Only a few months after purchasing one of Orange County's largest housing developments, Lennar Corp. Thursday took control of the Stevenson Ranch, a giant 4,000-acre development in the Santa Clarita Valley. Miami-based Lennar, one of the nation's largest home builders, will complete construction of the planned community as managing partner of a joint venture with the Dale Poe Development Co., the Agoura-based company that started work on the Stevenson Ranch development about a decade ago.

A neighbor whose house was accidentally fired on by Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies during their standoff with gunman James Allen Beck has filed a $500,000 claim for damages, asserting that the county showed "deliberate indifference" to his safety. Phil Lombardi and his wife cowered with their 2-day-old daughter on their bathroom floor during the Aug. 31 shootout between Beck, the deputies and agents from the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.

While the eyes of the nation on Jan. 17 were on the destruction in the San Fernando Valley, the community of Stevenson Ranch was also mobilizing itself to deal with the earthquake. Stevenson Ranch is an area of 1,200 families near Magic Mountain in the western Santa Clarita Valley. It is about four miles from the quake's epicenter. What happened there demonstrates the value of a grass-roots community organization when a disaster occurs.
