Lacing up the

Remaining physically fit is important for everyone, but especially for seniors in their fight against Father Time. From age 65 on, staying in shape is a constant uphill battle.

A Three Springs makeover

The homeowners association at Three Springs in Westlake Village started construction last week to remodel the 30-year-old entrance to the neighborhood.

Area code gets called to duty

Soon, Ventura County residents will be forced to reprogram their iPhones and Androids—and even their old-school land lines that have speed dial. On June 2, calls from one 805 area-code number to another will require dialing 805 in addition to the seven-digit number. This means any saved automatic-dial numbers programmed into phones (without 805) will have to be updated. The […]
