I recently came across a short item that I clipped from the Dec. 2, 1992, issue of the Los Angeles Times Ventura County edition. The piece was headlined, "PC Users to Access Library Catalogues." At that time, Dixie Adeniran, director of Library Services, was reported as saying that their new computer system would enable users to access the catalogues from home via a modem connection. That access was to occur in "early 1993." Given the present deplorable state of governmental support for the library system in Ventura County, this would alleviate some of the problems of public access to the library's catalogues caused by shortened hours of operation.

Thanks to all the sponsors for the recently completed program "Bookin' at The Oaks," a summer-long promotion for local libraries and the fun of reading at The Oaks. This program included many activities that spotlighted books, as well as a book donation drive. "Bookin' at The Oaks' " goal of 10,000 donated books was achieved, thanks to the generosity of the people who participated in the book drive. Even though we've recently increased our hours of service in some libraries due to restructuring of our operations, libraries are nothing but buildings unless there are materials inside that people need.

I would like to inform readers of a recent seminar of animal shelter and humane organizations working to both control overpopulation of homeless animals through spaying and neutering, and to end euthanasia of companion animals through adoption, fostering, etc. Interested people call it "no-kill" and support stopping the killing of these animals in all but exceptional situations. Before that can happen, however, others in humane societies, rescue groups and animal fostering, kenneling, regulation and control need to come together in a spirit of loving kindness and cooperation to work for this goal.

A powerful opinion piece about a slain student and a hard news story on school bomb threats were two of the winners announced Friday at a high school journalism awards ceremony at The Times' editorial office in Ventura. Eight students from high schools throughout the county and one campus newspaper were recipients of the second annual Los Angeles Times Ventura County Edition High School Journalism Awards.

The Sierra Club, League of Women Voters and the Environmental Defense Center attacked a political advertisement by a farmers' group Thursday, saying it mistakenly implied they opposed Measure B, the countywide SOAR growth-control initiative. The three groups, which strongly support the Save Open Space and Agricultural Resources campaign, demanded their names be taken off the ad, which urged voters to "Vote Yes on Measure A. Vote No on Measure B."

We salute the nearly 80 Ventura County high school students graduating as valedictorians this year and offer a special thumbs-up to the winners of The Times' annual high school journalism awards. With smart and passionate young leaders such as these, Ventura County can be confident of a bright future. The best news, laid out in a report in today's edition of The Times, is that most of this year's valedictorians say they want to remain or return here after college.
