The Ventura County Economic Development Assn. is organizing the lobbying effort to assure Cal State officials of the county's enthusiasm for becoming the home of a four-year public university, association spokesman Stan Whisenhunt said.

In the same warehouse where it had helped tune the nation's military engine, the Oxnard aerospace firm began building electric buses. While a neighboring defense contractor shut its doors, APS was busy designing the first battery-powered school bus in the country.
