He may have toned down the wild sex parties at his beach house, but adult video producer Stan Brunt says that he is still making movies and will fight any attempt to run him out of business. Brunt was told last month that he could no longer shoot videos or stage live sex shows in the palatial home because Ventura County zoning laws prohibited it. He has refused to stop, but he conceded Monday he now uses three or four people in a video instead of 40 or 50.

Wheeler Hot Springs, a historic spa and restaurant complex that has drawn generations of visitors to the hills north of Ojai for more than a century, may undergo a physical as well as financial transformation. If all goes as planned, a group buying the Ventura County landmark will raise $3.3 million from a stock offering to the public, then create a destination resort with 72 new guest units, expanded hot-tub facilities, tennis courts and new banquet and meeting rooms.

Ventura County residents can't have it both ways, the experts say. They can't save farmland while building large houses on big lots. They can't preserve the open space between their cities without changing the rules of city life. And they won't be able to keep their bucolic county the way it is without making some sacrifices along the way. But people just don't seem to get it, planners say. Not yet.

The Ventura County Board of Supervisors decided Tuesday that former President Ronald Reagan and his wife, Nancy, can be buried at his presidential library near Simi Valley. The supervisors unanimously approved the Reagans' burial request despite claims by an environmental group that the two-plot cemetery will result in more visitors to the library and more pollution to the county's air.

For the second time in two months, the Fillmore City Council has attempted to use zoning laws to block a sand-and-gravel mining operation proposed for 500 acres on Boulder Creek west of the city. The council voted Tuesday to send a letter to the state Mining and Geology Board, opposing a proposed zoning change that could aid Southern Pacific Milling Co.'s bid to mine Boulder Creek for 30 years.

The procession passes through the misty, twisting streets and vine-covered canyons of Santa Susana Knolls every day at sunrise. Scant traffic slows to an occasional standstill. Joggers stare. Dogs bark, and cats give chase. Because right there--right in the middle of the street, near that hairpin curve--strut peafowl. Gaggles of them. Peahens with dishwater-dull plumage peck at the asphalt.

They are the people next door. The folks who have become the nightmare of the neighborhood. They park on lawns, trash their yards and let their house paint peel. They fix cars on their driveways and patch broken windows with pieces of wood. Their roosters crow at dawn. Their houses are the ultimate in deferred maintenance. And they don't much care what anyone thinks about it. Throughout Ventura County, however, the official view of their casual approach to property maintenance is changing fast.
