Bush 2008
With the 2006 Congressional races on the first wave, the second wave holds the future
with the 2008 Presidential Election.  Woman-power could be the key.
  This fight of the sexes
may take an unusual turn.   Vice President Dick Cheney, (R) Wyoming - has recently endorsed Laura Bush
as a good potential Presidential candidate. 
Could the Grand Old Party be planning a Grand Old Fight on the
ballot of November 2008 by pitting First Lady Laura Bush against former First Lady and now New York State
Senator Hillary Clinton?

Look at the trend - Dr. Irene Pinkard almost got the Council seat, and he did well in her first run for Council.

City of Oxnard looks at mushrooming problems brought on by past Council's unrestrained approach to Development.

Under the leadership of Mayor Holden, city departments are under orders to take a serious look at the results of past
development and to look at what is currently happening within the city as far as authorized and unauthorized building
is concerned.
This is why Oxnard's Neighborhood Services program supports the Neighborhood Councils and their umbrella
organization the Inter - Neighborhood Council Forum (INCF).

Discussion / Problem-Solving
Over Parking in R-1 Zoned Residential (Single Family) Neighborhoods
Purpose: Provide ideas, neighborhood feedback, and visioning for advising the Oxnard Planning Commission/Planning Departments on proposed ordinance to be presented to the Oxnard City Council. INCF First Vice Chairman
Joe Avelar will moderate the discussion.


Open Letter to the Neighborhood Chairs:

At the upcoming INCF General Membership Meeting on June 1, 2005, we will be hosting a discussion on Code Enforcement with Sgt. Jim Stallings giving an overview on areas of concern to the neighborhoods. This is your time to ask questions or take notes.

We are also taking on a new role, which in essence, is the primary reason the INCF was formed in the first place. We are going to have a Problem-Solving Discussion to offer the City of Oxnard our ideas on how to solve over-parking in
 R-1 Zoned Residential (Single Family) Neighborhoods. The Planning Commission has come to the INCF seeking city-wide neighborhood input for ALL suggestions we can come up with to solve the problems that new additions to existing homes are creating on the streets of Oxnard in the form of over-parking.

Please plan to attend, bring members of your board and invite concerned residents in your neighborhood to come and share ideas, solutions and views on the issue of parking. Our suggestions will be drafted into a letter the INCF will present to the Planning Commission, which it will use for guidance when it proposes an ordinance addressing this problem.

This is your time to contribute in a big way to city planning.

Bill Winter INCF Chairman

Martin Jones' take on the Downtown Movie Theatre.......So the city fathers of Oxnard decide to build a theater in downtown Oxnard in spite of their own consultants said it would fail.  Oh well it's only a forty million dollar liability for the taxpayers.  Mere peanuts when compared in the aggregate to the other sweetheart deals. by are our ever so wise city fathers.  --  See the Background Story on what is happening to movie theaters nationwide.

 - May 27th NYT Story backs up Jones ....Read it here.

It is the Soldier, not the reporter who has given us freedom of press
It is the Soldier, not the poet who has given us freedom of speech
It is the Soldier, not the campus organizer who gives us freedom to demonstrate
It is the Soldier who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag
Who allows the protester to burn the flag?
--Father Dennis Edward O'Brien

    Please keep your prayers coming. We had 10 people scheduled to go on the trip to Thailand. One of the women fell and broke her hip last week. She will be unable to go on the trip. She was replaced by a 17 year old boy. Another woman was coming to our meeting yesterday and she was cut-off on route 80. She flipped her car. I saw the car being put on the flatbed upside down, but had no idea it was her car! She has many bumps and bruise but it looks like nothing major. Please pray that she will be OK (her name is Alysha) and still able to come. The leaders father has some tumors in his intestines and will need to be operated on next week. Pray that everything goes OK so that the leader can go on the trip. Pray for the rest of us to stay safe!

    thanks you so much for your prayers,

A Navy officer was cutting through the crew's quarters of his ship one day and happened upon a sailor reading a magazine with his feet up on the small table in front of him.
"Sailor! Do you put your feet up on the furniture at home?" the officer demanded.
"No, sir, but we don't land airplanes on the roof either."

