A hard-nosed petition drive by Simi Valley Councilwoman Sandi Webb and a misleading federal aid application succeeded Friday in killing earthquake repair funds for the controversial junk-art site known as Bottle Village. FEMA Director James Lee Witt on Friday withdrew $505,999 in federal and state money that supporters had begun spending to repair damage that the 1994 Northridge earthquake did to the cluster of whimsical buildings at Bottle Village.

Each day, Janice Wilson breezes down a typical Simi Valley street, past rows of look-alike houses, to a ramshackle one-acre fantasy land. * There, beneath a dozen drooping eucalyptus trees, Wilson tends to a collection of miniature trees dripping with toothbrushes, buildings made of bottles, and gardens sprouting doll heads and bedsprings.

Bottle Village has been called many things in its quirky 30-year history in Simi Valley. An eyesore. Folk art. A historic landmark. Now, as cities statewide survey buildings for potential earthquake hazards, Bottle Village has been named one of only two unreinforced masonry structures in the Ventura County city. But no one has to tell the Preserve Bottle Village Committee that the odd collection of bottle-and-mortar huts--or their organization--lies on shaky ground.
