As she does regularly, Beth Perry took her year-old twins, Tom and Ann Welker, to Rancho Simi Community Park in Simi Valley on Thursday. But unlike most of their visits, the three made the one-mile trip from home to the park by car. "It was way too hot to walk, especially with the stroller," said Perry, as she and the children sat in the shade of two leafy trees. "This park is nice and cool and the breeze blows through."

Chet Palys knew exactly what he was looking for Thursday as he strolled along the Hueneme Pier in Port Hueneme. "The breeze," he said. "That's how you cool off. I just came from Ojai. It was 90. It was hot, stifling. I don't like the heat." Scores of Ventura County residents looked for ways to keep cool as summer-like weather and warm temperatures swept through much of the county.

It resembles parsley in color and appearance, but the smell and taste of cilantro make it a far cry from its blander, parsley relative.

Ventura County's unseasonably cool summer came to an abrupt end this week as the hottest blast of the season teamed with sticky humidity to leave no doubt, especially in valley areas, that the dog days have arrived. Triple-digit temperatures just shy of record-breakers scorched Simi Valley and Ojai on Thursday. It was 99 in Thousands Oaks. Midday heat has hovered in the mid- to upper 90s for the past week, said Gary Ryan, meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Oxnard.
