In a state where older buildings are often treated as if they were disposable stage sets, Santa Barbara is different. Over the last decade, more than 50 historic structures--ranging from the world-famous mission to a pair of bandstands, fig trees and watering troughs--have been declared official municipal landmarks, making it illegal to alter or demolish them. These days, however, a proposal to add the seaside Los Banos del Mar Pool to the roster is making waves.

The Los Banos del Mar swimming pool in Santa Barbara has been given official city landmark status, ending local concern that the Depression-era outdoor plunge would be torn down. The pool, among the last in a string of public pools and bathhouses that used to line the Southern California coast, was designated a landmark on a 6-1 vote of the Santa Barbara City Council on Tuesday.

Here's a story about Christmas in Southern California. I realize there are those who regard the phrase "Christmas in Southern California" as an oxymoron, believing that Christmas more or less fails to make an appearance here in paradise.

Leroy Villa, 79, and Mike Acosta, 71, are doing the same job at the same place their ancestors eight generations ago did in the 1780s. They're building a fort. Villa is a descendant of Vincente Villa, and Acosta, of Ildefonso Dominguez, two of the 55 soldiers who came here with their wives and children from Mexico in April, 1782. Their arrival marked the beginning of Santa Barbara. The soldiers constructed a large fortress behind two 11-foot-high defense walls.
