Linda Menary will be the first to admit it, with a chuckle: She's an outlaw at worst and a San Fernando Valley anachronism at best. Tanned and heavyset, her long, sun-bleached blond hair tied into a low ponytail, Menary strides across her six-acre spread on Winnetka Avenue with the easy gait of a rancher. The 55-year-old businesswoman runs The Farm in Northridge, which operates as a pumpkin patch in the fall, a Christmas tree lot in winter and a farmers market in spring.

Bagel shop owners Carrie Richardson and Tina Patterson may seem unlikely crusaders for cell-phone etiquette.

The Boogie, a popular nightclub that attracts young people from all over Southern California, has had its license to sell alcohol suspended for 20 days, beginning Thursday. The state Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control suspended the license because of lewd behavior by performers at the club a year ago. The ABC has suspended Boogie's license twice previously, once for the sale of alcohol to an intoxicated person and once when employees sold drugs to undercover officers.

The music of live performers at Santa Monica's popular Third Street Promenade shopping district has reached such noise levels that the City Council on Tuesday asked local business owners and musicians to keep it down. A city law passed about two years ago restricts Promenade noise levels to 75 decibels during the day and 85 decibels at night. The city even appointed a special "artist liaison" to monitor performers with decibel meters.

Golfers at the Florida Club will still have to endure the stench from a neighboring pig farm, but they won't have to listen to twangy tunes played for the porkers' enjoyment. Circuit Judge Ben Bryan on Thursday threw out his previous order requiring Thomas Rossano to remove the pigs by Aug. 2.
