The new Rancho Penasquitos branch library makes a bold, vaguely Southwestern statement in a community known for architectural conservatism, but its bulk and deep-red stucco are overbearing, and it has annoying flaws, including a chaotic blend of materials inside. No telling how the library--opened last month and San Diego's largest branch at 20,000 square feet--might have turned out had it been designed by the city library system's first- or second-choice architect.

San Diego City Council members bowed to the wishes of Rancho Penasquitos residents Tuesday in voting to locate a branch library in the suburban community's commercial center rather than on the rim of Los Penasquitos Canyon Park where Councilwoman Abbe Wolfsheimer and library officials would prefer it.

San Diego City Council members backed down Monday from a building moratorium they placed on the community of Rancho Penasquitos in December, granting permission for a major condominium project to proceed. Despite protests from community leaders and Councilwoman Abbe Wolfsheimer, the council voted 6-1 to lift the building freeze because of a threatened lawsuit, which Mayor Maureen O'Connor said posed "a very substantial financial exposure" to the city.

Two brush fires, one blamed on illegal dumping, the other on probable arson, kept firefighters busy Sunday but posed no threat to homes, authorities said. About 130 acres along Black Mountain Road in Rancho Penasquitos were burning around 2:30 p.m. Fire units from San Diego, the California Department of Forestry and the Zone 1 station in Rancho Santa Fe had the fire under control by 5:48 p.m. The cause of the blaze was undetermined and "will remain that way--meaning it won't be investigated," a San Diego fire spokeswoman said.

A bone marrow-typing drive drew 278 potential donors Sunday in an effort to find a match to help a 10-year-old Rancho Penasquitos boy who suffers from an often-fatal blood disorder. Attendance was under the organizer's expected 400 participants, and far below the 630 people tested in June at the first such drive. "We're not disappointed, we're just going to keep working away at it," said Lynn Stedd, spokeswoman for the San Diego Blood Bank that ran the drive for Kyle Varonfakis.

Old Black Mountain Road, once a bumpy trail for the Butterfield stagecoach and now a dusty route for inland commuters to the coast, will remain open despite concerns by San Diego city officials that its users may sue the city for megabucks one of these days. Impassioned pleas by drivers who use the east-west roller coaster in lieu of crowded Interstate 15 or even more crowded Mira Mesa Boulevard convinced San Diego City Council members that the substandard "back door" from Rancho Penasquitos should remain open until a paved, safe alternative is built.

A day in the life at San Diego City Hall, or: It was only a Panasonic but people reacted like it was a python. The fun began when Alan F. Dickey, chairman of the Rancho de Los Penasquitos Planning Board, took a tape recorder to last week's meeting of a citizens committee organized by Councilwoman Abbe Wolfsheimer. The 1st District Rancho Penasquitos Park Allocation Committee is supposed to recommend how to spend $2.2 million in developer fees for open space. Its previous meeting was taped by the city staff.
