President and Mrs. Reagan gathered with their family for a quiet Thanksgiving dinner at their fogbound ranch in the Santa Ynez mountains, where the main topic of conversation was the weather. The fog, prominently noted in the daily ranch report distributed to reporters, threatened to disrupt plans for a local aviation company to trail a 120-foot banner over the ranch, extending holiday greetings to the Reagans.

There's trouble at the world's largest chicken ranch, and lots of feathers are being ruffled. On one side of the feud is Richard Carrott, a 37-year-old former television actor and owner of the Egg City ranch in Ventura County. Carrott, who a few years ago chased space-age hoodlums while playing "Cadet Capt. Chris Gentry" on a Saturday morning television show, believes he is being portrayed unfairly as the heavy in the labor dispute at the 300-acre ranch near Moorpark.

Ed Keeylocko sauntered into the Blue Dog Saloon, took a seat and gestured toward the bartender. "Let me have a little tequila, sugar. " Today it was just Keeylocko and the bartender. But often visitors walk into this bar, sit next to Keeylocko, 79, and whisper in his ear, asking where they can find Ed Keeylocko. They want to see the cowboy they've heard so much about. "Some people think I'm mythical," he smirked, while his weathered fingers cupped the tiny glass of tequila ?

Ree Drummond is packing up her chuck wagon and heading off to a new frontier — television. Drummond is better known by her online moniker, the Pioneer Woman, also the name of her wildly popular blog where the former USC student writes humorously and affectionately about being a woman who once held big-city dreams and now wrangles with the world of country living. It logs more than 20 million page views per month — making it one of the most well-read food and lifestyle blogs — and has turned Drummond into a publishing sensation.

To the extent that modernism in architecture was about clearing the historical decks -- about dramatically and even gleefully breaking with the past -- Cliff May was never cut out to be a modernist. Not an orthodox one, anyway. A sixth-generation Californian born in 1903, May grew up spending summer vacations with an aunt on his father's side who held a lifetime lease on one of the original Mexican ranchos in northern San Diego County. His mother's family traced its lineage to Jose Antonio Estudillo, one of San Diego's most prominent founders.

The years that movie stars Clark Gable and Carole Lombard spent in the San Fernando Valley were some of their happiest--and for Gable, their most challenging. The pair got married shortly after Gable's epic turn as Rhett Butler in "Gone With the Wind" in 1939, during Lombard's run of uproarious screwball comedies typified by Howard Hawks' "Twentieth Century" in 1934.

Horticulturists recently announced that they had successfully cloned a genetic replica of an ailing 130-year-old giant sequoia planted by conservationist John Muir in the 1880s on his ranch in Martinez, Calif. And many more are apparently on the way, they say. If all goes according to plan, the first clone nurtured in a Michigan laboratory will be shipped within a year to California for planting at Muir's homestead, which is a national historic site about 35 miles northeast of San Francisco, said David Milarch, cofounder of the nonprofit Archangel Ancient Tree Archive.

Ventura County Dist. Atty. Michael D. Bradbury released evidence Wednesday supporting his contention that a drug raid that left a Malibu millionaire dead last fall was prompted partly by the desire of Los Angeles sheriff's deputies to seize the man's $5-million ranch. Donald P. Scott, a 61-year-old recluse, was killed when he allegedly pointed a pistol at a Los Angeles County sheriff's deputy during the Oct. 2 raid on his ranch across the Ventura County line from Malibu.
