You hear it all the time. . . . "I can't believe you live in Orange County and you hardly ever go to the amusement parks!" scold your out-of-town friends. "Why, if we lived there, we'd be at a different one every week!" Forgive them, they know not what they say. As any local knows, a day at any Southland tourist spot can put a serious dent in the household budget.

In print, Snoopy's wardrobe is fairly limited: red flannel pajamas, a snazzy Flying Ace costume, a simple yellow rain slicker for the occasional downpour. But next week, as Snoopy celebrates his 40th birthday, he and his sister Belle are going haute couture . They will be outfitted by top designers from all over the world when 300 plush Snoopy and Belle dolls show up in custom-made clothes from such high-fashion creators as Giorgio Armani, Karl Lagerfeld and Christian Lacroix.

Gov. Jerry Brown has cleared the way for California to begin issuing license plates adorned with the classic Peanuts beagle, Snoopy. Revenue generated from the specialized plate sales will benefit the California Cultural and Historical Endowment and fund museums statewide under AB 482, proposed by Assemblywoman Toni Atkins (D-San Diego). Brown signed the bill earlier this month. More than 9,200 Californians have pledged to buy one of the plates, according to Atkins.

He may not be taking on the Red Baron in this one, but Snoopy may soon be seen on the back of some California cars. The state Assembly passed a bill Thursday that would establish a Snoopy license plate to benefit California museums. AB 482, introduced by Assemblywoman Toni Atkins (D-San Diego), passed with a vote of 57-19. The bill, which now goes to the Senate, would allow the California Cultural and Historical Endowment to use the revenue from the plate to create a new grant program to support small capital projects at museums.

When Guilford Glazer set out 21 years ago to build the Del Amo Fashion Center in Torrance, there were those who thought he was creating the shopping-center equivalent of Frankenstein's monster. "Some of the very top people in the industry thought it would be too big and wouldn't work, and we were concerned about it," Glazer said. "But it was really personal opinion." And Glazer ignored it.

Gerald Blackburn walked out of his office and surveyed the ruins of what was once the nerve center of America's space race. The vast debris field with giant cranes nosing through heaps of broken concrete and metal sheeting had been home to the Downey Industrial Site, a 160-acre campus southeast of Los Angeles where engineers like Blackburn designed the spacecraft that put Americans on the moon. The largely abandoned buildings were leveled over the holidays to make way for a big-box retail center.
