If the men who built the railroad from Puerto Limon to San Jose, Costa Rica, in the 1940s had lived up to their promise, chances are Roy Myers would not be playing for the Galaxy this weekend. In fact, he probably would not even exist. But those men went back on their word. They brought in workmen from the Caribbean to hack a path through the tree-clad mountains and to lay the railroad track. Then, the organizers simply abandoned the workers. Myers' grandfather was one of those laborers.

When Sigi Schmid initiated the trade that brought Roy Myers to the Galaxy three months ago, his intent was to provide some backup for Mauricio Cienfuegos. "We felt we needed one more midfielder in case there was an injury to Mauricio," Schmid said, "and we also felt we needed somebody who could be a playmaker when teams shut him [Cienfuegos] down. "Roy has certainly given us that." And more.

The city's latest experiment in public transit, a shuttle that circles among seven local shopping destinations, has failed. Because of a lack of interest from the public, the shoppers' shuttle, which was intended to ease parking and traffic congestion around Thousand Oaks' malls, will stop running on New Year's Eve, barely a month after it was launched, city officials said Friday. In November, the City Council approved the shoppers' shuttle for the holiday shopping season.

A group of angry Thousand Oaks neighbors is fighting to keep a scenic stretch of Potrero Road from becoming another Ventura Freeway. Residents such as Michele Bellerue say their houses are deceptively peaceful at midday, with hawks soaring above the national park across the street and even quail scurrying on the road. But on weekday mornings, the scene changes. The roadway in front of her residence becomes a busy commuter route used by truckers and motorists alike, Bellerue said.
