A brawl involving nearly 500 students erupted Tuesday at Grant High School, officials said. One school police officer and five students were treated for minor injuries. "They've had Hispanic and Armenian strife going on for a while now, and this is possibly related," said school police Sgt. Hector Rodriguez. Officers arrived on campus during the melee about 11:45 a.m. and restored order in about 15 minutes, he said.

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.

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. Residents of the mostly middle-class community of 22,000 people realize that their neighborhood is little-known to most Angelenos. The picnic, sponsored by the Valley Glen Neighborhood Assn.

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.

Dozens of people turned out Sunday to attend a celebration that included vows, a name change, good food and the promise of a long future together. But if you're thinking summer wedding, think again. It was the christening of a new neighborhood that drew scores to a street party in what used to be known as Van Nuys, but has been renamed Valley Glen. Valley Glen is bounded by portions of Woodman Avenue and Coldwater Canyon, Sherman Way and Burbank Boulevard.

The signs went up Wednesday and Valley Glen became official, ending a years-long process to allow the neighborhood to separate from Van Nuys. "It makes us feel proud to belong to something special," said Peer Ghent, president of the Valley Glen Neighborhood Assn. "For all the projects we do, it gives us a better sense of being a neighborhood and a community."

Even to those who didn't know her, the death of ice cream vendor Carolyn LaFleur hit close to home. For many of us, ice cream trucks with their summer soundtrack evoke memories of a time when all we wanted from life was an orange Dreamsicle. And we got it. That's what LaFleur did seven days a week for 25 years: deliver dreams in the form of Popsicles and ice cream bars.
