After four consecutive quarters of decreases, office vacancy rates worsened in west Ventura County in the second quarter, according to a survey by CB Commercial Real Estate Group. The upturn was caused largely by continued defense cutbacks and stagnant growth in service-related businesses, said Tim Grant of CB's Ventura office. Grant said the office vacancy rate in Ventura, Oxnard and Camarillo rose to 25.2% in the second quarter. This compared with 23.9% in this year's first quarter and 25.

A telephone company office in Canoga Park got a scare Monday morning when a popping noise went off and a puff of smoke went up as an employee emptied a night depository box filled with customers' bills. The scare ended when a police bomb squad determined that the noise was made by a tiny "snap-pop" fireworks device that apparently was set off by friction as bills were moved, said Charlene Baldwin, spokeswoman for Pacific Bell.

The Internal Revenue Service, seeking to get a better grip on the home-office deduction, has issued a new tax form that home workers will have to file with 1991 returns. Form 8829 comes at a time when an increasing number of people are working from their homes, either by choice or because they have lost their jobs and are setting up consulting businesses and the like. The IRS estimated that about 4 million taxpayers will file the form for 1991.

The burgeoning entertainment industry is transforming this community, once known mostly as the home of Forest Lawn, into one of the hottest office markets in Southern California. With studios and other media-related firms flocking to town, the demand for office space has soared. The trend, which began in 1991, was in evidence again on Monday with the news that Walt Disney Co. plans to lease seven floors in a Glendale office building for corporate administrative operations.

The Police Department is hoping to make shopping this season a little more safe and worry-free. In an effort to reduce theft during the pre-Christmas shopping chaos, the department has opened a storefront office in the Tustin Market Place. Police and local store owners say they are pleased with the results. "We know there's a greater tendency for auto burglary and for people leaving their Christmas presents exposed in the back seat of their vehicles," Officer Houston Williams said.

There was plenty of holiday spirit at Gina Munoz's office Christmas party Friday. The only things missing were the holiday spirits. Instead of the customary eggnog spiked with brandy, workers toasted Christmas and Hanukkah with orange juice and coffee at the Arco Plaza investment company where Munoz works. Similar scenes were repeated across the city as workers reached for cups of soft drinks instead of the champagne and liquor that has traditionally flowed at Christmas parties.

Vaughn King of Fullerton had scarcely hooked up his new fax machine before he was organizing trade shows from his home. "After being unable to reach an individual on the phone for two weeks, I faxed her a proposal for three shows and received a call the same day. We wrapped up the agreement that afternoon," he says. David Ellis of Simi Valley uses a personal computer to look up policies, write proposals and send out mailings at his home-based insurance and financial services business.
