Bojana Zdraljevic fled with her family to the United States in 1991, only days before civil war broke out in Yugoslavia. Soon after her arrival here, Zdraljevic joined the Girl Scouts and became part of a nurturing group that she said is like a second family. Now 18 and a senior at El Camino Real High School in Woodland Hills, she's president of her troop and working to complete requirements for a Gold Award, Girl Scouting's highest honor achieved by community service.

Two cold-weather shelters will open Sunday in the San Fernando Valley to offer homeless people hot meals and a place to sleep on winter nights. Advocates for the homeless say they expect the need for refuge to match or exceed last winter's as the effects of the Sept. 11 tragedy continue to be felt on the economy. The shelters, part of a network of government-funded winter shelters in Los Angeles County, will be set up nightly at National Guard armories in Glendale and Sylmar.
