For a place filled with folks I'd never met before, the Oak View Community Center was full of old friends. Oh, the people were cordial enough--I had no sooner walked through the door with guitar in hand than I was intercepted by a woman with a big smile. "I could use another guitarist and I'm up in about 15 minutes," said Jan Bowman, nodding toward an array of microphones and speakers where a five-piece string band was performing a gospel-flavored bluegrass tune before a toe-tapping crowd.

Gone is the special parking space. The boxes are packed at one of the choicest pieces of residential real estate in Ventura County. The spacious office just a few blocks away belongs to someone else. Capt. Stephen Beal, the former commander of Point Mugu Naval Air Weapons Station, is now just Steve. After 26 years in the Navy, Beal has decided that it's time to retire, but is still wondering what the future holds. "My wife and I are at the stage in which we're asking, 'Where to next?'

As a child I needed something to cling to as much as the next guy, but I couldn't grasp the power of the security blanket. I understood the power of the stuffed frog and the corduroy clown, but the blanket didn't do it for me. My brother was different. He would drag his security blanket from room to room, day after day, rubbing the yellowing material between his right thumb and forefinger in that meditative way children have.

Ventura County Life Doug Adrianson sits in with some old-time fiddlers and discovers the music is as fresh as ever. Workplace Violence Some county businesses are resorting to extensive background checks and psychological tests to keep workplaces free of violence. Editorial Education at all levels in Ventura County has never been more available, or more important. Perspective Managed, sustained growth is necessary if our children are to be able to buy homes where they grew up, writes Jon Haines.

Picture a room that starts the workday at top speed, packed full by 8:30 a.m. with cops, lawyers, clerks, criminal suspects and a judge. Picture a room where that judge must hear up to 190 defendants each day, and decide their fate (jail, bail, hearing, trial, probation, work-release, work-furlough, drug counseling, drunk-driving school, restitution, prison, freedom) in a matter of minutes without making an error that will come back to haunt him on appeal.

Picture this: You've got one little girl who's nearly 2, never wants to slow down and shrieks if you tell her no. You've got a second who is not yet 4 but could teach college-level classes in stubbornness and manipulation. And you're sitting in the Hall of Justice in Ventura, praying that you get called soon for your adoption hearing, before the kids--and you--crumble into hysteria. That was the scene earlier this month as I went through the formal adoption process for Mariah, the 22-month-old.

Such a pretentious piece by Josef Woodard in Ventura County Life for Oct. 13, on the architecture of the Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza. Most American prisons have more outward appeal. But, of course, the Thousand Oaks City Council could have gotten a prefab design for $29.95. You have to spend the real dough to create an abortion. GILBERT S. BAHN Moorpark
