Complete with new playground equipment and restroom doors, the portion of North Hollywood Park west of the Hollywood Freeway has been christened Valley Village Park. "It takes a village to make things like this happen," said Valley Village Homeowners Assn. President Lori Dinkin, paraphrasing First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton. "We're just really proud of it." The dedication of the park came after nearly 300 people gathered for a Fourth of July parade and celebration on Saturday.

Standing outside her home on Hesby Street, Breice Reiner points to a new house a block away as an example of the mansionization creeping into her Valley Village neighborhood of nearly 45 years. "This is a box," said Reiner, vice president of the homeowners association. "This is not an articulated home." Reiner and others argue that the oversized structures -- many built on small lots and stretching up to 5,000 square feet -- are ruining the character of their suburban community.

Yet another group of Valley residents is petitioning for a new neighborhood name, but this time the petitioners say the idea wasn't really theirs. "It's not that we decided we want to become something else, we've just been ousted, albeit accidentally," North Hollywood resident Steven Cerveris said. When the community of Valley Village was formed from North Hollywood, a three-block patch of houses, including Cerveris', was not included. "We just figured it was an oversight," he said.

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.

Since the expensive little enclave of Valley Village was built more than half a century ago, its residents have never really felt a part of North Hollywood, no matter what the maps said. To outsiders, it was just another nameless neighborhood squeezed into a blue-collar part of San Fernando Valley. On Tuesday, city officials and leaders of local homeowners groups watched with satisfaction as city crews installed signs that ended their identity crisis.

As the San Fernando Valley goes, so goes North Hollywood, only sooner. The changes that swept across the Valley in the 1980s, sharply altering the face of what was once everyone's idea of what a suburb should look like, were even more pronounced in North Hollywood, a Times analysis of new U.S. Census Bureau figures indicates.

Two new cookbooks give a glimpse of the variety of Jewish food in Southern California. In "The Low-Fat Jewish Cookbook" (Clarkson Potter, $24.95), local author Faye Levy proves that cutting the fat out of Jewish food isn't as difficult as it might seem if you pay attention to flavor and look beyond traditional Eastern European classics for inspiration. A smaller, more personal project is "Festival of Delights: A Celebration of Food, Festivals and Family" (Sisterhood of Temple Beth Hillel, $17.

They have learned how life unfolds in giant waves. With such force, Catherine Curry-Williams and Scott Williams were carried, first to joy when son Shane Alexander was born, then to a place deep and binding, a chasm without words, untouched by light. Shane was placed on a respirator immediately after birth on March 28, 1997. In the flurry to rescue him, there were many questions, which, over time, grew increasingly dire: What is spinal muscular atrophy (SMA)? Will he be in a wheelchair?

In all ways, a child was expected--awaited. The roots of their lives had grown to a place deep and firm, where the importance of creating new life lies. Catherine Curry-Williams was wed in antique-white satin, and Scott Williams wore a Scottish kilt. Their honeymoon in Italy was timed to facilitate conception. Catherine, 39, had been married before but during that 10-year relationship never considered having children.
