Imagine mixing a one-gallon pitcher of lemonade using just one lemon. It would have to be a very big lemon, and Sylvia Wilson of Thousand Oaks may have just the fruit for the job. A child from her neighborhood near Conejo Community Park spotted the monster citrus growing in her yard, and with the help of her family and a long stick, knocked that big sucker to the ground. What landed was a lemon nearly two feet around, weighing in at 3 1/2 pounds.

The first cold snap of winter caused little if any damage to Ventura County citrus and avocado crops, growers reported Saturday, as rain-soaked ground and light winds kept temperatures higher than had been forecast. Many growers remained on alert through Friday night and Saturday morning with wind machines and orchard heaters in place and helicopters on standby at nearby airports. But by and large they wound up needing only the wind machines to lift temperatures out of the critical zone.

Once considered the doormats of the Southern Pacific Conference, Harbor City Narbonne hoped to avenge more than a decade of one-sided football losses.

The celebration came early and often for San Pedro on Friday night after the Pirates' 19-3 victory over Narbonne in the semifinals of the City Section Division 4-A playoffs.
