A little girl rushed up to a visitor at a school performance last week and demanded to be heard. "My name is Alanna Lynn, I am 9, I am a vegetarian, I have a mom, a stepmom, a dog and a hamster. This is my first experience writing a play." Alanna's script--about a fuzzy pink killer bunny--was performed with great hilarity by professional actors, at Walgrove Elementary School in Venice. It was rated YDL by its author, which means "You'll Definitely Laugh."

For architect Glen Irani and his wife, artist Edith Beaucage, their two-story modern home on a narrow lot on a Venice canal represents a fusion of talents. "Both our work revolves around light, color and the language of forms," says Quebec-born Beaucage, whose abstract canvases reflect exuberant free-form shapes in eye-popping colors. "Glen brings more structure to my work and I bring color and less structure to his. We have a little collaboration going on."

Sheila Bernard moves from one neighbor's apartment to the next, like a doctor visiting patients in a trauma ward. She knows her neighbors' histories, their fears, their dismal prospects for finding new homes. As president of the Lincoln Place Tenants' Assn. in Venice, she lobbied to keep them from losing their apartments. She attended meetings with housing representatives, enlisted the help of legal aid attorneys, staged a protest.

Some members of the Venice Shoreline Crips have renounced their gang membership, and with the help of the Nation of Islam have pledged to build legitimate businesses rather than selling drugs. Despite that pledge, a temporary injunction against 38 members of the gang is expected to be issued today in Santa Monica Superior Court. The injunction would set a curfew of 10 p.m. to sunrise and ban the gang members from publicly gathering in the Oakwood section of Venice.

The Department of Transportation has resumed the DASH community shuttle to Venice beach. The buses will run every 10 minutes from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on weekends and holidays through Labor Day, said department spokeswoman Carolyn Perez Anderson. Passengers are transported from the DASH parking lot at 4551 Glencoe Ave. in Venice to the beach, three miles away. Last year, 16,000 people used the service, she said.

A groundbreaking ceremony to create the first off-leash dog park in West Los Angeles will be held Saturday, concluding a 10-year effort by canine lovers to create a "free play" area for their pets. The park will consist of a fenced two-acre plot on the east side of Westminster Park that will be split into two areas to separate big and small dogs. It will be open from sunrise to sunset.

After more than a year of negotiations, an acclaimed literary organization has signed a new lease to remain in the former Venice City Hall, officials said. The 10-year lease for Beyond Baroque, a literary salon and bookstore which took up residence in the historic building in 1980, was approved by the city Department of General Services Monday, said Niki Tennant, a spokeswoman for City Councilwoman Ruth Galanter, who pushed for the unusually long lease. The annual rent is $1, Tennant said.

Chaos rules on the Venice Boardwalk. In the absence of regulation, unlicensed vendors swarm the beachfront side of Ocean Front Walk, where nobody is required to pay rent. Across the way, on the east side of the boardwalk, licensed merchants who rent stalls or storefronts glare at the unlicensed competition that they say is strangling their livelihood.
