But after touring the 45-foot-long television studio on wheels and seeing the three television cameras, the eight-channel audio board, the fax machine, the studio lights and the two laser disc players, Lupe delivered a verdict. "It's cool," she said.

Three new murals and about 50 flowering plants greeted students at the Erwin Street Elementary School on Monday--the result of a volunteer-driven weekend cleanup of the school's exterior. From raking to sweeping, planting to painting, about 60 volunteers from the community, Universal Studios and the school spruced up the campus to boost morale among the 1,000 students accustomed to seeing graffiti and patchy grass at school.

Painting murals, planting flowers, and clearing litter aren't exactly glamorous tasks, but Erwin Street Elementary School parents, students, faculty and community members will shun glitz Saturday as they tidy the school's exterior. Principal Marla Mondheim has dubbed the beautification event the "roll up your sleeves and pitch in to help" day. The school is often marred by graffiti and is surrounded by dying, patchy grass, which will be reseeded.

Van Nuys Middle School student Ruchika Puri, 14, never knew that 10 veterans were in her midst. Frankly, neither did Student Body President Hannah Jung, 15.

Tables at the Hungry Wolf Cafe were no larger than a child's desk. Reservations had to be booked a week in advance. The menu was limited to sandwiches, and the help occasionally mixed up the orders. For all that, patrons unanimously praised the Van Nuys eatery Thursday. "It's great," said customer Anthony Aceves, despite being denied the bean burrito he first requested.
