Gas:   Streets were closed and about a dozen Cypress Park residents left their homes early Sunday evening after a gas line was broken  in the 500 block of W. Avenue 28.  The pipe was ruptured by a worker using a tractor to demolish a building at the site, said LAFD.  Daily News

Walk-in:  An estimated 1,000 high school students participated in a “Walk in to Higher Education” on Friday to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the East L.A.
