The Calabasas City Council voted to reconfirm Janice Lee as mayor two weeks after she announced her resignation. Before the council voted Wednesday night, Lee apologized for walking out of the July 18 council meeting, calling her action inappropriate. "I just reached the boiling point and I lost my composure," Lee said. On Thursday, Lee said she had no idea what was going to happen when she asked the council if she should stay. The council voted 4 to 0 in her favor.

Janice-Lee Romary, who competed as a fencer in six consecutive Olympics and was the first woman to carry the U.S. flag during opening ceremonies, died Thursday from complications related to Alzheimer's disease at her home in Klamath Falls, Ore., her family said. She was 79. Romary competed in the Olympic foil event from 1948 until 1968, finishing fourth in 1952 and 1956. She and Maria Cerra (1948) share the mark for the highest finish by a U.S. female fencer in the Olympics.

In regard to the Valley Newswatch item Oct. 6, "Good Plan," the Ahmanson Ranch project: The theme for a recent Santa Barbara planning association convention was "Redefining Paradise." No wonder Ahmanson Ranch won! Never mind the pending lawsuits against the project. Never mind that Ahmanson (owned by Home Savings) and Bob Hope reneged on a deal that cost the public $28 million. This was a group of planners in a hurry to take the wine tour. Funny though that a bunch of experts would plant a big kiss on the ugliest, meanest kid on the block.

When Janice Lee joined the Calabasas City Council (annual salary: $3,600), she kept her day job. Which explains why she's heading to the funeral of a 103-year-old woman in a pickup truck stuffed with live birds. It was barely 8 o'clock on a Sunday morning when Lee ducked into her backyard coop, setting off a flurry of flapping. She chose 21 snow-white rock doves, expertly plucking each one off its perch and plopping it into a cage. "They know there's a job coming up," Lee says.

Calabasas City Council members said Thursday they were still trying to understand why Mayor Janice Lee had abruptly resigned from the panel during a meeting the night before. The council had just tackled its first agenda item Wednesday when an agitated Lee announced she was quitting and stormed out the door. "It was a shock the way she did it," Councilwoman Lesley Devine said. "One big explosion no one expected." Lee, who could not be reached for comment, won her council seat in March 1999.

Recently, he began a campaign to collect signatures to stop the Ahmanson Ranch housing project, which he will forward to Rep. Brad Sherman (D--Sherman Oaks).

She could not be reached for comment Saturday. It has been unclear whether she was giving up her council seat or stepping down from the largely ceremonial role of mayor, which rotates among the members.
