I read with no small amount of irony the flattering article on Donald H. Brackenbush ("Ahmanson Co. President Is Close to Building a Dream," Times Valley Edition, Feb. 22). Brackenbush is nothing more than a self-interested environmental carpetbagger. He has the temerity to suggest, presumably with a straight face, that developing 68 "mansions" on the Ahmanson property (which would be consistent with Ventura County's General Plan), each with "three teen-age kids with off-road motorcycles," would create more significant environmental impacts than the 37,000 vehicle trips per day that Ahmanson has estimated the project will create.

A. MacNeil Stelle, a Hidden Hills resident who was among the group of people who doggedly worked to bring water to the area three decades ago, has announced that he will not seek reelection to the Las Virgenes Municipal Water District board of directors. Stelle said that after 32 years on the board--marked by rapid and significant growth in the area--it was time to leave at the end of his term. He leaves as the district is building a new headquarters and struggles with budget problems.

Two weeks after staging a protest against a proposed boarding school in Calabasas, residents of a nearby development are planning to attend a hearing of the Los Angeles County Regional Planning Commission on Wednesday to voice their concerns. The planning commission is considering whether to grant Mesivta of Greater Los Angeles permits to build a Jewish Orthodox boys' school on Mureau Road, less than half a mile from Mountain View Estates, a community of 385 homeowners.

A Calabasas house belonging to a member of the rap group NWA was damaged Sunday by a blaze that left two firefighters slightly injured, authorities said. The two-story house caught fire about 6 p.m. after sparks from smoldering coals--possibly from a barbecue--traveled from a trash can up a vent pipe into the attic, Los Angeles County fire officials said. A second alarm on the blaze was sounded about 15 minutes later. About 50 firefighters battled the blaze, which was extinguished about 6:50 p.

The plan to build a Jewish Orthodox boarding school on Mureau Road has sparked a sign-waving protest and hours of opposition testimony at county hearings, but this week the Mountain View Estates Homeowners Assn. took its case to court. The homeowners, who live in a 385-home development less than half a mile from the school's property, filed a Superior Court lawsuit Monday against Los Angeles County Director of Planning James E.

For years, only the loftiest reaches of the San Fernando Valley boasted million-dollar homes. Not anymore. Last year, 159 homes in the Valley sold for $1 million or more, according to the Southland Regional Assn. of Realtors--up from 76 the year before. This year's million-dollar market also seems off to a roaring start, with 20 homes closing escrow for $1 million or more in April, the beginning of the home-buying season.

A judge has ruled in favor of five mobile home park residents near Canoga Park who alleged that the park owner failed to make repairs and allowed dangerous conditions to persist for years, including a faulty electrical system that had been cited more than 100 times by state inspectors. Based on an eight-day trial held in April, Judge Gregory C.

Now that the six-year statewide drought is history, one would expect a greener year for the area's nurseries, sod farms and landscapers. And in fact, some homeowners have cautiously begun to indulge in the springtime rite of laying flower beds, potting plants and tending trees. That's welcome relief for businesses that sell plants and landscaping services in the San Fernando Valley area, which have seen their sales decline from 10% to more than 50% during the past few years.

In a last-ditch effort to stop the Ahmanson Ranch development, its opponents tried to persuade a state appeals court Wednesday that the ground under the proposed mini-city may have been contaminated by chemicals and even radioactive material from Rocketdyne's nearby rocket-testing facility. Unbuilt and long-mired in lawsuits, the 3,050-home development is planned for a long sliver of land in easternmost Ventura County, between Thousand Oaks and the Los Angeles County line.
