Residents of the Santa Ynez Valley, where Michael Jackson's Neverland Ranch lies, are trying to squash any potential tourism the King of Pop's old stomping grounds might draw to the area, with nostalgia for the late Thriller singer at an all-time high following his death last month.

"We have received mixed messages, some reassuring, some troubling," Never! spokesman Bob Field said. "We'd like clear, concrete signs that there are no plans to pursue turning this into a tourist attraction."
