For Duncan McFetridge, allowing private development in Cleveland National Forest is like trying to combine oil and water: It just doesn't mix. "We have a national forest that is in danger of being fragmented by urbanization and destroyed as a wildlife habitat," said McFetridge, a member of Save Our Forest and Ranchlands, a countywide environmental group.

A little-noted court victory has removed a major hurdle for construction of a controversial strip mall at the edge of the Cleveland National Forest--a decision that also has fueled critics' fears that developers are gaining ground in decades-old battles over building in local canyons. Two other pending proposals--one old, one new--could add nearly 500 homes to the sparsely populated hillsides around the bucolic Cook's Corner, at El Toro and Live Oak Canyon roads, near the forest.

Thomas Pewdo had just turned around to warn his hiking companions about slippery rocks ahead. As he resumed walking, he tumbled off the sharp ridge and somersaulted to his death 600 feet below. Pewdo, 50, died Saturday about 2:30 p.m., but it wasn't until 1:50 p.m. Sunday that his body was finally extricated from dense foliage and jagged rocks by rescuers forced to rappel down from the ridge top.

Tipped off by an anonymous caller, authorities Thursday uncovered the biggest marijuana farm ever found in Orange County, hidden deep in the sharp mountain ridges and desolate canyons of Cleveland National Forest. More than a dozen sheriff's deputies hiked three hours through thick stands of cactus and live oak before discovering about 2,000 fully grown marijuana plants in a rugged area near the Orange County-Riverside County line.

A 49-year-old man who was planning to be married this weekend was stabbed to death at his remote Baker Canyon home Monday, and his fiancee was critically injured by the same assailant, authorities said. Orange County Sheriff's Department investigators said they had few clues in the killing and declined to release the dead man's name. But neighbors identified him as Rogelio Merloz, the well-liked maintenance manager of the Flying B Ranch, where the attack occurred.

The Irvine Co. and the U.S. Department of Interior are discussing a possible land swap in which the development giant could gain control of all or part of El Toro Marine Corps Air Station in exchange for property bordering the Cleveland National Forest, officials said Thursday. Federal officials were in Orange County last week meeting with Irvine Co. executives about the proposal for future control of the 4,700-acre military base, scheduled to close in 1999, officials said.

Hampered by bad weather and rugged canyon terrain, crews began the daunting task Thursday of examining and removing the wreckage of a Marine Corps plane that crashed a night earlier, killing two aboard. Dense fog and drizzle cloaked the remote, wooded area where a two-seat, T-34C Beechcraft turboprop plane crashed Wednesday night after taking off from El Toro Marine Corps Air Station about 5 p.m., officials said. The two Navy aviators killed in the crash were Lt. Michael Edward Moffat Jr.

The forest roads of Silverado Canyon don't seem like much--just miles of scrub oak, sycamore and faded wildflowers, a good number of flies and a great deal of silence. Now, however, hikers and bicyclists seeking solace on these dusty trails are required to pay $5 for a day's use or $30 for an annual pass. The three-year pilot program, which started Monday, applies to the Cleveland, Los Padres, Angeles and San Bernardino national forests.
