No Main Street Pride

October 11, 1994

The sidewalks on Ventura's Main Street near the bus-provided benches and public telephones are like open sewers. The walks reflect the nightly episodes of conflict, leaving their stains of blood and urine.

There are suggestions about beautifying old Ventura. Why spend the money where there is so little civic pride?

The kids on skateboards whiz and whirl upon pedestrians, frightening timid old people like me.

When I talked to a local merchant, he said that he feared reporting them.
