Re "Valley Glen Neighbors Celebrate a New Name," July 20. What's wrong with the following sentence from the story about Valley Glen? "Those who turned out . . . counted at least 16 different ethnic groups including Armenians, Japanese, Mexicans, Jews, Italians and Irish from the predominantly middle-class Valley Glen neighborhood." I'm happy about the ethnic diversity in my old neighborhood of Valley Glen, but may I point out that Judaism is a religion and is the only religion you listed.

Authorities are looking for the person who phoned in a shooting threat Thursday that led to the closure of Los Angeles Valley College and a nearby high school in the San Fernando Valley. The caller also accused a 21-year-old former student of making the threat. Authorities interviewed the woman at her Panorama City home after tracking her down. They also searched her apartment but found no weapons. In an interview with  CBS  on Thursday, the former student, identified as Sydnee Lewis, said the caller should be jailed for the hoax.

More than 70% of residents in a section of Van Nuys, between Burbank and Victory boulevards, signed a petition requesting an official name change for the area to Valley Glen. The petition and the request now sit on the desk of Councilman Mike Feuer, who must approve the change to make it official. Feuer has delayed issuing that approval until the matter is discussed at a Dec. 1 meeting of the area's Livable Neighborhood Council.

Marcia Anderson proudly wore a white T-shirt that read "Where the Heck is Valley Glen?" The 51-year-old Valley Glen woman and about 200 other residents attending a picnic Sunday at Erwin Street Park hoped to answer that question.

The volunteers who planted some gangly saplings along Victory Boulevard saw them as a symbol of how things are supposed to work in the new L.A.: A local advisory group identified a way to make its neighborhood a little better, took its idea to local government and government pitched in. Inexplicably, however, someone has been sabotaging Valley Glen's tree-planting project in the dusty medians between Babcock and Goodland avenues.

Part of eastern Van Nuys will be renamed "Valley Glen," Los Angeles City Councilman Mike Feuer announced Monday, ending a years-long debate on the matter that has been called both divisive and unifying. Feuer decided to grant the request of hundreds of residents to put up "Valley Glen" signs along streets leading into their neighborhood with one caveat: He will delay the name change for four months to allow residents of adjacent areas a chance to consider joining Valley Glen.

The city of Los Angeles will consider offering a $50,000 reward to help find the driver who hit and killed an 18-year-old bicyclist.

Re "Firm lobbies, wins state work," Dec. 23 Deloitte Consulting invested (the polite term) $2.2 million in the California political system over the last 10 years and has won contracts worth more than $540 million over that time. Hundreds of millions of those dollars were for projects that were either over budget or abandoned. Deloitte's chump-change investment earned a return of at least 24,545%. To those voters who think public financing of elections is too expensive, I say, think again.

Re "Forget the Fed; new iPhone may pack a stimulus," Business, Sept. 12 This article is a perfect example of what is completely wrong with our economy. We rely on people buying products they do not need at prices they cannot afford and that become obsolete about every two years. We send much of the money to China for the thousands of workers there who make them. If we made our toys here, workers could afford to buy them. Maybe then we could afford to educate our children to understand economics.

Painter Gary Gertzweig worked alone on a quiet Wednesday morning, putting finishing touches on the sunsets, butterflies and roses that dotted the wall in a dusty back alley in Valley Glen. The artist from the North Hollywood-based Earth Harmony Foundation was working on the first of several projects planned for the neighborhood through the city's $3-million Targeted Neighborhood Initiative, a beautification program run out of the mayor's office.
