Sitting on a bench at Van Nuys Junior High, 12-year-old Augustine Bradley contemplated renaming her school. "If I could change the name of the school," she said, "I would name it after Christa McAuliffe," the teacher-astronaut who died in the Challenger space shuttle disaster. "A lot of people right here at this school have been dramatically changed by people like her." Augustine's wish may come true.

The more things change, the more they stay the same--at least in the eyes of the U.S. Postal Service.

The epidemic of local name changes in the San Fernando Valley spread again Wednesday: Yet another portion of Van Nuys will be given to Sherman Oaks--carving Van Nuys Junior High out of its namesake neighborhood. The office of Los Angeles City Councilman Marvin Braude, who represents the area, announced that an area of about 45 blocks will be renamed. The area is bordered by Van Nuys Boulevard on the east and the San Diego Freeway on the west, between Burbank and Magnolia boulevards.
