will consolidate many city offices spread throughout the Valley into one three-story structure in Van Nuys.

Short-handed and strapped for cash, the manager of the Ramona Gardens Recreation Center recently turned to a most unlikely source to help rid his aging Boyle Heights facility of graffiti: gang members.

With a carrot-breaking ceremony rather than a ribbon cutting, the San Fernando Valley's Volunteer Center on Saturday kicked off its new weekly farmers market with the aim of raising funds and using fresh produce to promote good nutrition and health to an underserved area. In addition to the usual array of farm-fresh greens, just-picked berries and vine-ripened tomatoes, Farmers' Place has a booth devoted to cancer prevention and another set up for free immunizations for children.
