The Valley Community Clinic, which turned 25 recently, will mark its biggest expansion since moving to its current location nine years ago with an open house Monday evening. A privately funded, nonprofit clinic, Valley Community is adding about 2,300 square feet to its 9,000-square-foot facility at 5648 Vineland Ave. More examination rooms and optometry services are the most prominent features of the new space. There also is a medical history room and a clinician consulting room.

Valley Community Clinic in North Hollywood is hard to miss. A brightly colored Tim Fields mural is splashed across the front of the building, inviting patients to enter.

Sex was the topic in Peggy Johnson's classroom Wednesday at the Amelia Earhart Continuation School in North Hollywood. Sex, babies and condoms. Yet there wasn't the usual giggling or cynicism among the two dozen teen-agers who sat in the room. Sex, they understood, is serious business, as they debated issues of responsibility and sexuality with two teen-agers who led the discussion while Johnson stood silently in the back of the room.

In the first program of its kind in Los Angeles County, a group of judges in Van Nuys Municipal Court are sentencing people convicted of misdemeanor sex crimes to attend AIDS-prevention classes as a condition of probation. The program--which will soon be expanded into other courts under a new state law--is an attempt to teach safe sex measures to people with a high risk of contracting AIDS.

When the Valley Community Clinic in North Hollywood first opened its teen clinic to males in 1993, young men were supposed to walk through the doors for free birth control and counseling on how to prevent pregnancy and disease transmission. "It was a disaster," said Connie Kruzan, director of youth services at the clinic. She said the guys simply didn't show up. The few men who did trickle in were accompanying their girlfriends. "And what do they see when they come in?
