Somehow, despite an organized effort to run them out of Simi Valley, and the blistering remarks about how they smell and their bad teeth, and the jeers about their funny looks, Greg Dames' lowly llamas appear wholly unfazed. Never mind that Dames' neighbors asked the city to classify the beasts far below the lofty horse, down somewhere with barnyard and circus animals.

Its foes publish ominous ads warning that Wal-Mart will "invite . . . economic disaster" and "destroy Simi Valley." Its advocates say the giant discount store will boost sales tax revenues, bring more shoppers to Simi Valley and perhaps even lure someone to build the mall this city has dreamed of for so long. And before Wal-Mart has even applied for a building permit for its planned 135,000-square-foot mega-store, this city is abuzz.

Trying to keep up with the ever-changing real estate market in Southern California, the Simi Valley City Council on Monday night approved a plan that eventually may permit business and office buildings to mix with light-manufacturing plants on the west side of town.

The Simi Valley City Council tentatively approved a new ordinance Monday that restricts where adult entertainment businesses can operate in the city.

Since November, Simi Valley officials have been poised to slam the gates shut on the kennel and canine rescue center that Tom and Tina Dunn have operated for the past 10 years. The Dunns' next-door neighbor, concerned about barking and odors, had complained that the couple was running a commercial kennel, boarding up to 25 dogs.

A Las Vegas real estate entrepreneur who had proposed using part of a newly acquired Simi Valley shopping center as a nude bar has backed away from that plan and said he is no longer buying the center. Philip Young said Wednesday that community opposition to the proposed nude club and other factors led him to cancel his plans. The city had originally granted Young the zone clearance he needed to open the club, only to rescind the approval due to a lack of parking.

Simi Valley officials say the Federal Emergency Management Agency has reversed itself and removed from the city's designated flood plain 800 homes that it originally considered to be at risk of flooding. Mayor Greg Stratton announced the decision at the City Council's regular meeting Monday, saying the new designation means that owners of those homes will not have to spend an estimated $300 to $500 a year to buy flood insurance.
