Attorneys for the Ventura County Libertarian Party succeeded Friday in their fight to kick the Moorpark SOAR initiative off the November ballot, convincing a Superior Court judge that a technicality invalidates the signatures gathered to place it before voters. But leaders of the Save Open Space and Agricultural Resources campaign, who expected the ruling, said they have already collected more than 2,200 signatures to place their initiative before voters in a special election.

A 1st Amendment lawsuit recently filed against the county's Library Services Agency has prompted Camarillo leaders to shelve a request by the city library seeking a $150,000 donation for computers and books. The City Council's library committee decided against making a recommendation to the full council regarding the Friends of the Camarillo Library's funding request until the suit is settled.

LOUDOUN COUNTY, VA. Action: The board of directors for the county's public library system voted last fall to install filters on all of its machines. A vocal group of patrons protested, noting they couldn't get information dealing with sex education, breast cancer and, oddly enough, a Quaker Web site. Reaction: A group of residents--including Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Henry Taylor--and a community organization called Mainstream Loudoun filed suit against the board in U.S.

Free speech advocates in Ventura County are knocking heads with county officials over an attempt to keep Internet surfers away from pornography at public libraries. Ventura County's library system requires users of branch computer terminals to sign a form promising they will not view sexually explicit material. But such a requirement is unconstitutional, says the Libertarian Party of Ventura County in a lawsuit filed March 3.

Moorpark's nine schools have more than 100 portable classrooms. The high school gym is not big enough to hold an assembly of all students. And in five years, enrollment in the 7,800-student district is expected to swell by 21%--a demand that cannot be met at the already crowded campuses. These are the realities Moorpark Unified School District officials face as they work to win community support for a $33-million school bond measure on the March 5 ballot.

Ninth-grader Stafford Hilton visits Ventura County's E. P. Foster Library almost every day after school. For an hour, or "until I get kicked off," Stafford plays online computer games and browses Web sites at one of the 10 computers linked to the Internet. But Stafford's access is limited to "appropriate" sites not blocked by an Internet content filter. In other words, no violence, profanity, nudity, sexual acts, alcohol or drugs or sites that promote intolerance and hate.
