As one of the safest cities in the United States, Thousand Oaks has very few mean streets. But it does have one mean intersection. There was an accident about every two weeks at Hillcrest Drive and Moorpark Road in 1998, giving Thousand Oaks the dubious distinction of having the most dangerous intersection of any city in the county that year. But Oxnard, owner of 10 of the county's top 15 most dangerous intersections, claimed the next five spots.

I drive a car that is more than 30 years old and my blinkers work. As I drive the highways and streets of Ventura County, everywhere I look I see people who have been swindled out of their hard-earned cash. I find myself driving behind some impressive cars that give the impression of status and luxury and have to remark to myself that it is such a shame that the owner has spent money on a car without working turn signals. New, used, even cars as old as mine suffer from the same problem.

Standing in front of a mangled car, Assemblyman Jack O'Connell and California Highway Patrol officials sought Monday to reinforce the perilous image of drunk driving and outline stiffer legal penalties that take effect Jan. 1. "The message is, 'If you choose to drink and drive, you will pay, and you will pay dearly,' " said O'Connell, a Carpinteria Democrat. The Legislature has passed laws increasing the fines and jail sentences for drunk driving.

Law enforcement authorities said Wednesday that 17 reputed gang members were charged in connection with a narcotics trafficking operation that sold drugs from Mexico on the streets of Ventura County. Methamphetamine and heroin were supplied by an organization in Mexico that was directed by a member of the Mexican Mafia, a California prison gang that exerts control over a number of Latino street gangs, according to authorities. Six of the suspects were taken into custody Wednesday by a multi-agency task force, the FBI said.

Census workers have hit the streets of Ventura County to begin visiting 61,600 households that have not returned census questionnaires delivered in March. Seventy-three percent of the 228,219 questionnaires sent to Ventura County residents have been returned to the Census Bureau. It is the highest return rate in the state, said Rico Cabrera, media specialist at the Los Angeles Regional Census Center. Census workers will work statewide through May.

Capping a five-year search for land to build a state university in Ventura County, a committee of Cal State trustees meeting in Long Beach on Tuesday chose a lemon grove between Camarillo and Oxnard as the future home of the system's 21st campus. The site, which was approved over the objections of one trustee, must be ratified by California State University's full Board of Trustees, scheduled to meet today, but that vote is expected to be largely a formality.

Sheriff's officials banned them from the streets of Ventura County, but after a four-year absence they are resurfacing to the delight of many deputies. They are the traditional black-and-white patrol cars once driven by Ventura County sheriff's deputies. The old black-and-whites were phased out by the department in 1994 after officials decided to save the $400-per-vehicle cost to alter the cars' original all-white paint jobs.
