Residents will get a chance over the next several months to comment on the city of Santa Clarita's plans to preserve a portion of the Santa Clara River as a natural recreation area, authorities said Monday. The proposed Santa Clara River Park would set aside a 14-mile stretch of the river that runs through the city, said John Danielson, the city's parks and recreation supervisor.

The state attorney general's office, joining the fractious debate over a proposed condominium project in Santa Clarita, on Monday severely criticized an environmental review of the project and called for it to be redone. Among other things, the original study ignores the fate of the unarmored three-spine stickleback, the attorney general's letter complained.

By early next century, old-style steam engines will take modern-day tourists on a trip through time, rumbling through working orange groves, stopping in historic old downtowns of Ventura County and dropping millions of tourist dollars on the local economy along the way.

As crews cleaned up oil spilled from a ruptured pipeline, officials Saturday expressed increased concern over environmental damage to the Santa Clara River and continued to monitor Ventura County water wells for contamination. Under overcast, drizzly skies, teams of biologists worked to assess the damage to the river, contaminated by more than 63,000 gallons of crude oil that gushed from a ruptured Mobil Oil pipeline Friday.
