The state wants to dig five extraction wells at a former trash dump in Rolling Hills Estates to prevent contaminated ground water from seeping farther into Torrance. The wells would be installed along Crenshaw and Hawthorne boulevards near the boundary between the former county landfill and the Torrance city line. Ground water contaminated with arsenic and other dangerous chemicals has oozed 500 to 800 feet from the landfill site into the neighboring city.

The neighborhood post office in Rolling Hills Estates will stay open, postal officials decided after residents begged them not to close the city landmark. Postal Service spokesman Larry Dozier said the decision to keep the facility open came partly because of widespread community opposition to the closure. He said the Los Angeles district headquarters received scores of letters and calls imploring officials to reconsider their plans.

Building and safety officials in Rolling Hills Estates have teamed up with county engineers to study a landslide area that forced officials to demolish two office buildings this week and threatens to topple another structure. Employees from 18 small businesses evacuated two buildings last week as walls began to warp and sidewalks buckled. A third building was closed to everyone except tenants, but that building began slipping this week and forced building officials to close it.

Los Angeles County safety experts Thursday scrambled to determine what is causing the major landslide that has undermined a hilltop office park in the aptly named South Bay community of Rolling Hills Estates. Workers from 18 small businesses evacuated two buildings Wednesday afternoon as the walls began to warp, windows cracked under pressure and sidewalks outside buckled. The buildings were temporarily condemned by county firefighters, and a third was closed to everyone but tenants.

The peacock wars have started again in the woodsy neighborhoods of the Palos Verdes Peninsula, this time in Rolling Hills Estates where flocks of the exotic birds roost in tall pines and troop majestically across well-tended yards. While the peacocks have their ardent defenders, not everyone is thrilled by the sight of the big, brilliantly plumed birds. Nor does everyone like the sharp, plaintive calls that sound very much like a cry for "elp! 'elp!"

Ida Drapkin, the amateur horticulturist who called herself the Fuchsia Lady, has died. Drapkin died of lymphoma Wednesday at her home in Rancho Palos Verdes. She was 78. She was fanatical about the fuchsia plant--the bush with exotically hued blossoms that dangle like lanterns. Images of her obsession covered her wallpaper and bedding, filled her closets and picture frames and decorated her china and hand-embroidered pillows. Her license plates read FUCHSIA.

Spend two weeks crossing Costa Rica from the Caribbean to the Pacific by mountain bike, raft and foot. Participants traverse rugged mountain ranges, deep valleys and rushing rivers along a network of trails, back roads and river routes, escorted by adventure guides experienced in outdoor wilderness and safety procedures. Instruction will be given throughout the tour, so outdoor expertise is not a prerequisite, although participants should be moderately fit.
