A little-known revision of the controversial Porter Ranch housing and retail development approved in January by the Los Angeles Planning Commission has residents of neighboring Limekiln Canyon fuming about the possibility of extra traffic in their community. "We didn't receive adequate notification about street access changes south of Porter Ranch," said Keith Richman, candidate for 12th District charter commissioner and 18-year Limekiln Canyon resident.

Inspiring redwoods, a sandy beach and a trail into Big Sur history are some of the attractions of Limekiln State Park. The park, one of California's newest, opened in September 1995 after the state acquired a privately held campground and 716 acres of land in southernmost Big Sur. The isolated coastal canyon was named for its 1870s to 1880s limekiln operations. Quarried limestone was smelted in four huge wood-fired kilns.

A wind-whipped fire that blackened 3,200 acres of brush and charged through a northern San Fernando Valley neighborhood came to a smoldering end Saturday while many of the residents whose homes were destroyed or damaged returned to pick through the rubble. The scenes that often accompany a fire disaster of this magnitude--public displays of grief, the mobilizing of social services--were mostly absent.

Athoroughbred polo pony that stumbled off a trail into a steep canyon in Porter Ranch had to be lifted out of the canyon Sunday afternoon by a helicopter. Pat Stewart, 43, of Ventura--helping Los Angeles Animal Control Officer Dennis Kroeplin put a sling on the sedated gelding, at right--was riding the animal Sunday morning about 10 a.m. in Limekiln Canyon. The horse slipped at a turn on a narrow trail, falling about 25 feet.

It was Bear 1, Searchers 0 on Friday. A roving black bear, described as a 1- or 2-year-old adolescent, eluded a dozen searchers after dozens of residents spotted it wandering through a residential area around Limekiln Canyon. The bear, scared into the canyon by a barking dog Friday morning, was then seen only sporadically and for seconds at a time as it hid among the canyon's trees under the Hollow Springs Drive bridge.
