Santa Rosa Road

I am writing in response to a letter written by Daniel Nauman ["Dangerous Jogging Roads," Dec. 16]. How dare Nauman attack [Paul] Bonds for jogging with his daughter on Santa Rosa Road. I have lived for many years just miles from the tragic accident scene, and my heart feels for Mr. Bonds. We are a quiet community composed of many active people, in particular people who stable horses in their backyards. A system of trails runs throughout our community and like that unfortunate girl and her father, we sometimes must cross Santa Rosa Road.

Heeding the pleas of an anguished father and dozens of residents, the Ventura County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday rejected a project that would have allowed traffic to flow freely on a rural road between Moorpark and Camarillo. The action comes a week after 14-year-old Jennifer Bonds was struck by a car and killed while jogging along Santa Rosa Road.

Any sense of mourning over the accidental death of Jennifer Lynn Bonds is mired by her father's utter lack of acknowledging his responsibility in regularly jogging with his daughter along a road that basically is an alternative to the Ventura Freeway, and the writer's inclusion of Mr. Bonds' irrelevant observations about the traffic patterns on Santa Rosa Road. Mr. Bonds, I am saddened by your loss, but there are well-documented reasons for not jogging along busy roads: drunk drivers, elevated amounts of pollution and the unfortunate, but likely, chance of losing your balance and veering into traffic.

A 14-year-old member of the Camarillo High School cross-country team died early Wednesday after being struck by a car while jogging along Santa Rosa Road with her father, who called for an immediate reduction of traffic speeds in the area. Jennifer Lynn Bonds, a freshman member of the varsity team, was pronounced dead at Los Robles Regional Medical Center in Thousand Oaks from massive head injuries. She had been struck about 4:30 p.m. Tuesday by a 1986 Ford Thunderbird as she jogged just ahead of her father along a westbound stretch of Santa Rosa Road west of Yucca Road between Camarillo and Moorpark.

Open response to letter from Megan Green published Oct. 12: Dear Megan, Since I started working on the recall of Elois Zeanah almost one year ago, I have only responded to one letter to the editor, but I wanted to respond to yours because you are only a couple of years younger than most of my employees and I think it's particularly important for young people to understand why this recall is so important. This recall is about the truth. I moved to Thousand Oaks about 15 years ago, about the same year you were born.

Trucks cannot be ignored. Squelching the thought of getting side-swiped, center-punched or rear-ended by a rolling dreadnought the size of a Ventura beach cottage while on the road is like playing the old mind game, "Try not to think of an elephant." That pale green trash truck that entirely fills your rear-view mirror on California 126 every Wednesday morning? Pay it no mind.

Dear Street Smart: We live in Leisure Village, and Santa Rosa Road runs right behind our home. When we moved into the village some 12 years ago, we were aware of the fact that Santa Rosa Road was near our backyard, and we expected some noise. But the stretch from Oak Creek Road beyond Upland Road is now a speedway--not only for normal traffic, but for many heavy trucks.
