BRIEFLY 2 VENTURA COUNTY MEN SHOT TO DEATH.

Two men were found dead in Ventura County in apparently unrelated cases, sheriff's deputies reported Saturday.

About 5:30 p.m. Friday, deputies found a 71-year-old man dead on the floor in his home in the 12500 block of Mountain Trail Street in Moorpark.

The victim, identified as Dennis Wood, was found after authorities received a call from worried relatives who hadn't seen him for some time.

Wood had gunshot wounds to the chest, but the cause of his death was still under investigation Saturday, officials said.

In the other case, a driver spotted the body of 21-year-old Daniel Campos in the 3400 block of Hailes Road south of Camarillo about 1 a.m. Saturday, officials said.

Campos suffered a gunshot wound to the head, and Ventura County Fire Department personnel pronounced him dead at the scene, authorities said.

Alarcon honored by student group

State Sen. Richard Alarcon on Friday received the University of California Student Association's ``Legislator of the Year'' award for his commitment and dedication to California's higher-education students.

Alarcon was selected, said Liz Geyer, UCSA executive director, because he exemplifies true leadership and commitment to access and higher education during difficult budgetary times, specifically in regard to his defense of outreach programs.

``Alarcon has been a staunch defender of higher education,'' Geyer said, ``when few legislators would stand up for what is right.''
