Ventura County Treasurer-Tax Collector Steven Hintz announced that the Secured Property Tax Bills for the 2011/12 tax year will be mailed by October 15, 2011. Property owners who have not received the Fiscal Year 2011/12 secured property tax statement by the end of October should either telephone the office at (805) 654-3744, or send an Email request for a duplicate bill to HelpingHand@ventura.org. A “virtual bill” for each Ventura County taxable parcel is available online through the Tax Collector’s website: www.venturapropertytax.org

Hintz further reported that the 2011/12 tax statement information is currently loaded into his office’s systems and taxpayers can begin to inquire about their 2011/12 bills, as well as make their payments. Payments can be made by U.S. Mail, by visiting the Tax Collector’s Office, or via the Internet from the Tax Collector’s website: www.venturapropertytax.org. A total of 246,604 Secured Property Tax Bills will be issued for 2011/12, representing a total secured tax roll of more than $1.179 billion.

The FIRST INSTALLMENT of the 2011/12 secured property tax is due November 1, 2011, and can be paid without penalty as late as December 12, 2011. Office hours are 8:00 a.m. to 4:45 p.m., Monday through Friday. A payment drop box near the East entrance of the Hall of Administration at the Victoria Avenue County Government Center in Ventura will be available until MIDNIGHT on December 12, 2011.

Mailing a check with the payment stub remains an efficient way to pay your taxes. Payments postmarked on or before December 12, 2011 will be considered on time. The timeliness of mailed payments is measured by the U.S. Postal Service cancellation mark. The closure of the Oxnard Postal Annex may impact the timely postmark of your payment. Please take this into consideration when mailing your payment. If you must wait until December 12, 2011, it is recommended that you take your payment into the Post Office and have it postmarked in your presence. State law requires that a 10% penalty be collected for all late payments.

Kids love Halloween! They get to dress up and get free candy! What a perfect holiday! Give your kids some precious Halloween memories that they'll have for life.

Some of you kids already know things that you can do to be safe, like how to cross the street, not to talk to or go with strangers, and things like that. But we adults know how exciting Halloween can be and that can make you forget to be careful.

Here are some tips that we have just for you kids, to help keep you safe on Halloween night! Some of these ideas are called "common sense" ideas; that means that they are things that you should know and use every day in life. You are never too young to learn!

Never, ever go into a strangers’ house or even ring their door for treats unless your parents are with you and say that it's okay. There are some people in life that aren't very nice to kids and you have to be careful. Always make sure that your mom or dad is within sight when you go out trick-or-treating.

Be careful when you cross a street. Make sure to look in both directions and make sure that there are no cars coming. If you have a little brother or sister with you, take their hand and help them get across the street, too. If the street has a stop light, wait until the crosswalk light tells you that it's okay to cross, but still check before you cross, looking both ways.

If you are an older kid or young teen, and going out with friends, make sure that your parents know where you are going and who you are going with. This may seem like a pain but they are your parents and they love you. They just want you to be safe.

If you parents give you a curfew, be home when they say. It builds trust between you and them and they are doing it for your own safety. If you are going to be late, call them and let them know.

Have fun on Halloween but keep it safe, have some good, clean fun and your parents will trust you for many Halloweens to come! Showing them how responsible you can be will give you a feeling of pride and make them see just how adult you really are.

The Workforce Investment Board of Ventura County (WIB) knows that not all employment news is gloomy. A bright spot is the work being done by the WIB-supported employment professionals at Ventura County Job & Career Centers (JCCs) including the center in Santa Paula. Two recent success stories highlight the efforts of the JCC staff to match job seekers with local employers--all at no cost to either party.

West Oxnard Job & Career Center staff helped to find employees for Granada Corporation, which outsources customer support for companies serving the Hispanic market. Granada's human resources manager, Luly Flores, was looking for bilingual individuals who could serve as customer service representatives for an insurance company. Granada had identified several cities in the U.S. where it felt there was a strong employee pool. Oxnard was one of them.

Flores contacted Fred Garcia, a JCC account executive, to assist with recruiting. Flores, who works in Granada's Mexico office, traveled to the West Oxnard Career Center where she made an employment presentation to 15 potential candidates on August 4. "She met each candidate face to face, collected resumes and had them take an online test to determine voice and telephone skills," says Garcia. "Two of the applicants were hired." The new employees are currently in training and are studying to receive their state insurance license.

