Simmons and others could only stand by as the crime rate in their once-serene area skyrocketed and budget cutbacks hamstrung local law enforcement agencies.

A dispute over how to control proliferation of liquor sales outlets erupted into a screaming match that ended a meeting Monday night between the San Fernando City Council and a citizens group. "We're not going to be intimidated by mob rule," Councilman Doude Wysbeek declared as he motioned that the meeting be ended because of a confrontation between council members and about 25 members of Valley Organized in Community Efforts, or VOICE.

I'm sorry Circuit Judge Thomas F. Kirk terminated the parental rights of Rachel Kingsley and granted her biological son, Gregory, a divorce ("Boy Granted Divorce From Natural Parents," Sept. 26). My sadness is not for Mrs. Kingsley, but for Gregory. I, too, come from parents who mistreated and abandoned me.

The moon is full, the air is frigid and two pickup trucks have just collided head-on in the middle of Palmdale Boulevard. One driver, wearing only jeans and a long-sleeve shirt, is shivering beside the wreckage. He stops to comfort the little girl who was riding beside him. The other driver, who appears to be drunk, is sitting in the back of a sheriff's patrol car, its light bar stabbing the darkness with blue, red and yellow pulses.
