Chilly and windy overnight temperatures throughout the Antelope, Santa Clarita and San Fernando valleys caused three area emergency homeless shelters to open over the weekend. "Actually it hasn't been cold enough in most areas. They've opened mostly because of wind," said Paul Rossi, program coordinator for the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority, which administers funding for 20 county shelters.

San Fernando Valley home prices jumped 5.6% in February as tight inventories helped reverse a general decline in prices since last August.

Mayoral candidates Steve Soboroff, Joel Wachs and James Hahn have all decided to put their campaign headquarters in the San Fernando Valley, signaling the significant role they expect Valley voters to play in electing the City of Los Angeles' next chief executive. Valley voters made up 48% of all those who went to the polls citywide in the Nov. 7 election, even though the Valley is home to only 38% of the city's registered voters.

Some of the students had never cared about politics before. Others said they had been too busy to register. But faced with their last chance Tuesday, first-timers eager to register to vote crowded around Agnes Goodman's table at Pierce College on Tuesday afternoon. Goodman, vice president of the Valley West Democratic Club in Woodland Hills, happily helped about 35 students fill out their forms. "I didn't think one vote really mattered," said Branden Marks, 20, of West Hills.

Two infestations of the imported red fire ant--more than 1 million strong combined--have been found in the San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles County agricultural officials said Thursday. The ants, which can swarm their victims and inflict painful bites and stings, were located last month at a Mission Hills cemetery and a Chatsworth business. The discovery comes a little more than a year after a single ant was found in a mound near a Van Nuys home.

A divided Los Angeles Planning Commission Thursday recommended the creation of six regional planning panels, including two in the San Fernando Valley, to provide residents with more localized decision-making. Commissioner Rodger Landau said the new system of Area Planning Commissions, scheduled to begin operation July 1 after final approval by the City Council, will bring planning decisions closer to the neighborhoods they affect. "It will keep local planning decisions local," Landau said.

Broadous, president of the San Fernando Valley branch of the NAACP.
