El Capitan Ranch, one of the largest properties on the Gaviota coast, is now a state park, according to the Trust for Public Lands. The 2,500-acre property, which rises from El Capitan State Beach through oak woodlands and chaparral to the ridgelines of the Santa Ynez Mountains, cost $9.5 million. The state already owned about 3,000 acres at Gaviota State Park and El Capitan and Refugio state beaches. The ranch is valued at $12.

Bringing under public ownership one of the most significant swaths of undeveloped coastline in Southern California, a nonprofit land trust said Wednesday that it has signed an agreement to purchase 2,500 acres of the sprawling El Capitan Ranch just west of Santa Barbara. The ranch is home to a range of plants and animals. One of the key elements of the sale, said the buyer, the nonprofit Trust for Public Land, is that the ranch will link El Capitan State Beach to the Los Padres National Forest.

I would like to clarify John McKinney's article "Despite Park Budget Crunch, El Capitan Beach Still Beckons" (Hiking, June 22). As the district superintendent responsible for acquiring and operating this new unit, I knew last fall that opening and operating the 2,500-acre park would be nearly impossible without augmenting my budget. Although it is true that the state parks department has experienced some budget cuts this year, the challenges facing the opening of this new park are more complex.

Shots fired by a sniper at passing vehicles in Santa Barbara County forced authorities to shut down a 15-mile stretch of the 101 Freeway indefinitely Wednesday evening, as SWAT teams combed the area for the gunman. All residents along the stretch of closed freeway were advised to lock their doors and stay home. At least three vehicles were struck by gunfire along the highway between Santa Barbara and Las Cruces to the north, near Buellton. A total of six shots were fired.

There's trouble in hikers' paradise. Last year the nonprofit Trust for Public Land bought 2,500-acre El Capitan Ranch, just inland from El Capitan State Beach about 20 miles north of Santa Barbara. The beautiful property, purchased for $9.5 million with the help of private donors, was transferred to California for use as a state park. It contains about 15 miles of ranch roads, an instant trail system that runs along El Capitan Creek and ascends the ridges above El Capitan Canyon.

Exxon Co. USA will hire 600 workers, many from Ventura County, to build new onshore and offshore oil-processing facilities in Santa Barbara, the company announced Friday from its Thousand Oaks production office. The Ventura County Contractors Assn. applauded the announcement as a much-needed boost to the county building industry, which says that there have been fewer local projects because of growth controls in cities throughout the county.

California's natural resources have suffered for the past 16 years under prior governors. Now, under Gov. Gray Davis, who promised to be a friend of the environment, the state's natural resources face yet another stingy budget. Even with a $4.3-billion surplus to draw on, Davis added relatively little to the resources budget, leaving it even smaller than the final outlay of Gov. Pete Wilson.

About 70 Ventura County Latino youths, many from poor neighborhoods, got away from it all last weekend. At the same time, they brought it all--problems with family, school and street violence--with them. The boys and girls, most 14 to 18 years old, attended one of the twice-yearly camp-outs sponsored by Lucha, a Ventura-based Latino community service organization, and El Concilio, an Oxnard Latino advocacy group.
