Why The Long Fence?

Our little green triangle is under construction. Everyone in Granada Hills knows it, but few have ever walked in it, and even fewer know that the tiny green space at the intersection of Zelzah and Chatsworth has a name: Granada Hills Veterans Memorial Park . The back side of the "Welcome To Granada Hills" sign in the park has a plaque paying tribute to Granada Hills residents who died in Vietnam, and the area is about to receive more items of tribute: bricks engraved with veterans' names', and a brass statue of a little boy giving a bear hug to a folded American flag . According to SFV News, the statue was donated by Jake Parunyan, owner of Kenn Cleaners.

Dry Cleaners Closed Indefinitely After Car Wreck

Quality Cleaners, on Balboa Boulevard just south of San Fernando Mission, will remain closed indefinitely after a motorist crashed their car through the shop's front window yesterday morning at 8:00 a.m. The shop owner refused to comment other than to say a lawsuit is pending after the crash, and that everything else surrounding the incident -- when and if the store will reopen, what repair costs will be -- was "undetermined." Officer Khoury of Valley Traffic Division said that the driver was a 47 year old female who simply "confused the gas and the brake," and that the driver was not intoxicated. The owners of Top Donut, the shop next door which does a bustling business at that time of the day, said that the driver was one of their regular customers. The driver was not injured in the wreck, but a person on the sidewalk suffered minor injuries. KCal 9 Coverage Daily News Coverage
