Former Congressman Robert Lagomarsino and his wife, Norma, have contributed $100,000 toward construction of Holy Cross Elementary School in Ventura. The San Buenaventura Mission is hoping to raise $7 million to replace the aging private elementary school, which was built in 1922 and does not meet building and earthquake codes. The mission is also building a 750-seat auditorium, expected to be completed soon. The school serves about 200 students, said Msgr. Patrick J.

The recently concluded Battle of the Bands at Ventura's Metro Retro Knight Club has been more or less resurrected as the Metro Music Awards, a competition among local bands that will end with a compilation CD. A pair of very good Ventura bands, JuJu Eyeball and Limehause, play next Wednesday. JuJu Eyeball, inspired by a line in the Beatles' "Come Together," is Frank Barajas' latest band.

DJ Divine is getting "Supersonic." He grabs the track by 1980s one-hit wonder J.J. Fad, snags another by K-Ci and JoJo and one by dance diva Jennifer Lopez. It's a rush: Play a song, grab a track or two, rush back to the mike to drop the next request. "This is Q104-7," DJ Divine says across the airwaves, unruffled by his last few hectic moments. "Your one spot for all the flava." Like DJ Divine, Q104-7-FM is a smooth mix of styles--the pumping beat and the slow, sweet ballad.

The proposed paths, which could include dedicated bus lanes, range from Topanga Canyon Boulevard in the west to Vineland Avenue in the east. One possible plan would run buses down the San Diego Freeway.

No one in the audience at Ventura's Metro Nite Club filed a complaint last September when enthusiastic female patrons and five muscular male dancers simulated various sex acts during the performance. But state regulators say they were there taking color photographs of dancers engaging 26 women in various forms of sexual contact on 66 occasions that evening. And the regulators say laws were broken that prohibit such activities in any place where alcohol is served.

A long-awaited report on San Fernando Valley rail-route options released Wednesday suggests that there would be enough riders to support the proposed east-west line, but that even a shortened version of the line would cost almost twice what transit planners will have available in the coming decade. The steeper-than-expected cost estimates--ranging from $500 million for a bare-bones surface system that would run only from North Hollywood to the Sepulveda Basin, to $3.

Despite protests from San Fernando Valley bus riders, the MTA board voted Thursday to curtail some express bus service to downtown and instead reroute riders to the new Universal City subway station. The changes, effective June 25, apply to West Valley express lines 424, 425 and 522. Those lines will terminate at the Universal City Red Line stop, where riders would connect with a downtown train.

A century ago, Charles and Frank Duryea of Springfield, Mass., sold the nation's first gasoline buggy to George Morill of nearby Norwood. Not one photographer caught the moment. Thursday--4,000 manufacturers and 1.8 billion American cars later--General Motors began leasing EV1 electric coupes at coffee-and-muffin showroom parties for carefully screened customers in Southern California and Arizona.
