Amid the pawnshops and doughnut counters of his Mid-Wilshire neighborhood, art restorer John Knipe created his own private world, a cultured cocoon of antique furniture, fine paintings and rare books--probably about 8,000 books, stuffed onto pine shelves the former Oxford University history instructor built in his rented duplex. His nine-room apartment seemed several eras and a continent away from the hectic Latino and Korean street culture beneath his windows.

Trash from residences in the city's east end will continue to be collected for two more years under an agreement with Los Angeles County, the City Council decided this week. The Malibu Garbage Disposal District, which covers more than 2,500 homes and apartments between the Civic Center area and Topanga Canyon Boulevard, was formed in the 1940s and has been administered by the county.

The city's hope to stall the extension of Borchard Road looks doubtful after the recent resignation of several members of a city negotiating committee. Some $100 million in litigation has been initiated regarding the project, which would provide one of only two traffic arteries feeding the 2,350-unit, $700-million Dos Vientos housing project. Residents protested after the City Council in July 1996 approved the road to be extended at a 12% grade, since city code limits roads to a 5% grade.

Drivers tired of idling their minutes away at the congested Victoria Avenue-Ventura Freeway interchange praised proposed changes to the intersection at a workshop Wednesday evening. "It's badly needed," said Jim Salzer, whose nearby video and record stores may be affected by plans to increase the size of the intersection. John Knipe, a consultant who is working for the city of Ventura on the project's design, said the work is expected to cost $13 million or $14.

The Ventura City Council's decision to award a high-stakes contract to an out-of-town firm has roiled some local businessmen, who question the city's dedication to investing its money at home. But city officials say some jobs are too important to limit applicants to Ventura companies. Engineers and community leaders doing business in Ventura are criticizing the council's vote to award Irvine-based Fluor Daniel a $197,000 contract to manage the largest road improvement project in city history.
