A plan unveiled Tuesday to split the sprawling 805 area code proposes dividing the region either on a north-south or east-west axis, but would keep Ventura County largely intact. One option would put most of Ventura County into the same area code as northern Los Angeles County. The other would lump the coastal counties--Ventura, Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo--in a single region.

A public meeting to discuss the first split in the sprawling 805 area code since it was established 40 years ago is scheduled Thursday in Camarillo. The California-Nevada Code Administration, an industry group that administers area code distribution, proposes splitting the area code on either a north-south or east-west basis. Under the east-west option, Ventura, Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties would share the same area code, a plan favored by local officials.

GTE California plans to install fiber optic cables in a new section of Newbury Park that could one day give residents the ability to access a wide range of services by simply pushing the buttons on their TV remote controls. The new communication lines, to be installed in August, will initially serve 17 new residences in the Shappell development near Lawrence Drive and Camino Dos Rios, spokesman Mike Murray said.

GTE California, based in Thousand Oaks, is considering extending its $80-million "information superhighway" telecommunications network to Ventura County in 1994. But even if the expansion materializes, GTE doesn't expect it to result in increased hiring in the county. Ventura County, GTE California's home base, was left out of the first phase of SONET, or Synchronous Optical Network, which the company unveiled last week.

An Oak View woman who gave birth at her family's home Monday became the first in Ventura County to be coached through delivery by a 911 dispatcher. Help arrived about 30 seconds after Cindy White, 19, gave birth to a 6-pound, 15-ounce daughter, Taylor Nicole. Paramedics cut and tied the umbilical cord and took mother and daughter to Ojai Valley Community Hospital where they were pronounced in good health, a hospital spokeswoman said.
