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.

Jostling over potential political opportunity, Thousand Oaks politicians and council candidates tonight will debate the fairest way to fill Councilman Frank Schillo's seat should he win election to the Ventura County Board of Supervisors. If Schillo moves on to represent Thousand Oaks in county government, he will vacate his council seat midway through a four-year term.

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.

Jim Monahan, Ventura city councilman I would say that there is no way that I would approve of a $35-million commitment to the Southwest Museum. However, there are other proposals that may be acceptable to the museum that we would like to explore. I would like to be better informed. I would like to see them come to Ventura and talk to us. I would think that if they were interested, they would come and talk to us, but I have spoken to no one. We're chasing our tail here trying to get them some money, and I think that they ought to at least come to a meeting and answer some questions in public.

The final tally was a familiar 3 to 2, but the result was decidedly unusual when Thousand Oaks Councilman Frank Schillo sided with the council's anti-growth faction early Wednesday to block a mid-sized housing development. The dozen residents still around for the 2:30 a.m. vote seemed too stunned even to applaud when Schillo cast his vote with Mayor Elois Zeanah and Councilwoman Jaime Zukowski to reject a 92-home project in Newbury Park.

Museum designer Al Fiori cannot keep still as he sketches his vision of a Native Peoples Center, a potpourri of ancient artifacts, modern crafts and live demonstrations that he dreams of establishing in Thousand Oaks. Gesturing broadly as ideas pop into his head, he describes the center as a new kind of museum, where 3-D television and holograms share space with dancing foreigners and scented herbs. He talks of bringing indigenous people from Peru and Brazil to speak.

This letter is in reference to Mr. Bill Gourley's letter (Sept. 1), called "Highhanded Tactics." Mr. Gourley is correct in that I am a financial consultant, that I am thoroughly skilled in financial matters and well qualified to plan for corporations' and individuals' financial futures. He intimates some wrongdoing for hiring an outside consultant without going through a bid process. It is perfectly legal and appropriate for the city to hire someone under a professional service contract without a bid process, if that person is the only one qualified for the job. Since the Fire Department which provides service to our city does not have any expense figure showing the cost of fire service in Thousand Oaks, it is now busy extracting figures from its gross budget to provide to the city.

The Ventura County Board of Supervisors is out of control. I can't believe that a county with a $13-million shortfall in revenues is going to spend $2.1 million on "longevity incentives." It just doesn't make good business sense. As if six weeks of annual leave in the first year of service isn't incentive enough, current economic conditions are such that city managers should be grateful to have jobs at all. I'm tired of my tax dollars serving the purpose of incentive. I propose an incentive plan for the county board to start controlling its own spending.

The Thousand Oaks City Council on Tuesday agreed to levy higher fees on new development to pay the city's share of upgrading fire stations, but only on the condition that the money go for facilities that directly serve the city. The fees are designed to raise a total of $4.7 million from the cities of Camarillo, Moorpark, Simi Valley and Thousand Oaks, and from unincorporated east county territory. The new levies will pay for construction of four new fire stations and relocation of two others.

It was mildly interesting to hear from a former, one-time county supervisor criticizing me for my concern about how our tax dollars are spent at the county level (Letters to the Editor, March 1). All of us who pay real estate taxes should be aware of the fact that we contribute 30% more than any other city in taxes paid to the county. Just try to remember when you last used a county service in Thousand Oaks. I was the only city councilperson to support this ex-supervisor when she ran for her first and only term because I thought she would secure county service we rightfully deserve.
