Supervisor Frank Schillo was recovering in an Oxnard hospital after undergoing triple bypass heart surgery Friday and could be back to work in three to four weeks, his doctor said. "He's awake and talking," said Dr. Richard Declusin, who performed the surgery at St. John's Regional Medical Center. "It went quite well." A Schillo spokesman said Thursday that the Thousand Oaks politician had suffered a mild heart attack.

Underscoring growing tensions between members of the Ventura County Board of Supervisors, the chairman of the panel said Tuesday he wants a law that would ban "grandstanding" by the politicians. Supervisor Frank Schillo said some cities have adopted similar laws and that the county needs one to govern how individual board members deal with each other and the public.

Taking barely a moment to celebrate their primary election victories, the four finalists for two seats on the Ventura County Board of Supervisors were already gearing up Wednesday for a November runoff that promises much harder-hitting campaigns. Veteran Thousand Oaks Councilman Frank Schillo will square off against first-time candidate Trudi Loh in a race that is expected to be dominated by growth issues.

The Ronald Reagan Presidential Library is negotiating to bring a jet and limousine once used by the former commander-in-chief to the hilltop museum. Ventura County Supervisor Frank Schillo said he was told last week that the library will acquire a plane that served as Air Force One during Reagan's two terms. Library officials refused to comment Monday. Schillo said library foundation director Mark Burson told him the library is getting one of the 40th president's bulletproof limousines.

Ventura County Sheriff Larry Carpenter has endorsed county supervisor candidate Frank Schillo. Schillo, a Thousand Oaks councilman, is running against attorney Trudi Loh for the 2nd Supervisorial District seat being vacated by Maria VanderKolk. The district covers most of the Conejo Valley and Port Hueneme. Carpenter said Schillo, who is also supported by the county's Deputy Sheriffs Assn., has had a solid working relationship with law enforcement for years.

I'd like to take this post-election time to thank you for your endorsement of the Schillo for supervisor campaign and, in all humility, I want to thank the voters for their overwhelming support in returning me to office. I cannot help believing that others will follow the lead that I have taken in the 2nd District to reduce campaign contributions and spending and in their place get more people involved in walking the precincts and getting the message out.

Apparently Lee Laxdal doesn't get it (Letters, Feb. 9). Elois Zeanah is the cause of the viciousness and untruths on the Thousand Oaks City Council. She always has been and as long as she is in office, she always will be. She orchestrated the attempted recalls of Laxdal's colleagues, Alex Fiore and Frank Schillo, and she has orchestrated the retaliatory recalls against Andy Fox and Judy Lazar. Yes, recall is tough medicine, but for our beautiful Thousand Oaks it is the only cure. Zeanah should be recalled; thank God some people finally had the courage to do something about it besides talk.

Your recent article on proposed changes to the copper curtain was an excellent preview of more coming attractions from Councilwoman Judy Lazar. From the beginning, Lazar played the starring role to spend $210,000 for this copper experiment they called "art." On a 3-2 vote, supporters were Alex Fiore and Frank Schillo. I don't think another dime should be spent on this eyesore of a building which Lazar continues to call a masterpiece. If the city insists on wasting $10,000 more on this building, I have a fitting proposal: Paint a picture of Fiore, Schillo and Lazar on the curtain itself.

Re "Supervisors Criticized for Favoring Raise," June 16. I was totally misrepresented in this article, which indicated that I needed a car allowance and mileage to pay for my Mercedes coupe. This is totally false. First, I didn't say I needed the money. Second, I do not own a Mercedes. There has been much discussion about car allowance and mileage expenses for the Board of Supervisors. I did say and it was not reported that I asked for a no-cost internal study to determine if it would be cost-effective to the taxpayers if board members received a county car and no mileage allowance.

To say that my statements in the article "Recall: Fiore, Schillo May Face Voters" on Jan. 27 were misleading is an understatement; my meaning was that Thousand Oaks Councilman Alex Fiore represents all segments of his constituency very well, not just the "older longtime residents." For example, he was personally responsible for establishing the Youth Center as well as other programs and projects related to youth. Every action that Alex Fiore and Frank Schillo have taken has been with the best interest of our citizens at heart.

Ventura County Supervisor Frank Schillo's summer vacation has ended up costing him a little more than expected. In his absence, the Ventura County Transportation Commission voted Friday to take away a $50-a-month payment he receives for serving as a commissioner. The motion to ban payments for county supervisors was made by Supervisor Steve Bennett, who was Schillo's alternate on the commission.

An open letter to Gov. Gray Davis: I am respectfully requesting that you convene an extraordinary session of the Legislature to address fiscal equity for California's local governments. California's local governments provide much of the infrastructure and many of the services that support economic growth and ensure our state's quality of life. Where would our taxpayers be without clinics and hospitals for the working uninsured or treatment programs and housing for the mentally ill or the substance abuse treatment and counseling programs for youth?

Although it has been little more than a month since voters approved SOAR, Ventura County supervisors are already in disagreement over how best to implement the growth-control measure. Supervisor Kathy Long has split with her colleagues John Flynn and Frank Schillo over their proposal to establish an implementation committee that they would lead.

Councilwoman Elois Zeanah should be ashamed of herself for attempting to use tax dollars to televise the activities of her political action group, Citizens Q of L Action Alliance. Apparently, the councilwoman is unaware of the financial crisis devastating the state of California, its coun ties and cities. People are out of work, police officers and firefighters are being laid off and libraries are closing. To suggest the expenditure of public funds for such an obvious campaign of self-promotion and aggrandizement is the height of arrogance and impropriety.

At its March 10 meeting the Oxnard City Council could have made history by heeding the will of the citizens of Oxnard. The council should have embraced the Save Open Space and Agricultural Resources initiative as Ventura County Supervisors John K. Flynn and Frank Schillo have. Instead they choose to do nothing. Actually, they did the same old thing: They talked but said nothing. SOAR will now go to the people and gather signatures. The City Council would do well to clear the council chambers of furniture as we will bring them wheelbarrows full of petitions.

Ventura County Supervisors Frank Schillo and Judy Mikels have an obvious edge over their opponents in the June 2 election. They each have wide name recognition and are experienced politicians who can converse freely about their records on a multitude of issues--from welfare reform to economic growth--facing the county. By contrast, their respective opponents, Vince Curtis and Jon Palo, have never held elected office, and Curtis has never voted in a local election.
