Even in the wilderness where the mountains meet the desert, city lights are ever encroaching. A bright lamp from a far-off parking lot began marring the night sky in a rural corner of the high desert in the Antelope Valley about three years ago. The glow went all the way to the home of Wayne Argo from about five miles away. Argo had long exulted in how dark it got at his ranch-style home, separated from downtown Los Angeles by 35 miles and the San Gabriel Mountains. "I can see millions more stars than people that live in the city," said Argo, who lives 20 miles southeast of Palmdale.

It also requests that authorities determine whether federal prosecution is warranted under civil rights statutes.

County Supervisor Michael Antonovich is leading an effort to "strip away one-third of the five-mile-wide protected Malibu coastal zone," which prevents widespread development in the untouched hills and canyons in the Santa Monica Mountains (July 1). Antonovich, whose campaigns are heavily financed by industry and developers, lives in Glendale and could not care less about the Santa Monica National Parklands or, for that matter, the increasing traffic congestion on our roads, which development will only worsen.
