"The American Dream lives on in Minnesota as we shocked the world. I'll bet you they're never going to take the people lightly again, are they?"He declined to run for a second term, and in 2002, Minnesota Public Radio reported that "Ventura inherited a $4 billion surplus, and leaves office with the state facing a $4.5 billion deficit."Some high points of his term included the building of a light-rail line that serves Minneapolis and St. Paul, and the overhaul of the state's property tax system.Critics said at the time that Ventura would have achieved more had he been more cooperative with legislators."There are times he just charmed you tremendously.

"And in the next minute, you'll be shaking your head and saying, 'You know, I don't want anything to do with the individual.'"Arnold SchwarzeneggerPerhaps an even stronger comparison can be made between the "Terminator" star and Trump, particularly since Schwarzenegger was tapped to take over "Celebrity Apprentice" when Trump had to bow out to run for President.Schwarzenegger won the 2003 recall election for Governor of California and was reelected in 2006.A 2010 Time magazine article about his legacy as governor quoted journalist Joe Matthews as saying Schwarzenegger "was an 'illustrative failure' in regards to the two-thirds supermajority votes needed to pass a budget and taxes in California and in trying to work within the existing system to move the state ahead."But Schwarzenegger did do some good, Mathews said."He did us a great service because he tried everything," Mathews said. "He fought with people, he circumvented the legislature and went to the ballot measure, he compromised, he tried for spending caps, rainy day funds, raising taxes, cutting programs, working with the Republicans, working with the Democrats."TM & © 2016 Cable News Network, Inc., a Time Warner Company.

JC Oberst: Important week for nation and veterans - Ventura County Star

Monday, November 07, 2016

There are over 324 million Americans and only 22 million veterans. Less than 1 percent of the population is serving in the military today. At last year’s Veterans Day ceremony in Ventura, Capt. Chris Janke, commanding officer Naval Base Ventura County, observed the busy traffic nearby and reflected that in years past the streets were empty on Veterans Day. You would see flags flying and could go to a parade to honor veterans. Today, we still have many Veterans Day events but it is more of a special event than a community affair.In Ventura County and the surrounding areas, many Veterans Day ceremonies will be held to recognize the service of local veterans. I hope you will take the time to attend one of them. If you go, introduce yourself to a veteran and learn something about them and their service.If you are unable to get out and would still like to recognize our veterans, Wendy Pierro, the engagement editor at the Ventura County Star, is working on a social media project for Veteran's Day. She is asking people to call and leave a voice message to say thank you or honor a veteran in your life or just to thank all veterans. You are welcome to email a photo for a slideshow that will run on Veteran's Day. Call 764-1166 to talk about the veteran in your life or leave a thank you message for all of the men and women who have served in our military. Please keep your message between 30 and 45 seconds. If you have photos you would like to share with your message, email them to wendy.pierro@vcstar.com. Start your message by stating your name and city of residence. All messages and photos must be submitted by noon Wednesday. Messages and photos will be shared on Veteran's Day at vcstar.com and on their social media.If you want to find a veterans memorial near you, there is an online presentation on the gcvf.org website that provides photos and the location of all Ventura County’s military museums, veteran’s memorials and road signs.If you know a veteran who needs a wheelchair, the Knights of Columbus and the American Wheelchair Mission have new wheelchairs for veterans and veteran organizations.

Nancy Reagan's death means business and a huge supporting role for Simi Valley - LA Daily News

Monday, September 19, 2016

Library — the best attended presidential museum in the United States — is a huge source of pride for the city.The city annexed the library, which sees between 350,000 to 400,000 visitors a year, from Ventura County in 2010.Nancy Reagan’s death “rightly puts the focus on a world-class museum, not the city, that Ronald and Nancy Reagan nurtured,” he said. “We do everything we can to assist them in our city. We have and will continue to do that.”The city is playing a support role to the Reagan family and the library in the coming days, said Assistant City Manager Brian Gabler. The Police Department is working with federal agencies and the library on security and providing street and traffic control where needed. He noted the city has been in the spotlight before with the high-profile events that have happened at the library.“Visitors who come here will see it’s a wonderful place,” he said. “We’re just looking to make sure they have a good experience.”Meanwhile, other business owners hope the influx of visitors will translate into an increase in sales over the next few days.Kristina McClure, owner of Old School Sandwiches & Salads located on Madera Road near the library, said her small restaurant saw about a 25 percent increase in business over two days during the Republican presidential debate held at the library last year.“Being in a small town, it’s nice to have a surge of business because every little bit helps,” she said.Matt Migdali, manager at Ali Baba’s Cafe in the same strip mall, said the Reagan Library has brought in many customers over the years to the Middle Eastern restaurant.“We get a lot of people from the South or the Midwest,” he said. “They’ve never seen hummus before ... It’s wonderful that we can share that with people.”Details on the public opportunities to pay respects to Nancy Reagan, including shuttle information, can be found at the library’s website at www.reaganfoundation.org.
