Most of the several hundred letters I read each week can best be described as adversarial: They take issue with healthcare reform, the handling of the crisis in Ukraine, politics in Washington and any number of topics where there is little middle ground. Occasionally, an uplifting story will provide some respite from the ceaseless debates. This week, reporter Kurt Streeter's Column One on Jeff Dietrich and Catherine Morris of the Catholic Worker movement - a husband-wife team whose lifelong work has been to "enable" skid row's homeless - did just that.

Last week's powerful earthquake caused relatively minor damage in Valley Village compared to many neighboring communities. While many homes sustained cracks or collapsed chimneys, only three major structures have been red-tagged by city building inspectors as unsafe, said Tom Paterson, a member of the Valley Village Homeowner's Assn. who surveyed the damage. Those include the First Presbyterian Church at Colfax Avenue and Addison Street, and an apartment complex at the same corner.

The first sign of the difficulty facing North Hollywood residents because the community has been split up among as many as five City Council districts surfaced during Wednesday's council meeting. The council delayed final approval of an ordinance severely restricting building in the Valley Village area of North Hollywood because Councilman John Ferraro, who gained part of the area under recent redistricting, said he was unfamiliar with the issue and wanted to study it further.

Not so when the proposed site is near a home or a school. That's what AirTouch Cellular learned at a zoning hearing in Sherman Oaks on Monday.

FOR THE RECORD: An earlier version of this article said that Pat Pope voted for Wendy Greuel.
