In Somis, lots are measured in acres, not square feet, and kids ride horses instead of skateboards. The unincorporated area of Ventura County has 3,155 residents -- who are easily outnumbered by farm animals. Beginnings Many of the families that helped found Somis in the late 1800s have streets named in their honor. History looms large here. Take the Fulkerson family, which established a blacksmithing business that eventually evolved into the hardware store that today carries its name.

An Amtrak train collided with a dump truck at a private railway crossing near Somis on Wednesday, not far from a similar crash earlier this month that injured nearly two dozen people. There were no major injuries in the 2 p.m. accident on tracks near Sand Canyon Road, about nine miles southwest of Moorpark, said California Highway Patrol Officer Brandon Mumme. Initial reports indicate that the dump truck drove onto the tracks in front of the westbound train, Mumme said. Pacific Surfliner No.

After 37 years in the classroom, it seems like Eric Johansson has taught nearly everyone in the tiny town of Somis. A history and geography teacher at Somis School, he has guided about 1,200 youngsters over a period spanning eight presidential administrations, witnessing firsthand the evolution from blackboards and ink wells to computers and Power Point presentations. Some families in this rural community north of Camarillo have sent three generations of students through his classroom.
