The contentious English gamecock is giving Ronna Jurow a problem. Actually, it would like to take her eyes out, which it almost did once. "Oh, come here now," coos Jurow, her hands and forearms covered in protective leather, reeling in the leashed dervish as it splays and flaps and screeches and kicks up dust clouds with its scratching spinning feet. "There." She snatches him up from the ground.

There will be no rooster rousters, no chicken confiscations, nothing for bird breeders to crow about any longer. The county's proposed rooster ordinance has officially flown the coop. "Obviously, we haven't found middle ground yet, and it may never crow again," Ventura County Supervisor Kathy Long said Tuesday, after the panel tabled months of work to craft an ordinance that would curtail cockfighting and excessive farm noise by limiting the number of roosters.

Many women are frightened by conflicting reports about the safety of hormone therapy -- so much so that some are simply throwing away their pills. Doctors across Ventura County say they see it every day. "I can't tell you how many messages have come across my desk: 'I stopped taking my estrogen -- just wanted you to know,' " said Ventura cardiologist Thomas Kong. To address the confusion, Community Memorial Hospital will hold a women's health symposium at 1 p.m.

Dozens of critics of a proposed county jail told the Ventura County Board of Supervisors Wednesday that a study of the new lockup is seriously flawed and that it should not be built on prime farmland near Santa Paula. Just one of 41 speakers at a four-hour hearing supported the county's plan to construct the $54-million first phase of the jail, and the supporter represented a deputy sheriff's union whose members would work at the facility.

Chelsey Miller admitted that she wasn't really looking forward to Thursday, when a friend of her father offered to take her to the Port Hueneme division of the Naval Surface Warfare Center as part of national Take Our Daughters to Work Day. "I thought it would be boring, but it was fun," said Chelsey, 9, who shadowed engineer Karen Kjos for the day. "I thought Karen would just be working all day and I'd have nothing to do."

The Ventura County Board of Supervisors voted 4 to 1 Tuesday to spend $51.3 million to build a 752-bed jail on farmland midway between Santa Paula and Ventura. The sole dissenting vote came from Supervisor John Flynn, who repeatedly said the plan to build the jail at Todd Road and the Santa Paula Freeway is too expensive. Flynn insisted that the county could make room for 750 more inmates by spending $29.4 million to build additions to the Ventura County Jail and to the work farms.

A small landfill in a canyon east of Santa Paula should be expanded to accept more than 10 times the trash now dumped there each day, regional trash officials said Tuesday. An expanded Toland Road Landfill would serve as a backstop in case a proposal to build a new dump at Weldon Canyon north of Ventura is rejected or delayed, officials of the Ventura Regional Sanitation District said.

President Clinton's plan to provide health care to all Americans was praised Wednesday by Ventura County medical workers as a necessary first step in health-care reform, but local employers worried that they will have to pay the plan's enormous costs. The plan would provide health-care access to 37 million Americans not now insured and would attempt to control runaway costs. "I'm saying it's about time," said Samuel Edwards, medical director at Ventura County Medical Center.

Caesar Julian Family doctor, HMO pioneer Simi Valley Julian, 68, founded one of Ventura County's first HMOs in the 1970s, then folded it in the early 1980s. "It didn't take long to see that it's almost a pyramid scheme. You bring them in under the guise of doing all these wonderful things, but ultimately the bubble will burst because you can't give all the things you promised for the price you quote. It has to tumble. There's no such thing as cut-rate high-quality care. "Now, I won't take HMOs.