Granada Corporation, a Santa Barbara-based company, seeks to hire up to 50 additional employees by the end of the year for customer service, sales and collection positions. Flores says that she will be recruiting again in Oxnard, using JCC services, within the next several months.

The second success story involves All New Technologies, Inc. (ANT Furnace), an Oxnard company that provides equipment for materials thermal processing. Owner Eric Gisonno contacted the JCCs after his wife heard a local radio spot highlighting free JCC employer services. In the past year, he has hired four employees through the centers, taking advantage of the Workforce Investment Act (WIA) on-the-job training program that underwrites training costs. "ANT does a lot of government projects, and employees have to be familiar with compliance issues," says Gisonno. "The training brings employees up to speed on how we do business. The Job & Career Centers were very helpful and eager to come up with solutions that work for our company."

"We introduced ANT to our services including recruitment, candidate screening and training opportunities," says Raul Ornelas, a JCC account executive. "Whenever ANT has a job opening, we find the resources to meet its staffing needs."

One of ANT's recent hires was Richard Beckley, a mechanical designer who had been laid off from his previous position in 2008. He enrolled in the Workforce Investment Act (WIA) dislocated worker program in September 2010. Beckley completed a WIA-funded on-the-job training program at ANT in March 2011, and ANT immediately hired him as a fulltime employee.

"Rick had good experience but it wasn’t specific to what we do here," says Gisonno. "We developed a plan where he could update his skills to the type of software we wanted him to use. The process was very successful."
“The WIB is extremely proud of the professional work being done by account executives like Fred and Raul,” said Alex Rivera, WIB chair. “It’s important that we continue to make Ventura County employers aware of the quality services available to them through the JCCs at no cost.”

Ventura, CA - Prostate cancer – the most common form of malignancy in men – will be the focus of a free seminar Community Memorial Health System is holding on Thursday, Nov. 17.

Ventura urologists Drs. Marc Beaghler, Seyed Khoddami and William Klope will lead the seminar that will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. in Community Memorial Hospital’s eighth-floor Nichols Auditorium. In addition, Prostate Specific Antigen testing will be available to seminar participants beginning at 5 p.m.

Approximately one in nine men will develop prostate cancer in their lives, and Drs. Beaghler, Khoddami and Klope say early detection and intervention can help reduce the number of 30,000 prostate cancer-related deaths each year in the U.S. They add that underestimating the disease is the most common cause of selecting the wrong treatment, and that PSA testing is one of the most reliable indicators for potential prostate health problems for men over 40.

Participants will receive information on what the test results mean and how the results are used to provide care for them. Results will be mailed to participants after the seminar.

The seminar’s physicians all are trained in minimally-invasive surgery and laparoscopic surgery, and are members of both the Community Memorial Hospital and the Ojai Valley Community Hospital medical staffs.

Dr. Beaghler received his Medical Degree from the Creighton University School of Medicine, Omaha, NE. He is currently a clinical professor of Urology at USC Keck School of Medicine, and a member of the American Urology Association.

Dr. Khoddami received his Medical Degree from the University of Tehran School of Medicine, Tehran, Iran. He is a clinical Assistant Professor of Urology at USC and a member of American Urology Association.

Dr. Klope received his Medical Degree from the Vanderbilt University School of Medicine, Nashville, TN. He is a Diplomate, American Board of Urology.

Admission is free, but space is limited, so reservations are required. Call (805) 652-6307, or visit www.cmhshealth.org/rsvp.

Community Memorial Hospital is located at 147 N. Brent St. in Ventura.

Sacramento, CA — The Franchise Tax Board (FTB) today reminded taxpayers that Monday, October 31, is the deadline to participate in its Voluntary Compliance Initiative 2 (VCI 2) for taxpayers who may have underreported their tax liabilities through the use of abusive tax avoidance transactions or offshore financial arrangements.

The amnesty program, directed by recent legislation (SB 86, Ch. 14) is an opportunity for taxpayers to voluntarily amend their 2010 and prior year income tax returns. Participating taxpayers must pay both the tax and interest in full. In return, taxpayers receive a waiver of most penalties and avoid potential criminal prosecution.

