A Sepulveda crosswalk where four schoolchildren have been hit by cars since September will soon get a traffic light after more than a decade of complaints from parents and a recent nudge from Mayor Tom Bradley. The city Department of Transportation said Tuesday that it will install a traffic light in front of Sepulveda Junior High School as soon as possible. The announcement came three weeks after a 12-year-old boy was struck and suffered a broken leg.

I would like to thank Pamela Moreland for her recent articles on education issues, especially the one about Sepulveda Junior High School ("Sepulveda School Fields Academic 'A' Team;" April 2, 1987). If highlights and successes regarding public education were reported, instead of the "low lights," the budget for education that our governor developed would be easily vetoed. Equally important, voter apathy would be replaced with enthusiastic support for continuing outstanding educational programs and improving and / or changing those weaker areas requiring attention.

School administrators will again ask the city to install traffic lights at a crosswalk in front of Sepulveda Junior High School, where four students have been hit by cars since September. The most recent incident occurred Tuesday when a 12-year-old boy suffered a broken leg after he was struck by a car while walking to school. Police are searching for the driver, who allegedly stopped to check on the boy, then left without identifying himself.

A Sepulveda Junior High School science teacher was arrested in connection with allegations that he fondled four female students while measuring them for Cadet Corps uniforms, Los Angeles police said Friday. Jerry Estaville, 34, was arrested at his Chatsworth home on eight counts of misdemeanor child annoyance, which is less serious than child molestation, and eight counts of misdemeanor battery, Detective Ken Buscarino said. Estaville, who could not be reached for comment, taught science and Cadet Corps, a junior high school version of the Reserve Officer Training Corps.

Los Angeles Board of Education candidate Jerry Horowitz charged Wednesday that incumbent Julie Korenstein has alienated parents and caused them to lose faith in their local schools. Korenstein "has allowed the situation in the West Valley schools to disintegrate to the point where parents are not only disenchanted with our schools but actively seek means to have their children educated elsewhere," Horowitz said during a news conference at Sepulveda Junior High School. Six parents who support Horowitz attended the news conference to talk about their dissatisfaction with Korenstein and their complaints about bad teachers, school violence and overcrowding.

About 200 Sepulveda Junior High School students Friday planted sycamore saplings in a campus garden in memory of two classmates with disparate life styles--an honor student who died in a bizarre playground accident and a gang member who was stabbed to death. Although the two boys did not know each other at the school, which has more than 2,000 students, their friends decided that the trees will be a "beautiful reminder" of Michael Ahn and Manuel Pena, said Jill Preston, a student leader.

Catherine Campos, the ninth-grade class president at Sepulveda Junior High School, hopes to beef up her leadership and public speaking skills when she attends a conference for 240 Latino middle school students from across the San Fernando Valley on Saturday.
