Opting for high-minded political discussion instead of the Bowlful of Blues, 260 Ojaians converged on the Matilija Junior High School Auditorium Sept. 17 for the Ojai Chautaugua.
As Los Angeles Times columnist Steve Lopez put it, “you could be out riding horses and watching the pink moment and instead you're here.”
Students from Oak Grove School, Nordhoff High School, Villanova Preparatory School and Oaks Christian School were among those in attendance.
