The Calabasas City Council has rejected a proposal by Ahmanson Land Co. to pave and widen a section of Thousand Oaks Boulevard that could be vital to a controversial plan to build a mini-city in the Simi Hills. Although Ahmanson's planned 3,050-unit Ventura County development has been blocked by nine pending lawsuits, including one by the city of Calabasas, City Manager Charles Cate said the street project would have been rejected regardless of who submitted it.

California's fuel industry isn't running out of gasoline - supplies are only 2.5% lower than this time last year - but recent refinery and pipeline mishaps sent wholesale prices to all-time highs this week. As a result, some station owners weren't buying fuel for fear they couldn't sell it. Those who did buy simply kicked prices higher and bet customers would understand.

Calabasas homeowners have won a partial victory in their struggle to block construction of new roads through rugged ranchland, which they say would spoil the country setting they live in.