  I recently purchased some tickets through Priceline.com and received an unwanted charge against my American Express Credit Card for $9.00 from RESERVATIONREWARDS.COM in my April AMEX bill. I failed to catch it though and caught it on my bill for June. It appears that RESERVATIONREWARDS.COM and PRICELINE.COM are in collusion with each other. Priceline.com gave them my credit card number without my permission. There are other online companies that are in collusion with RESERVATIONREWARDS.COM too. This is a heads-up for all of you to be aware of these internet companies and some of their shady practices. American Express, a company that I done business with for several years have graciously taken care of the problem for me; however, some of the people have had their bank accounts charged and it is not as easy to resolve the problem as dealing with the American Express.
This site: http://www2.unplannedthought.com:8080/archives/2003/08/19/scam_artists.php has several (100s) of complaints about RESERVATIONREWARDS.COM. Some of the few companies in collusion with RESERVATIONREWARDS.COM that have been mentioned are listed below:

During a visit to the mental asylum, a visitor asked the Director what
is the criteria that defines a patient to be institutionalised. "Well,"
said the Director, "we fill up a bathtub, we offer a teaspoon, a teacup,
and a bucket to the patient and ask the patient to empty the bathtub"

Okay, here's your test:

(Those with an abnormal tendency will scroll to the bottom to get the
answer before even taking this test! There is a classification for you
too. )
1. Would you use the spoon?
2. Would you use the teacup?
3. Would you use the bucket?
"Oh, I understand," said the visitor. "A normal person would choose the
bucket as it is larger than the spoon or the cup."
"Noooooo," answered the Director. "A normal person would pull the plug.

.The US Postal service sent out a message to all letter carriers to put a sheet of Bounce in their uniform pockets to keep yellow jackets away. The yellow jackets just veer around you. And all this time you've! just been putting Bounce in the dryer!

It will chase ants away when you lay a sheet near them.

It also repels mice. Spread them around foundation areas, or in
trailers, cars that are sitting and it keeps mice from entering your vehicle.

It takes the odor out of books and photo albums that don't get opened too often.

Repels mosquitoes. Tie a sheet of Bounce through a belt loop when outdoors during mosquito season.

Eliminates static electricity from your television (or computer)
screen. Since Bounce is designed to help eliminate static cling, wipe your television screen with a used sheet of Bounce to keep dust from resettling.

Dissolve soap scum from shower doors. Clean w ith a sheet of Bounce.

Freshen the air in your home. Place an individual sheet of Bounce in a drawer or hang in the closet.

Put Bounce sheet in vacuum cleaner.

Prevent thread from tangling. Run a threaded needle through sheet of Bounce before beginning to sew.

Prevent musty suitcases. Place an individual sheet of Bounce inside empty luggage before storing.

Freshen the air in your car. Place a sheet of Bounce under the front seat.

Clean baked-on foods from a cooking pan. Put a sheet in a pan, fill with water, let sit overnight, and sponge clean. The antistatic agent apparently weakens the bond between the food.

Eliminate odors in wastebaskets.. Place a sheet of Bounce at the bottom of the wastebasket.

Collect cat hair. Rubbing the area with a sheet of Bounce will
magnetically attract all the loose hairs.

Eliminate static electricity from Venetian blinds. Wipe the blinds with a sheet of Bounce to prevent dust from resettling.

Wipe up sawdust from drilling or sand papering. A used sheet of Bounce will collect sawdust like a tack cloth.

Eliminate odors in dirty laundry. Place an individual sheet of Bounce at the bottom of a laundry bag or hamper.
Deodorize shoes or sneakers. Place a sheet of Bounce in your shoes or sneakers overnight.

Golfers put a Bounce sheet in their back pocket to keep the bees away.

Put a Bounce sheet in your sleeping bag and tent before folding and storing them. Keeps them smelling fresh.

And now that you know, print and keep on file or bounce (pass) it around. :-)
