I know what hurt is," said the 41-year-old McCowan, sitting behind an immaculate mahogany desk in his large office. "I walked through it."

Evangelist Oral Roberts is scheduled to preach at Solid Rock Christian Center at 10:30 a.m. Sunday. Pastor Lonnie McCowan said it took him three years to get Roberts, who established a university in Tulsa, Okla., to speak at his church. It will mark Roberts' first visit to Ventura. "The Lord put it in my heart to be persistent," McCowan said, adding he did not know what the 80-year-old Roberts would discuss. The church is at 5105 Walker St. The phone number is 644-7722.

Roosevelt C. McCowan tried to swipe 18 bottles of drugstore cologne--and could wind up spending the rest of his life in prison. On March 8, McCowan entered a Sav-On store in Oxnard, picked up a backpack and loaded it with the fragrance bottles bearing labels from Pierre Cardin to Chaps. Stopped by security before he got out the door, McCowan later pleaded guilty to petty theft and expected a short prison term. Then prosecutors discovered something McCowan did not want them to see: his rap sheet.

The Church of Christ of Cypress, made up mostly of white senior citizens, was dying. Sixteen miles away in a small Santa Ana building, the Westside Church of Christ--filled with young African American families--was very much alive.
