After building more than 3,000 homes on the east end of Camarillo over the last two decades, Ventura County's largest developer has angered scores of homeowners with its plan to construct houses on land that now is on the bottom of Calleguas Creek. The proposed development will be possible if Pardee Construction Co. gains city, county and federal approval for a $10-million project to change the course of a one-mile stretch of the creek in east Camarillo.

East Camarillo residents have asked the City Council to use its influence to assure that a Ventura County flood control project proposed for Calleguas Creek is constructed in an environmentally sensitive manner. Officials with the county Flood Control District say the project is needed to help guard against flooding and soil erosion along the creek. The proposal calls for realigning the creek and constructing a new channel to the west about twice the width of the current creek bed.

A discussion on whether to install concrete along the banks of a one-mile section of Calleguas Creek and redirect its course is scheduled for a Camarillo City Council study session tonight at City Hall. The meeting will help the council decide later what to do with the meandering stream, which has posed flooding problems for nearby developments.

During the Cold War, a small group of men reportedly infiltrated Point Mugu Naval Air Weapons Station and bivouacked on the beach under cover of night. The next morning, the Navy took them by surprise. In a textbook two-pronged assault, an amphibious landing craft crashed through the surf while Jeeps rolled across the sand. Outgunned and outflanked, the men surrendered. And the base was once again safe from surfers.

A congressional committee has approved nearly $5 million to dredge Ventura County's recreational harbors and pay for flood control studies of Calleguas and Santa Paula creeks. The House Appropriations Committee also approved an undetermined amount of money to help clean up toxic solvents and low-level radioactive waste buried at Rocketdyne's Santa Susana Field Laboratory in the San Fernando Valley, said John Frith, a spokesman for Rep. Elton Gallegly (R-Simi Valley).

Camarillo residents living near Calleguas Creek say they like hearing coyotes howl at night and watching road runners scamper through the brush. But they are afraid that plans to build a mobile home park and a flood control project along the creek will kill these simple pleasures--along with the view that cost them premium prices. "The reason we came to this area is the view, and it's going to be taken away from us," said Laine Alves, whose back yard overlooks the creek.

Ventura County officials acted Tuesday to approve a federal plan that would limit the amount of pollution that flows into Mugu Lagoon and the Pacific Ocean from the Calleguas Creek watershed. The County Board of Supervisors voted 5 to 0 for the plan, which would ultimately force the county to control the quality of drainage water.

A rain-swollen creek that topped its banks during a two-day deluge inundated about 900 acres of Oxnard farmland and caused significant damage to at least four county crops, officials said Tuesday. Ventura County Agricultural Commissioner Earl McPhail told county supervisors Tuesday that strawberry, flower, vegetable and sod crops were damaged by flooding and decay after Calleguas Creek broke an earthen bank.

Federal legislation to fund a $620,000 study of Calleguas Creek is close to approval by Congress, Rep. Elton Gallegly (R-Simi Valley) said Thursday. The study will determine whether a flood control channel should be built along the creek so more crops can be planted without fear that they will be washed away in heavy rains. Gallegly said he expects money for the analysis to be approved by Congress very soon. The House approved the bill Thursday.

I regret that The Times staff writer Mayerene Barker did not interview me before writing her profile on the 21st Congressional District race. If she had, I could have prevented her from making some totally erroneous assumptions concerning my campaign. I am not at all "complacent" about my reelection campaign--I am well aware that the voters of my district have the final say in who will represent them. The reason I have been unable to mount an aggressive campaign is that until the current budget debate and other important legislative business is resolved, my primary responsibility is to remain in Washington to represent my constituents.
