Not all counties operate their own public hospital system. In fact, critics of the Ventura County Medical Center often say that it should follow Santa Barbara County's example and contract out for health-care services. For years, the neighboring county ran two public hospitals, one in the city of Santa Barbara and the other in Santa Maria.

Business leaders across Ventura County are gearing up to challenge a minimum-wage ordinance that supervisors appear poised to pass at Tuesday's meeting. More than a dozen chamber of commerce members from such areas as Ventura, Oxnard and Simi Valley said they plan to voice opposition to the so-called living wage ordinance that would require companies contracting with the county government to pay employees at least $8 an hour with health benefits, or $10 an hour without benefits.

Most new employees are given some time to acclimate, to learn the ropes. Deborah Linehan will have two days. On her third day as general manager of west Ventura County's bus service, Linehan is scheduled to make a recommendation that boils down to this: Should SCAT dump Laidlaw Transit after months of complaints from riders? It will be a fast start for Linehan, 44, who will take over today as administrative leader of South Coast Area Transit, which provides 3.7 million bus rides a year.

The garbage man had a decision to make. Heads? Or tails? Heads, said Don Goodrow, who owns Hillside Rubbish of Agoura Hills. And with that, he won a Ventura County contract to serve a new housing development in Oak Park for the next three months. "I never thought it would come to that," Goodrow said. It is not every day that the Board of Supervisors flips a coin to determine who wins a contract.

Hoping to get better service at a lower cost locally, the city of Simi Valley will stick with Ventura County for its animal regulation needs. In an about-face, the Simi Valley City Council voted unanimously Monday night to drop contract negotiations with Los Angeles County's Department of Animal Care and Control. It had turned to Los Angeles County earlier this summer, expecting to save thousands of dollars from Ventura County's $265,000 annual price tag. But the savings never materialized.
