What's more, he boasts of single-handedly persuading Circuit City to build the outlet in Thousand Oaks.

Intent on honoring--or good-naturedly dishonoring--Thousand Oaks' longest-serving politician, friends of outgoing Mayor Alex Fiore have scheduled a retirement roast for Nov. 30. Fiore will step down from his council post next month, after serving three full decades. Already, the mayor has received a shower of accolades, including a rundown of his accomplishments during the "Fiore Moment" at weekly council meetings. But to some of his biggest fans, the Fiore Moment isn't enough.

For many, running a successful home-based business can be a dream--no boss, no commute, no dress code. But the dream can quickly turn into a nightmare for those unaware of strategies for success, rules and regulations. To address these issues, the Conejo Valley Chamber of Commerce has formed a new committee for home-based businesses.

In the last six months, staff members at the Conejo Valley Chamber of Commerce spent 56 hours preparing information about Thousand Oaks apartment vacancies. They also took 27 hours to discuss the city's hotels with potential visitors. And they devoted 25 hours to helping senior citizens find services. For all that work, they expect to be paid. By Thousand Oaks taxpayers. Most of the chamber's $1-million annual budget comes from membership dues.

Thousand Oaks council members this week aired their oratorical skills in grand fashion: They spent half an hour debating about a debate. They were supposed to be discussing whether to grant $1,000 to subsidize a televised election forum featuring all 16 council candidates. And in the end, they unanimously approved the contribution. But first, they argued sharply about whether the debate--sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce and the League of Women Voters--would be truly nonpartisan.

The Conejo Valley Chamber of Commerce is accepting donations of canned and packaged food for the needy, which it will deliver next week to the Manna Conejo Valley Food Bank in time for the Thanksgiving holiday. "In the past, we've collected gifts for the holidays for the Girl Scouts," said Steve Rubenstein, the chamber's executive director. "But because the economy is so difficult this year, we're doing this too."
