A candidate for Moorpark mayor claimed Monday that the city's most frequently used park will be closed for four months so that tougher turf can be planted, but city officials said no decision has been made. Tom Wheeler, a former city parks and recreation commissioner, held a press conference at Peach Hill Park, where lighted diamonds allow adult softball teams to play at night and where youth soccer teams practice in the afternoon. He said replanting the park's turf will cost $30,000 to $35,000.

The chairman of the Federal Communications Commission said a deal has been reached between the agency and mobile carriers that will make smartphone unlocking legal. FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler said the agreement will ensure customers are allowed to unlock their devices as well as receive information from their carriers on how and when they can do so.

Amid debate over safety, air rage and courtesy in the air, the Federal Communications Commission approved the first step in allowing passengers on airplanes to use cellphones in flight. The “notice of rule making” approved by a 3-2 vote Thursday means the FCC will now take comments from the public and experts before returning at a later date for a vote on lifting the agency's ban on cellphone use in the air. FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler, who supported lifting the ban, made it clear that the FCC's decision does not require airlines to allow cellphone calls, even if the agency's ban is lifted.
