After 1 1/2 years of public forums and hearings on the $1.8-million community center, the City Council has approved the conceptual design. In keeping with the building's rural theme, the council approved plans to design a wood-sided center with an open porch, a galvanized metal roof, a courtyard, a natural stone water fountain and a line of trees that are reminiscent of the groves that once existed on the property. The gymnasium will be stucco and designed to look like a barn.

A hopeful signpost greets travelers in search of history as they approach the cradle of southern Orange County mission country here. It tells them they have only another 1,200 feet to go to reach the famed Spanish settlement for which the town was named. But in less than the scant quarter-mile trip from the confluence of Interstate 5 and Ortega Highway to the solemn walls of Mission San Juan Capistrano, travelers confront several other signs: "Spicy Crispy Chicken Sandwich." "Jumbo Jack 99."

Tall and stately, with faded colors and logos of yesteryear, the vintage gasoline pumps loaded onto a truck here this week have long since gone dry. The man who collected them for 25 years says he's also on empty. David Chorak has been forced to sell his beloved collection of automotive memorabilia for a little more than half its $60,000 value to pay for his legal defense in, at least as he sees it, a fight to preserve his historic neighborhood.

There was a time when the San Juan Saloon was a rollicking bar and bordello, a way station for hard-living cowboys who herded cattle during the week and rode into town for a weekend on the town. With a hitching post and faded plank signs outside, the saloon survived over the years as a workingman's watering hole as growth and urbanization changed so much around it.