Advancements in technology, reporting requirements, and the data sharing between agencies (including the IRS) has allowed FTB to better identify taxpayers who may have underreported their income due to these schemes. FTB encourages taxpayers who qualify for this initiative to participate rather than risk a full range of penalties, interest, and potential criminal prosecution.

Taxpayers wanting to participate must have amended returns and participation agreements postmarked or faxed by October 31, 2011. There are no extensions.

For more information, visit FTB’s VCI 2 webpage or call 888.825.9868.

Ventura, CA - Ventura County Public Health and Food Share of Ventura County are hosting a healthy food distribution event and community garden grand opening to celebrate the first annual national Food Day on Monday October 24, 2011. The event will be held in Oxnard at the Camino Del Sol community garden, at the corner of Camino Del Sol and Garfield, from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Activities will include free produce distribution and healthy food cooking demonstrations.

Resource tables on obesity prevention programs, health coverage options, and Cal Fresh and WIC programs will also be available. Supervisor John Zaragoza and a representative from Congresswoman Lois Capps’s office will be at the event to welcome families and help distribute the produce that Food Share is donating.

Food Day is a national campaign to celebrate healthy, affordable foods produced in a way that is aimed at promoting healthy, sustainable, affordable, and fair food systems in America. Spearheaded by the nonprofit Center for Science in the Public Interest, Food Day is organized around six main policy goals:
1. Reduce diet-related disease by promoting safe, healthy foods.
2. Support sustainable farms and limit subsidies to big agribusiness.
3. Expand access to food and alleviate hunger.
4. Protect the environment and animals by reforming factory farms.
5. Promote health by curbing junk-food marketing to kids.
6. Support fair working conditions for food-service and farm workers.

“When 63 percent of Americans are obese or overweight, 25.8 million of them children and diet-related diseases like diabetes and heart disease are skyrocketing, it’s hard to ignore the problem,” says Dr. Robert Levin, Public Health Officer.

Diet-related health is the most visible, and talked about problem, but there is a lot more to food than
meets the eye. Food Day draws attention to: food deserts (areas where fresh, healthy, affordable foods are scarce), the wages of workers in the food system, the consequences of concentrated animal feeding operations, the importance of sustainable agriculture, and the type of food-messages targeted at our children.

On Thursday, over 8 million Californians Will Practice Earthquake Safety as Part of "Great California ShakeOut"

Oakland, CA - As part of its ongoing efforts to encourage Americans to prepare for all hazards, The U.S. Department of Homeland Security's Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is encouraging all Californians to participate in the "Great California ShakeOut" on Thursday, October 20, 2011. The ShakeOut is the state's annual public earthquake drill, organized by the Earthquake Country Alliance. During the drill, which will be conducted at 10:20 am pacific standard time, anyone can practice how to protect themselves during and after a major earthquake - whether at work, at home or at school. To date, over 8.4 million Californians have signed up.

"Californians have a strong tradition of practicing earthquake safety and have set a great example for the rest of us about how to prepare for disasters. The ShakeOut drill is a great way to get your ready for emergencies and connect with those who are also at risk for an earthquake," said FEMA Regional Administrator Nancy Ward. "As recent earthquakes in Haiti, New Zealand, Japan, and the east coast of the U.S. remind us, earthquakes can strike anytime, anywhere - and often happen without warning. While we don't know where the next earthquake will strike, preparing for them helps people become more resilient in the face of a real disaster."

California's ShakeOut event continues to grow as the largest earthquake drill in U.S. history. Participating in the ShakeOut drill is simple and free - and everyone can participate, including businesses, government offices, organizations, neighborhoods, schools, and individuals. To join, visit www.shakeout.org/register and pledge your school, business, or organization's participation in the drill. Registered participants will receive information on how to plan their drill and how to talk with others about earthquake preparedness.

While FEMA encourages California residents to register for Thursday's ShakeOut event, we also encourage people across the country to prepare for earthquakes. Practicing for earthquakes should occur in all areas of the country and can be practiced at any time, even if there isn't an organized earthquake drill in your community. People can also visit www.ready.gov for important earthquake preparedness tips so that you can protect yourself and your loved ones in the event of an earthquake.

FEMA's mission is the support our citizens and first responders to ensure that as a nation we work together to build, sustain, and improve our capability to prepare for, protect against, respond to, recover from, and mitigate all hazards.
