The sightings are part of a remarkable statewide resurgence for the endangered fish. Five sleek, silvery smolt were intercepted on the Santa Clara River near Saticoy on Friday, and a dozen were nabbed in the same place earlier in the week.

Following the release of reports that two large housing developments would cause irreparable harm to southeast Ventura County's rural environment, three of five County Supervisors scheduled to vote on the projects early next year said they probably will not support them.

Re "Agriculture Chief Put on Probation," Feb. 26. Pesticides pose an enormous risk to communities located near agricultural settings. They poison the air we breathe and the water we drink. Our elected officials need to be continually vigilant to make sure they do all in their power to protect us from these serious health hazards. It is great to see that the Ventura County Board of Supervisors is beginning to do just that. Their long-overdue review of county agricultural commissioner Earl McPhail marks the perfect opportunity to appoint somebody to that post who puts the health of our communities first.
