The state Supreme Court, reviewing a widely watched environmental dispute, was asked Thursday to limit the alternative sites that local officials must consider before approving proposed developments. The case, along with a second dispute argued before the high court this week, posed a sharp clash between developers trying to combat needless delays and slow-growth forces trying to thwart what they see as environmentally harmful projects.

An aircraft will fly over Santa Barbara County's wine country this year, snapping photographs of sprawling oak woodlands in the picturesque countryside. County officials hope the aerial mapping will form a comprehensive database that will help strike a balance between environmentalists who want to save the oak trees and those who want them bulldozed to make way for new vineyards.

Many Southern Californians expressed little sympathy for drought-weary Santa Barbara as water rates tripled, lawns turned brown and vegetation withered and died. Santa Barbara deserved its fate, critics of the city's water policy said. Residents had the chance to obtain an additional water supply in 1979, but rejected it when they voted against tying into the State Water Project, partly to control growth. Now residents have another chance--a final chance--for state water.

Ellwood Shores, where hawks forage in the fields and monarch butterflies winter in the eucalyptus groves, seems an unlikely battleground.

Residents of this former company town have worried about a growth-limiting water shortage for more than 30 years, but now things are looking up.

As city officials consider various proposals for emergency water supplies, the longstanding controversy over whether Santa Barbara County should tie into the state Water Project has again resurfaced. For decades, the issue of state water has divided the community on the issue of growth. Many city officials say they do not want state water because they fear that greater water resources will result in more development, which would simply create new water shortages.
