The Lancaster City Council has voted 4 to 1 to disband the city's Parks, Recreation and Arts Commission, a five-member advisory panel that has been dogged by controversies and a lack of clout at City Hall. Councilman Frank Roberts, who prefers temporary, council-appointed ad-hoc committees to deal with specific tasks, sought the change Monday night. Mayor George Root cast the lone dissenting vote. The council is set to take a final vote on disbanding the commission in two weeks.

The tumblin' tumbleweeds of Western song and lore, now becoming suburban pests, met the machine age Thursday. It was Machines 1, Weeds 0.

Lancaster, once a sleepy desert outpost, is now a city of 100,000 with a burden of big city problems--drugs, the homeless, overdevelopment, corruption, crowded schools and even gangs. Just when it seemed Lancaster had confronted all the usual metropolitan woes comes a new one: art wars. Lancaster's first attempt to institute a public art program to put donated paintings in city-owned buildings has broken down amid battles over who controls the program and chooses the art.
