The Oxnard Journal Bows Down. .
This is perhaps the most important message ever printed on the OxJo - but the O-J's gotta bow down and make amends. Firstly, the editorial jabs that were asserted on the Story on campaign finances for the Oxnard City Council Candidates was harsh. I knew it as editor and still printed them. That Story is now removed from the site.
Massive Public Apolgies for the slant taken against ALL the Council Candidates. Some got hit worse than others -- but the fairness was not there and I failed. This Will Never be done by this news source again.
An Oxnard Citizen came up to me tonight at the Southbank INCC Forum and shined the light on my nakeness. She said "You have a voice, greater than most citizens in the City of Oxard and with that comes the awesome responsibility to be accurate in my reporting and to get all sides of the story."
I failed in this and want to publically apologize to you Nancy, and to the Other Readers who may sometimes read and wonder what the Point is that the OxJo Wants to put forth.
To Saul Medina, a fine young man whom the OxJo has supported in the past and still sees promise in....he is doing well on his own this time around, and the Oxnard Journal wants to set the record clear that half of Saul's contributions were under one huindred dollars (the campaign finance report threshold for reporting) and the remaining half were from individuals and local businesses.
The Oxnard Journal inaccurately portrayed the majority of his support coming from developers.
This is now the Record.
The Oxnard Journal wants to thank Andres Herrera for his gentlemanly considerations he has offered me and the Oxnard Journal and the Journal wants to accept his kindness by providing an apology to him for the un-needed editorial jabs in the report. Andres had a smile and handshake for the Editor, even though this reporting was widely known and surely known to him also. I call that tact.
Now On To the Other Reporting --- the OxJo is Here to stay and to serve the community of OXNARD
/s/ Bill Winter- Editor - Oxnard Journal-e
The Oxnard Journal wants to Commend the Ventura County Star for it's Editorial printed in it's mid-week Wednesday Edtion:
Not sure who wrote the editorial, but the Star is commended for it's point of view - relative to the situation of Oxnard Vs. Rainbow Recovery and the College Park Land Grab that's currently underway. Stay tuned for more and Vote for Martin Jones.
It heartens the OxJo to say something positive about the STAR. . .
Your News Story can appear here:::::
Camarillo, Calif., October 10, 2002 The public is invited to attend a fall open house at California State University Channel Islands, Saturday, November 2, from 9 a.m. to noon.
The event will allow students who may be considering CSUCI, and their friends and families, to visit with faculty and staff members, see the classrooms, and become more familiar with the campus.
Activities will take place in the historic bell tower building and include informational workshops and presentations given by members of the faculty.
University President, Dr. Richard Rush, encourages the community to visit the campus. We invite especially those people who have not yet had a chance to come out and see this wonderful campus, to do so November 2. We are anxious to share with you the beauty and the community feeling that are here at CSUCI each day. We are confident that when the students see the campus and have a chance to visit with the world-class faculty which has come to teach here, they will have Cal State Channel Islands at the top of their college lists.
Tours of the campus including the art studios, high tech computer labs and the beautiful campus grounds will also be available.
Those attending are also encouraged to bring a brown bag lunch and visit the new student union. While the event is free and open to all, to ensure adequate parking, attendees are encouraged to RSVP to 805-437 CSCI (2724).
New Columnist Reports for Duty.
Known as "Kapitan", this youthful Oxnard writer wants to make Oxnard Shine and the Oxnard Journal wants nothing more for our beautiful city. Here are some of his ideas --- Stand-by for more from Kapitan...
The Oxnard Journal - Representing the City of Oxnard. Cool to be here, in the digital mix.
--Did you hear the name of Manny Lopez mentioned on the George Lopez Show on ABC-7? The Lopez Connection is happening.
Oxnard IS The Championship
City - Oxnard regularly makes the Finals as a high rated high
profile. Yesterday - four out of five high schools won their games.
Did you see the Vargas v. De La Hoya Fight? We could loose that fight and still be Community...
Chief Art Lopez did Advance - he advanced on the national scene. We are the lucky ones, not LA 'cause we kept a good man.
Oxnard Needs Prayer --- Several E-mails and unsolicited suggestions have come in to the OxJo and the focus is on a desperate need for returning to values, to spiritual affairs and to fight the evil that is coming to visit us. Shooting and violence in South Oxnard (SOX)~~ Three unsolved shootings in the North City (NOX) and a general contempt for peace throughout the globe.
LOS ARTISTAS -- Children teaching
"The Art of Just Caring"
We need your help. We need your prayers. We need to keep our living legend.
This is a request to place the South Oxnard Community on every prayer list we can be placed on.
From a South Oxnard Resident.
South Oxnard residents have been speaking faithfully at the City Council on behalf of the one truly praise worthy endeavor that has taken place over the past eighteen years in our community. It consists of some very brave ladies who decided to make one little part of this world a better place than how they found it.
Through sweat and labor and love they have done just that.
We have within our midst a living legend and a story of Love, Hope and Faith that our children so desperately need to know about. Rainbow Recovery is being threatened by non-caring and big-business interests.
These ladies help many people and have rehabilitated more than 1000 drug addicted mothers and sisters and members of families. They have more requests for help than they can possible meet and they take people from jail that do not have a dime, or off the streets and help them rebuild their lives.
There are people within our community who have decided that the Rainbow Ladies, as this center of Hope and Caring is known, have to move to make room for a museum. This (in my opinion) is a State Land Grab
Taking land and space that is needed for the thirty thousand children living in South Oxnard.
The Oxnard College is right beside the park and the museum could be used to help this State Institution perpetuate itself and some of the Educators perpetuate their careers or/and (in my opinion) there could perhaps be some illegal kickbacks floating around for providing free space to a government ran State institution. This will be on the agenda at 7:00 pm in the City Coucil Chambers, this Tuesday, July the 2nd.
I am an educator. There are other places for a museum but the other places are not free, as taking the acreage in this park would be. Please pray that the South Oxnard Community can save this rehabilitation center that has brought to our community love, caring and hope for many. These ladies have made their contribution to this community and should be permitted to stay in the houses they rescued along with the human beings they have helped.
Please help us say NO to big money, and a land grab coming ahead of human needs.
