I'd like to thank the Ventura County Sheriff's Department for the outstanding job they did at this year's Conejo Valley Days. As always, our police kept the small-town feel of our event while being vigilant for anything that could go wrong with such a large crowd. Particular thanks to Chief Deputy Bob Brooks, Thousand Oaks Police Chief Kathy Kemp, Sgt. Claude Robillard, Sgt. Will Howe Sr., Deputy Mike De Los Santos and all the other men and women out there too numerous to mention.

Re "Impact of Proposed Golf Course Under Study," July 4. Why is it that Joy Meade is never referred to in your newspaper as Linda Parks' campaign manager and the organizer of the recalls against Judy Lazar and Andy Fox, yet Jill Lederer, who has not been Fox's campaign manager since 1994 and who has done many other things in the community, is always referred to as Fox's campaign manager and the leader of the recall against Elois Zeanah? Do Joy Meade, Linda Parks or Elois Zeanah hold some special privilege the public doesn't know about or are you just trying to make an unlevel playing field for those who have the guts to be honest?

Supporters of embattled Councilwoman Elois Zeanah, who is facing a Nov. 4 recall election, announced Tuesday that they have formed a committee to defend Zeanah against opponents' charges. Zeanah's chief political ally, Councilwoman Linda Parks, will manage the group, called Committee Against the Recall of Elois Zeanah, or CARE. The group does not have much money, Parks said, compared with rival group Yes!

Edward Masry's sense of smell is obviously as impaired as his sense of ethics ("The Man Behind the Money," Jan. 11). I consider it totally unfair that your newspaper allows him to character-assassinate 15-year resident Jill Lederer who you know has no more than Thousand Oaks' best interests at heart (before the recall, she was well-known for her involvement in this community) without at the very least setting the record straight. I realize that the profile was of Masry, but your paper presented a very favorable review of Masry's spending while castigating Lederer for the past year for putting her money where her mouth was. Lederer stood up for what she believed in at great personal cost to herself.

I am writing to add my support for the argument presented by Fred Sheridan of Thousand Oaks in his Aug. 24 letter concerning Jill Lederer, owner of several Domino's Pizza shops. Mr. Sheridan made some very appropriate points and there is no need to repeat them here. However, there is one point that bothers me that has not been raised. If Ms. Lederer, an accomplished businessperson, is willing to invest more than $125,000 to reshape the City Council, I would expect that she must be looking for something in return from that City Council.

I am a longtime resident, but I have never taken a public stand on a political issue or written a letter to the editor. I have restricted my volunteer hours to service clubs and military organizations. I would have maintained my silence if I were not so offended that Jill Lederer, who doesn't even live in our city, is leading and bankrolling a recall campaign against one of our local elected officials, Councilwoman Elois Zeanah. There is no malfeasance, so a recall is not justified.

The committee working to recall Councilwoman Elois Zeanah spent $175,123 during the first six months of this year--nearly three times the highest amount ever spent to elect anyone in this city, campaign finance reports released Thursday show. That brings the total spent in this year's recall battles, which includes a separate campaign against Mayor Judy Lazar and Councilman Andy Fox, to about $192,000. Yes!

To her friends, she is the Thomas Paine of the pizza biz, bravely spreading the good word about a bad politician on the boxes of outgoing pies. To her foes, she is the Cruella De Vil of deep dish, harnessing her pepperoni-based power source for nefarious political purposes. In her own view, Jill Lederer is neither, though "The Pizza Queen," as she has become known, concedes the rags-to-riches story of her Domino's pizza empire does have an all-American, fairy-tale quality.

Lederer takes over from Walt Schaedle, who remains on the executive council as vice chairman for the Conejo Valley Days Council.
