It was a special day for Ramona Rodriguez and her five children. As she nibbled on a freshly baked pumpkin pie and her children enjoyed second and third servings of turkey with stuffing, she glanced with gratitude at the folks who run the Ventura County Rescue Mission. "I'm so happy," said Rodriguez, who was also celebrating her 33rd birthday. "We don't have money to pay for the gas in our mobile home, so I have been cooking with firewood. My stomach has been upset for weeks.

I want to inform your readers about what actually took place regarding a request to use Clinicas del Camino Real Inc. property for a temporary tent for the homeless. My initial conversation with Carol Roberg, executive director of the Ventura County Rescue Mission, was one of concern and compassion for her agency and the people it serves. I expressed to her my will to be of help but that I was under a time deadline and legal responsibility to begin construction on land that is designated to serve as a parking lot. This is not a self-imposed obligation but rather a condition of the construction and use permit that we obtained by the city of Oxnard.
