In an office on the fourth floor of the Van Nuys municipal building, R. Vance Baugham spends each Tuesday trying to jump-start international trade. The manager of the San Fernando Valley trade office is holding seminars. He's attending meetings. He's planning publicity mailings. He says he's running at full speed all over the Valley, trying to help local businesses navigate the intricacies of overseas trade. But it's hard to spread the word one day a week.

Stanley (Peanut Head) Bryant never fired a shot, but a jury in Downtown Los Angeles on Monday determined that the San Fernando Valley drug lord should die for masterminding a bloody 1988 crack-house ambush that killed four people, including a mother and child. The jury of seven men and five women also delivered two death verdicts against Donald (Duke) Smith, an employee of the ruthless, Pacoima-based drug syndicate that prosecutors say Bryant ran with his brother, Jeff.

During production of the 1997 movie "Mimic," American Humane Assn. representatives wandered through the Los Angeles set, ensuring that a herd of cockroaches was well taken care of. Licensed animal handlers were to follow state and federal anti-cruelty laws designed to protect the insects, which had been trained to swirl around actress Mira Sorvino's feet. The roaches had to be fed at a certain time. They could only work a few hours each day. They could not be harmed. At the same time, in studios in the San Fernando Valley, scores of other actors and actresses were working on movies.

Two-year-old Chemise English would hardly have made a reliable informant. But a killer bent on eliminating all witnesses to a gun battle at a reputed Lake View Terrace cocaine cash house last August executed her anyway with a bullet in the back of the head. It didn't matter that Chemise was sitting idly in a car outside the house with her mother, Loretha Anderson, while neighbors washed their cars and read the Sunday paper on their porches. After an ambush slaying of two of Anderson's male friends, the killer ran to the car, sprayed it with gunfire and climbed in to shoot the toddler with a pistol.
