A few years ago during shooting for an episode of the Angela Lansbury television series "Murder, She Wrote" a large truck stopped nearby and noisily dumped a load of manure. Concerned about disruption to their expensive on-location shooting, the film crew asked if the work could be delayed, recalled Don Gallagher, a permit inspector with Ventura County's Transportation Department. No problem, said the foreman. "He wanted $1,000 for every truck," Gallagher said, "and he had 40 trucks."

Re "Hollywood Discovers Ventura County," Aug. 4. Although we applaud the efforts of the Ventura County Film Council to promote filming in Ventura County, we want to clarify a fundamental misunderstanding in this article. The article accurately quoted the figure of $351 million from our recent economic impact report as the contribution made by the entertainment industry to Ventura County. But it was followed by an anonymous opinion attributed to the Ventura County Film Council, saying the figure was "inflated because it includes the salaries of stars who do not live in the county."
