Joann Mecka came back to the Ventura Beach RV Resort on Thursday morning, hoping to salvage what was left inside the small trailer she shared with her husband and two friends. But everything was covered in a sea of mud that swept down the Ventura River and through the park Wednesday. And with no insurance, Mecka said she has no idea how she will get enough money to start over. "We just don't know where to turn right now," said Mecka, with tears in her eyes.

The corporation that owns the Ventura Beach RV Resort did not violate terms of its probation or any city ordinance when employees stacked mounds of river silt in front of Emma Wood State Beach, a judge ruled Tuesday. The ruling means resort owner Tom Staben will not be criminally charged nor will his corporation, Ventura Beach RV Resort Inc., face $5,000 in fines and extension of its probation, attorneys said. "This guy did nothing wrong," Ventura defense attorney Alex Gutierrez said.

Todd Collart, Deputy mayor, Ventura I have not made a decision, nor has the council, on the future of the park. We have asked the city staff to give us a full report on the matter, so we know exactly what options the city has regarding future dealings with the RV park. We need to see copies of the present permit conditions, whether or not they've been adhered to, and what it would take to amend the conditions, or to close the park down. There should be a discussion of flood plains, flood channels and 100-year storms.

Some scenes from Southern California's stormy siege. "I fell in the wash. Please help me!" --Adam Paul Bischoff, 15, of Woodland Hills yelling to a passerby shortly before the 35-m.p.h. currents of the Los Angeles River swept him to his death. "If that kid could have held on another half mile I think we could have gotten him." --Assistant Fire Chief Tony Ennis, on the attempt to rescue Bischoff. "This makes a person sick."

Last year SB 1984, which authorized counties and cities to impose a Transient Occupancy Tax or bed tax on privately operated campgrounds and RV parks, was passed by the Legislature and signed by the governor. The privately operated campground and RV park industry is unique in that our major sources of competition come from county parks, state parks, federal parks and even fairgrounds. Every one of these competitors is exempted from collecting this tax from their customers. "Why?"

The Ventura City Council will decide Monday whether a special hearing should be set to decide how long people should be allowed to stay at the Ventura Beach RV Resort, where floods from heavy rains damaged about 40 recreational vehicles in February. City officials and park owner Nancy Hubbard disagree on the terms of the permit. City officials say the permit does not allow anyone to stay at the park past 30 days.

The League of Women Voters of Ventura County believes the Feb. 12 flooding of the Ventura Beach RV Resort, near the mouth of the Ventura River, has created the need to take another look at the park and its conditional-use permit. When the RV park was proposed in 1985, the league had the following concerns: A number of permanent buildings would be built in the park, which is in a flood plain, and long-term residents may be encouraged. There would be no way to mitigate degradation of the sensitive habitat along the Ventura River and the estuary at its mouth.

The California Coastal Commission on Wednesday decided to limit long-term stays at the Ventura Beach RV Resort because it sits at the mouth of the Ventura River, which is in a flood plain. The state regulatory agency overruled a decision by the Ventura City Council last year to allow campers to stay up to nine months a year. The commission voted to restrict campers to a total of 90 days a year. Campers must leave every 30 days and are not allowed to return to the park for a minimum of 48 hours.

County health officials shut down three food outlets for code violations last month, including two that were flooded out by torrential rainstorms. A Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant in Oxnard was ordered to close down Feb. 7 because of sewage backups in the kitchen area, said Elizabeth Huff, supervisor for restaurant inspections. A health inspector allowed the restaurant in the 100 block of West Gonzales Road to reopen two days later after cleanup, she said.
