A federal judge approved plans Monday for a mine that would extract 56.1 million tons of sand and gravel from a canyon near Santa Clarita, despite the objections of environmental groups and local governments. Opponents say the project would adversely affect air quality, traffic and water supplies in north Los Angeles County. The decision was hailed as a victory by Brian Mastin, spokesman for the Mexican concrete company Cemex, which holds the federal mineral rights for the project.

A decision by a federal judge in Los Angeles is expected today on a consent decree that would allow a Mexican concrete company to build a gravel mine near Santa Clarita. Long opposed to the project, the city of Santa Clarita recently won the right to intervene in a lawsuit that the company, Cemex Inc., brought against Los Angeles County after the Board of Supervisors blocked the project in February 2002. City officials are planning a protest outside the Roybal Federal Building at 10 a.m.

After weeks of slow-speed pursuit, the Cleveland Indians have finally passed the Oakland Athletics in the American League wild-card race. Manny Ramirez homered and drove in three runs Tuesday night in a 14-6 rout of the Athletics at Cleveland. "It's good to be in first," said Indian Manager Charlie Manuel, who can be forgiven for the faulty arithmetic. Cleveland remains 7 1/2 games behind Chicago in the AL Central. "But we have to go out there and play just as hard tomorrow."

Zero was the number of the day at Poly High on Wednesday as the host Parrots disposed of Valley Pac-8 Conference rival Birmingham, 2-0. Pitcher Eddie Castellanos improved his Valley-leading record to 6-0 and his team improved its flawless conference record to 7-0. But the zeroes on the scoreboard weren't the only ones. The oftentimes spectacular Poly defense committed zero errors behind Castellanos, who pitched a seven-hitter to notch his fifth complete game.

The article by Psyche Pascual was excellent! We appreciated her thoroughness and unbiased attitude. My husband and I have been fighting this abuse of the system for several years. We have spent many hours at the county government center reviewing reams of paper work in the Blue Star file. We are extremely cautious with the facts we quote to reporters. They are supported by documents. Once again I commend your article! PAT SCHLEVE Moorpark

The City Council, which on Monday considered giving formal approval to a compromise allowing the Azusa Rock Co. to continue mining Fish Canyon, has delayed action until Dec. 19 to allow those concerned about the agreement to state their objections. In November, the council approved a list of 13 conditions to be added to the quarry's 32-year-old mining permit in an effort to reduce noise and dust pollution for residents of Azusa and nearby Duarte.

Many of your readers are unaware that S. P. Milling has purchased 502 acres of prime citrus and avocado orchards east of Santa Paula, with intentions of mining. This property is north of California 126 and includes Boulder Creek (formerly known as Lords Creek). At present, quarry plans include building asphalt and cement plants, with mining operations to take place on 50-acre parcels. For those who feel "you can't fight City Hall," I suggest reading a recently published article in the San Diego Union that noted the H. G. Fenton Material Co. withdrew its request to the Board of Supervisors there to operate a controversial rock quarry near the Lawrence Welk and Champagne retirement villages.

Once the veneer is peeled away, the crux of the story "Quarry Operating Without a Permit" (June 18) was not about the permit but rather about someone's taking residence in an area and subsequently trying to put an already existing company, Blue Star Ready Mix, out of business because he does not like the traffic. The fact that Blue Star had been there years sooner seemed to be of little consequence. If this neighbor buys property at Manchester and Sepulveda, would LAX have to go?
