The Japanese owners of Santa Paula's historic Glen Tavern Inn are refurbishing the dilapidated structure and plan to reopen it as a school for the study of Western culture, representatives said Monday. The decision to reopen the school came to light Monday, two months after Santa Paula officials nearly took the owners to court over safety violations that had prompted the city to cut off the building's utilities.

Mugu Rock, Ventura County's popular--and dangerous--coastal site for fishing, rock climbing and romance, will keep claiming victims as long as people are lured by its beauty and challenges, authorities say. "Short of completely fencing it off, as long as people continue to climb up Mugu Rock, people are going to continue to fall off Mugu Rock," said Craig Stevens, county deputy coroner. "You're certainly not going to move it."

Over the course of 88 years, the Ventura County Railway has hauled beets to sugar processing plants, Channel Islands cattle to the slaughterhouse, and 225,000 carloads of World War II munitions, supplies and troops bound for the Pacific Theater. Where the railway once carried July 4th celebrants from Oxnard to a 1905 beach party, today it runs freight along 13 miles of track that reaches from Southern Pacific's main line in Oxnard to the Port of Hueneme and the U. S.

Santa Paula's historic Glen Tavern Inn is for sale, after an attempt to convert the landmark hotel into a satellite college for Japanese students apparently fell victim to hard times. The Tokyo International College Center for Western Studies opened its doors in 1989 when Joseph Hoang of Tokyo purchased the 41-room hotel for $2.1 million. The building now lists for $1.5 million, said Anita Pulido of Coldwell Banker--Citrus Valley Realtors.

Three pre-World War II structures in Fillmore have been designated as historical landmarks by the Fillmore City Council, the final approval that sets aside the monuments as noteworthy. The Fillmore sign at the corner of California 126 and Central Avenue, which steers motorists to the central business district, joined the art and science buildings at Fillmore High School as Ventura County's newest landmarks.

The abandoned wood and metal barns nestled between the hills of Dos Vientos Ranch are one of the few visible remnants of this suburban city's dwindling rustic past. Once owned by horse lover Malcolm Clark, the designer of Snap-On tools, the 49-year-old buildings--designated Ventura County landmarks--may soon be destroyed to make way for the massive, 2,360-home subdivision that's set to forever transform this region of Newbury Park.

As Ventura County landmarks go, the Ojai Center for the Arts wears its mantle with great humility. Outsiders, accustomed mainly to cruising Ojai's main drag, or those not intricately involved in the arts in Ojai, may not even know the center exists. But there it has sat since 1939, a sleepy, rambling structure hunkered down on a sizable parcel of land between South Montgomery Street and the creek.
