April 20, 1992 | LYN RIDDLE, SPECIAL TO THE TIMES
Like something from an American history text, Robert E. Harris saunters into town atop his steadfast steed, Sundance, carrying only a weathered Bible and some religious pamphlets. Except for his white shirt, he is adorned in black: frock coat, pants, string tie and a 10-gallon Stetson. Dismounting, he turns to several astonished folks and begins preaching a simple Christian message. He does this every day there is good weather here in the mountain towns of western North Carolina.

Harris, garbed in Western boots, black frock coat, string tie and a black 10-gallon Stetson, allowed that his get-up also catches attention. Both "the horse and the outfit are the come-on," he said. "In this day and time to see a man dressed like this on a horse is like seeing a man from Mars.

Nestled near the bridge that crosses West Coast Highway at Newport Boulevard is an inconspicuous old restaurant.

It was 3 p.m. and Greenfield had just finished straining six crates of fresh raspberries--not once but three times--for her souffle's sauce.

With an Orange County citizens committee set to recommend a route today for the state's first toll road, county officials say factors beyond the committee's control make the San Joaquin Hills Corridor between Irvine and San Juan Capistrano the likely choice.
