New mother Betty Rivas can't imagine juggling school, work and her baby daughter without the Samuel Dixon Family Health Center in Val Verde. The 16-year-old has no car and little money. If the clinic were to close, she and 2-month-old Vanessa would have to travel 25 miles by bus to the county-operated Olive View-UCLA Medical Center in Sylmar to receive medical care. Her job and her classes at Saugus High School would be disrupted every time her baby needed a checkup or a shot.

A Los Angeles Superior Court judge has ordered the Board of Supervisors to reconsider its approval of a zoning permit to expand the Chiquita Canyon Landfill. Judge Paul Boland issued a 22-page ruling Monday, saying the supervisors failed to properly consider the environmental impact of sedimentation basins needed for the expansion. The basins prevent landfill-tainted water and silt from fouling the local water supply and environment.

As a film sound editor, Mike Clark has a ready illustration of the profound isolation of this unincorporated town of about 2,000. "It's so quiet here, my friends come up from L.A. to record the sound of a passing car," he said, pressing one boot into a bank of mud in front of his storm-ravaged home. "You just can't get that quiet down there. . . . We're the best-kept secret in L.A. County."

With a half-dozen supporters at his side, one of the Santa Clarita Valley's most visible leaders Friday asked a judge for more time before he enters a plea on two felony charges that he falsified court documents. Edwin Seth Brown, a longtime activist in the semirural community of Val Verde, was scheduled to be arraigned in Newhall Municipal Court but was granted a continuance by Judge Adrian Adams to allow his attorney time to better review the case.

Along the dusty back roads of this tiny village just 30 minutes northwest of the bustling San Fernando Valley, life is a daily struggle to survive. Although a sprawling city is nearby, many of the immigrant residents of Val Verde have almost no resources to call upon other than themselves. Even when compared to the struggles of their urban counterparts, life in Val Verde is particularly harsh. There is only one sparsely stocked general store in town.
