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.

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.
