The Rose Bowl might have the most popular flea market in Southern California, but its reputation comes with a steep admission price of $8 to $20. For more than 40 years, however, there's been a weekly and less crowded alternative at the Saugus Speedway and Swap Meet in Santa Clarita -- with a top entrance fee of $1.50. Hundreds of sellers and thousands of buyers converge nearly every Sunday and Tuesday, rain or shine, to sift through overstock items or goods out of attics and garages.

Despite objections from the city of Los Angeles, the Castaic Lake Water Agency has been awarded the right to buy the city-owned Saugus Rehabilitation Center for a water treatment plant. A Los Angeles Superior Court judge granted the water agency's request to obtain the 580-acre parcel late last month, agency General Manager Robert C. Sagehorn said Thursday. Located inside Santa Clarita, the parcel was the site of a defunct alcohol rehabilitation center.

The Los Angeles City Council on Tuesday voted to offer a long-abandoned, 520-acre parcel in Saugus for sale or lease. By an 11-0 vote, the city staff was directed to solicit bids for the Bouquet Canyon Road property, which the city bought in 1951 for use an alcoholic rehabilitation center, which closed in 1967. Several council members said the land should be leased out for use as a mobile home park to replace parks displaced by redevelopment in Los Angeles and elsewhere.

A Saugus man pleaded no contest Friday to manslaughter and drunk driving in an auto crash this spring that killed Nolan LeMar, the Castaic teenager who had been severely burned in a 1998 science experiment. Michael Charles Glover, 45, could face five years in state prison, according to the Los Angeles County district attorney's office. His sentencing is set for Feb. 5 in San Fernando Superior Court.

A brush fire scorched 10 acres in Saugus early Monday morning and an unrelated fire burned a patch of grass in Woodland Hills, fire officials said. The Saugus fire started in the 28000 block of Shadow Valley Lane in Bouquet Canyon, said Tammie Graciano, spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County Fire Department. About 40 firefighters battled the blaze while winds up to 10 m.p.h. blew through the canyon. The fire was extinguished shortly after 4 a.m., Graciano said.

It's the county's oldest restaurant, a place born of the railroad, where presidents have dined. Now the historic Saugus Cafe has been purchased by two veteran employees, adding a new twist to the venerable diner's 112-year history. In June, longtime waitress Gaye Libby and longer-time bartender Alfredo Mercado bought the 24-hour San Fernando Road eatery after years of working behind its counters--Libby for 11 years and Mercado for 15.

If ABC's "Coach" is the sports parlance ("A Last Hurrah for 'Coach' as It Leaves the Playing Field," May 7) of "the classic sixth man," then let's see what other shows the networks have sitting on their bench. Too bad the majority of their starting lineup is seldom as funny or consistent as "Coach" has been. DOUG ZABILSKI Saugus, CA

From the long ridge top of Liebre Mountain, a marvelous vista unfolds: the northwest corner of the San Gabriel Mountains, the Tehachapis, the sunbaked floor of the Antelope Valley. This is not gentle country. No wonder pioneer highway builders had such difficulty scraping out a roadway to connect Los Angeles with Bakersfield and the Central Valley. Constructing the highway in 1924 was quite a task.
