Resting in the dairy farm country of northwestern Riverside County, the Swan Lake mobile home park once was a quiet refuge for many low- and middle-income retirees. It had its problems, including odors from the nearby farms, but attractions such as the park's moderate land rental charges kept the community filled with contented residents. That tranquillity, however, was shattered after a partnership half-owned by Jeffrey A.

Nearing completion after five years of construction in the hills of Bel-Air, Chateau des Fleurs looms like some super-sized Hollywood notion of dynastic France. From the street, the two-story mansion on three acres - where Stone Canyon and Bellagio roads converge south of the Hotel Bel-Air, across from the fourth fairway of the Bel-Air Country Club - is largely obscured by fences, trees and equipment. A better view is available from an ungated lawn on nearby Siena Way, where an observer can peer down on the palatial, U-shaped residence with its Versailles-inspired mansard roof and dormer windows and ponder: Just how much house does a family need?

Walt Disney Co.'s romance with Marvel Entertainment began last February when Disney Chief Executive Bob Iger first brought up the idea of an acquisition during an otherwise innocuous business meeting with Marvel film chief David Maisel. In June, Iger made his intentions clear and the two companies embarked on a nearly three-month-long series of negotiations that involved four in-person meetings, numerous phone discussions and an intense back-and-forth over price that culminated in the $4-billion deal announced Aug. 31. The timeline of the negotiations that led to the acquisition, along with other details of the agreement, were disclosed Tuesday in a regulatory filing from Disney that led with its public offer of up to $2.12 billion in stock to help fund the deal.

Re "The Maverick at Center of Mobile Home Rent Battle," Feb. 16: In 1968 we made a decision to sell our home and move into a mobile home park. At that time the rent was lower than our house payments, and it seemed a safe place to prepare for retirement. Had we stayed in our home, the mortgage would be clear; instead, the rental on our space has more than doubled, and it will continue to rise, even with rent control. We are some of the lucky ones, as our owners are not cut from the same cloth as Jeffrey Kaplan, but the fact remains that we have a sizable investment in our double-wide mobile home, but our "mortgage" increases and will never be paid off. Our only recourse is to fight Prop.

Although a landlord-sponsored petition to change the city's mobile home rent ordinance received enough signatures to be placed on the November ballot, the City Council Tuesday delayed a citywide vote until 1990. The petition, sponsored by the owners of Brookside Mobile Home Estates, would establish a rent subsidy program to replace the ordinance, which provides mandatory arbitration in rent disputes between mobile home park owners and residents.
