After last winter's debate among officials about who should shelter the homeless in cold weather, three Ventura County cities have joined forces to open a shelter beginning Dec. 1. The agreement came after recent state legislation allowed National Guard armories to be used as emergency shelters. The state will provide $395 a night--a total of $48,190--to keep the Oxnard National Guard Armory open for 122 days through March 31.

A much-needed shelter for battered children in Ventura County can still be built despite Gov. George Deukmejian's recent veto of $2 million in state aid for the project, say advocates, who describe themselves as disappointed but undaunted. "It is a setback but it is not going to deter us," said Pamela Burke, executive director of Youth Connection, the private, nonprofit group spearheading the effort.

Ventura County's last shelter for earthquake victims will close late today or Monday because of the small number of people who remain homeless. American Red Cross officials said the 49 Fillmore residents still without shelter are expected to be placed in homes today. If any families still need housing, it will be cheaper to house them at a motel, officials said. "We will make sure none of these people are left out in the cold," said Meg Cochran, a Red Cross spokeswoman.

A cold front packing winds as high as 40 m.p.h. knocked down tree limbs and power lines across Ventura County on Wednesday, leaving thousands of residents temporarily without power as homeless people huddled in area shelters to avoid one of the coldest nights of the year. Meteorologists said a change in wind patterns forced frigid arctic air to dip into Southern California, plunging temperatures to levels that could damage the county's delicate citrus and avocado crops.

At the Radnotis' house in Thousand Oaks, the Thanksgiving table will be laden with the usual goodies, but the garage will be stuffed with the old shoes of strangers. It's an incongruity that makes perfect sense if you are 17-year-old Kristina Radnoti and you have founded a group that give shoes to the homeless. So far, her drive -- Sole Purpose -- has delivered nearly 1,100 pairs of used athletic footgear to shelters in Ventura County and Los Angeles.
