The dirt is being dished in Kagel Canyon near Lake View Terrace, but how much is being taken--or, more appropriately, is being dumped--is under question. On one side of this dirty dispute is the Kagel Canyon Civic Assn., which represents about 325 households in the community near Angeles National Forest. On the other side is Sholom Memorial Park & Mortuary, which has been in the 13000 block of Lopez Canyon Road since the 1940s.

Lake View Terrace and Kagel Canyon residents, speaking at a hearing Saturday attended by scores of anti-dump activists, once again called on air pollution officials to close the Lopez Canyon Landfill until toxic gas emissions are controlled. The speakers also asked the hearing board of the South Coast Air Quality Management District to impose conditions on the dump's operations, including banning recyclable trash at the dump and limiting the number of truck trips per day at the landfill.

Consider this contender for TV irony-of-the-month award. During a recent late-night broadcast of "King of Kings," that fine and reverent telling of the life of Jesus, frequent commercial breaks featured smarmy plugs for adult-only phone "party" lines, including a "romantic encounters confession line"! Though it hardly seems kosher, I saw it on TV so it must be true. Can't wait to thank my priest for this convenient new service. Barbara Keegan, Kagel Canyon

Members of the California Waste Management Board said Friday that they sympathized with the complaints of residents who live near Lopez Canyon Landfill, but added that it would be impossible to meet the demands of some to close the dump. The remarks came after a public hearing on a city of Los Angeles request to renew a permit to operate the landfill, the city's only public waste dump. A decision on the permit is expected at the board's next meeting July 13 and 14 in Sacramento, board officials said.

The clearing of debris-strewn Kagel Canyon property, ordered by Los Angeles County, hit its first snag about 7:10 a.m. Wednesday when a tenant and a relative of the property owner formed a human blockade. Standing on the bumper of a burned-out trailer slated for clearance and refusing to budge, Susan White--grandniece of owner Robert Winemiller--yelled at a county-hired tractor driver: "You're not taking this one . . . This is no hazard to anyone.

Mounds of debris and dilapidated trailers, buses and campers strewn over 8 acres in Kagel Canyon will be cleared against the landowner's wishes, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors ruled Tuesday. Neighbors had complained for more than 5 years about conditions at the property, which is owned by Robert Winemiller, 70, and is north of Lake View Terrace. They said Winemiller had rented the trailers and other vehicles to numerous families over the years.

Los Angeles County on Thursday ordered nine people to move from squalid Kagel Canyon property where abandoned cars and debris were cleared in response to complaints from neighbors. A bulldozer scooped up the refuse from Robert Winemiller's property in the wake of complaints about the unsightliness of the car hulks and other junk that have accumulated in the 58 years since his family bought the land.

Since Robert Winemiller moved to Kagel Canyon in 1930, he has amassed a lifetime of junk, including more than 70 car hulks, a row of broken-down refrigerators and several makeshift trailers that he says are empty. But neighbors say those trailers are home to either squatters or illegal tenants.

On a clear day, Clara McNey can see the San Fernando Valley, downtown Los Angeles and Catalina Island from her home of 40 years at the top of Kagel Canyon. But, on the day two years ago that Jerry Overlock moved down the hill from her, McNey saw red. Overlock and his wife hauled four small sheds and a pair of travel trailers onto a tiny lot in the middle of the brush-covered slope. He rigged up a solar panel for power, bought jugs for water, and called the place home.
