Canyon High School's Renisa Andika spent class time last week touring Sand Canyon, checking which roads had flooded from steady rains. Her classmate, Tammy Patterson, prepared documents for a Santa Clarita City Council meeting, while Hart High School's Lital Barkan reviewed state and federal legislation that could affect the city. The three seniors were among 30 students from area high schools who participated in the city's fourth annual Youth in Government Day.

Nowhere in the country is there a precedent for San Fernando Valley secession. Los Angeles would be the first major American city to slice itself in two. Where, then, can architects of the proposed Valley city turn for a model? Across the Santa Susana Mountains in the 14-year-old city of Santa Clarita. It's by no means a perfect model. The San Fernando Valley, home to 1.4 million people, has nine times the population.

Proponents of a Santa Clarita slow-growth measure said Monday that a campaign flyer distributed by opponents of the measure is deliberately misleading, contending it uses a logo that makes it appear to have been printed by the city government. But Santa Clarita City Atty. Carl Newton, saying the logo bears no resemblance to the official municipal letterhead, refused to ask the group that printed the flyer to stop circulating it. About 15,000 copies have already been distributed.

Accusing Santa Clarita officials of hypocrisy, supporters of the area's gay and lesbian community on Wednesday will protest a city-hosted, countywide conference on human relations. Activists say they are angered by the City Council's refusal to grant benefits to domestic partners of city employees, even though county workers, who provide contract services for the city, receive such benefits.

A Los Angeles Superior Court judge has ruled that Tenneco Oil Co. can continue building a power plant in Newhall despite objections from the city of Santa Clarita. Judge Miriam A. Vogel agreed with Santa Clarita officials, who ordered Tenneco to stop work on the $35-million plant Sept. 1, that building permits for the project were issued by mistake. But Vogel said the company obtained the permits in good faith and should not be penalized for the error.

It's a routine Tuesday night City Council meeting. But like die-hard fans at the end of a losing season, a handful of citizens show up anyway. A large man wearing a dark gray suit sits at one end of the second row, filling out requests to address the council on several topics. He treats the room like a second home, adjusting the thermostat and moving portable seats and folding tables out of his way.

The City Council election may be three months away, but a fresh set of faces were in the council chambers Tuesday voting on city issues. They were some of the 43 teen-agers who went behind the scenes of local government via Santa Clarita's Youth In Government program, shadowing city employees and helping them perform their daily duties. Activities culminated in a meeting by the student equivalent of the City Council in which they put knowledge from their hands-on lessons into practice.

As lyrical as it is, in the eyes of members of the City Council the name of the city of Santa Clarita is not enough. So city leaders are turning to residents to help them come up with a motto that will sum up the upstart town's dreams, self-image and philosophy and be used on city letterhead and signs.

Computer wizards want to make Santa Clarita user-friendly. They joined local activists, some of whom are computer novices more likely to associate Macintosh with apples, at an unusual luncheon the city held Tuesday to gather their, well, input. Santa Clarita officials--who once held a luncheon for hairdressers to hear what their clients said about city government--collected data over $95 worth of sandwiches and cookies on how the city can make it easier for residents to hook up with City Hall.

The Los Angeles City Council this week tossed a surprise development into Santa Clarita's long-sought drive to gain greater control over development. The council decided unanimously on Tuesday to order L.A. city officials to prepare and submit an application to a state agency to claim unincorporated county territory for future expansion.
