Residents and city leaders are pushing back against a plan to add toll lanes to a 14-mile stretch of the 405 Freeway in Orange County, a $1.47-billion proposal that would involve reconstructing overpasses and eliminating carpool lanes. Adding toll routes to the freeway - dismissed as "Lexus lanes" by one city mayor - is one of three proposed alternatives for helping untangle the highway congestion from Costa Mesa to the county line in Seal Beach. The most controversial of the alternatives would add a single general-purpose lane and a toll lane in each direction.

Sudden oak death, a disease that has ravaged California's signature oak trees in coastal areas as far north as Oregon, has turned up just 10 miles north of the San Luis Obispo County line. It is just a matter of time before it arrives in the county. Up to 25,000 acres of oak woodland in the county are considered susceptible, and experts said it already could be in San Luis Obispo in latent form.

Twenty years ago there emerged a fashion for restaurants serving an informal food that was just becoming part of American mainstream dining (pizza), served in a nostalgia setting of 40 years before (the silent films and Dixieland music of the '20s).

Residents of a tiny Lakewood-area neighborhood tucked between Coyote Creek and the Orange County line will soon become the last on their blocks--literally--to get MTV and "Ozzie & Harriet." The Board of Supervisors Tuesday approved an unusual franchise application from Copley/Colony Cablevision of Cypress Inc. to extend its cables a few feet out of Orange County and into Los Angeles County, providing the area with its first cable television service.

Orange County too often gets portrayed in stereotyping as a place removed by light-years from its neighbor Los Angeles. In that characterization, Orange County is a "square" and almost entirely white enclave, very consciously removed from the L.A. scene, and a place whose very act of sprawling was seen as a kind of cultural counterrevolution to the perceived failings of its northern neighbor.

Although many things may come easier for youths within Orange County's relatively affluent embrace, that advantage seems to reverse itself when they pick up a guitar. With a local political climate that hasn't been friendly to original music clubs, there is practically no place for groups to play. Bogart's, the only full-time venue that consistently presents original O.C.-raised music, is safely over the county line in Long Beach.

Nearly a decade later, San Clemente Fire Marshal Gary Carmichael still remembers waiting for the fierce blaze that advanced from San Diego County toward his firefighting crews, who were powerless to step beyond the county line. When the fire finally reached the Orange County border on a windy January evening in 1976, it had grown in such intensity that 16 homes in the community were destroyed and 69 others were damaged.

On a sunny September day, Christina Ayres lay on the sand near the Huntington Beach Pier, tanning in a pink bikini, and ticked off the things that identify a 909er. Bad clothing - " 'Jersey Shore' style," the 29-year-old explained. And meth addicts. "That's what you hear on the news. " Over on Main Street, Ryan Kaupang, 21, had a more specific description: "White kids that dress like bros," he said, "bros" meaning people who wear cut-off jerseys and motocross gear and "try to act like tough guys.

Firefighters battling flames in Ventura and Kern counties enjoyed a brief reprieve from the wind Wednesday night that officials said helped the blaze spread quickly earlier in the day. “The fire did die down a lot last night,” said Sean Collins, spokesman for the Kern County Fire Department. “We did have some active pockets, but I think it's being held within the original line from yesterday.” Hundreds of firefighters were battling the brush fire, which burned more than 3,000 acres after starting in Kern County near the Grapevine.

About 1,000 firefighters continue to battle a brush fire in Ventura and Kern counties that has burned about 3,500 acres after starting in Kern County near the Grapevine, authorities said. The blaze was 15% contained Thursday morning and about 600 firefighters were working overnight, said Sean Collins, spokesman for the Kern County Fire Department. The most active front of the fire was in Ventura County, where flames had spread and were burning through brush and grass in the Los Padres National Forest, fire officials said.

THERMAL, Calif. - One of the most highly regarded farms in Northern California, Petaluma-based County Line Harvest started growing organic vegetables in the Coachella desert to extend its production in the winter and spring. For owner David Retsky, who grew up in Beverly Hills, selling to Southern California was the logical next step, and almost like coming home. It's been a circuitous route for Retsky, 40. The son of a doctor, he became interested in agriculture after high school, when he stayed on a kibbutz in Israel.

Metrolink fares will hold steady for now, but weekend service in Riverside and Orange counties will be sharply reduced next month to deal with a budget crunch caused by a fall in ridership and revenue at the regional rail service. The board of the five-county commuter train system, which has been struggling with unprecedented, recession-driven financial turmoil for months, also voted Friday to cut two off-peak weekday trains on the Inland Empire/Orange County line. All of the trains being eliminated averaged less than 100 passengers as of October, officials said.

An oil fire near the Los Angeles County-Ventura County line raged for about an hour Tuesday before it burned itself out, fire officials said. More than 50 firefighters from the Ventura County and Los Angeles County fire departments responded to the blaze, which erupted shortly after 1 p.m. at a field in the hills near San Martinez Grande Canyon Road. No injuries were reported, and officials have no estimate of damage. No homes or businesses were endangered.

Plans to widen the 405 Freeway in northern Orange County are causing concern among Metropolitan Transportation Authority officials who warn that the project will create a massive bottleneck at the Los Angeles County line where the road narrows. Traffic experts say the rift over the Orange County Transportation Authority's $500-million project highlights the need for better regional planning among agencies with differing views on how to ease congestion.

IT'S ONE THING to apply to become Los Angeles County's chief administrative officer, get the offer and then turn it down, as Sandra L. Vargas of Hennepin County, Minn., did earlier this month. It's another thing entirely to accept the job, as did Thomas G. Mauk (Orange County's chief executive), then decide after all the announcements were made and congratulations offered that maybe it was the wrong move.
