Dan Geraldo and his 5-year-old son, Joshua, stepped back to study their frosty creation: three lumpy snowballs piled on top of each other, with scrawny twigs stuck in either side, and an inside-out knit cap haphazardly placed on top. They tried to name it but something was missing. So with the help of some berries and small sticks from a nearby bush, they gave it a face. And then they gave it a name. Happy, the snowman.

Toting a blue plastic bag that was bigger than her, 6-year-old Wynsum Kearns knew exactly why she was picking up garbage at wind-whipped San Buenaventura Beach Park on Saturday morning. "I want to save the world," she said as she shuffled through blowing sand, scooping up paper, bottle caps and other trash either dumped by someone else or tossed ashore by the pounding surf. "I can help keep our environment clean and help the animals on land and sea."

A weak Pacific front that dropped about half an inch of rain on Ventura County early Saturday didn't dampen the spirits of participants in a community run that raised money for heart disease research and education. The fast-moving storm soaked the county between 2 and 8 a.m., tapering off just as hundreds of runners pulled on knit caps, laced up sneakers and hit the pavement.

Subfreezing temperatures driven by an Arctic front devastated more than $100 million in crops and threaten to wreak more economic destruction, a Ventura County agricultural official said Monday. Deputy Agricultural Commissioner Jim Fullmer said preliminary economic assessments from the weekend chill indicate that at least a seventh of the county's $806 million agricultural industry was damaged. It was twice as bad as a December, 1987, frost, when $51.4 million in crops were lost, Fullmer said.

An Alaska storm front pounded Ventura County with more than five inches of rain in some areas Monday, triggering rockslides and mudslides and bringing seasonal rainfall to near normal for the first time in five years. The heavy rain, which authorities said was a factor in 60 minor traffic accidents in the county Monday, was expected to continue this morning, with the National Weather Service predicting that another two to three inches will fall before the storm abates about midday.
