Our Ojai cam is the latest victim in the wake of the July 2014 water main break that flooded the Ojai Playhouse and Jester. The building's owner, who has donated the spot for the camera and its related equipment for many years, shut off the utilities needed to operate the camera pending a resolution of his effort to get Golden State Water Company to pay for the needed repairs. We appreciate your patience as we look for a suitable temporary location.

It’s been almost 10 years since Cally Houck lost her daughters, Jacqueline and Raechel Houck, in a horrific fire and crash caused by a safety defect in a rented Chrysler PT Cruiser. Tuesday, the Ojai mom appeared at a press conference in Sacramento in support of a bill by State Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson that would require car dealers to inspect and repair used cars for safety defects before sale or loan.
