Ron Troncatty recalls that back in 1984, when he began telling people about his dream of a new city park, they told him he was crazy. Troncatty, then vice president of the Old Agoura Homeowners Assn., wanted to arrange a land swap: the 2.75-acre city-owned site on which the old park was situated for another tract down the street, a nine-acre parcel owned by a developer. "It's not normally done, trading property like that," Troncatty said.

Sheila Kuehl said she held her breath early Friday afternoon as she scanned the list of items that Gov. Pete Wilson had cut from the state budget at the eleventh hour. "It's sort of like looking at a casualty list," said Kuehl (D-Santa Monica), the speaker pro tem of the California Assembly. To her relief, the line item she was searching for had survived the governor's fabled blue pencil.

Calabasas officials are considering spending about $1.2 million to help build a regional library in Agoura Hills that would serve both communities. The 25,000-square-foot facility would be built on donated land in Agoura Hills and be stocked and staffed by Los Angeles County after construction. Agoura Hills would pay about 80% of the estimated $5.8 million in construction costs--money the city had already planned to spend to build a 21,500-square-foot facility.
