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.

The Azusa Rock Co. will be able to continue rock mining at its Fish Canyon Road quarry, the City Council decided Monday, over the objections of several residents. The council voted 3 to 2 to renew the quarry's permit, saying it has complied with all city conditions. However, the council required the company to report to the city monthly on its efforts to restore parts of the mountain that are not being mined.

The City Council on Monday again delayed a decision on whether to close an Azusa Rock quarry that is carving into two mountains at the edge of the Angeles National Forest. Meeting behind closed doors, the council failed to decide on an attorney to provide a second opinion on whether to close the quarry. "Litigation or potential litigation" was cited as the reason for the closed session.

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
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.
