Stonehurst opens new playground

SUN VALLEY - Stonehurst Elementary celebrated the completion of a brand-new playground Friday with a family picnic, movie and speeches by students.

The playground, which features new climbing equipment, grass and trees, was made possible through volunteer efforts and grants from several agencies, including the Kirk and Anne Douglas Playground Enhancement Program, California Waste Management, and the Los Angeles Department of Public Works' Cool Schools Tree Planting Program.

Funds from Proposition BB, a $2.4 billion school construction and modernization bond, were used to resurface the playground, add grass and install the play equipment.

Candidate calls for Valley to split

Ali Malekniazi, candidate for an independent San Fernando Valley city council, asked other council hopefuls on Friday to sign a pledge to break up the Valley into eight to 10 smaller cities to ensure more local control.

Malekniazi, who is running in the 10th District, said a Valley city of 1.3 million could suffer the same problems as Los Angeles, with a government remote from the people.

If many candidates sign the pledge, he said, it would give the secession campaign new momentum by demonstrating commitment to local control. As of Friday afternoon, no candidate had signed the pledge, Malekniazi said.

Prosecutors ask Blake-bail delay

VAN NUYS - In court documents Friday, prosecutors urged a judge to wait until after a preliminary hearing to determine whether actor and accused wife killer Robert Blake should be granted bail.

The request is in response to an order this week by the state Supreme Court, which could conceivably lead to Blake being granted bail.

On Wednesday, the state's highest court ordered the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department to show ``why Blake is not entitled to a bail hearing forthwith as to whether `the facts are evident or the presumption great' with respect to the special circumstance allegation'' of lying in wait.

Van Nuys Superior Court Judge Lloyd Nash has set a hearing for Monday morning to address the Supreme Court's order.
