Raising legal questions and the ire of area residents, the cash-strapped Casitas Municipal Water District is pushing to build a 300-acre recreation area on the federally protected watershed it manages. The proposal, subject to approval by the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, includes plans for a 27-hole golf course, an equestrian center with 30 horses and two dozen rental cottages to be built on the Teague Memorial Watershed, situated just north of Lake Casitas near Ojai.

As Elodia Moreno sat in the shade outside her motor home north of Ojai, relaxing by the water on the first day of a long holiday weekend, she tried to ignore the cars speeding by just yards away. The turnout on California 33, several hundred yards south of Wheeler Gorge Campground, wasn't Moreno's first choice for a campsite. But the piece of pavement picked by Moreno and her husband, Mike, overlooked a stream. Besides, it was the only site available in the area.

A committee of community leaders, hikers, equestrians and cyclists has come together in the first effort to link several hundred miles of trails in Ventura County. Ventura County's 10 cities all have trails, but they are not connected, said Ron Blakemore, a county parks department worker and the committee's program administrator. "We're going to try to bridge that damn wall between cities and get things connected," Blakemore said.

In the midst of the drought, the water level at Lake Casitas dropped so low that a lone tree poked up out of the water as a constant reminder of the dry spell. The number of visitors to the lake near Ojai plummeted as well, but now that the lake is full again, the numbers are soaring. During March, an estimated 82,000 people used the lake--20,000 more than March of last year. "It's been packed," park services manager Doug Ralph said. "And April will be bigger than March."
