December 29, 1991 | Epochal events overseas occurred so quickly as to make the extraordinary seem routine, but there were stories closer to home that brought their own weight to bear upon the lives of residents here in Los Angeles and the cities of the Westside: the growing backlash against the homeless in Santa Monica and other communities, crime, pollution, the incorporation of Malibu, AIDS and slow-growth vs. development. The following is an update of the area's major stories
And now for something completely different--an economic success story. On April 28 the Westside section of The Times reported on Firsts, a new magazine aimed at those interested in collecting modern first editions.

Dancers around the country are slowly learning about Update's AIDS guide. The response is strong in New York and in the South but weaker farther West. New York-based choreographer Kathryn Posin says that "this glut of AIDS info--however basic as it may be--has never been compiled in one booklet for dancers before.

At the American Film Market convention in Santa Monica this week, the North Texas Film Commission euphorically announced that "Oliver Is Back in Dallas." Never mind that director Oliver Stone is there to re-create Dallas' darkest moment, the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Civic pride often fades in the face of Hollywood largess.

But when it comes to the message, Chuckie P.--a.k.a. Chuckie Perez--is miles away from the more famous rap artists of these times. "You think I'm strange 'cause I won't do the wild thing. You call me a fruitie cat," he sings before a crowd at a San Juan Capistrano church.
