Ventura, CA - The Ventura County Transportation Commission (VCTC) has made slight adjustments to VISTA service’s schedule, effective Monday, October 1. These adjustments include minor time modifications to the Highway 101 and Conejo Connection routes, the East County route, and the CSUCI routes, as well as additional service along Highway 126.

“With the recent transition to Roadrunner Shuttle, the ability to maintain service without interruption and with only these minor changes is a definite home run,” said VCTC Executive Director Darren Kettle. “Our effort remains focused on providing efficient and effective service to the people of Ventura County.”

Additional changes are expected for the Coastal Express later this month. Service changes traditionally go into effect during the summer, but the adjustments were pushed back due to the recent transition to Camarillo-based Roadrunner.

“The majority of the schedules will only be adjusted by a few minutes, so people needn’t worry about restructuring their entire commute,” noted VCTC Transit Director Vic Kamhi.

Updated schedules can be found at goventura.org.

Ventura County, CA - With the flu season fast approaching, Dr. Robert Levin, Health Officer for Ventura County Public Health (VCPH), is urging all Ventura County residents to get vaccinated against the flu.

“The flu has the potential to cause serious illness and even death,” said Levin. “Becoming vaccinated is the best way to protect yourself and your family from the flu and its complications.”

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), influenza and related complications are the eighth leading cause of death in the United States. Influenza is associated with up to 49,000 deaths and over 200,000 hospitalizations in the U.S. each year.

CDC recommends an annual flu vaccine for everyone six months of age and older, including pregnant women. Healthy people between two and 49 years of age, who are not pregnant, may opt for the nasal spray flu vaccine instead of the shot.

In October and November, VCPH Immunization Program will co-sponsor over 90 low cost/no cost influenza vaccine clinics at various locations throughout Ventura County. No appointment is necessary and the flu shots will be given on a first come, first serve basis. For a list of seasonal flu clinics, go to www.vchca.org/flu.

The 2012 – 2013 flu vaccine protects against influenza A (H1N1) virus, influenza A (H3N2) virus and influenza B virus. This year’s flu vaccine contains two different strains that were not part of the 2011–12 flu vaccine.

To stop the spread of flu and other respiratory illnesses, everyone should:

· Stay home when sick

· Cover a cough or sneeze by using their elbow or a tissue and then properly dispose of the used tissue.

· Wash hands thoroughly with soap and warm water or an alcohol-based hand sanitizer, avoiding contact with eyes, nose and mouth.

FARM WATCH: August - September 2012 Edition

WELCOME FARM WATCH READERS!

I can't believe it is the Fall season already and we are still experiencing "summer " heat for our county. We have very dry conditions, so needless to say we all need to be diligent in reporting suspicious activity on and around our agricultural properties to safe guard against arsonists. Please DO NOT hesitate to call 911 when you suspect person(s) that do not have the legal authority to be on your property . This is the case for those that might be casing the ranches for potential metal thefts or they could be possible arsonists.

On the crime front, Det. Ray Dominguez has been quite busy all around the county, but is pleased with the readers of Farm Watch reporting crimes in an expedient manner. I continue to receive calls from folks that want to be added to this report. SO the bottom line: we depend on all of you to report suspicious activity immediately so we can deliver more effective policing to solve crimes, or at least deter crime in the future !
