Hoping to curb youth crime, Ventura County will use a $2.8-million state grant to open centers in Ventura, Oxnard and Simi Valley where juveniles on probation can be more tightly supervised and receive counseling and other services. The money will also pay for a second county prosecutor who can haul parents of habitual truants into court and for additional probation officers to control gang-plagued neighborhoods in Oxnard and Santa Paula. But with the stick comes a few carrots.

When state officials hand out arts money, government records show, Ventura County's arts groups get a below-average share. And when the county weighs such spending, arts leaders say, they fare even worse. State arts officials blame both shortfalls on Ventura County government leaders. Money, they say, may be tight, but most comparable counties have been able to find more than Ventura County supervisors have.

Only a few thought the recovery could stretch on so long. One year after the Northridge earthquake shook Ventura County, the region is still crawling slowly out of the wreckage. Some houses still are unrepaired. Some businesses are crippled. And some residents still suffer from rattled nerves. "I think after the original repairs everybody was so excited about getting things done, and some people got things done very quickly," said Simi Valley Mayor Greg Stratton.
