Re "EIS Warranted at Rocketdyne," Ventura County editorial, June 4, and the response from James T. Davis of the U.S. Department of Energy (Ventura County Letters, June 18). I have been active for 11 years to help assure the community that Rocketdyne is doing a thorough cleanup of the polluted site. As a public member of the Environmental Protection Agency oversight panel, I have attended all the meetings and read and listened to all the presentations. I was, therefore, pleased to see the editorial staff of the Los Angeles Times take a stand for the people regarding an effective cleanup.

Although the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks have left Ventura County with an uncertain economic future, business leaders remained cautiously optimistic Friday that things will get back to normal. "It'll take awhile before things kick back in," Charles Maxie, dean of Cal Lutheran University's School of Business, told the more than 200 people who attended the 2001 Business Outlook Conference at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum.

Neil Schmidt, former superintendent of the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District and once the schools chief in Fillmore, has taken the helm of Ventura County's second-largest school district. Conejo Valley Unified School District officials this week hired Schmidt as interim superintendent while they search for a permanent replacement for former schools chief Jerry Gross. After eight years in the Thousand Oaks district, Gross left in June to head a larger school district in Orange County.

"Our goal was to create a theater of the community--the people and energy of Ventura County," said Dana Elcar of his 4-year-old Santa Paula Theatre Center. "Before we did anything, we had nine months of workshops. Over that period, 175 people came. Out of that, a core group of 40-50 developed--30 actors, the rest in other areas of production--interested in the idea of forming a theater."

In an effort to curb a string of blackouts that have plagued the Ventura County Government Center--power outages caused by California's ongoing energy crisis--supervisors Tuesday will consider spending $4 million on emergency generators. The generators would allow the center, home to the county's administrative and public safety offices, to run with full power, avoiding the late afternoon blackouts that have shut down computers, elevators and overhead lights.

There's a new art gallery in town, and it's off the beaten path in more ways than one. Visitors to Saturday's Ventura Artwalk will have to venture a few blocks from the main downtown corridor to find it, but it's worth the extra mile. The Atget Photo Gallery has opened in the Main Street space once occupied by the Frame Seller. This is good news for aficionados of fine-art photography, still an offbeat stepchild of the art world.

In a major bid to plug into cheaper, "greener" energy sources, Ventura County has begun installing solar panels on fire stations and buying hybrid vehicles powered by gas and electricity. Twelve of the county's 31 fire stations are at least partly run on solar energy, and another dozen may join them soon.

It isn't often that an environmental column has something good to say about a movie. But now there is a constructive movie out about the environment and--surprise--it's a comedy. Readers of this column will get a bang out of director David Zucker's latest comedy, "Naked Gun 2 1/2," opening this weekend countywide. It's about electric cars. And John Sununu. Sound funny? I got an early peek and I thought it was. Then I called Zucker's Ojai home and was told he was on another call.

As California struggles to provide uninterrupted power, Ventura County air quality officials and a Texas-based energy company announced Friday an agreement that boosts electricity production from an Oxnard power station now with the promise of cutting smog later. Power plants in the nation's smoggiest state are strictly regulated to fight pollution, and the controls often limit the amount of time they can operate in a given year.
