A homemade crystal ball sits on the principal's desk. Inside it is a vision--a map depicting a hunk of the northeast San Fernando Valley, little dots representing the location of schools. "The San Fernando Learning Village," it's called. Educators call it a "cluster"--a little galaxy formed by a high school and its satellites of middle and elementary schools. But the San Fernando Learning Village, the principal was saying, could be more than a cluster. It could be an entire school district.

The meteorological knockout punch that was supposed to slam into the rain-weary San Fernando Valley, which had borne much of the brunt of last week's storms, landed only a glancing blow Saturday. While the area received a good dousing in the morning, recording 1.07 inches in Encino, hillsides that were weakened by a weeklong series of rainstorms held firm in Woodland Hills, Lake View Terrace, and the Santa Clarita and Antelope valleys.

When Bill and Barbara Harsted put their three-bedroom Norwalk house on the market last month, they expected it would go in a snap. After all, the house was well-kept and affordably priced, in a Southern California market where bidding wars on homes are not uncommon. Then came the reality check. The couple, already in escrow on a new home in nearby La Mirada, sweated it out for a couple of weeks while their 1,150-square-foot house created barely a ripple on the market.
