During a long, strange Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors hearing Tuesday, spectators were treated to a defense of housewives, activists wearing face paint, and intense opposition to the expansion of the Chiquita Canyon Landfill. In the end, the board voted 4 to 0 to approve a controversial landfill expansion agreement between Laidlaw Waste Management Inc. and the Val Verde Civic Assn.

Val Verde has its very own version of the Brooklyn Bridge--only in this case it really is for sale. Eager buyers have been turning up lately at auctions to buy a piece of hilly land known as Tract 890, which was subdivided into hundreds of tiny lots in the early 1930s and marketed as ripe for oil speculation.

Odis Sneed's rooster no longer crows at sunrise in Val Verde, and the silence speaks volumes about the way the village is changing. Sneed, who has kept roosters for three decades in the community five miles west of the Golden State Freeway in the Santa Clarita Valley, recently got rid of the bird after his new neighbors complained about the incessant crowing. He is not worried that some of the hamlet's country atmosphere disappeared with the last cock-a-doodle-do.

Allowing Chiquita Canyon Landfill in Val Verde to expand its capacity tenfold would significantly harm the area's air quality, draw more traffic and simply isn't necessary, dump opponents told county planning commissioners Wednesday night. "Please remember, we are human beings and deserve a clean and safe community," said Jose Vega, a resident of the small Val Verde community that lies west of the Golden State Freeway and north of Six Flags Magic Mountain.

While Val Verde's municipal pool undergoes major renovations this summer, free transportation to Castaic Lake is being provided for local children who would otherwise have little to do in the rural hamlet north of Magic Mountain. Twice a week throughout the summer, up to 60 children ages 7 to 17 can escape the heat by taking a free bus to the lake under a Los Angeles County program that began earlier this month.
