BRIEFLY DUO FACE ROBBERY CHARGES IN COURT.

SIMI VALLEY - Two men are scheduled to be arraigned today on charges of robbery and conspiracy for their part in robbing a teen-ager of his bicycle, authorities said.

Juan Cervantes and Jorge Guerrero, both 19, are being held in Ventura County Jail in lieu of $55,000 and $50,000 bond, respectively.

Simi Valley police officials said Guerrero stopped a 16-year-old male in the area of Patricia Street and Erringer Road and demanded his bicycle. When the youth refused, police said, Guerrero struck him several times with his hands.

The victim then got off the bike and Guerrero rode away, police say.

A passing motorist flagged down a Simi Valley patrol officer and said the suspect was in a nearby van. Several police units performed a traffic stop, found the bicycle inside and arrested Cervantes and Guerrero, police said.

Pleasant Valley Pool is reopened

CAMARILLO - The Pleasant Valley Pool reopened after being closed intermittently over a three-day period following three separate incidents of children becoming sick in the pool.

The pool reopened Saturday after being closed last Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and being ``superchlorinated'' as required by county health code, said Amy Damron, aquatics director for the Pleasant Valley Recreation and Park District.

``We've had to close the pool before when kids get sick, but never before, in the 20 years since I've been working here, has it happened three days in a row,'' said Bob Stallings, recreation superintendent with the park district.

Stallings said it was not pool water that made the children sick. Refunds were given to parents whose children were unable to attend scheduled swimming lessons on those days, Damron said.

Facciano is expected to remain at the chamber for 30 days before taking on new duties with the association.

Saliba, who will now work for a certified public accounting firm, headed the Taxpayers Association for more than seven years.

The Board of Supervisors honored his service by presenting him with a resolution.

``You never came to complain, you came to offer solutions,'' said Supervisor Judy Mikels.

Veterans center won't be closed

VENTURA - Siding with Ventura County veterans, the Board of Supervisors announced Tuesday that the Oxnard Veterans Services Center would not be closed as had been proposed under cost-cutting plans.

Interim Chief Administrative Officer Harry Hufford said cuts would be made elsewhere.

The Human Services Agency, which oversees veterans services and faces $700,000 in budget cuts, had initially proposed closing the office and having the staff rotate among the county's seven job centers - which drew opposition from veterans.
