In response to traffic accidents caused by drivers going too fast on Lynn Road at Gainsborough Road in Thousand Oaks, deputies will be out in force today through Saturday making sure people obey the 45 mph speed limit, said Sgt. Ken Bailey.

Authorities are searching for a healthcare reform supporter who they said bit off the fingertip of a 65-year-old man during a fight at a MoveOn.org rally in Thousand Oaks. The incident occurred about 7 p.m. Wednesday at a "We Can't Afford to Wait" vigil organized by affiliates of the activist group MoveOn.org, which drew supporters of President Obama's healthcare plan, said Senior Deputy Eric Buschow of the Ventura County Sheriff's Department. The rally also attracted several counter-protesters, he said.

With a developer unable to pay its share for a road project, the Thousand Oaks City Council is considering a scaled-back plan for widening a portion of Lynn Road in Newbury Park to four lanes. Council members voted 4 to 0 Tuesday to study widening the road and possibly some of the sidewalks, but not the sewers or curbs. Members rejected another option--using $1.9 million in federal transportation money to pay for the full project.

We moved to Newbury Park eight years ago, because of the quality of life we perceived was here. Now we are seriously considering moving out of the Thousand Oaks area because of the lack of responsible government to preserve that quality of life. Specifically, I am concerned about the traffic impact on the Newbury Park area because of a flawed traffic study that will directly affect the health and safety of every citizen in the area. The traffic study contains an arbitrary assumption that 30% of all traffic from the 2,350-unit Dos Vientos Ranch development will travel on Borchard Road and 70% will use Lynn Road.

Frank Schillo, City councilman, Thousand Oaks Yes. There are so many people that are concerned about it. I have asked the mayor to set up a meeting, and there will a public hearing Tuesday. The Planning Commission approved this 4 to 1, and it wasn't appealed, so it never came to the City Council. There were only three or four people at the meeting who objected to it. It will be a Mediterranean building with towers on two of the corners. One of the towers goes up 43 feet. The Planning Commission insisted it have a big setback from the corner, but even so, it's still a pretty imposing building.

Opponents of a plan to extend Lynn Road in Newbury Park have lost their battle to stop the project. The Thousand Oaks City Council voted 4 to 1 last week to speed a $700,000 extension of Lynn Road west of Reino Road. Councilwoman Elois Zeanah was the lone opponent. Lynn Road opponents said the extension would increase commuter traffic and endanger motorists and schoolchildren who use it.

Currently, there is a push to attract new business to the Conejo Valley to raise tax revenues for a massive new civic center. To attract new business now, during a serious national recession, the city of Thousand Oaks will obviously have to lower the planning standards that were once the trademark of this beautiful community. The approval of a 23,800-square-foot Circuit City store at the Lynn Road and Hillcrest Drive gateway (on open land that was once city property) marks this distinct change in city planning philosophy.

Two people in a stolen car were arrested Monday after one of them tried to run over a sheriff's deputy in a Thousand Oaks parking lot, authorities said. Ventura County Sheriff's Deputy Bill Irby was treated for minor injuries at Los Robles Regional Medical Center in Thousand Oaks after the 1 p.m. incident, said hospital spokeswoman Helen Mitchell. He was released from the hospital later in the day, she said. Irby had stopped the car in the parking lot of The Oaks mall and was speaking with the driver outside the vehicle when the passenger grabbed the wheel and backed into the deputy, Sheriff's Sgt. Will Howe said.

Dear Street Smart: I resent a traffic signal on Lynn Road in Thousand Oaks that is red more often than necessary. The signal is between Hillcrest Drive and the eastbound Ventura Freeway ramp. Its purpose seems to be to help cars turning south onto Lynn from the westbound Ventura Freeway. I don't mind stopping when there are cars actually making the turn, but more often than not, there are no cars turning, and I have to wait for no apparent reason.
