“I used to think it wasn't all about the horses,” a member of the Shadow Hills Property Owners Assn. told all four candidates for the Los Angeles City Council's 7th District . The statement drew some quizzical looks from the several dozen other members of the group, gathered for a Jan. 22 City Council candidate forum. Not all about the horses? And then he added: “But it is. I admit it.” That's more like it. VIDEO: Interviews with L.A.'s mayoral candidates Shadow Hills is part of the city of Los Angeles, as much as that fact may irk the residents there, and it is part of the 7th District in the Northeast San Fernando Valley, which on March 5 will elect a new member to succeed Richard Alarcon.

The roses and birds of paradise that Virginia Hernandez planted around her Shadow Hills home are long gone, but her family remains. "We walk in and out of that house because we refuse to give up on each other," said Susan Romero, a daughter of Hernandez, who was killed in November 1994 by an unknown assailant. The 62-year-old housewife was found dead of a single gunshot wound to the head just inside the door of her isolated Johanna Avenue home in Shadow Hills.

She did not belong to the inmate who called from county jail. Nor was she the stolen property of a Van Nuys man. She was simply a gift who wandered away from home. After a frustrating three-week search for the rightful owner, the mystery of the missing iguana was solved Tuesday by a teen-age boy who was reunited with his long-lost pal.

Susan Romero, her father and her siblings have placed their hopes on a $25,000 reward and a bit of publicity that may garner something they have not had since Virginia Hernandez was slain in November--answers. "We're not getting answers at all," said Romero, a Palmdale resident. "My mother was just a mother; she was just a housewife."

Despite heated opposition from about 40 homeowners, the Los Angeles Board of Zoning Appeals on Tuesday cleared the way for a $2.5-million Romanian Orthodox church complex to be built in rural Shadow Hills. The appeals board voted 3 to 1 to overturn a zoning administrator's decision last December to deny a permit for the Holy Trinity Romanian Orthodox Church to build the 5,000-square-foot Byzantine-style complex on eight acres of hilly property at 10500 Wentworth St.
