Describing flying dust, increased traffic and littered roadways, Santa Clara Valley property owners Tuesday denounced a county staff report that indicates that the operator of the Toland Road Landfill has met the requirements of its expansion permit. About a dozen residents told county supervisors about the nuisances and hazards they have had to put up with since the landfill near Santa Paula began taking more truckloads of trash six months ago. Also Tuesday, Santa Clara School District officials said they are working on plans to move the 100-year-old Little Red Schoolhouse, on California 126 near the landfill, because of increasingly heavy traffic on the roadway.

The Little Red Schoolhouse on the outskirts of Santa Paula prides itself on an old-fashioned style of education. Kindergartners sit next to sixth-graders--working out arithmetic problems or tapping on computers--under the tutelage of two teachers. The one-room school, with its 38 students, is one of the few remaining frontier schools in California. Its small scale provides an intimate atmosphere missing from most public schools.

The local sanitation district successfully defended itself in a lawsuit filed by a citizens' group that had sought to stop a landfill expansion, a judge has ruled. The cities of Fillmore and Oxnard, joined by the Santa Clara School District, residents and farmers, sued the Ventura Regional Sanitation District in 1996 after it announced plans to expand the Toland Road Landfill, located between Santa Paula and Fillmore.

The days of the birthday cupcake -- smothered in a slurry of sticky frosting and with a dash of rainbow sprinkles -- may be numbered in schoolhouses across the nation. Fears of childhood obesity have led schools to discourage and sometimes even ban what were once de rigueur grammar-school treats.

A state agency has concluded there is no active earthquake fault at the Toland Road Landfill, dealing another blow to opponents' efforts to stop the dump's expansion. After reviewing $250,000 worth of geologic studies, the Regional Water Quality Control Board said there is "no compelling evidence" a fault exists.
