More than 1,000 Ventura County residents stepped back in time Sunday to a period when the country was at war with itself. The Stagecoach Inn Museum, 51 S. Ventu Park Road, hosted a reenactment of life in a Civil War camp, complete with muskets, cannons, tents and more than 40 soldiers in uniform. "It's really a living history presentation," said Ed Mann, a Thousand Oaks resident and member of the Richmond Howitzers, a group modeled after a famed Civil War artillery battery.

Filing into the one-room schoolhouse, the children slid into the well-worn, shiny, 150-year-old Welsh desks and curiously surveyed the pot-bellied stove, the portraits of George Washington and Abraham Lincoln above the blackboard and, finally, Miss Jones. As they shuffled their feet on the unfinished wooden floor, the teacher explained the ground rules of life in the classroom during the 1880s.

The next time you visit a museum in the county, take a moment to consider the volunteer staff. Chances are that they do a lot more than just direct guests to the nearest restroom. Most cultural institutions depend heavily on volunteers to keep their doors open. And, in turn, volunteers often receive training in a docent program to become lecturers and tour guides.

It will be a weekend frozen in time, a community portrait for future generations. Beginning at noon today, 75 photographers will fan out through Thousand Oaks to chronicle everyday life in 1989 for the city's 25th anniversary. The cameras will record residents, architecture and freeways. They will capture a high school football game, a wedding and a play. Some of the community's oldest and youngest members will be photographed.

"I cannot understand people who have nothing to do," said Maury Kingman, a 72-year-old retired electronics engineer. "I already have no time to read anything but my serious magazines like Smithsonian and Strad, a violin-making magazine. I want to write a book. There are other languages I want to learn. And I want to sculpt in marble and clay. "Believe me, retirement is not just sitting around. We're so busy, we wonder where we ever found eight hours to go to work."
