The city of Ventura has an opportunity to build a much needed community park at the corner of Telephone Road, Kimball Road and the 126 Freeway. This is an ideal location that is central to much of Ventura. The 90-acre parcel has great freeway access with the new Kimball overpass. The park would include something for everyone, from ball fields to swimming, tennis, basketball, picnic areas, running bicycling, walking and a senior / community center. The city has saved more than $10 million to initiate the project.

Jim McConica's biological clock was ticking. It wasn't enough that he had the job, the wife, the kids, and the house on the hill a few blocks from the Ventura high school where he was a star swimmer in the late 1960s. Last summer, at 42, Jim McConica was running out of time. He had become his own ultimate nightmare, a man without a challenge. So he recycled an old one and devoted a year to it.

When a lack of funds was slowing progress on a swimming pool at Oxnard High School, the community took action. Now the community will soon have an Olympic-size pool to call its own. "It is sanctioned, so if [a competitive swimmer] breaks a record, it qualifies," said Lynn Mikelatos, chairwoman of the Oxnard Aquatic Foundation. The organization was formed April 1, 1995, to help raise funds for the pool project. According to Assistant Supt.

Despite protests from some smog-test business owners, the board of the Ventura County Air Pollution Control District agreed Tuesday to pursue legislation that will allow the county to establish large, centralized smog inspection stations. The larger stations would reduce the cost of smog tests to consumers, while giving the county a chance to greatly reduce emissions and meet its air quality goals, said Richard Baldwin, the county's top air pollution control officer.

Boosters of an Olympic-sized pool at Oxnard High School asked the Board of Education on Wednesday to support their effort to raise $1.5 million to pay for the swimming facility. The money is needed to build a 50-meter pool at the new Oxnard High campus under construction on Gonzales Road. School board members earlier this year pledged to build a pool at the new campus, but district officials have said it will be at least three years before they have enough money to pay for the pool.
