With the political heat rising, U.S. Rep. Elton Gallegly (R-Simi Valley) says he has taken no stand on a controversial proposal by developers to exchange land with the National Park Service so they can build a tournament golf course and 1,152 homes in the lawmaker's district. Gallegly has been courted by both sides in the emotional battle, involving federal parkland in scenic Cheeseboro Canyon and the adjacent Jordan Ranch in eastern Ventura County, owned by entertainer Bob Hope.

In a rare display of public discord, three state appeals court justices appeared to disagree Thursday over how the laws apply to the attempt by state park authorities to seize Soka University's scenic campus in Calabasas. Justices of the 2nd District Court of Appeal appeared split over whether to dismiss the case on procedural grounds or whether to attack more substantial questions raised by lawyers for the university and the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy.
