Part white elephant. Part white-man whimsy. That's Chief White Eagle for you. The 14-foot figure of an American Indian has stood sentinel atop a rocky ledge overlooking Agoura for 64 years. A Polish nobleman created the sculpture as a tribute to Native Americans who first inhabited the Santa Monica Mountains and its grassy valleys.

As a reminder that she lives in a special niche of suburban Los Angeles, Donna Flint need only step onto her porch at night and gaze up at the inky sky. "It's pitch-black because we have no street lights here," said Flint, a resident of Old Agoura, an equestrian hamlet nestled among rolling hills. "You can see all the stars. People don't have that in the city." Rick Wentz thinks Old Agoura is special too.

A county commission Wednesday refused to renew the public eating license for a controversial entertainment facility that had been the target of neighbors' complaints. Avihu Datner, owner of the 23-acre Fantasy Island, said the commission's decision will not affect his business because he closed down its restaurant two years ago and all events held there now are catered. But county officials maintain that Datner needs the license to operate Fantasy Island.

The road turns off Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu and heads into the hills. Right there, where it leaves the ocean, it looks almost as it did decades ago when I sat in the back seat of our large red station wagon, behind my father's head. On the right is an empty field--the same, except that a riding ring used to be there, the site of the occasional horse show.

The four pretty girls from the suburbs brushed their hair in the parking lot of the Malibu Municipal Courthouse. They checked each other's lipstick, giggled a little, shared a cigarette, then teetered on clunky, fashionable heels into Judge Lawrence J. Mira's courtroom. They sat first in the second row, then shifted to the front row for a better look at the defendants--five boys they know who are accused of murdering a 16-year-old Agoura Hills youth. One girl stayed behind in the second row.
