The family of a 44-year-old man who died while under the influence of cocaine and in the custody of sheriff's deputies has filed a claim against the county, saying deputies contributed to his death by "hogtying" him in the back of a patrol car. Deputies contributed substantially to the death of William Orrante of Saticoy by placing him face-down with his arms and legs restrained behind his back, according to the claim, which seeks $2 million in damages.

The Ventura County Sheriff's Department has shut down the Saticoy Resource Center to help close the department's possible $10-million budget gap. Volunteers staffed the center on Los Angeles Avenue, which hosted parenting classes, after-school tutoring and Lions Club meetings. Its closure would save the sheriff's office $37,000, said department spokeswoman Sgt. Renee Ferguson. "We're just trying to meet our budget. Any cut is painful," she said.

After listening to disgruntled veterans voice their displeasure Monday with plans to build a smaller nursing home in Saticoy than proposed, members of a state board toured the 22-acre site.
