In the perfect solitude of the Santa Lucia Mountains beside an old family graveyard where deer and wild pigs are the only regular visitors, the great-grandson of a pioneer rancher talked about "Los Angelization" in a tone of voice normally reserved for drought or taxes. "It could be the ruination of our way of life if something isn't done about it pretty soon," said Billy Warren, whose family acquired their 10,000-acre cattle ranch in the late 1800s.

The postcard arrived last September and was basically a thoughtful goodby note from a Times reader. His name was Tom Lister and he lived in Costa Mesa, and he wrote to say he and his wife Sherry were packing up and moving to her hometown of Norfolk, Neb. One phrase in his postcard stuck in my mind: "We want to see if the madness is everywhere or just endemic to Orange County," Lister wrote, referring as we all do from time to time to the swirling pace of Southern California life.

One man remembered taking baths in a big metal tub. Another man had skinned a skunk on his way to school and was sent home because he smelled so bad. A third stole watermelons for fun. These folks--and about 150 other men and women--gathered at Knott's Berry Farm on Saturday to remember the good times they had in the small Midwestern town of Boone, Iowa. They're part of a society formed in memory of the town, which boasts ownership of what they describe as the last steam engine train.

Despite the dramatic increase in the price of Southern California apartments last year, those buildings are not overvalued, nor is the rapid appreciation indicative of a "price bubble," according to a UCLA multifamily-housing forecast released Wednesday. The per-unit prices for apartments in Los Angeles, Orange and San Diego counties rose by more than 15% in 2001, provoking worry among some real estate analysts that a "bubble" was on the horizon.
